Sahara Rose (@iamsahararose) is the best-selling author of Discover Your Dharma: A Vedic Guide to Finding Your Purpose with foreword by the eminent Dr. Deepak Chopra who proclaimed her “a leading voice of the millennial generation into the new paradigm.” This book is on the leading edge of helping people live a life of purpose, abundance, and joy. The word “dharma” means “purpose” in Sanskrit and her book guides readers to exactly discover, or as she says remember, what their purpose is, in a way that’s practical, grounded, and transformative.
Many know Sahara from her wildly popular podcast, the Highest Self Post, which is the #1 spirituality podcast on iTunes with over 25 million downloads, and her hilarious yet informative social media channels that bring spirituality to the masses in a relatable way.
Sahara has recently taken the step forward to pass the torch of finding your purpose to the others and founded of Dharma Coaching Institute, the world’s first double certification that trains Dharma (Purpose) and Spiritual Life Coaches. In Dharma Coaching Institute, students learn how to coach others in discovering their purposes as well so they can create a thriving career bringing more light, clarity and alignment with the world.
In recent times where Pew Research shows that as many as 70% of Americans in the workplace are seriously considering changing their careers, Dharma Coaches are more needed than ever before and this is a void Sahara is determined to fill. News sources have called this time “The Great Resignation” because so many are planning to resign from their careers as they go back to the office, in favor of careers more in alignment with their true selves, and this is exactly what Dharma Coaches can support with.
The first batch of 350 students at Dharma Coaching Institute sold out in just one week and they’re opening doors again in October. You can join the waitlist here.
What Drives Sahara Rose Ahead in Life?
Sahara Rose shares “I always knew I was born on this planet to help others. But I didn’t know-how. Coming from immigrant parents and a lineage of child marriage, female suppression, and political imprisonment, I always felt it was my personal responsibility to save the world”.
After spending most of her young adult life volunteering with NGOs, raising awareness for Human Rights campaigns as president of her local Amnesty International Chapter, and studying International Development, Sahara realized that the true way to change the world was to change the way people think. Instead of telling people what to do, if we could only raise their consciousness, they would know exactly what decisions to make to create a more just, abundant, and beautiful world for all.
This brought Sahara to her mission today to awaken others to the wisdom that lives within them. She believes none of us are here by coincidence but the very fact that we are here is for a reason. Sahara explains “You too are here to raise consciousness and have chosen to incarnate at this time of great transition to be part of the shift. Your gifts, your strengths, your interests, are encoded within you for a reason. The very reason you have them is that within them lies your dharma”.
According to Sahara “Your dreams are dreaming you back.” What that means is you will never have an idea you don’t have the ability to bring to life. That idea chose you as its ideal messenger because you are the perfect person to bridge it to reality. However, that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen instantly or easily. The obstacles you must overcome to bring that vision to reality are your soul’s unique curriculum to help you embody your dharma.
Sahara Shares “Discovering your dharma is the most important work we can do and why I’ve dedicated my life to it. I share my process and unique framework to help you remember your soul’s purpose in my book Discover Your Dharma and in Dharma Coaching Institute.”

Sahara’s Advice to Everyone
According to Sahara, everyone has a unique purpose, which they can find by honoring their truth. She shares “There are many pathways you can take and timelines you can embark, but the truth will always guide you home. Anytime you are confused ask yourself “Which option feels the most expansive?” and follow that, even if it doesn’t make sense to your logical mind. Be weird.
The German definition of the word “weird” is destiny. Being weird, different, and unique guides you to your destiny. Don’t be afraid to let your freak flag fly! In fact, the very things you are the most ashamed about are a part of your dharma”.
