Our purpose is to empower you to boldly rise to yours.
This methodology became the framework of Dharma Coaching Institute, where she partnered with her dear friends author Dr. Neeta Bhushan and business extraordinaire Ajit Nawalka to create the first ever certification that trained Soul Purpose (Dharma) and Spiritual Life Coaches.
And then the vision kept expanding. After overcoming the most challenging chapter of her life yet, her divorce, Sahara created the Triple-E Method that became the methodology for their Embodiment Certification, paired with Dr. Neeta’s experience of also going through a painful divorce and losing both her parents and brother before 19.
They took a stance - that your pain is related to your purpose - and empowered thousands to realize that within their greatest obstacles lie their greatest offerings to the world.
The seeds of Highest Self Institute began when Sahara Rose wished she had a place to dive deeper into the spiritual topics she was passionate about, in a way that was grounded, modern and relatable. She hit “publish” on the Highest Self Podcast in 2017, and the rest was history. It went on to become the #1 spiritual podcast on iTunes with over 35 million downloads to date.
Along that journey, Sahara published multiple books, including Discover Your Dharma with foreword by the eminent Deepak Chopra. The proprietary Dharma Blueprint method shared in this book helped tens of thousands of people find their purpose and was so fool-proof, that she knew she needed to pass along this wisdom to empower others to create the ripple effect of the world living their dharma.
We created Highest Self Institute as the premier spiritual coaching institute that offers trustworthy, reliable and high-quality certifications in a range of grounded spiritual topics, from dharma to embodiment to Human Design.
Our one-of-a-kind approach combines Eastern and Western wisdom to empower and equip students to use their healing to light up the world, rise to their callings, and build careers in devotion to their truth.
We train our students to create thriving careers for themselves as Soul Purpose, Spiritual Life and Embodiment Coaches, from creating their own private practice, to launching books, to speaking on stages, to corporate wellness and beyond.
We believe the world becomes a better place when women are handsomely rewarded for their feminine gifts of holding space, listening and offering guidance and we have supported thousands into creating abundant careers doing what they do best - connecting with others on a soul level.
We stand for the liberation of the feminine in her full expression. Our certifications honor the heart, emotions, creativity, intuition and creating your own unique path.
We believe that within your pain lives your purpose. That your darkest moments were the fertile soil from which your calling was planted.
We believe in the domino effect that naturally happens when people step into their mission and inspire others to do the same.
We believe healing is worthy of the highest abundance. We release old stories of martyrdom and the wounded healer archetype and encourage our coaches to think bigger and recognize their worth.
We’re honored to help you put your heart, intuition, womb and soul’s purpose first.

Jill is your not-so-typical Certified Dharma Coach, Business Coach, and Yoga Therapist. Picture this: a blend of wisdom from the boardroom and the yoga mat, sprinkled with a healthy dose of humor. Yeah, that's her!
With over 15 years of experience in corporate operations management and logistics, Jill juggled the intricacies of multiple businesses. From high school teacher, to systems planning to orchestrating the seamless movement of remote workers for big-league organizations.
But here's the twist: she’s a multi-passionate, hard-working individual who wasn't feeling the vibes of a high school classroom or a corporate office. So, Jill embarked on a journey of wellness certifications: Holistic Nutrition, Yoga Teacher Training (including Pre/Post-Natal and Doula Certification), and eventually Yoga Therapy, Dharma Coaching, and Business Coaching and Consulting.
Despite her success in the corporate world, something was missing. She had the degrees (Education & Physical Education), the logistics career, and even started working for a company with values she admired. But fulfillment? That was still elusive.
Enter her passion for coaching and a deep desire to make a real impact. Now, she bridges these two worlds. She works directly with companies, coaching Executives and Employees to bring out their best, while also guiding passionate individuals like you to build aligned lives and businesses.
She is a Mother of two, a Master Coach with the Dharma Coaching Institute where she trains and teaches others to find and follow their purpose and side-hustles as an artist and creator. (Multi-passionate, remember?)

Although she saw success in each role she obtained, something was always off in her heart and soul.
After the impactful hardship of losing her home to a fire, she found mediation.

This immersive experience saw Abmari come out in service of others in the most significant way possible, blending her acquired knowledge and assisting business owners, students, creatives, and leaders from places all over the world to find their passion, follow their bliss, and live a life full of purpose just like she was able to.
