Work With Zanthi
Zanthi teaches meditation to anyone with enough worthy enquiry to learn. She has found that Vedic meditation is particularly popular with entrepreneurs and business people as a way to relieve stress, enhance performance and creativity. Given her background as a business owner and former corporate executive herself; she is well-versed with the ongoing challenges busy professionals face on a daily basis. And once you learn Vedic meditation, you will start experiencing significant shifts. Because of this, she also provides business coaching and life mentoring services as additional structured forms of support in case you might need them.
For her personally, meditation became a vital recovery tool two-and-a-half years ago when she was struck down by a cerebrovascular accident and hospitalized. She subsequently made a four-month pilgrimage to the foothills of the Himalayas to become a certified Vedic meditation teacher in order to learn how to teach the technique that saved her post-stroke. Now she’s back in the Western world to teach meditation the same way it was taught to her in the hope of helping others who may be grappling with anxiety, overwhelm, and other stress-related issues that could be adversely impacting health, relationships, professional productivity, and self-esteem.

Frequently Asked Questions
It’s easy to be skeptical and to label meditation as “woo-woo.” Most people associate meditation with monks chanting or hippies sitting around doing nothing. There’s also the misconception that you somehow have to be a particular type of person to be into meditation — generally, someone with no real world responsibilities who has the time to close their eyes and sit super still for hours on end everyday. Meditation is definitely not a religion nor is it chanting, crystal healing, a New Age fad, veganism/vegetarianism, a huge time commitment, or simply an offshoot of yoga.
Nowadays, meditation in Western society is a practical life strategy employed by many people who lead incredibly busy lives — among them CEOs, entrepreneurs, creatives, working moms, shift workers, students, lawyers, athletes, primary care physicians, and other busy professionals.
Congratulations on feeling balanced and for managing your stress levels well. Meditation can only augment the positive effects you already feel and act as an insurance policy for when you may be faced with a major life change or sudden crisis. Chronic stress involves ongoing exposure to stressors that have negative effects on the mind and body. It may include physical symptoms such as headaches, chest pains, tummy aches; which if left unchecked eventually turn into high blood pressure, ulcers, cardiovascular issues, inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and skin conditions such as psoriasis. Regular twice daily Vedic meditation practice, in particular, not only helps with daily stress management but also allows the body to progressively drop into a space of healing where it is freed up to release old stores of stress along with years of maladaptive habits that would otherwise lead to disease if left languishing in the physiology.
The simplest answer to this question is no. If you think your mind is always going at a million miles a minute or that your body is too restless to sit still, then you’re actually an ideal candidate for Vedic meditation. This is because it’s a technique where you don’t have to try to empty your mind or try to stop thinking or try to sit still at all. It’s an effortless practice that settles both mind and body in the simplest, most natural way.
There are quite a few types of meditation. If you find a particular one doesn’t work for you, then by all means try another technique. It’s not meant to be “one size fits all,” but it is better to use each technique you try enough times so you can really determine if it’s for you or not. Once you’ve found one that works for you, stick with it because you’ll grow more from the practice and start to really reap the benefits it will bring to your daily life. The technique I teach is called Vedic meditation. Vedic is from the Sanskrit word, Veda, meaning knowledge. The Vedas are a 5000-year-old body of wisdom from which yoga, meditation and Ayurveda all originate.
Vedic meditation is an effortless and natural mental technique designed for people who are actively engaged in daily life. People like you with work, family, relationship commitments who are constantly multi-tasking and often at the mercy of their hyperactive minds and busy schedules.
It’s very simple mind technology that can be practiced anywhere and does not require specific focus/concentration nor contemplation/visualization. When you do it for twenty minutes twice a day (once in the morning and once in the afternoon/evening), this effortless practice allows you to take the mind beyond thought to a restful yet fully alert state of consciousness. Regular practice brings with it many health benefits; including better sleep, more energy, less stress, reduced anxiety, mental clarity, emotional wellbeing, increased calmness, and deeper rest that is more regenerative for your body than a good night’s sleep.
Not at all. As a practical technique, meditation is a non-denominational practice and it does not discriminate. Regular practice will bring you many benefits regardless of whether or not you’re spiritual, religious, atheistic, agnostic, or secular.
You can find ways to learn meditation for free and there’s really nothing stopping you doing that. In some cases, it is taught by faith-based organizations who have financial backing to conduct community programs. In this case, I’m an independent teacher of meditation who is not affiliated with any organization, religious/not-for-profit or otherwise.
The teaching tradition I’m part of also extols a practice dating back thousands of years called Guru Dakshina, where something of great value is given in exchange for something of great(er) value. The emphasis is on both intention and commitment by an aspirant that is then backed by an equitable exchange. This sets up a mutually beneficial relationship between the teacher and the would-be meditator. My own journey from first learning and now teaching this body of knowledge certainly reflected this. Not only was there dedication and commitment on my part but also a considerable exchange of resources in the form of both time and money.
If you think you can’t afford to meditate, chances are, you can’t afford not to. You’ll feel happier, work smarter, be more creative, stress less, stop worrying so much, accomplish more in much less time, liberate yourself from addictions, make better decisions, foster better relationships, and be more at peace with your self.
These coaching sessions are for aspiring and existing entrepreneurs, from service providers to product creators and retailers and other small business CEOs. Through the practical application of this program, together we create success and help you thrive in your role not simply by talking about business challenges and growth opportunities, but by overcoming and pursuing them. As part of the process, there will be core questions pertaining to sales, marketing, operations, finance, leadership, management, and overall business strategy that we will need to address. Apart from the variations on these you’ve likely come up with yourself, we will also dig deeper and focus on ascertaining how the business you’re growing will ultimately make you a better person and how financial success means you become more poised to contribute to a better world.
First step is to book your free evaluation session, usually conducted in person or via Skype. This is a no obligation 45-minute meeting where you get to tell me all about where you’re at and where you’d like to be, to which I can offer up preliminary suggestions and insights. After the session, you’re better able to decide whether further coaching sessions are for you and we can then move forward from there.
As a mentor, my job is to inspire you to take action that is full of spirit, meaning, and purpose — even if you don’t feel quite ready. As my own experiences have shown me time and again, there is a vast difference in the quality of experience between leaping to take right action versus delaying or blocking yourself due to maladaptive habits and debilitating thought patterns. My belief is that there is an inherent flow to everything. But when you’re stressed and feeling constantly pressured to meet life’s many deadlines, you miss crucial cues and easily disconnect from this flow.
Please know that it’s not my role to make decisions for you, but through the mentoring process, you will be offered insights and perspective that may be tricky for those closest to you to give. You will also be provided a balance of practical tools, step-by-step guidance, and imaginative activities designed to stimulate intuition and facilitate flow. The outcomes include giving you a newfound confidence from a more grounded place where you feel empowered to move forward and make new life choices. Ready to begin? Let’s start you off with a complimentary 30-minute consultation, which we’ll use to make sure we’re a perfect fit before you commit.
