Step 1

Click here to join a free Intro Talk.

Step 2

Attend the course (only 2 hours a day for 4 days). Have the most powerful daily meditation practice to take with you for life.

Step 3

Once you graduate from zivaLIVE, you’ll have lifetime access to group meditations, refresher courses, plus access to advanced trainings and retreats.

Can I do zivaONLINE on my own schedule or are there specific times?

Either is possible. If you join the interactive version (offered annually) then you’ll move through the course with a class of people together. In the custom version you can choose your start date. On either, you can go at your own pace, fit the videos into your schedule, and be assured you’ll have access to the videos for a full six months.

What’s the difference between the zivaONLINE interactive and custom versions?

The custom version is available all year and you can pick your start date. The Q&A calls with Emily are pre-recorded. The interactive version is offered annually. We have live Q&A calls and you move through the training on the same days as meditators around the world as a “class.” There is power in accountability and group learning.

What’s the difference between zivaONLINE and zivaLIVE?

The in-person course happens in NYC monthly and LA and other cities occasionally. This is the Tesla of meditation courses. It’s fast, powerful, and we think it makes you sexier ;-). Once you graduate from zivaLIVE, you’ll be an expert meditator with access to a lifetime of follow up, support, and weekly group meditations. In zivaLIVE you receive a personalized bija mantra and witness a ceremony. zivaONLINE makes the Ziva Technique accessible to people everywhere, even if they don’t have a teacher nearby. The meditation sessions are 15 min 2x a day instead of 20 and the mantras are gentler by design as we can’t be with you for face to face support through the physical and emotional detox that happens in zivaLIVE. Even though it’s gentler, people have reported life-changing results with zivaONLINE. Plus, half your zivaONLINE tuition can be put towards the zivaLIVE course if you decide to dive deeper with us in NYC or LA.

Will I have access to zivaONLINE after the 15 days?

When you register you’ll get 6 months of access. Repeat the course as many times as you wish during your access period. We encourage you to move through the training a few times as you’ll learn new things. After 6 months you’ll have the opportunity to register for continued access, with annual and monthly options available.

Do I need an accountability partner?

Many people do. There are the rare exceptions who feel completely self sufficient, but most of us get by with a little help from our friends and have more fun that way. The zivaONLINE community is a beautiful resource, and we have a lovely forum in a private zivaONLINE Facebook group.

What is Ziva meditation?

It’s a stress reduction technique practiced for twenty minutes, twice a day. It’s designed to bring bliss and uplevel your life. Learn more in our free meditation intro talk.

What if I can’t stop my mind from thinking?

That’s ok! No one can give their mind a command to stop thinking, instead we use a mantra to induce deep rest which is very healing for the body. It’s simple, you just need a bit of instruction.

Why Ziva meditation?

Originally created for people with busy minds and busy lives, this style of meditation easily integrates into daily life. Both effortless and enjoyable, it only takes a chair and twenty minutes to do less and accomplish more.

What if exercise is my meditation?

Exercise is a fantastic compliment to meditation, but it’s not the same thing as meditation. Meditation delivers deep rest to the mind and body, reducing stress from the nervous system.

What is a mantra?

In Sanskrit, “Man” means mind and “Tra,” means vehicle. A mantra literally translates to “mind vehicle,” helping to settle both mind and body to access that space in between thoughts.

Is this a religion?

No, Ziva Meditation is a stress reducing tool. We have zero interest in telling you how to live your life. We have a lot of interest in giving you the tools to help you act in accordance with what you already know to be true.

Do I have to attend the Intro Talk?

Attending the Intro Talk is the prerequisite for taking the course. We’ll cover where it comes from, why it is so powerful, and the different course and pricing options. If you are travelling from out of town or have a conflict you cannot move please email and request access to a video of the Intro talk.

How much is the zivaLIVE course?

There are many different course types and payment plans as we want to make the training availalbe to all who want to learn. Please RSVP to our free Intro Talk for a detailed explanation of all of the course and payment options. We also offer private and corporate courses.
