"Life unexamined is life not worth living"
After having a career in Computer Information Systems, I went back to school to get my formal education in psychology and Mindfulness because I realised how we are prisoners of our own psychological conditioning. I felt I had to formally learn the skills to change it for myself and for others.
The following outlines my journey as a practitioner of psychology and Mindfulness, from 1997 to present.
I launched my Mindfulness app and website called "2meditate" in 2015 after two years of conceptualizing, designing, collecting the content from various meditation teachers, and developing it into a usable product on all platforms.
After a three year long successful run as a teaching tool until May 2018, 2meditate app and website are on a hiatus, waiting to resurrect in a new format. Meanwhile, the tutorials and meditations are available on my YouTube channel 2meditate.
The purpose of the 2meditate app is to create a community of global mindful meditators in which any two or more meditators can meditate together from many corners of the world by finding each other on the map and listening to the same guided meditation simultaneously. They can chat with each other after meditating together. The app contains a list of guided meditations in the voice of well-known mindfulness teachers for various purposes such as better sleep, anxiety reduction, living kindness compassion, self-compassion and so on. The meditators can choose any meditation to listen to, either as a group or solo. For new meditators, they can view my quick and easy tutorials on Mindfulness.
I have conducted workshops in many areas such as relationships, stress management, cross cultural parenting over many years since 1998.
Over the years, the main thrust of my teaching has become
Let me give some examples.
“Dr. Desai is a highly effective teacher of meditation practice. Over a 50-minute lunch presentation at a daylong conference, she led 200 student affairs and higher education professionals on techniques for being more mindful and self-compassionate. Feedback from conference attendees was extremely positive and well received.”
