Mukta (Philippa Jarden) has been studying and teaching meditation and ancient scriptures, such as: Bhagavad Gita, Patanjali Yoga Sutras, and Vedant Philosophy at the International Meditation Institute (IMI) Himalayas, India, since 1985.
She was awarded a Doctor of Meditation from Vishwa Unnyayan Samsad, New Delhi, India, and is certified as an advanced Meditation Instructor from the IMI as well as from Transformation Meditation Institute.

I really loved getting to know Mukta. What a great teacher. She is vibrant, warm and inviting, and her class was very inspiring and well thought out. She is always willing to help and support you through the journey. I liked that it was live and interactive and I looked forward to each week.
I just want to say how grateful I am for learning from you. I really appreciate all you do and teach. You and your teaching have helped me revive my love and commitment to meditation. You helped me get to know, understand the experiences I have when I meditate, and more. I just want to offer my gratitude to you and Shree for the great work you are doing. Thank you.

When you guided us through the meditation and actually said the word gap after the mantra, I actually could feel the space in my body and felt the energy of the mantra. I loved that you guided that for us and I will be using this method to get my students started on the mantra. Nicole Juhl
The Transformation Meditation program with Mukta was so enlightening and profound for me. Coming into the course, I had already taken the home study part of it and had some experience with meditation. But, the live course brought meditation alive and allowed me to connect the dots on several concepts. The sessions gave me so much insight and wisdom and allowed me to dive deeper into my practice. Mukta has a wonderful way of expressing the depths of meditation in a practical and simplistic way. Each session brought me closer to my personal space and gave me the tools to expand my being into a relationship not only with myself, but with the universe. Nicole, Meaningful Movements
I wish to take a few moments to share the experiences that I’ve had with Mukta (Pip Jarden). I first became aware of her when I was certifying as an instructor in Transformational Meditation in 2016, then recently started attending her regular online sessions via ZOOM. It’s often said, “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” Well, I’ve found my spiritual teacher. Mukta’s compassion of self and desire to see others grow in their walk of pure, free bliss is evident from your first meeting. Mukta’s deep level of understanding and conveyance is immediately noticeable when your curiosity sparks and you seek knowledge. Her ability to explain and then help you apply what you learn is heartwarming. I highly recommend that you join us in one of her online sessions. Come with an open mind and heart and you’ll move further along your path on this journey. You won’t regret it.

Taking a course with Mukta was pure joy. Because of her authentic combination of knowledge, humor, and humility it makes it fun interesting and proof in my case that you can teach an old dog new tricks. I thank her so much for accepting me in her class to learn from someone who lives what she teaches. I look forward to her next class.
