About MyJiva

What is "Jiva?" Jiva in Sanskrit means the Immortal Essence or soul of a living organism.

The intent of MyJiva is to help you reconnect with your true essence and live your life from a level of spirit rather than from form.  One of the best ways to do so is through the practice of meditation.  Meditation helps us go beyond the roles we play, the labels we've given ourselves and the stories we've identified with.  Meditation takes us into the silence within--into a field of pure love, compassion, peace, joy and infinite potential.  This is your Jiva.

MyJiva offers resources to help you find your way, including articles, videos, guided meditations and meditation classes and retreats.
