Mira

Mira’s journey has been profoundly impacted by meditation.  After struggling for many years with physical and emotional health problems, she started taking Naturality courses. Naturality teachings have helped her to re-build her broken self-image and self-esteem from the inside out. She felt a sense of freedom from past traumas and her understanding of her natural self deepened. In 2008 she became a certified Naturality meditation teacher and to this day she has been teaching meditation with Jivasu and other teachers in Hamilton and Toronto.

Born in Tehran, Iran in 1972 to deaf and mute parents, Mira mastered sign language and developed an intuitive grasp of the human mind in order to understand and help her parents. She was a gifted student throughout her primary and secondary education. After graduating from high school Mira immigrated to Canada and completed a Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Education. She started working as a high school science teacher in 2000 and still teaches today.

Her spiritual journey began when the war between Iran and Iraq destroyed her home town. War and destruction left deep fear and anxiety in her. These problems were deepened by the strict rules of religion that led to guilt. But these strict traditions also provoked many questions about God and authentic spirituality. From a very young age, Mira was fascinated with Rumi’s poems, a sufi (lover of divine) who lived 700 years ago. Rumi’s philosophy resonated with her and left a deep love for wisdom in her heart.

Immigrating to Canada was not easy. She struggled with a new culture and language which led to depression. She felt rootless which created a deep crisis in her life and affected her health as well as the relationships. She soon reached a crossroads where she was forced to make a decision whether to be drowned by her sufferings or to swim to another shore where a freedom from fear and suffering was possible. It was during this time that she met Jivasu and began exploring the teachings of Naturality. These teachings and meditations provided her with the most authentic path towards living a meaningful life. Living according to her nature has led her to the path of awareness and has moved her towards a more natural self. She has now become less bound by fear and sorrow and enjoys a sense of well-being and peace.
