In Iran, I used to go to a Vipassana center.
One day I arrived there to see the police arresting some people who were inside.
They closed the center for no reason and my name and address were on file in the office.
I knew this meant I would always have to look over my shoulder, so I decided to leave the country and now I’m a refugee in Turkey.
