Life is Relentlessly Passing!

Challenge Yourself NOW and Transform Your Life.

We’re working on offering courses both online and in-person. They’ll for sure be live online.


Awaken the Wise You is a nine month journey comprised of five courses. Each course is six weeks with a 2-week break in between. Nine months of immersive experience designed to cultivate the wise in you so you can transform difficulties and blocks into personal accountability and happiness. Empowering a life of wisdom, purpose, intention, and connection. Though each class may be taken individually, they are designed to cover necessary aspects as described to strengthen the qualities of self-love, peacefulness, skillfulness in navigating difficult situations, and experiencing the benefits of sublime emotions. The content is based on a comprehensive transdisciplinary approach (science, universal spirituality, psychology, and inner-wisdom) to healing, personal development, transformation, and living a conscious and fulfilling life.

Five Carefully Selected Courses:

From our comprehensive catalog of courses, we’ve selected five of the best to begin your journey. Along with tools and practices, these courses integrate natural, rational, emotional, psychological, and spiritual life lessons to awaken and train the wise that already exists within you. Even the child who is destined to be the Dalai Lama has to go under a lifetime of training to establish consciousness, wisdom, and compassion.

Let These Courses Awaken the Wise You!

For many years, I have attended numerous of Manijeh's classes, retreats, and meditation sittings. These have been the catalysts and ongoing support for a continuing practice of mindful awareness, meditation, compassion, and loving-kindness. Manijeh's depth of knowledge and wisdom have guided me in my journey of personal growth. Her offerings are an investment in self-care and self-love while promoting a peaceful global community.

We begin the Awaken the Wise You journey with this holistic course filled with caring lessons and practices for nurturing your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. We strengthen your heart of self-compassion, cultivate wise actions, and explore alternative methods to offer you a diverse toolkit for self-care and healing. Online Live & Recorded

MLO 103: From Self-Love Deficit to Self-Worth and Fulfilment

Six-Thurs, May 16 to June 20th; 6:30 to 8:30 PM, PDT

Reports show only 13% of women say they practice self-love regularly, compared to 5% of men. 1 in 3 people globally struggle with self-acceptance and self-value. This translates into a harsh emotional life of ups and downs creating relationship issues and painful experiences full of drama, running around to please others so that some day they could love you as much.

Have you reached that moment, where your life makes less and less sense? You want to be authentic, put yourself first, not the narcissists in your life, and it's not easy. If you'd like to stop pretending that everything is fine, and the hope that you'll finally get that love you deserve, well, you're not alone. Loving oneself is a skill many people miss learning.

In this course, we go deeper, look at the spectrum of self-love deficit disorder to narcissism-both of which are deeply piercing. You'll learn practices to help develop authentic self-love, while cultivating the wise you. This course will strengthen an autonomous sense of happiness within. Online Live & Recorded.


MLO 104: Cultivating Emotional Wisdom For A Strong Immune System

Six-Thurs; July 11 to August 15; 6:30 to 8:30 PM, PDT

Science shows emotional stress is a major cause of physical illnesses including cancer, autoimmune conditions, and chronic diseases. Our emotions are linked to our immune systems and can either empower or hinder it.

Learn which emotions protect and which disrupt your immune system and how to manage them.

Here, we discuss how emotions are mostly learned, expected of us, and even forced upon us. Unknowingly, we attach to these emotions and react, making our bodies ill and our hearts sick with unhappiness.

You will learn ways to cleanse emotions that are disruptive and healthier ways of experiencing as well as expressing. Online Live & Recorded.

Her Life Optimization Method and approach exceed the training and education we’ve received to become therapists. It incorporates more depth into treatment regardless of diagnosis. It helps achieve a healthy happy lifestyle rather than just coping strategies/tools
