About The Academy of Thriving

The Academy of Thriving is dedicated to helping YOU become the most effective ChangeMaker, i.e. a ChangeMaker who can:

  • Create change with love
  • Experience ever expanding inner peace, purpose & prosperity
  • Make change fun & easy!

Super interactive, fun and intriguing ideas! Learning about the three principles of Transformative Action made a lot of connections and finally it all clicks… And this was just an introduction! I loved how relevant the teachings are to today’s climate. I am starting to see how changing the world can be fun and easy!”

– TASNEEM NOOR, Author of the “The Faith Connection”, Participant of the “How to Change The World With Love Workshop“.

Here’s the truth: Research shows only 1% of the world population is truly in control of their happiness.

To be truly in control of your happiness means you have the ability to choose to be happy regardless of circumstances.  And it means that you’re able to create a life of ever expanding inner peace, purpose and prosperity.

Statistically, you’re most likely part of the 99%

You feel stuck in an emotional roller coaster, out of control of your happiness.

You’re struggling to either find, or live in alignment with your life meaning and purpose.

You find it hard and lonely to create change in your life and world.

You find yourself always craving more


And worst of all, you doubt yourself, wondering you are good enough, if you have enough …

You are afraid that your dream to change the world and change your life is just too unrealistic …

It’s so frustrating, isn’t it?

Fun And Easy

But the 1% knows…
It is actually, absolutely, very realistically, possible to take control of your happiness & make change FUN & EASY in the process!

Think about it, once you have your feelings, like fear and doubt, under control, the rest is just actions that need to be taken. And it is easy to take action when you’re feeling happy and in control, true or true?

You just need the right knowledge, the right skills & the right systems to make it fun and easy to change the world and change your life too!

Here is what just one of our students has to say:

“I feel so much more confident … my self-esteem is so much better … I notice that I don’t have negative words coming in my head anymore and if they do I catch them right away … the biggest part is that the tools are a part of me now … they are part of my lifestyle…”

– LINDA PATEL, Graduate of the “The Happiness 101 Class”.

Unfortunately, you won’t learn this in school or (most likely) even at home.

Statistically, the vast majority of your teachers, family and friends are likely to be part of the 99% of people who are out of control of their happiness and who find it hard to create change in their lives and the world.
How can they teach you what they don’t know?

If you want to learn how to take control of your happiness, and make change fun and easy in the process, you must learn it from the 1% of people who are living this reality!

Training in how to take control of your happiness and become the most effective ChangeMaker
is rare even at the University level.

And when it is taught, it is usually by instructors who have only theoretical knowledge of the issue – they are not actually living this reality! Furthermore, the classes, are rarely holistic in their approach.

For example you may graduate with a degree in psychology which helps you get a good understanding of how to create change at a personal level. However, you’ll probably learn very little about the most effective methods of creating social change. And similarly, you may graduate with a degree focused on teaching you about social change methods but learn very little about creating personal change.

And either way, even after having invested many years and tens of thousands of dollars in your education, you find yourself struggling to create positive change, and make change fun and easy, because you’re still missing critical knowledge, skills and systems in areas like:

  • How to choose to be happy regardless of circumstances
  • How to have healthy relationships (both personal & professional)
  • How to make money doing what you love
  • How to change the world with love & nonviolence

Meet your Transformation Guru, Samia Bano.

Whether you want to change your life or change the world, or even if you’re just starting out on your journey of becoming the most effective ChangeMaker… If you want to make it fun and easy to create change, you have to learn it from people who are already living this reality.

At the Academy Of Thriving you will learn to take control of your happiness and make change fun and easy from ChangeMakers actually living this reality in their everyday lives!

Samia is the Award-Winning Author of “Make Change Fun And Easy:
How to Create Inner Peace to World Peace In 3 Simple Steps”.

Using the principles she teaches, Samia has mastered the art of making change fun & easy! Samia’s expertise as a Transformation Guru are grounded in her academic training and hard won life wisdom.
As a survivor of child sexual abuse, Samia began her quest for inner peace & positive change when she was merely 8 years old. After more than 20 years of struggle, Samia successfully eliminated suffering from her life & learned how to take control of her happiness. She now leads a thriving life full of inner peace, purpose, and prosperity.

The key to Samia’s success lies in her learning to create change with love such that change also becomes fun and easy :).

Here is what just one of her clients had to say while going through her Transformative Action class:

“This class has been by far the best, most fruitful, and most transformative class I have taken over the course of any and all academic education I have acquired in my life. Honestly I don’t want this education to end. What I am loving about the course is how it’s giving my thoughts and knowledge, much needed structure and guiding me to transform my mindset, therefore my life, to the next best level. I’m thoroughly enjoying it!”

— SONIA MOOSANI, ChangeMaker in Training.

Her clients have also described Samia as a ball of sunshine radiating positive energy, super interactive, fun and engaging. Samia’s clients say they feel nurtured, are able to connect to their passions in life, and experience a deep sense of peace as they work with her.

One of the most important lessons Samia learned in her journey of transformation from a victim to survivor to thriver is that we are all interconnected, interdependent parts of a whole. As such, we cannot achieve healing and peace for ourselves in isolation or at the expense of others. Indeed, we heal ourselves by healing others.
This understanding also grounds Samia’s commitment to oneness and peace. And it gave birth to her life mission – make it possible for all people to live with unconditional love for all people. This mission now guides Samia’s every choice.

Here is what you need to learn in the best ways…
