Emily Fletcher is the founder of Ziva and has taught the Ziva Technique to over 40,000 people. Her best-selling book, Stress Less, Accomplish More, debuted at #7 out of all books on Amazon and has been translated into 12 languages. In 2021, she launched zivaKIDS, the first meditation course of its kind for kids ages 4-14.

Her work has been featured by The New York Times, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Vogue and ABC. She’s been named one of the top 100 women in wellness to watch and has taught at Apple, Google and Harvard Business School.

A formerly stressed Broadway performer who was going gray at 27, Emily discovered a powerful practice that cured her insomnia and improved her health on the first day. The Ziva Technique is a powerful combination of mindfulness, meditation and manifesting designed to help you get better at life, not meditation.

Ziva graduates include Oscar, Grammy, & Emmy award winners, Navy SEALS & NBA players.

It’s Emily’s mission to help as many people as possible achieve extraordinary benefits — like dramatically reduced stress, anxiety relief and deep, restful sleep.

Memorable Quotes:

  • “We move into a very specific style of meditation…that’s really where the magic happens because when you start healing your stress from the past, your brain starts functioning better, your body starts functioning better.”
  • “It’s not that meditation takes away all your demands, and does not make your life inherently less stressful. What meditation does, is it allows you to adapt to the demands of your life. And it’s doing that by giving your body this deep healing rest and increasing something that we call adaptation energy.” 
  • “We don’t act in accordance with what we know. We act in accordance with the baseline level of stress in our nervous systems.” 
  • “Most people think that meditation means clearing their minds and then they just sit there feeling like they’re failing, then really what they’re looking for is excuses to not meditate. But once you understand that, like oh, this thing’s gonna make me better at all the things that I love, then your brain actually starts looking for reasons to do it.”
