Therapist, Mentor and Meditation Teacher


Aruna's Vision

To create conscious expansion in the world so we live in bliss and harmony.

What do you do?

I deeply care and am dedicated to helping individuals and organizations build awareness, dissolve stress and become more happy and productive. My eclectic methods are all scientifically researched and studied. I offer unique solutions, teach people tools to self-manage their emotions and provide expert guidance. I also enjoy producing mindfulness and meditation videos. 

What's your background?

I studied Psychotherapy and Hypnosis at Master's level in England. I'm also certified as a teacher in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) developed at Oxford University. My earlier background was in the film industry, where an understanding of psychology helped me achieve critical acclaim as a lead actress in India and Europe. A Google Zeitgeist, I became the most 'Googled' name in India in 2010.

Half Indian, Half English I'm happy to have experienced the best of both worlds. A descendant of Sage Mandavya my heritage is Brahmin (an ancient lineage of gurus who pass down knowledge, rituals and meditation).

Where do you see clients?

Private sessions are held in my offices in Venice Beach andd La Crescenta, Los Angeles. International clients often chose to see me virtually. Every week I guide group meditations for members of LA meditation studios. I also work at rehabs, Prominence and Malibu Hills, helping people recover from drug addiction.

What happens in sessions with you?

Individual sessions are unique and enjoyable. We will pause and navigate your inner world peacefully. After listening to you I will tailor sessions to suit your specific needs. After sessions you will be energized, confident, happier and more able to make intuitive decisions. If you're looking for an open-minded, compassionate and creative therapist, we could be a good fit.

What are your passions?

I love my daily practice of Transcendental Meditation (TM), reading ancient texts, Ayurveda, dancing, Burning Man festival and spending time in nature.
