Yolanda Quiroz Soto, JD - I graduated from Stanford Law School in 2000. As an undergraduate, I studied with four Nobel Laureates at UCB and UCLA and graduated with a BA in History, summa cum laude. Prior to law school, I worked with Prof. Jean Lipman-Blumen and Prof. Harold J. Leavitt at The Achieving Styles Institute (now The Connective Leadership Institute) in Pasadena, CA. I received my spiritual training at the Church of Divine Man in Berkeley, CA and Aesclepion Healing in San Rafael, CA. In addition, I am trained in Transcendental Meditation, Kriya Yoga, Zen Meditation, Vipassana Meditation, Tibetan Meditation, and Mindfulness Meditation. I am the creator of YQS LLC which houses the genius method, the creative genius, and meditationBRAIN - programs devoted to unlocking our full human potential. 


what meditationBRAIN practitioners are saying




"Absolutely life-changing. Period." Mike Buchko, Entrepreneur



"When I was getting stuck, YQS helped me look at the stuck energy and work it in a safe, fun environment. Instead of hitting a writer's block and dumping everything and letting weeks go by before looking at my writing, I got back to it feeling more ready and more capable of succeeding. It's hell on a screen play if you spend too much time away from it. Being able to work energy with YQS saved me valuable time. Thank you for helping me keep the energy flowing toward success." N. Lescher, Writer / Director 



"YQS's meditation class taught me how to claim my life and start living it on my own terms. I am more present and self-aware and therefore able to not only appreciate the good moments in a more fully, but handle difficult moments in a more productive way. The meditation class is helping heal old wounds, have more self-confidence, and be excited about the future. I look forward to continuing to discover who I really am and sharing it with others." T. Winters, Wellness Expert



"The most important aspect of YQS's teachings is that it empowers you as the healer and visionary of your own life. This in and of itself makes YQS invaluable to those who wish to enrich their own lives instead of relying on others to heal them. I am forever grateful." C. Funk, CEO, Belly Sprout



"The information I have learned and practiced from these classes will keep me at a significant advantage well ahead of my colleagues, family, and friends. I highly recommend this program as a key element in healing and mastering your life." R. Mercado, VP, Edison


"I feel really good...I feel more whole and strengthened." D. Best, CEO, VP, Best Drinks
