About Our Founder

How did you come to be
involved in natural health
and holistic well-being?

How does that meditation awakening that you just described factor into your health challenges that you talk about in your book?

Aren’t you concerned that scientists and recognized holistic health practitioners in your field may consider you to be a quack, based on your inclusion of what you call The Spiritual Power?

Holistic Well-Being Visionary – Yoga Science and Meditation Master –
Health Freedom/Bodily Autonomy Advocate

Kedarji is a holistic well-being visionary, Yoga Science and Meditation Master, and an advocate for Health Freedom.

Kedarji has been interviewed on the Robert Scott Bell Show, the Pure Joy Planet Podcast, the Laura Theodore show on Unity Radio, the Nutrional Frontiers podcast, the Plant Trainers podcast, the Mosaic show and the What Really Matters podcast, among others.

Kedarji is both a spiritual leader, as well as, a holistic health and well-being practitioner and research scientist who has made the commitment to offer all the gifts and skills he has acquired that have changed his life and that of countless others, for the better.


He is a staunch advocate for health freedom and bodily autonomy. Collaborating with other regional organizations, he has introduced bills to the Ohio state legislature, including the Holistic Health Choice Act and the Covid-19 Alternative Therapies Act.

Studies In Preventive Medicine, Holistic Healing & Well-Being, Holistic Nutrition

He studied Oriental Medicine, Eastern Medicine and Iridology with Michio Kushi, his mentor and the founder of the Macrobiotic movement in America. This included completion of more than 1,500 hours of study in Holistic nutrition, based on nutrient-dense, real food. He completed his studies and training, graduating from The Kushi Institute in 1979.

He also studied with Aveline Kushi, Dr. Bernard Jensen and Wataru Ohashi of Ohashi Institute and Health.

Additional Holistic Well-Being Mentoring

Additional mentoring occurred under Michael Abehsera, Masaaki Yamaguchi, the founder of Souen health and Holistic, Vegan cooking with Anne Marie Colbin. Victor Kulvinskas was also a mentor in botanical medicine. Each of his mentors were original pioneers in these fields.

Education Development

Kedarji is the author and manager of the curriculum offering here that includes meditation and chanting methods for permanent spiritual transformation, holistic well-being coaching, plant-based nutrition coaching and holistic health and well-being practitioner training. Evidence-based research in holistic well-being alternatives is also offered. In this regard, most notably is Kedarji’s work in coaching people in the reversal and healing of diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome.

Leading With Love

Kedarji helps people embrace the Grace in life’s joys and challenges in a way that causes lasting happiness and peace. In a world seemingly mad with greed and corruption, Kedarji has a long track record of helping people affirm and expand the best parts of their lives.

He is a Sadhu, an ascetic, in the lineage of the great sage and saint, Bhagawan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri. He imparts the same instruction and leadership he was taught—the same methods used by a line of spiritually proven and powerful masters and holistic practitioners who have uplifted people’s lives for thousands of years.

A Sadhu is one who has made the commitment to live as an ascetic, renouncing the pursuit of worldly pleasures and fantasies to serve the greater good and to work to uplift humanity. This includes both spiritual uplift and care for the health and well-being of all. In this regard, Kedarji is also known as a true spiritual leader who leads with the principle of Equality Consciousness.

In His Company

Many of Kedarji’s students say that through his leadership, he has transformed their lives in profound ways not experienced in other modalities or approaches.

His students blossom and uncover hidden strengths through a well-integrated and time-tested approach. Through his leadership, it’s possible for anyone and everyone to experience life’s magic in a way that they come to know their true nature and attain a state of lasting well-being.

With his 4 Pillars of Joy In Daily Living as the foundation (the Spiritual Power, Improved Mental State, Emotional Resilience and Vibrant Health), he leads students in an exact Science for both wisdom and well-being that is imbued with Grace. This includes opening pathways to vibrant health.


Kedarji is the author of several books, including:

  • How To Live Strong & Be Happy. Learn The Daily Rituals of The Most Spiritually-Powerful, Happiest and Healthiest People On The Planet – available now in both paperback and as an eBook PDF download.
  • The Verses On Witness Consciousness. (meditation and contemplation methods for making the restless mind quiet in under 3 minutes)

  • For The Love of Greed (a work about greed and social responsibility).
  • How To Be Fearless, Happy and Resilient In The Age of Noise and Distractions (a video home-study course and weekend retreat).

He is also the co-producer and host of several online summits and retreats, including Effective Treatments for the Virus That Causes Covid-19 & Your Right to Choose, the Whole Life Transformation Summit, the Blessing of Grace Online Retreat, and the Conquer Your Fears Weekend Online Retreat, producing and presenting, in each, multiple guest speakers who are experts in these fields.

Spiritual Journey

Kedarji began his quest to understand and fully imbibe Yoga Science at an early age. Feeling incomplete, Kedarji began an intense spiritual journey that took him to India and Asia. Soon after, he experienced an initiation, an awakening into the power of true Meditation, Chanting and Contemplation that formed the foundation for putting all the pieces together.

Due to this event and ongoing application of the methods taught connected to it, Kedarji was able to fully apply the science behind well-being that is based on the Spiritual Power. He calls it the energy substratum of everything. His direct, unfolding experience of this power is the basis for the integration of his 4 Pillars of Joy In Daily Living embodied in his unique approach; An approach that combines Yoga Science and the science of a wholistic lifestyle for vibrant health and well-being.

“Several years ago, I found my life falling apart.

Depression, anxiety, worry, restlessness… all dissolved when I practiced what I was being taught. For the first time in my life, I was experiencing peace, content, and even bliss! These treasures are worth more than any material thing on earth! I volunteer my time out of gratitude and love for all that I have received, and so that others may also experience the joy, peace and bliss that is waiting for them, right now, in this moment, regardless of mundane circumstances or situations.”
