Defne Suman -born in Istanbul, Turkey- is an author, student and teacher of Hatha Yoga, a source of inspiration to many people, a traveler and a citizen of the world. Defne’s fascination with human psyche and her curiosity to discover the hidden dynamics behind various social interactions brought her to complete a graduate degree at Boğaziçi University’s Sociology Department. However, upon completion of her MA, instead of continuing with PhD at UCLA where she was admitted with full scholarship in 2003, she decided to do something new and hit the road toward South East Asia, leaving academia and her academically-oriented family behind.

Since then, she is learning and teaching Hatha Yoga, traveling the world and the seven seas and resting in

Evden Kaçmanın Yolları!

Evlere tıkıldığımız koskoca bir yılın ardından huzurlarınızda EVDEN KAÇMANIN YOLLARI! 

Evden Kaçmanın Yolları, Doğan Kitap, Nisan 2021

Bu kitap geçen Eylül ayında aklıma düştü. Bir hayaldi. Çocukluğumda ne çok evden kaçtığımı (sadece ikinci kata kadar inebiliyordum ama özgürlüğü kanıma sızıyordu), lise yıllarında nereye gittiğini bilmediğim otobüslere binerek bile isteye şehirde kaybolduğumu, an

“Would you like to save the world from the degradation and destruction it seems destined for? Then step away from shallow mass movements and quietly go to work on your own self-awareness. If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.”
Lao Tzu

Tom Robbins
“A person's looking for a simple truth to live by, there it is. CHOICE. To refuse to passively accept what we've been handed by nature or society, but to choose for ourselves. CHOICE. That's the difference between emptiness and substance, between a life actually lived and a wimpy shadow cast on an office wall.”
Tom Robbins, Still Life with Woodpecker

Hannah Arendt
“A life spent entirely in public, in the presence of others, becomes, as we would say, shallow”
Hannah Arendt

Oscar Wilde
“the moment that an artist takes notice of what other people want, and tries to supply the demand, he ceases to be an artist, and becomes a dull or an amusing craftsman, an honest or a dishonest tradesman. He has no further claim to be considered as an artist.”
Oscar Wilde, The Soul of Man Under Socialism

L.M. Montgomery
“I am very careful to be shallow and conventional where depth and originality are wasted.”
Lucy Maud Montgomery
