As the practice of meditation began to profoundly transform her life, she decided to devote her time to leading groups and individuals in mindfulness practices. In 2014, Shirin received a Master Certification from Academy of Intuition Medicine, where she completed more than 1000 hours of meditation, and instruction in Energetic Healing techniques and Spiritual Consultation practices. Shirin holds a B.S. in Computer Information Systems from San Francisco State and a M.S. in Finance/Investments from Golden Gate University.
