Niema: Author, Speaker and Meditation CoachSponsors
I am an author and meditation guide who was born in Philadelphia and educated at Azusa Pacific University in southern California. At the age of 32, a profound inner transformation leads me to meditation. Let’s just say it was love at first sight. Although I had experienced a high level of childhood trauma, I channeled my energy into sports and writing. I was a four-time National Champion on the collegiate level and decided to stop running track to pursue a career in education.
After college, I earned a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership. Fifteen years later, I have had the privilege of inspiring children and families with two self-published books, and have traveled speaking to thousands of teens about my personal story. At the age of 35, a profound inner transformation led me to guided meditation workshops for others who want to heal from their past to enjoy the reward for the present. My specialty is working with beginner meditators in mindfulness meditation, teaching the benefits and the vital importance of connecting with one’s self.
