SKYE+FAM IS THE AUTHOR OF FOUR BOOKS WHOSE STORIES CELEBRATE FAMILY AND EMPOWER CHILDREN (AND ADULTS!) TO FEEL CENTERED, SUPPORTED,
AND LOVED IN THE WORLD.
Skye, age nine, co-authored four children’s books with her mom and dad, Payel and Joe Farasat. Skye has been meditating with her parents since she was a baby. She shares her simple yet powerful techniques of staying mindful and grounded while forming her space in the family and finding her place in the world.
Skye is a fourth grader and has been a student of Waldorf education since age four. Since Waldorf pedagogy centers around inner work, Skye leaves us with exploratory questions and white space for interactive exercises, so we too can practice our inner work around our own family and self-love along with her.
Joe and Payel are Skye’s parents. Both are financial services executives, certified in coaching, consulting, and mindfulness.
Joe envisioned the concept of their first book, So Many Ways To Be Family, after his divorce many years ago when he searched everywhere for a comforting and empowering children’s book for his three young sons that was supportive of blended families. After getting married and growing their family, Joe and Payel expanded the concept to include cultural, socioeconomic, and mixed families and people. Skye couldn’t agree more, and so they started working on completing (what began as just an idea of trying to do one book into) a series of four books together during the lockdown when Skye was age seven and displaying her own resonation with mindfulness, inner work, and storytelling.
