Hi, I’m Dr. Manijeh Motaghy,

Welcome to Power Up Your Practice With LIFE Optimization Methodology. 

Let me tell you a bit about myself and the course.

Through a journey of personal healing and optimization and teaching/training thousands of students and clients, I’ve seen how prevalent it is to feel disconnected, confused, stuck in sorrow and shame, in the victim loop, and in anxious biased thinking. In the face of political, social, and climate issues, many suffer for lacking an internal locus of control. This unfortunately includes mental health providers as well.

Over 24 years of deep diving to gain an utmost sense of happiness and mental well-being, key reasons why we can’t have a lasting fulfilling life. These are key understandings that most people miss in life, or get wrong. I believe that by offering education and training in these key components, we can prevent the cascade of traumas and bondage with suffering and develop people to live fulfilling lives. 

To enhance your approach and outcome with your clients.

This course introduces my LIFE Optimization Methodology/Training, LOM with step-by-step strategies and solutions to help you and your clients regain an internal locus of control and see how we could make our actions count.

This method is for personal optimization and powering up a transformative therapy and coaching practice. An approach that helps you and your clients not just cope, but thrive in life.

With planetary instability and concerns about the future of humanity, we can no longer think of stress reduction and healing trauma for the benefit of the individual. We need training that helps prevent trauma and or ready people for trauma. A comprehensive approach to helping you and your clients understand how the environment is an integral part of our happiness and to develop deeper relationships with the earth, systems that govern life, and what it means to be part of the human species.

There is war, protests, discrimination, and so many other issues that arise from human ignorance due to a lack of proper training. The future generations face problems they did not create. They need us to become much more intelligent in life and pass that intelligence on.

The one light at the end of this tunnel was the vision that one day I’d stand on that stage and receive my Doctorate Degree. The day I would become free of pain and suffering. So, I thought!

In 2007, I met Daniel, who was a Buddhist and a meditation teacher. I became deeply interested in the Buddha’s teachings and Mindfulness for there was logic, compassion, and non-judgment in those teachings. I read Buddhist books I couldn’t understand, went to retreats when I couldn’t sit still for a minute, and gradually learned to understand my thoughts, feelings, choices, and the impact of my choices. I learned how to refine my intention and course correct my actions to live a happier life.

I encountered loads of faulty notions about myself, my needs and desires, my relationship with everyone, everything, and life. I was determined to develop more ease and peace in my life.

One day, my partner couldn’t make it to teach his class so he put me on the spot at the last minute to fill in for him and teach meditation and Mindfulness. He insisted that I could handle it. Afterward, three ladies asked where else I taught so they could attend my classes. I wasn’t dubbed a teacher, so I refused. But they insisted and one of them wrote a check right there and then and hired me for private lessons.

Out of nowhere, I’d been given the responsibility to pass on my understanding of Mindfulness and meditation. That responsibility catapulted me into another level of learning and developing myself. 

Mindfulness and intentional living, learning, and teaching became my life. I felt empowered to live, breathe, and dream of solutions to human suffering.

My dedication to learning and growth surpassed any other priority and resulted in great benefits for myself and everyone around me. I’ve become highly self-aware, kind and non-judgmental, patient and understanding, skilled in communication, focused, and purpose-driven. All of this yielded the development of a superpower to understand life’s hidden truths and the ability to articulate them effectively.

It became my rescue through the tsunamis of grief after the death of my beautiful son. A new level of self-compassion, which deeply enriched my teachings and transformational effects.

Manijeh, I just want to let you know what an inspiration you are to me to stay on this path. Your ability to find joy and happiness in light of the passing of your son never ceases to amaze me. Thank you.

In 2020, I began to pull together over a hundred thousand words I had written into a book to tell of my own transformation and the strategies I’ve taught others. In this synthesizing process, I realized that it took me much more than Mindfulness or any single approach to achieving happiness, effectiveness, and optimization.

Even the entire Buddha’s teachings which are extensively detailed and a great foundation for my sustainable happiness hadn’t been my solo source. Just learning how emotions are made was a substantial help in becoming emotionally sober. Decoding Self-Love Deficit Disorder in myself was another incredible journey. I had drawn from neurology, quantum physics and artificial intelligence, and many other sciences. More importantly, spending quiet time in dozens of 10-day silent retreats and regular visits to monasteries around the world guided my process to skillfully decode faulty notions and re-coding my mind with a proper understanding of how life works.

Creating a template that includes the utmost compassion and kindness for myself and others. One that reliably and consistently produces high-quality happiness, meaning, and success.

Studying Life Optimization with Manijeh has improved my life in many ways. I’ve become a better leader and manager by integrating qualities of empathy, loving kindness, self-compassion, and equanimity into the workplace. My insomnia, stress, anxieties, and self-doubts have greatly diminished. I feel far more patient, aware and comfortable with myself.

In my 15-year teaching career, out of thousands of students, after learning all that I taught them through the UCLA MAPS courses, two cohorts continued to gain an even deeper understanding of life for a consecutive seven years. Yearly program topics included Awakening to A Magnificent Self Through Mindfulness, One Year to Live, the Four Noble Truths, Karma and Not-Self, Knowing Reality for Happiness, Cultivating the Authentic Self, and this year From Dharm to Life Intelligence. While I have grown tremendously through designing and teaching these and countless other courses, my students have expressed feeling inspired and invigorated by my genuine personal process and growth. How I’ve gone through unthinkable grief and suffering, grown, and gained clarity, equanimity, and understanding of life.

I think, they also love my adventurous search to find diverse high-quality learning material. 🙂

I am forever in debt to Manijeh. Her teachings have empowered me to push the boundaries of my comfort zone. My life has been immensely enriched. The practice of cultivating wisdom and wholesome qualities has brought me peace and happiness. Manijeh’s wide range of topics have increased my awareness and love for all living beings and our environment.

Every year, I’d go on retreats, get guidance from my teachers, and design a yearlong program suitable for my students’ development and optimization. To continue reducing suffering and increasing fulfillment in life, I expanded my areas of knowledge in other corners of life. Discussing Artificial Intelligence and Climate Change with experts brought Mindfulness to a broader perspective and the necessity to extend conscious awareness of non-harming to all beings, in practical ways.

Taking an inventory of the training materials I’ve designed and taught for the book my strategies became synthesized into two comprehensive models. 

A grand model of Life Intelligence in three dimensions, 3DLQ, and a Five-Stage training model to achieve Life Intelligence.

The collection of these two models is the Life Optimization Method. The brilliance of LOM is that it can be utilized for personal development as well as to train others in any human development context, including in business, government, and academic settings. LOM is adaptable to any generation, gender, or cultural background, which I look forward to sharing with you in this workshop.

I understand the human soul and psyche in a deeper way. People come with so many experiences and stories. I help them sort out their expectations vs. reality. With these classes I have become a better therapist.
