How Samavira was born
Lauren Schuivens, the Founder and visionary behind Samavira is a certified meditation & mindfulness instructor trained by Buddhist Monks in Thailand. She has worked with some of the biggest personal growth authors in the world during her career at Mindvalley and has facilitated events for hundreds of people worldwide.
Even though she is a successful entrepreneur today, her story started off on a very different path.
Lauren became a victim of armed violence and was raped before she turned twenty. Due to her early life trauma, she developed a severe eating disorder and had to deal with depression and suicidal thoughts. As a result, she was prescribed antidepressants for treatment.
Her therapists said she would be dependent on medication for the rest of her life — but she decided to prove them wrong.
