Mindfulness and meditation are known to improve cognitive ability, process emotions clearly, and effectively deal with stress and anxiety. In modern times, practising these techniques can lead one to a greater level of self-awareness and fulfilment in life.

Dr. Monica is a certified meditation and mindfulness coach and also a parenting advisor who has touched the lives of more than 500 women and children and inspired them to lead a purposeful and happy life.

Her journey in this field began when she received a scholarship to pursue her doctorate in education. Following her marriage,she shifted to Hyderabad and started her research on primary education. Her love and adoration for children motivated her to start a primary school, and she gave birth to her son around the same time. By the time she completed her degree, she had given birth to a daughter, and then family responsibilities took a toll on her.

During these difficult times, the lack of emotional support led Dr. Monica to find her peace and quiet her mind by learning courses such as Reiki, Pranic Healing, Art of Living, Vasthu, and even astrology. Dr. Monica recalls and states this phase as the period of dormancy, the winter of her life, when the seed takes in all and waits for the right time to sprout and bloom. She states that practicing  Buddhist philosophy acted as the nurturer of her soul and transformed her from a complaining, dissatisfied individual to a vibrant person. Dr. Monica states that it took 25 long years of hibernation for her winter to turn into spring and still she could keep the spark alive and burning.

Following this, she geared up, upskilled herself, and became a mindfulness, happiness, parenting, meditation, NLP, and hypnotherapy coach.
