What Students and Clients Have Said

“Working with Shanti is one of the best things I’ve done in my life.”

“She is an inspiring teacher and a five-star university professor.”

 “I was immediately drawn to Shanti’s style of teaching and her passion for holistic and natural health. I have come to regard her as one of the most important mentors in my life.  She lives her truth; her authenticity is completely genuine.  She is always willing to share her wisdom and knowledge while remaining compassionate, supportive, honest, patient and ethical.”

“She is first rate. She spoke for three hours with virtually no pre-conclusion departures. With the exception of relevant quotations, she lectured entirely without notes demonstrating complete command of her subject. It is difficult to define or describe the quality of persons who can so hold an audience. I feel it is obvious she knows what she is talking about and that she is filled with enthusiasm for her subject and can transmit that enthusiasm to her listeners. She is clearly spoken and well organized and seems to have something very special. It is magnetic and raises her to a position of earned prominence even among professionals substantially older and well known.”
