Additional to her blog, Rita is a contributor for several international business and lifestyle magazines and co-editor of AyurvedaMantra Magazine dedicated to mindful living, Yoga and Ayurveda (Indian traditional medicine recognized by the World Health Organization).

Natural born intuit, Rita MINASSIAN grew up in France. She started to use her clairvoyance at the age of 5, unknowingly.
Throughout the years, Rita increasingly connected the non physical without sharing her daily life experience assuming they are equal for everyone. As a teenager, the books of Victor Hugo and Allan KARDEC about their connection to the spirit worlds, and later, Dr MOODY and Dr KUBLER-ROSS’s on NDE (Near Death Experience), opened a world of new possibilities, validating her perceptions of a reality which included precognition or lucid dreaming.
In 2000, it was tie for university and the study of traditional and far Eastern philosophies. After a bachelor’s degree in marketing and business management, and a University degree in history of arts, she built her professional career in corporate and industrial companies (please check LinkedIn profile).
In 2002, she decided to merge her skills and her love of art to work as a PR and global communication manager. Her intuitive abilities naturally led her to provide intuitive information to her coworkers. At first, it seemed challenging to interact with people evolving in “practical” spheres. But people would actually be very open to share their own experience with the subtle realms.
In 2005, she realized then that her true calling was to merge her intuitive skills and her professional life.
She started to provide consultations on a professional basis and founded the AKASHA INSTITUTE in France, an organization dedicated to explore spiritual sciences, facilitate the improvement of people’s extra-sensorial perceptions, promote holistic living and mindfulness, way before it became trendy. Rita strongly believes everyone is intuitive by nature. Through time, her sensitivity to the surrounding space and to what she calls the «memory of the walls», motivated her to connect to her inner compass and create a unique method of interior design, the Space Energy Balance © technique.
Her multicultural background and her globetrotter nature have opened possibilities to acquire a vast knowledge of various cultures, to a better understanding of human psychology, other traditions and beliefs. From the USA to Australia, her spiritual journey brought her in mystical places where she experienced holistic medicine: China, South East Asia (where she lived for 2 years) and India where she organized several group retreats after experiencing Ayurveda with King’s Charles personal homeopath, Dr Isaac MATHAÏ (SOUKYA Ayurvedic center). Reconnecting her sacred feminine energy took her to Armenia, Egypt, Turkey, Israel and Iran where she discovered the Zoroastrian culture.
In 2009, during her 3rd trip to India and after an amazing serie of synchronicities, she had the opportunity to follow the teachings of His Holiness the 14th DalaÏ Lama during an initiatory travel to Dharamsala-Himalayas, where his Holiness resides. The topic of the teachings, “Competition and Compassion”, became a landmark in her coachings.
The same year, after experiencing an outstanding accurate analysis of her astrological birth chart by a wise 80 years old buddhist astrologer in Paris, educated herself by her Doctor and astrologer father, she decided to learn the language of the stars. Both Jungian psychological and humanistic approaches are part of her training in France, Switzerland and London at the Center for Psychological Astrology (CPA), founded by renown Jungian analyst Liz GREENE.
Based on her deep interest of the latest research in neurosciences and quantum physics, particularly HEISENBERG’s work, such as contemporary physicists like Rupert SHELDRAKE, Michio KAKU and Philippe GUILLEMANT, she believes microcosm and macrocosm are intertwined and evolve in an ongoing growth process that science will completely unveil one day.
Her core philosophy of life is to apply Mahatma Gandhi’s saying and “Be the change you want to see in the world ”. When the phenomenon of “projection” is understood, it ultimately leads everyone to be their own master and miraculously co-create the reality they crave for, for themselves and for humanity at large, as we’re all interconnected.
Rita is known for her down to earth approach with an acute sensitivity to world events. She foresaw tangible events like the terror attacks in France and Belgium in 2015-2016, as well as the election of Donald J. Trump in 2016. She is the author of Rita’s Spiritual Blog and writes for several international magazines. She’s been a yoga practitioner since 2005 and a licensed Reiki Usui master since 2006.
Rita is a trained instructor of Primordial Sound Meditation technique from the Deepak Chopra center since 2010.
She provides individual consultations in Lyon (France) and Zurich (Switzerland) and online globally, but also group sessions worldwide. She is a certified therapist in Jungian psychology from the EPC (School of Clinical Psychology, France) under the supervision of its director Bénédicte UYTTENHOVE, a Jungian specialist. She regularly participates to conferences at the CG JUNG INSTITUTE in Zurïch in order to refine her knowledge of analytical psychology.
