Amber Chand, a performer and storyteller, will perform at Stoneleigh-Burnham as part of the Miriam Emerson Peters Speaker Series. Her performance titled, “Searching For The Moon: A Heroine’s Journey, Tales of Love, Despair, Faith and Forgiveness,” will take place on Thursday, November 5 at 6:15 p.m. in the Capen Room. The performance will be 90 minutes and she will stay for a brief question and answer period after the performance.

This event is required of all students. Faculty, staff, and parents are invited to attend. It is also open to the public.

According to Amber’s biography, “Part memoir, part reflections, Amber’s performance is a journey into a world of Indian arranged marriages, British boarding schools, tyrannical African dictators,  encounters with Indian holy men and Rwandan genocide survivors and the rise and fall of her multimillion dollar company. Each is an evocative story reflecting the journey of one global woman as she awakens to her life.  Through her unique story, she reminds us that we are all heroes and heroines in the narrative of our life. Here,  courage, resilience, vulnerability are evoked as pathways to living from a place of enlivened authenticity.”

Amber has spent the past 20 years as a global entrepreneur supporting artisans living in vunerable regions of the world.  Aside from being a gifted storyteller, Amber is a Visionary Life and Business Coach. She also offers guided journeys to the foothills of the Himalayas in India and the cloud forest in Nicaragua each year.

Amber lives in Western Massachusetts. To learn more about her, please visit her website.
