Learn How to Decode & Re-Code Faulty Mental Programs & Provide Transformative Therapy & Coaching.

7 Wednesdays, January 11 to Feb 22

10-11 AM, Pacific Time – Live on Zoom

Hi, I’m Dr. Manijeh Motaghy,

So happy you are here. I’d like to tell you a bit about myself and the course.

I’m a learner by nature, a training designer by profession, and have developed a strong mind and heart. I have had a fair share of challenges and suffering in life such as divorce and the loss of my child. I got my Doctorate in Organizational Psychology in 2008 and since then I have expanded my understanding of the human mind and behavior extensively.

Throughout my own journey of healing and optimization and training thousands of students and clients, I’ve realized how prevalent it is to feel disconnected, confused, stuck in sorrow and shame, in the victim loop, and biased thinking. Deep diving, I found some key understandings that most people miss in life, causing a cascade of traumas, pain, and a bond with suffering.

Able to achieve these key understandings and resolve the associated pitfalls for myself and most of my clients, I set out to provide mental health and other coaching/training professionals these key understandings along with step-by-step strategies and solutions that can help unbind humanity from suffering.

This workshop introduces my Life Optimization Method, LOM. A method for self-healing and optimization and powering up a transformative practice. LOM is a timely methodology that also enables people to live in ways that heal the planet and change its gloomy trajectory into a flourishing state. An approach that helps you and your clients not just manage, but thrive in life.

My Journey To Live an Optimized Life.

Dr. Manijeh Motaghy

My family and I immigrated to the United States when I was fifteen. I found it difficult to cope with new cultural values, systems, and language. I had lost a lot leaving the environment I grew up in. A shy and quiet teenager with sadness that was with me all the time, and no one noticed. My parents were busy coping and even needed my help. 

Frustrated with challenges, they fought a lot and within the first year in a foreign land, my twin sisters were born. Now I got even less attention.

I had to sort through a lot of confusion in my mind, find out what I wanted to do, and my own way to college. In the first year of college, my friend’s uncle asked what I wanted to do. ‘To become a therapist,’ I said. Why? he asked, ‘Because I want to help my friends and family.’

He laughed hard and walked away. Not knowing why he laughed left me feeling ashamed. Thinking, I shouldn’t have shared if my family could use therapy, I dropped that idea and looked at fashion design, as I was good at art.

Still confused, I meandered in college from topic to topic and finally finished fashion design at a reputable school. But it felt too shallow, too much work to make the outside look good, while people including myself were aching inside.  

Life took me on a ride. To get out of the home chaos, I married a man who showed me attention and love. Nothing had changed, the same emotionally reactive and dramatic life.  To save myself from worry and anxiety, I focused on fixing others, their faults, their wrong behaviors, and their consequences. Like a full-time firefighter, I burned out.

Eventually, I hit bottom and realized my happiness wasn’t going to come by blaming others and fixing their issues. With raising two teenage boys, managing businesses and social life, education and personal reform was really tough.

Regardless, I continued schooling, going to Codependent Anonymous meetings, and ended up divorcing after 23 years, in the middle of graduate school.

The one light at the end of this tunnel was the vision that one day I’d stand on that stage and receive my Doctorate Degree. The day I would become free of pain and suffering. So, I thought!

In 2007, I met Daniel, who was a Buddhist and a meditation teacher. I became deeply interested in the Buddha’s teachings and Mindfulness for there was logic, compassion, and non-judgment in those teachings. I read Buddhist books I couldn’t understand, went to retreats when I couldn’t sit still for a minute, and gradually learned to understand my thoughts, feelings, choices, and the impact of my choices. I learned how to refine my intention and course correct my actions to live a happier life.

I encountered loads of faulty notions about myself, my needs and desires, my relationship with everyone, everything, and life. I was determined to develop more ease and peace in my life.

One day, my partner couldn’t make it to teach his class so he put me on the spot at the last minute to fill in for him and teach meditation and Mindfulness. He insisted that I could handle it. Afterward, three ladies asked where else I taught so they could attend my classes. I wasn’t dubbed a teacher, so I refused. But they insisted and one of them wrote a check right there and then and hired me for private lessons.

Out of nowhere, I’d been given the responsibility to pass on my understanding of Mindfulness and meditation. That responsibility catapulted me into another level of learning and developing myself. 

Mindfulness and intentional living, learning, and teaching became my life. I felt empowered to live, breathe, and dream of solutions to human suffering.

My dedication to learning and growth surpassed any other priority and resulted in great benefits for myself and everyone around me. I’ve become highly self-aware, kind and non-judgmental, patient and understanding, skilled in communication, focused, and purpose-driven. All of this yielded the development of a superpower to understand life’s hidden truths and the ability to articulate them effectively.

It became my rescue through the tsunamis of grief after the death of my beautiful son. A new level of self-compassion, which deeply enriched my teachings and transformational effects.

Manijeh, I just want to let you know what an inspiration you are to me to stay on this path. Your ability to find joy and happiness in light of the passing of your son never ceases to amaze me. Thank you.

In 2020, I began to pull together over a hundred thousand words I had written into a book to tell of my own transformation and the strategies I’ve taught others. In this synthesizing process, I realized that it took me much more than Mindfulness or any single approach to achieving happiness, effectiveness, and optimization.

Even the entire Buddha’s teachings which are extensively detailed and a great foundation for my sustainable happiness hadn’t been my solo source. Just learning how emotions are made was a substantial help in becoming emotionally sober. Decoding Self-Love Deficit Disorder in myself was another incredible journey. I had drawn from neurology, quantum physics and artificial intelligence, and many other sciences. More importantly, spending quiet time in dozens of 10-day silent retreats and regular visits to monasteries around the world guided my process to skillfully decode faulty notions and re-coding my mind with a proper understanding of how life works.

Creating a template that includes the utmost compassion and kindness for myself and others. One that reliably and consistently produces high-quality happiness, meaning, and success.

Studying Life Optimization with Manijeh has improved my life in many ways. I’ve become a better leader and manager by integrating qualities of empathy, loving kindness, self-compassion, and equanimity into the workplace. My insomnia, stress, anxieties, and self-doubts have greatly diminished. I feel far more patient, aware and comfortable with myself.

More About The Optimization Method

In my 15-year teaching career, out of thousands of students, after learning all that I taught them through the UCLA MAPS courses, two cohorts continued to gain an even deeper understanding of life for a consecutive seven years. Yearly program topics included Awakening to A Magnificent Self Through Mindfulness, One Year to Live, the Four Noble Truths, Karma and Not-Self, Knowing Reality for Happiness, Cultivating the Authentic Self, and this year From Dharm to Life Intelligence. While I have grown tremendously through designing and teaching these and countless other courses, my students have expressed feeling inspired and invigorated by my genuine personal process and growth. How I’ve gone through unthinkable grief and suffering, grown, and gained clarity, equanimity, and understanding of life.

I think, they also love my adventurous search to find diverse high-quality learning material. 🙂

I am forever in debt to Manijeh. Her teachings have empowered me to push the boundaries of my comfort zone. My life has been immensely enriched. The practice of cultivating wisdom and wholesome qualities has brought me peace and happiness. Manijeh’s wide range of topics have increased my awareness and love for all living beings and our environment.

Randy Shultz, Entrepreneur

Every year, I’d go on retreats, get guidance from my teachers, and design a yearlong program suitable for my students’ development and optimization. To continue reducing suffering and increasing fulfillment in life, I expanded my areas of knowledge in other corners of life. Discussing Artificial Intelligence and Climate Change with experts brought Mindfulness to a broader perspective and the necessity to extend conscious awareness of non-harming to all beings, in practical ways.

Taking an inventory of the training materials I’ve designed and taught for the book my strategies became synthesized into two comprehensive models. 

A grand model of Life Intelligence in three dimensions, 3DLQ, and a Five-Stage training model to achieve Life Intelligence.

The collection of these two models is the Life Optimization Method. The brilliance of LOM is that it can be utilized for personal development as well as to train others in any human development context, including in business, government, and academic settings. LOM is adaptable to any generation, gender, or cultural background, which I look forward to sharing with you in this workshop.


Understanding my mental patterns and expectations, has expanded my horizon, from hopelessness to hopefulness. Watching the real me emerge, I am encouraged to expand out of my comfort zone, blossoming into living life fully.

Bonnie Janofsky, Composer

I understand the human soul and psyche in a deeper way. People come with so many experiences and stories. I help them sort out their expectations vs. reality. With these classes I have become a better therapist.

Must Act Now.

With planetary instability and concerns about the future of humanity, we can no longer think of stress reduction and healing trauma for the benefit of the individual. We need training that helps prevent trauma and or ready people for trauma. A comprehensive approach to helping you and your clients understand how the environment is an integral part of our happiness and to develop deeper relationships with the earth, systems that govern life, and what it means to be part of the human species.

There is war, protests, discrimination, and so many other issues that arise from human ignorance due to a lack of proper training. The future generations face problems they did not create. They need us to become much more intelligent in life and pass that intelligence on.
