Behnaz is a spiritual aspirant. At age 16 she started the Transcendental Meditation practice, and dedicated the next 15 years exclusively to her inner awakening. Behnaz has a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from UC Berkeley. After completing graduate studies, she followed her inner guidance and refocused on spiritual work.

Behnaz is an energy healer, meditation teacher and spiritual coach who lives with her family in Northern California. She is also the author of Divine Love, Pure Joy,: An Intimate Awakening to Ever-Present Spirit Guides, which she published in 2015.

From my experience, Behnaz connects with the heart, and heals and teaches from a place of love.  


A spiritual counseling and healing session with Behnaz is a life-enhancing experience. She will bring you to a place of profound peace and help you identify and release the root cause of disease, illness and emotional blocks. Behnaz has a gift for sensing and communicating with our spirit guides, clearing attachments and bringing in divine mother healing energy!

The most beautiful gift you can give yourself is a healing session with Behnaz! Her connection to the divine radiates through her connection with you as she dissolves all misaligned blocks and frequencies that are no longer serving you. She lovingly releases that energy and any attachments that need to be cleared. Once cleared, she brings in the highest vibrational energy of Source that radiates love, truth, beauty and goodness in alignment with the truth of who you really are. She is a gift and I highly recommend her services. My session with her was deeply profound and my life forever changed. For that, I am eternally grateful! I hope you choose to experience and receive the love and healing that she effortlessly provides! Behnaz is truly amazing!

Behnaz brings to her spiritual counseling and healing sessions a deep compassion, an ability to see the beauty and essence of a person and reflect it back to them, and a transformative ability to make all in her presence feel safe and cared for.

I have observed in counseling and energy healing sessions that Behnaz has deep awareness of other’s soul experience and she holds true love and compassion for all without exception. She has an affinity towards truth and equanimity, and gently brings others there too.  


In my life, one of the people who taught me how to deeply listen and make decisions was Behnaz. I met Behnaz when I was 4 years of age and, to this day, I still remember everything from our classes. I was mesmerized and stunned by her character, kindness and teachings.Through her meditation lessons, I learned to think deeply and to be calm and patient. More than that, I learned to become a fully trusted person and many people’s confidant. I saw her again recently after 30 years and was reminded of all the great memories and the lessons she imparted.  I find her to be the same kind, giving and wonderful teacher– just as I remember her as a young child. Her role in my life was greater than all of my teachers and everyone I knew. I could never forget her. 


Divine Love, Pure Joy by Behnaz Herobadi

Divine Love, Pure Joy – by Behnaz Hero Shahidi

This book is about awakening to, trusting, and embracing ever-present Divine support. My story began as I was enjoying a pleasant evening. I was called and asked to begin writing. Little did I know that one of the most exciting times of my life was about to begin. Over the course of two and one half months, through loving communions, I received information from spirit guides about the Divine Plan, Love as a Divine principle, children who have come to earth for enlivening Love, and my personal mission in this life. I am excited to share my story with you and hope it inspires you to be open and receptive to Divine presence in your own life.
