Linda Cruse is a frontline humanitarian aid worker whose experience of life and near-death have given her a unique insight into the human psyche. Linda’s journey of self-transformation started a long time before that.

“In the early 1990s I thought I had everything—married with two wonderful children, living in a smart town house, enjoying a challenging career in nursing—when unexpectedly it all came to an end. I found myself divorced. To make ends meet I had to leave nursing, ending up in a job I hated, one which made me miserable and anxious. In 1996, I was driving home from work on a busy motorway when a powerful headache developed.  In a panic, I pulled over to the hard shoulder where I remained for some time unable to see—the stress had brought on temporary blindness.

During these moments, alone and terrified, I vowed that if I could just get home safely, I would make serious changes to my life. This was to be the start of a scary, lonely but emotionally fulfilling journey: teaching skills and bringing aid, and above all, love, to war-torn refugees, the poverty stricken and victims of disaster around the world.

But more than that, it was the moment I changed my life from negative to positive forever. I called this my Emergency Zen—with absolute determination and passion in three months I eliminated negativity from my life, reconnected with my passion and purpose, set myself back on my path and have gone on to live a happy and fulfilled life, inspiring others to do the same.”
