Politics and business

MANCHESTER - Five-time Vermont State Senator, business entrepreneur (co-founder of Jogbra), and board member (Green Mountain Coffee Roasters), Hinda Miller will present her new memoir, "Pearls of a Sultana: What I've Learned About Politics, Business, and the Human Spirit," on Thursday, Sept. 27, 7 p.m.

Hinda Miller believes that a strong inner voyage for self-knowledge is the foundation of a successful and purposeful life. She has continually tried to bring spiritual practice into worldly endeavors, always practicing the integration of the material and spiritual world. To that end, she has been a seeker and student of yoga for over 30 years, teaching yoga to inmates, teenage moms, and women.

Since retiring (or as she phrases it, "retryment") she devotes her time to the Sultanas, an informal group of wise, elder women who have the wisdom and experience to make dramatic changes in the world.

Peter Welch, Vermont's representative in Congress has said "Hinda is a different breed of state senator who combined a successful, if unconventional, career in business with an acute and sensitive appreciation of life's spiritual dimension. It made her special in the rough and tumble of politics. And, to the surprise of many, it has made her very effective."
