Zareena Yvonne “Vonnie” Faroqui 
Vonnie was born in Saginaw, Michigan and raised in Dryden, Ontario, Canada. She is a freelance writer, actor, director, poet, storyteller, workshop facilitator, and artist.

As a medicine woman, spirit warrior, musician, drummer, circle facilitator, and all around creative, Vonnie uses her gifts to the enrichment and fostering of healing, self-expression, and empowerment in self-recovery, through her writing and many creative projects.
Vonnie’s dream is to one day own and operate a creative empowerment spiritual retreat center and campground, where she will write, speak and facilitate workshops with like minded light workers, offering a safe haven for others seeking a healing path of creative self recovery, balance, and empowerment. 
Vonnie and her husband, Irfan Faroqui, were married January 19th, 2001.
