Love. Human Dignity. Wellness Through 4 Pillars of Total Well-Being.

As founder and owner of Soma Essential Healing, Kedarji brings to our offering more than 30 years experience in whole life transformation, holistic wellness and total well-being, both as a holistic healing practitioner and researcher. A former actor, musician and performing arts producer, Kedarji is also a meditation master and spiritual leader (Sadguru) in a long lineage of spiritual adepts, with more than 20 years experience leading people in spiritual lifestyle and true meditation – offering people access to permanent spiritual transformation. He is known for practicing what he preaches and offering what he has become. He was also mentored in the field of lifestyle medicine and holistic health and healing by the early pioneers of this field (see below).

He studied oriental medicine, iridology, acupressure, acupuncture, shiatsu and deep tissue massage, holistic nutrition and energy healing with pioneers of the whole life movement such as Michio Kushi, Aveline Kushi, Dr. Bernard Jensen, Wataru Ohashi, Michael Abehsera, Masaaki Yamaguchi, William Dufty, Gloria Swanson, Anne Marie Colbin and Victor Kulvinskas. He completed his studies and training in Oriental Medicine, graduating from The Kushi Institute in 1979, having mentored directly under Michio Kushi. He was taught Meditation, Yoga Science and spiritual philosophy by recognized spiritual Masters after completing studies with renowned philosopher V. Saly. He was certified in the clinical application of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) by Anne Linden of the renowned New York City NLP Center. With this extensive background in Total Well-Being, Kedarji has integrated a formidable, Total Well-Being approach.

This sets him apart, in a unique way, to elucidate the true meaning of Yoga, in the context of the current advances in lifestyle medicine and wellness. For this reason, he has integrated his spiritual attainment, and the spiritual offering of many years that he has made through The Bhakta School of Transformation, to include meeting the growing public need for effective, alternative methods to vibrant health and healing. This integration is offered as Kedarji’s Ecology of Wellness and our 4 Pillars of Total Well-Being.

In addition, Kedarji has the distinction of having observed in himself and his clients and students, what happens when they have fully implemented the lifestyle medicine approach we now offer, and what happens when people stop that approach. This has given him valuable insight, in research studies now being developed, as a comparison to measure what works best in most cases.

He now manages the research, coaching and certification areas of Soma Essential Healing.
