Ramaa Krishnan has spent most of her adult life studying and developing techniques to calm the mind and train it to be a fit companion for the journey of the spirit. She moved to the United States in 1998 and soon began teaching others her unique practices, first from her home and then from her studio in Wilmette, Full Bloomed Lotus Center for Self-Awareness. She leads others in meditation, mindfulness, and book discussions. Over the years, Ramaa has helped build a community where people make deep connections and work towards living in alignment with their intentions and deeper self despite the challenges of the human condition. In 2018 Ramaa decided to expand her circle and created Grow Through Mindfulness, a not-for-profit whose mission is to “Change the world outside by changing the world within.” Working with various communities, now through her online offerings, she seeks to spread the teachings and bring about deep-seated transformation.
