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 mediation to anyone.


Her guidance has elevated my meditation practice and has me dropping in deeper, tuning into my body and it’s capabilities like never before. I have genuinely leveled up and I only have Rajni and this program to thank.

Engagement Specialist

Going through Rajni's Holistic Mindset and Meditation Training Program has been extremely powerful. It has taken my meditation practice to the next level while learning so much about the science and research behind it all which is extremely fascinating.


The impact it has had thus far on myself, relationships, and general well being have been monumental. Rajni and the guest speakers brought in during the course have provided incredible insight and valuable information to level up and live an aware, awake, and meaningful life."

Why did we create this program?

We believe the watering down of mindfulness and meditation serves no one, nor this world.

We know that combining authenticity and vulnerability with rich history, & practical, profound modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, powerful meditation techniques, science, emotional intelligence practices, to fundamentally change the baseline of your thoughts, emotions and behaviors...is the name of the game.  


The objective is To Live An Aware and Awake Life.

By integrating data and understanding of your physiology, brain and psychology, you'll connect with your curiosity and feel the mental, emotional and physical impact of meditation and mindfulness. 


Reducing toxic stress, applying thought management skills, learning breathing techniques and nervous system 'regulation' will deepen your understanding of the brain's ability to rewire itself.


You'll evolve your beliefs and systems of thinking, for the ultimate purpose of living an aware and awake life.

was already grateful to Rajni for her meditation and guidance, and can't begin to express my gratitude for her coaching program, continuous support and non-judgement.   There is no cookie-cutter approach here, and as unique as Rajni's guidance, care, knowledge and experience are, no matter how many people she is helping, I feel she treats me as a unique individual. Whenever I have contact with her, my experience with Rajni leaves me feeling empowered, capable, encouraged and positive.
