The journey (through this course) has been a pleasant one as the information is there to revise in a simple and effective manner. If I was to measure my growth both professionally and personally during the last 12 months it has been an uphill curve and I feel that my development will serve not only myself, my family and my friends but part of the community that surrounds me.
- Marla
The Meditation Teaching and Holistic Human Development course has changed my life forever. It is opening a door to an exciting world of knowledge in ways to balance the Mind, Body, Spirit, and Emotion. The course material and assignments are fun and easy to learn. The support, feedback and encouragement from my teacher are unmeasurable. I am truly grateful for this course. Thank you.

About the Head Teacher & Owner

Hi, I'm Sharla Goodwin

I’ve always been interested in health and wanted to help people with their own health so I started my professional career as a registered dietitian. I realized that nutrition was an interest of mine but it wasn’t my passion. 

I wanted to go deeper. I wanted to help people to really connect with themselves, know themselves and live authentically to be truly healthy, happy, and fulfilled. It wasn’t long into my career as a dietitian before I started encouraging my clients to practice meditation to help them with their health goals. 

A few years later I became a meditation teacher and life coach using meditation and mindfulness to help my clients in all sorts of ways. Meditation and being fully connected with ourselves is the answer to fulfillment, happiness and freedom.

Now I get to teach and mentor people like you who want to have a bigger and better impact on the world.

Welcome to my school!
