AMMA, the *hugging mother*, is coming to London this month to hug as many Londoners as she can possibly fit in a day.
Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, known as Amma, is a Hindu spiritual leader famous for transferring her energy to her devotees through physical contact. With Amma, hugging takes on a both metaphorical and literal relevance: it is a compassionate act but also a medium to pass on good, powerful vibes.
Amma also runs an Ashram in South of India (Kerala), welcoming thousands of followers, although, being a globetrotter, she hardly resides there these days.
Amma's UK visit's Calendar can be found here.
