Day 88: Varun Soni

Venice Beach, CA, United States

This peace offering comes from the conversations my wife and I have been having with our daughter about our family’s ethics and values. This offering of peace is a way for us as a family to think about what matters to us and how we can be the change we want to see in the world.


Varun Soni is the dean of religious and spiritual life at the University of Southern California, where he also serves as vice provost of campus wellness and crisis intervention and teaches courses in the School of Religion and the Chan Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy. He holds degrees in religion from Tufts University, Harvard University, the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the University of Cape Town, as well as a law degree from the University of California, Los Angeles.


As a family, light a candle each night for 21 days, take five deep breaths, and visualize the light of peace in your heart and in the world.
