Your Teacher

“Learning Ziva Meditation is the single best thing I have gifted myself. It has been a complete game changer because it is very user-friendly, fool-proof, and extremely effective at dissolving stress. My energy levels were immediately elevated and I need much less sleep. My focus at work has become razor sharp, and I am able to make decisions quickly in a clear and confident manner. My tension headaches abated, and I feel more myself.”
Susan Chen – Managing Director, Macquarie Capital

  • How Meditation Can Help You

    • Depression/Anxiety

      45% of women in the US take anti-anxiety or anti-depressants. JAMA Internal Medicine found that meditation helps heal depression and anxiety about as effectively as antidepressants. It floods the brain with dopamine & serotonin.

    • Stress

      Harvard researchers estimate that 60-90% of doctor’s visits are caused by stress. Meditation is the single most powerful stress relieving tool available by natural means. Getting stressed is not bad for you, staying stressed is toxic.

    • Better Sex

      Because what woman has ever said, “I had the hottest sex last night with this guy who looked WAY older than his age, had a slamming pot belly and was totally distracted the whole time”? Less stress = Better Sex.

    • Productivity

      When the body is in “fight or flight” mode, mental capacity decreases. Meditation reduces stress and allows you to perform at the top of your game.

    • Migraines

      Meditation can help relieve the intensity, frequency and duration of migraines. Migraines tend to be 3 hrs shorter for meditators and happen 1.4 times less frequently.

    • ADD, ADHD

      In a recent study of meditation for people with ADHD, 78% of participants reported a reduction in total ADHD symptoms, with 30% reporting at least a 30% symptom reduction. For adults, significant reductions in depressive and anxiety symptoms were reported.

    • Insomnia

      50% of adults suffer from insomnia a few nights a week. Meditation gives you a custom designed time to get rid of stress in the body, so you can use your sleep as a time for sleep.

    • Fertility

      Meditation makes the body less acidic, which can increase your fertility. If you are not looking to get pregnant, then please take care. We are having zivaBABIES popping up all over the place.
