Death fish go with the flow. Rebels go against the current. Survivors accept reality and become one with reality.

About the speaker

Mitra Mostofi is the author of This Was No Coincidence, a self-help memoir in which she narrates her journey on surviving an identity crisis. Growing up a white immigrant in a non-affluent black neighborhood — not rich enough to be cool enough with her Royal-esque expat family — she had many life-altering events. Her journey with breast cancer at 27 gave her the courage to set out on the path of self-awakening.

Her contemplative practice of self-awareness enriched in her creativity, rather than reactivity. Her background is in medicine, and Mitra plans to utilize the knowledge of physical health in bridging mind-body awareness. Her second book, Reflections to Enlightenment, is a collection of her collected adages.

At an interfaith dialogue in 2015, Mitra brought connectivity through self-actualization in a polarizing time. She spoke on an IAW Foundation panel in 2016 and co-facilitated a workshop for young cancer survivors. Mitra is a graduate of More to Life and the Landmark Forum. “When I was asked to speak about self-awareness at a Mensa conference themed Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, I quickly thought how on earth or outer space can I relate self-awareness to Star Trek. After watching The Final Frontier, I was assured to know that Star Trek is all about self-awareness. It was the first of its kind to introduce this somewhat vague topic to the general public. I then realized Mitra is my name and mission Sybok. I have a daily journey in crossing the Great Barrier in our Final Frontier. The title of my talk was ‘Self-Awareness Starship to Cross the Great Barrier.’ The URL domain for Mitra was already taken so I came up with Mitraship. I vision building a self-awareness community virtually, metaphysically and or through my events. We live in our own learning lessons. What we share can help the momentum of self-awareness. Please stay on board with us.”
