Artha 365!

Decide to Thrive.

A Life-Changing Yearlong Online Course with Yogacharya O’Brian

Cultivate prosperity consciousness and thrive.

For the sake of all.

“Do you have a dream? A vision of possibility that calls to you and returns again and again? A divine inspiration that is yours to bring forth? As spiritual beings, we all have nudges from the infinite, glimpses of life’s greater potentials. This is life’s prosperity imperative.”

– Ellen Grace O’Brian, The Jewel of Abundance: Finding Prosperity through the Ancient Wisdom of Yoga

Artha—wealth or prosperity—is one of the four Vedic aims of life—to live with higher purpose, prosper, enjoy life, and realize ultimate freedom. To prosper in harmony with our higher purpose is to thrive in all ways, to have the resources we need to fulfill our dreams and worthwhile endeavors. Our greatest wealth is soul wealth. Our spiritual resources are actualized by living consciously, staying in touch with our innate joy, and fulfilling our potential as we contribute to the well-being of all.

What students are saying:

Usha Rani Sharma

“I have found Yogacharya O'Brian's teachings on dharmic prosperity to be inspiring and energizing. My wealth set point has been raised to infinite possibilities. I am much more joyful and resilient, tuned into life's opportunities to serve and contribute.”
Usha Rani Sharma (Director, Divine Life Institute)

Sukhraj Sohal

“While I’ve known the value of spiritual practices like meditation for some time, I've struggled in garnering the motivation, mindset, and discipline necessary to manifest the abundant life I desire. Having recently studied Yogacharya O’Brian’s teachings on Artha and Dharma, I now see the moral imperative to thrive in all aspects of life; as prospering in one area of life supports the others and ultimately serves the highest good.”
Sukhraj Sohal (High School Teacher)

Tina Petrigni

“Yogacharya O’Brian affirms what I always knew intuitively, that we are all interconnected in this great and awesome oneness of existence. We are graciously invited to inquire – does my intention, thought, word or action support the well-being and prosperity of all? This shift has profoundly transformed how I live my daily life. I now find myself pausing to consciously see with a lens of global wellness and prosperity, what is the best choice? A remarkable transformation is in progress now, I aim to apply this view of abundance, call it forth and claim it in all areas of my life, with the intention to live in alignment with “what I do matters…so that all may prosper” - beautifully inspiring!”
Tina Petrigni (VP of People Operations)

Roya Hosseini


“Yogacharya O’Brian’s teachings in Artha have transformed my life, my family, and my understanding of who I am and why I’m here. I am so grateful for this divine wisdom and grace that flows through all her teachings.”
Roya Hosseini (Co-Founder, The Khaled Hosseini Foundation)
