Monica Stein’s company is Omthentic You. She is a lifestyle engineer, helping people feel better in their bodies, become stronger, and learn to find stillness— all with the purpose of helping them find their authentic self.  Once that occurs, good choices for oneself and others can be made.

Monica’s journey to becoming a lifestyle engineer began as a child when her father taught her how to meditate. She discovered she was intuitive but not knowing how to cope with her intuition, blocked it off completely. 

At college she studied civil engineering and a few years after graduating received an MBA while working at The Boeing Company. During this time she studied different types of meditation and rediscovered her connection to her intuition.

Over the years, her idea was brewing to help people connect to their authentic self. She became a Chopra Center certified instructor and learned many healing modalities. 

Today, those who work with Monica feel better in their bodies, are stronger, and are able to find stillness. Monica enjoys seeing the results in those she helps, especially the change in their face and overall demeanor.  

A good referral for Monica is someone who is looking for a break from life, a moment to find peace and stillness.

Monica is a new member of Mt. Diablo Business Women. She says the women she’s met have been an inspiration for her. In describing the group’s members she says, the women “show up, they have integrity, they are kind and purposeful.”  

She gives back to the community by volunteering with animal rescues—something she has been involved in for about 20 years. She also has given free yoga and meditation classes. 

When not working, Monica enjoys her dog rescue volunteer work, walking her own dogs, reading, walking in nature, learning, practicing yoga, and meditating. 

If you are seeking peace and stillness in your life, Monica has a beautifully wrapped box of wonderful tools and techniques to help you. You can learn more about her by visiting her Facebook page, or connecting with her on LinkedIn
