Shivali is also setting the stage to be one of the youngest female Indian Motivational Speakers. Shivali delivered the keynote speech in New York for International Women's Day Conference and was a guest speaker for Women of India: Leading in a Time of Crisis, for the Women Ambassadors Forum where she spoke about 'Finding the Goddess Within".
She was the only Hindu speaker invited to the Spiritual Directors Conference in St Louis where she led a workshop on the nature of Karma Yoga. Shivali recently presented ‘Learning from the Himalayan Masters’ to her class and professors at Harvard Business School. She is frequently invited by schools and universities on general topics.
She also led a talk on Mindfulness, Mantras and Meditation for the Alchemist Kitchen, New York and was a workshop leader for the Spiritual Directors Conference in St Louis.
Shivali has also spoken for the Rotary Club in India, the Brahma Kumaris, and the Inner Enlightenment Spiritist Society in NYC amongst others. She also is a contributor to BBC Radio programs.
"Everything from scintillating electronic to R&B, pop and lo-fi treatments are given to devotional songs and believe it or not, they certainly work and have gone a long way in building Shivali’s dedicated fan base." - Rolling Stones India
“If you put 100% in any action, for the sake of doing your best, you will find fulfillment faster and it will last longer.” This is one of many takeaways I’ve learned from my fellow PLDer, Shivali Bhammer who presented to Brunswick’s #team in IMEA on the ‘Philosophy of the Hindu Himalayan Masters’.
Shivali, who straddles two careers, one as a signed recording artist for Sony Music India with three released albums, and a career in Investment Banking explained to us the relationship between the body, mind & intellect. Did you know that we have almost 60,000 thoughts a day, with 80% of them negative? and 95% of those are repetitive thoughts?
She then explained principles of Karma and dharma, and how meditation and mindfulness can enable us to live like a monk whilst conquering the world. Here is a challenge: brush your teeth today without thinking of anything else but this action. If you manage it, then you have good control of your mind, if not, join the club!
Shivali’s session is part of our DEI focused Lunch & Learn series where guest speakers present on multiple topics that increase cultural understanding and awareness to improve #inclusion and create a more positive work environment. If you are interested in speaking to us, please contact me.
Finally, I want to thank Shivali for sharing her wisdom and time with us. You are an amazing woman and inspiration to many.
