I write books, channel podcasts, share ancient Ayurvedic wisdom and dance through this sacred journey called life.
I’m here to help you Discover Your Dharma™ (soul’s purpose) so you can share your gifts with the planet… And show you that your highest path of service is your highest form of joy.
I always knew I was born on this planet to help others. But I didn’t know how.
Coming from refugee and immigrant parents and a lineage of child marriage, female suppression and political imprisonment, I always felt it was my personal responsibility to save the world.
After spending most of my young adult life volunteering with NGOs, raising awareness for Human Rights campaigns as president of my local Amnesty International Chapter and studying International Development, I realized that the true way to change the world was to change the way people think.
Instead of telling people what to do, if we could only raise their consciousness, they would know exactly what decisions to make to create a more just, abundant and beautiful world for all.
this brought me
to my mission today to awaken others to the wisdom that lives within them.
I believe none of us are here by coincidence but the very fact that you are here is for you a reason.
You too are here to raise consciousness and have chosen to incarnate at this time of great transition to be part of the shift.
Your gifts, your strengths, your interests, are encoded within you for a reason.
The very reason you have them is that within them lies your dharma.
I always say:
Your dreams are dreaming you back.
What that means is you will never have an idea you don’t have the ability to bring to life. That idea chose you as its ideal messenger because you are the perfect person to bridge it to reality.
However, that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen instantly or easily. The obstacles you must overcome to bring that vision to reality are your soul’s unique curriculum to help you embody your dharma.
Discovering your dharma is the most important work we can do and why I’ve dedicated my life to it.
Ancient Ayurveda for the Modern World
My journey began with Ayurveda, the world’s oldest health system and the sister science of yoga based on the mind-body connection.
When I was 21-years-old, my body began shutting down and I experienced perimenopausal symptoms, was told I would never be able to have children from the doctors who prescribed me countless medications for everything from digestion to hormonal imbalances to insomnia.
I intuitively knew that I needed to reach the root cause of my imbalance and that’s what guided me to rediscover Ayurveda, the long-lost language of my ancestors and soul.
After healing my own body and mind with this ancient science, I felt a deep passion and responsibility to share it with the world. I’ve gone on to write two global best-selling Ayurveda books, Eat Feel Fresh: A Contemporary Plant-Based Ayurvedic Cookbook and Idiot’s Guide to Ayurveda, both with forewords by Deepak Chopra and creating my Modern Approach to Ayurveda Course with MindBodyGreen.
Through my years of research, writing, consulting and sharing Ayurveda with the world, I realized that Ayurveda is so much more than just for physical or mental healing, but as a pathway to understand the soul.
I see the world through the lens of the Doshas and view it as the key to understanding our purpose, our relationships, our business and essence. Being a global messenger for Ayurveda is part of my soul mission on this planet. I am eternally grateful for my predecessors and supporters, especially Deepak Chopra, for believing in me for sharing this knowledge with the world.
“Sahara is taking the torch of Ayurveda and burning it brightly.”

A Voice For The Sacred Feminine
I’m a voice for the divine feminine wisdom that is re-emerging at this time and believe spirituality is not about leaving your body, but rather about being so immersed in your body, you become one with it.
The path of the Goddess is not to detach yourself from the world enough that you can handle being in it. It’s about creating the world you desire to be part of. It is only from that place that we can truly connect with spirit, without bypassing the very realms we were born into.
This is why I founded Rose Gold Goddesses, the divine feminine mystery school, and am so passionate about leading from the heart, Earth and body.
You were born into a human body for a reason. This lifetime is about embodying out why.
Dharma, dance and drums
is my kinda medicine.
Dance has been my greatest tool toward dharma embodiment, and I believe soon it will be as popular as a healing modality as yoga. For thousands of years, we have been dancing, and only in recent times have we thought it’s limited to choreography. Dance is not about a performance—it’s an expression of your soul through the medium of your body.
We spend so much time in our minds trying to “figure” things out. Guess what? The mind will never figure it out. The nature of the mind is to loop around in circles. You must leave the mind, and enter the body, to come back home into your heart. We hold onto so much tension somatically in our Earth suits and dance helps us release the accumulated tension so we can come back into our true Goddess nature. As you let go of the body and mind, you enter the soul.
Come join me in my Healing + Embodiment Through Dance Online Course.
Highest Self Podcast
Grounded. Ancient. Sacred. Relatable. Real.
I created The Highest Self Podcast as the place I wanted to have conversations on all things spiritual, from past lives to rituals to sacred feminine wisdom to ancestral healing. I realized the purpose of health is not just so we can be healthy but so we can use them health to blossom into our highest selves. I wanted to dive deep, talk about the meaning of life, synchronicities, ancient wisdom and shakti embodiment.
And in the past three and a half years it has grown to become the #1 spirituality podcast on iTunes with over 25 million downloads!
It’s by far my favorite thing I do and there is nothing I love more than hopping on the mic when I’m getting a download and riffing live on air with you.
