For months I had become increasingly interested in mindfulness & meditation and the idea of bringing these benefits out into the world.
Coupling these practices with cognition work very much resonated for me. In today's world I'm the type who needs at least some data to support new ideas or beliefs, so I appreciate that this program is grounded in science and backed by data, with meaningful lineage and serious depth of knowledge. More than enough to sink your teeth into.
Most importantly, Rajni is absolutely authentic at her core, a true subject matter expert, and the real-deal within this realm. Genuine authenticity in teaching is tops on my list, and my inner skeptic was blown to smithereens. Bottom line - if you're reading this, you're in the right place...

This training was simply transformative and I can never go back. I have added an abundance of tools to my coaching skill set that I acquired as a corporate trainer for a cosmetic company.
Rajni’s science based method of teaching the complexity of the brain, mind and body was smart, attainable and digestible. This has given me the ultimate confidence in communicating the benefits of mindfulness and meditation to anyone.
Her guidance has elevated my meditation practice and has me dropping in deeper, tuning into my body and its capabilities like never before. I have genuinely leveled up and I only have Rajni and this program to thank.

For years I've known the benefits of meditation and having a consistent practice, yet I struggled to integrate it into my life. About a year ago I finally started that journey and really dove into the science, the practices and the overall understanding.
Rajni's Mindfulness & Meditation course was a great addition to my initial foundation.
Rajni is a wealth of knowledge and having access to her one on one was a big plus of the program. Being able to ask questions as I went through the material was very important for my understanding. The daily accountability via a community board was actually quite powerful and a sense of community I think many are missing these days.
I most certainly have a better foundation in the science of meditation and what is does and can do for the brain, ones mindset and the power it has over ones mental and physical health.
I can't suggest the Mindfulness & Meditation course enough and it's for you whether you want to teach, understand it all better, be a better parent, or a better overall person.
