Certified Meditation Coach, Author, Speaker
I am a certified meditation coach, author, and speaker who was born in Philadelphia and educated at Azusa Pacific University in southern california. At the age of 32 a profound inner transformation lead me to meditation. Let’s just say it was love at first sight. Although I had experienced a high level of childhood trauma, I channeled my energy into sports and writing. I was a four time National Champion on the collegiate level and decided to stop running track to pursue a career in education. After college I earned a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership. Fifteen years later, I have had the privilege of inspiring children and families with two self-published books, and have traveled speaking to thousands of teens about my personal story. At the age of 35, a profound inner transformation led me to guided meditation workshops for others who want to heal from their past to enjoy the reward for the present. My speciality is working with beginner meditators in mindfulness meditation, teaching the benefits and vital importance of connecting with one’s self.
Private Mindfulness sessions are a wonderful way to work through your needs, regardless of whether you are a beginner or want to deepen your practice. Your private session will be tailored to you and is completely confidential.
Niema is an energetic speaker, with an amazing story of triumph. She shares with mostly youth as her target audience how she has overcome a very traumatic childhood to becoming a 4x national champion, author and speaker.
Why do I teach meditation?
I want to introduce mindfulness meditation to urban communities who have experienced trauma.
As a black women I was never introduced to meditation as a reduction to stress. I didn’t even know anyone who did meditation. I found out about meditation through reading self help books. I want to introduce mindfulness meditation to urban communities who have experienced trauma. The inner city carries an array of stressors and I’ve found through my personal journey it has been a way for me to overcome not only my stressors but also a method of personal healing into my past traumas.
What clients say
Since I’ve been meditating, I feel free. I had so much anger built up from childhood and teenage years. At times I would find myself being so mean, because of all the hurt I had inside. I’m so fortunate that I was one of the souls you were able to touch.
I’ve been thinking about getting into meditation for a couple years, but nothing ever sticks or makes sense. Today, I feel like all of those questions and uncertainties were stripped away and your transparency made it so easy for me to connect with myself and the art of meditating
Thanks to Niema, this space has given me more than words can say the past two weeks. I am rebuilding who I am from the soul outward. Ya’ll need to join in!
