Anlor Davin, Author
 

Anlor Davin is the author of Being Seen, a memoir about a French woman with autism struggling not only to be seen, but to be understood and respected. Anlor’s childhood was beset by overwhelming sensory chaos and trouble navigating the social world. Without having a name for her condition, Anlor moved to America where she survived a new culture without the support of her family. After teaching in Chicago, Anlor moved to California where she found Zen meditation. Today, Anlor works to help people understand her way of being and the value of meditation in living and thriving with autism.
