Media Profile

"Dhevaksha merges left brain science with spirituality and nature. She has the feminine 'Dr. Deepak Chopra-esque' ability to blend the best of Eastern and Western philosophies, and to me, there is no higher honor. With a beautiful energy and 1,000 kilowatt smile, are Dhevaksha's methods not the way forward at any time, if not in this time of uncertainty?" - Justin Charles, Former AFL Footballer 

"Dhevaksha is like a female Eckhart (Tolle), able to channel a message and articulate it so clearly. It's a joy to witness her evolution, passion and inspiration. She has so much to offer." - Petrina Hargrave, coFounder, Thrivers Ark
