Nina Purewal - Founder

Nina is the Founder of Pure Minds and the co-author of the bestselling book Let That Sh*t Go - a book about how to find peace of mind and happiness in the everyday.

She majored in Business and minored in Psychology at Wilfrid Laurier University and has over 12 years of corporate experience in Marketing & Sales within the Consumer Packaged Goods industry. She is specifically known for her impact around Corporate Social Responsibility. In recent years, she moved to cause marketing, leading an environmental start-up for Canada.

She has been studying mindfulness for over 20 years and practicing meditation for over a decade. Wanting to take her search for mindfulness more seriously, in 2010, she put her career on hold and moved to Northern California. There she took a 1-year course in meditation & classical spiritual philosophy through the Chinmaya Vedanta Center. During that year, she lived in an ashram in the Redwood forest and completely 'unplugged'.

She now follows her passion and teaches mindfulness and meditation across various platforms. Coming from a corporate background, she is especially passionate about bringing mindfulness to the workplace, to help companies and employees become their best selves
