Rev. Melinda Johnston, M.Msc, founder of Buddhi Institute offers transformative Consciousness Coaching, and Self-Empowerment Programs, online Spiritual Development Classes, Spiritual Counseling, and Retreats that provide a dynamic process for healing on all levels of mind, body and spirit.
Founded in 2012, Melinda's passion for spiritual philosophy, the healing wisdom of YOGA, and the joy of gathering spiritual women together for learning, growing and sharing, ignited her dream of creating Buddhi Institute.
Buddhi, is a Sanskrit word, which means, the faculty of intuitive discernment or direct Spiritual Awareness. It is a passive and latent principle, and it is only experienced through union with absolute consciousness, by which it becomes the reasoning of Higher Self. This level of consciousness within each of us, and is the only “vehicle” of truth and well-being.
Buddhi is a "mindset" that provides one with Freedom. Free from ego, this aspect of mind is not bound by external concepts of right and wrong, it does not “think” in this way. It functions as an unseen internal, perception of being. It is the faculty of mind that goes with the flow, embraces all life experiences, has an unlimited ability to create and to Love, and is the seat of consciousness for obtaining pure Enlightenment. It is the Divine Mind, which each of us have access to. Self-Discovery is the process.
Hence, Buddhi Institute is the perfect name for this "gathering place" for women to learn, live, share and grow together. Together we are a Spiritual Tribe of women from all walks of life. In online classes we lift each other up, share our testimonies, our discoveries, and our setbacks. We embrace spiritual wisdom from a variety of traditions.
In private one-to-one Consciousness Coaching, the training techniques are derived from the Yoga Sciences and are formatted for practical application in day-to-day living. Yoga Science is the science of Pure Wisdom that has the power to heal most conditions that trouble the mind, body or spirit.
Women's Retreats are held locally in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. These weekend retreats offer yoga, meditation and mindfulness training, along with wisdom training for spiritual growth. Occasionally, we embark on epic adventures for the soul, and this summer have a trip planned to Bali.
Self-Study Guidebooks are also available to aid you in your private spiritual practice. Daily readers will offer you inspiration, guidance, and humorous practices for maintaining mindfulness.
We are so glad you are here, and we can’t wait to meet you. Explore the website and see all that is offered. You can browse the catalog of courses, read blog posts, listen to meditation music videos, and sign up for the monthly newsletter. You can also reach out anytime if you have any questions or feedback.
Many Blessings to you on your Journey.

Melinda Johnston, Founder
Every morning when our eyes open from sleep, we enter into a portal of awareness called, Waking Consciousness. According to the Yoga Sciences, we enter into this "state" clean, refreshed, and renewed...and well...forgiven.
It is the limitations and patterns of the rational Thinking Mind and emotional sub-conscious mind that bring all past traumas, problems, addictions, and doubts into each new day.
There is a process for rising above those limitations, and becoming absolutely free of them.
