Angela helps with Ranjit’s non-profit program, Youth Meditation.

She is the owner of a prominent event design and production firm in Charlotte, NC, and has been studying with Ranjit since 2008. In what can be a high-stress and competitive industry,  she realized through meditation that she can be calm, focused, more creative and more productive no matter what else might be going on. The impact meditation has had on her work and family life brought her to want to share this practice with others, most specifically children. She is a mother of three young children who are her most enjoyable experiment with mindful meditation.

Angela has taught Laughter Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation in corporations, non-profits, universities, and schools.  Their belief in the need for a secular and universal presentation of mindful meditation prompted Angela and Ranjit to create Youth Meditation.
