She is also a Tai Chi gold medalist, most recently medaled in gold at the 2014 and again at the 2016 International Chinese Martial Arts Championships. She guides a meditation experience called, "Unplug Soul" at Unplug Meditation in Los Angeles every Sunday.
She is passionate about guiding meditation aimed at enhancing one's experience of peace within. Her most profound influence is Eckhart Tolle, with whom she has traveled and worked extensively, although she has meditated with many teachers all over the world. Always curious about meditation in its many forms, she experienced being a yogic nun in Ahmedabad, India, where she was fortunate enough to teach young children English. They were an essential part of the inspiration for her 7 spiritually inspired children's books, available now on Amazon as well as children's bookstores and museums.
Olivia has also authored, Please Meditate: It's Good for You, an all embracing instructional guide through several beautiful forms of meditation, helping the reader to find their perfect practice. It is supported by her youtube channel, Please Meditate, which gives the reader extra support as meditation methods are explored.
Illuminate: Adventures of a Modern Meditator takes the reader on a exciting journey around the globe: from Fiji to India, George Harrison, Eckhart Tolle, Ammachi, taoists, gurus, celebrities, past lives, motherhood, and into the deep peace of being.
Being released in March, 2017 is Olivia's much anticipated Elegance of Being.
