In-venturing, one day at a time. 


Hi, friends! I'm Mamata.


I am... a lot of things: current New Yorker, proud Hufflepuff, Captain America/Marvel super fan, country music lover, writer, blogger, traveller, fast talker, slow eater... You get the point. :) 


But above all, I'm a meditator. I've been practicing Heartfulness Meditation, a heart-based meditation, for nearly nine years, and I've been a meditation trainer for four years. Meditation has been the foundation of my life since conception; it's the tool that I use to stay grounded, centered, and interested in my own self-development.

Committing to a daily heart-based meditation practice has a myriad of benefits: stronger routines and time management, increased focus and diligence, better sleeping patterns, stronger communication skills and empathy, and a continuous state of inner peace. The stronger my commitment is to my daily meditation practice, the more I see myself permanently developing these positive habits. I am a better person because I meditate daily. 

So many people have told me that they are interested in meditation, but they don't know where to start. Through funny anecdotes, personal stories, a little bit of vulnerability, and a whole lot of love, my goal is to provide deeper insight into Heartfulness Meditation, its techniques, and what steps you can take to ease meditation into your daily routine. I hope you'll subscribe to my website and follow along! 

In the meantime, you can check out my TEDx Talk (which has been viewed over 2 million times!), my talk at the NGO Committee on the Status of Women/New York panel, and a bunch of blog posts that share a little bit more about me. You can also follow me on Twitter and Instagram. 

Thanks for following along, friends!

With Love.,

New Year Gratitudes

If you had talked to me a few months ago, I would have told you that 2018 was the worst year of my life, and that I couldn’t wait for it to be over. But as I spend the last day of the year reflecting on the last twelve months, I realize that the path that I’m on today is exactly where I want to be. I wouldn’t be here now without the growth that came from the challenges and learning lessons of this year. 2018 may have been a doozy, but everything happened the way it was supposed to, in the time that the universe intended. I am so blessed to have the support of incredible friends, family, and a beautiful meditation community; I'm grateful to live in the greatest city in the world. And I'm especially thankful for the ability to grow and evolve into the person I’ve always wanted to be.

Who would have thought I’d end up saying that 2018 has been the BEST year of my life? Certainly not me. I can’t wait to take on 2019, and give it my all.

Happy New Year, sweet friends! Thank you for ALL of your support over the last few weeks as I have launched my website and new content. I am especially appreciative to all of you. May your 2019 be filled with lots of joy, growth, love, and happiness!
