Press Kit: Eiman Al Zaabi

Eiman Al Zaabi comes from a traditional Arab Muslim family in Abu Dhabi. After years of suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, and depression, she began a practice of energy healing, despite her family’s objections to what they felt was in conflict with her faith. Isolated from her family and feeling the loss of their support, Eiman uttered one prayer to God that became her affirmation: “Show me the bridge.” She made it her mission to bring the loving spirituality of Islam to a Western audience, laying out a blueprint for true peace and authentic living. 


Eiman pursued her journey of exploring science, the Quran, and the realm of spirituality to discern her own truth. The result is her debut book, The Art of Surrender, the first modern spirituality book incorporating the underlying principles of Islam: humility, peace and unity. 

Drawing on her Muslim heritage and her wise and careful exploration of a variety of spiritual traditions, Eiman Al Zaabi shows how the soul’s journey can lead us to the ultimate state of fulfillment and joy: surrender.


Eiman can discuss:


- questioning her faith and ultimately coming back to it

- the three primary soul needs based on her studies of various spiritual traditions

- the role of chaos theory in spirituality, and how we can calm our minds and fears


In her book, Eiman reminds us that surrender is not about being 'less than' anything or anyone. It is a lifelong journey and spiritual practice connected to true humility.


Eiman is a life coach and holds a degree in business information technology and a master’s in business administration. In addition to her private coaching practice, Eiman works at New York University, Abu Dhabi campus. She lives in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates with her husband and children.
