About the founder

Desirae Thweatt, creator of Immersion Journals, lives in Boulder, CO where she is currently completing her M.A. in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism at Naropa University. The inspiration to create IJ came from her love of travel writing and the experience of immersing herself into various cultures around the world. She has studied abroad extensively throughout Northern India during her undergraduate program, and has also traveled through Spain, France, Belgium, Ireland, Brazil, and the Netherlands. Outside of writing and travel, her passions include teaching yoga, good food, and the performing arts.
