Inspired Vedic Name: Umavati
Welcome to BuddhaInspired – a community dedicated to purposeful living and inspiring infinite possibilities. Just as I have found barriers within myself and am learning to release these walls of protection (because they keep loved ones out too), I share my experiences so you may find useful tools to guide you on your journey.
The tools of meditation, mindfulness, sound healing, forgiveness and gratitude are just a few skill sets that will allow you to expand your perception to discover all the hidden talents, beauty and strength and confidence that already lies within you, just like the Golden Buddha.
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” – Rumi
I’m a Southern California native who loves the sun, beach and laid-back west coast vibe. After a 20+ year career in the corporate world, I felt a calling to experience something new. It started as a little idea – a seed – and there finally came a time when I realized all the stories and excuses and fears were no big deal.
Once that moment came, a phenomenal, unexpected journey blossomed as I learn to trust more and embrace the unknown. After being a work scholar at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, I traveled to India for a month and have immersed myself in Peru with native plant-based medicines. My desire to make meditation even more approachable launched me into the sound healing space, which provides profound relaxation and re-calibration. It’s like a re-boot for the body!
In 2013, I received my Primordial Sound mantra as part of the Chopra Seduction of Spirit event and first met internationally renowned, Vedic Master davidji. In 2015, I completed the Masters of Wisdom Meditation Teacher Training course under his guidance and mentorship. With a degree in Cognitive Science from UC Berkeley, it is no surprise that I am fascinated with the concepts of philosophy of the mind, neural networks and the Fibonacci sequence, to name a few.
Still curious to know more? Feel free to ask! I’d love your feedback on what topics excite you and what else you’d like to know.
