Akal Pritam's life as a dharma artist began in early childhood, when she displayed a natural talent for communication. She has worked as a fashion art director both in Australia and internationally. In the mid 1990s Akal completely changed her approach to life, practising yoga and meditation and studying metaphysics and healing with whole foods, and writing many internationally successful books. Akal and her life partner created an organic, raw food, vegan cafe and well-being store that attracted many souls who wanted to self-nurture and reclaim their health. Akal created ranges of raw vegan food and chocolate, aromatherapy, herbal and chai teas and unique gifts, and ran workshops on plant-based living, self-healing practices, aromatherapy and the chakras. Living with her family in wild and beautiful Byron Bay in northern New South Wales, Australia, Akal is now focused on creating unique books, gift products and art that is food for the soul. Her work resonates with a diverse range of individuals and inspires them to self-love and grow the light of their own soul. 'Your life is meant to feel good, it is meant to be fun and it is meant to be exciting. You are a most wonderful, beautiful human being; it's time to realise this and take a deeper journey to self-love.'
