I Empower People to Live Joyful and Meaningful Lives

My purpose in life is to catalyze aliveness – in individuals, groups, and organizations. In this website, you will find access to my online programs, live talks, and webinars, as well as other products through which I create a bridge between the Academic World and the Common Man —translating scientific research into practical tools that people can apply in their personal and professional lives. My approach is interdisciplinary, drawing on psychology, organizational behaviour, yoga, and philosophy. I have condensed over 20 years of my own intense study, research, exploration, experimentation, and client experience to bring to you pragmatic and proven ways to transform your life.

I can help you feel better. How do I know this? Well to be honest I have always known this intuitively but I had not acknowledged it explicitly (even to myself), until very recently. A long time ago, in my early twenties I had fantasized about opening a shop on the street with a title “Happiness Turn”. My idea was that people could walk in and I would have conversations with them in a way that when they walked out they would feel happier about themselves and their lives than when they walked in. I never opened this shop – instead I went on to study psychology, to do a PhD in organizational behavior, do research on workplace happiness, design a doctoral level course on positive psychology, run 10 years of an executive program titled ‘Leading with Joy’, and offer an online course on edX on ‘Work, Happiness and Meaning’. I did all of this but I did not open that shop titled ‘Happiness Turn’. Read more….

TED Talks

Among my clients


“What do I mention about Ramya. In those 3 days, not only me but the other 29 associates who joined me had learnings to take away. Not only what was taught in class but from Ramya’s own journey so far. No, she does not believe in monologue and slides. She makes you retrospect and think, learn from the past and execute in the present. And do not be surprised if a few exercises stir emotions because she energizes you to self-discover and reaffirm your purpose of life.” Read more…

I approached Dr Ramya because I had heard a lot about her coaching & I was looking to build my leadership brand & also improve my personal effectiveness. The coaching & tools shared by Ramya are immensely helping me in these two areas. Another area where there has been considerable improvement is in overcoming my fears and building my mental agility. I truly enjoyed Ramya’s approach -she is the best & I am glad that I took the decision to get coached by her.Read more…
