Publisher's Summary

Emma Slade was a high-flying debt analyst for a large investment bank when she was taken hostage in a hotel room on a business trip to Jakarta. She thought she was lucky to come out of it unscathed, but over the ensuing weeks and months, as the financial markets crashed, Emma became her own distressed asset as the trauma following the event took hold.
Realising her view on life had profoundly changed, she embarked upon a journey, discovering the healing power of yoga and, in Bhutan, opening her eyes to a kinder, more peaceful way of living.
From fast-paced city life to the stillness of Bhutan's Himalayan mountains, Set Free is the inspiring true story of Emma's astonishing life lived to extremes and all that that entails: work, travel, spirituality, Buddhism, relationships, and the underlying question of what makes a meaningful life.

Amazing and beautiful

I’m surprised that this book does not have more raving reviews. It’s such a beautiful book and Emma’s voice is so soothing. One of my favourite books on buddhism. Wonderful and inspiring story. Thank you, Emma, for writing this and for all the work you are doing to help others.
