She helps them embody their truest purpose while rising beyond ego-centric paradigms.

Ishita’s work is the joyful expression of her deepest realizations and an invitation into your own.

She has coached leaders from Google, Harvard, MIT, Silicon Valley startups and multinationals. Clients come to her to grow and heal through their deepest challenges while held in their perfect wholeness. They include seekers and scientists, therapists and creatives, CEOs and incarcerated youth. She points every one of them back to their center.

Drawing on a unique ability to attune to her clients’ nervous systems, Ishita guides confusion into clarity and felt-sense safety. Her incisive approach is grounded in spacious loving connection.

Born in the foothills of the Indian Himalayas, now living in North Carolina with her American husband, Ishita draws on the confluence of cultures, paradigms and dimensions- marrying western intellect and eastern spirituality through the wisdom of the human heart and body.

Outside of leading people in Open Meditation, her own way of embodied self-inquiry, she draws on the world’s great wisdom and healing traditions to help clients return to their natural states of vibrant, expansive wholeness.

Between 1-2% of Come to Center’s yearly profits support humanitarian efforts including Free the Slaves– dedicated to freeing the world’s 27 million captives out of bonded slavery, and directly to homeless and forgotten people in the places she calls home.
