Ordained as an interfaith minister, Devaa draws upon 20 years of study and practice of the most respected systems of personal growth and spiritual development. Her debut album, Sacred Alchemy, aims to reawaken and liberate the many dimensions of the sacred feminine.

For the past 20 years Devaa has studied and experienced many systems of personal growth and spiritual development. She has finished her doctoral work and received her D-Min in 2012, after being ordained an interfaith minister by the Chaplaincy Institute in 2005. In addition, Devaa received a BA in Anthropology with Honors and an MA in International Development from Stanford University.

In earlier years, Devaa was the founding Executive Director of the Full Circle Fund, dedicated to building a new generation of civic leaders. Full Circle uses the “venture philanthropy model,”–identifying great nonprofit organizations and serving them with financial grants as well as hands-on help in key areas and access to to networks that can accelerate organizations to the next level. In addition, Devaa worked as an Associate Consultant at the Boston Consulting Group where she offered management advice to Fortune 500 Companies.

A core part of Devaa’s path includes sacred music. She recently launched her first CD, Sacred Alchemy, an album with a transformational purpose – to reawaken and liberate the many dimensions of the sacred feminine. Each song has a specific feel or texture to it evoking the archetypal energies of different Goddesses from the world’s spiritual traditions. For example the song “Tara” explores the softer yin aspects of compassion, “Saraswati” reveals the playful and creative energies of the muse, “Shekinah” offers the wisdom of the Crone, and “Aphrodite” expresses the sensual pleasures of life.

“Devaa is a living example of the Evolutionary Woman arising in our midst. Combining brilliant intellect, business experience, spiritual development and now a major outreach into the world to assist is all in our evolution, she is a loving and inspiring woman leading us forward in the 21st century.”

~Barbara Marx Hubbard, Foundation for Conscious Evolution

“The time (or should I say timelessness) that I spent with Devaa was profound. After years of seeing all kinds of ’experts’ I can honestly say the time with Devaa broke something loose and now I feel burden-free, as well as much lighter and more joyful. I recommend her work to anyone who is ready to fly.”

~Marcia Wieder, CEO and Founder Dream University


“I’ve met a lot of teachers, healers, and leaders in my years on the speaking circuit. When I wanted to dive deeper with my work and share from a new level of vulnerability, I turned to Devaa. She helped me lead from my authenticity, connect with my depth, and open in ways that proved energizing and effective. Her support enabled me to go to a whole new level in my public presentation and bring new qualities to my leadership. She helped me in a million ways that I cannot even describe. I am blessed by her presence. Thank you Devaa!”

~Marci Shimoff, Bestselling author with over 14 million books sold, including Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul and Happy for No Reason

“Devaa could be called a spiritual midwife, assisting people in the birthing their inner-selves. She empowers you, assists you, gently encourages you, and honors you for your efforts. With Devaa’s impeccable assistance, I was able to go through what is so far the most powerful experience of my life. I am extremely grateful!” 

~Nathalie Daneau, Intuitive Coach and Counselor



“Through working with Devaa and her teaching partner, Elayne, My life is completely transformed in every way. I have a real inner confidence now in who I am and why I’m here and what I’m here to do. I moved through all the shame I’ve been holding over the years of actually not wanting to fully show up; and something much brighter and lighter and more sparkling has shown up.

And of course because of that, my whole life is changing and all my relationships including the ones closest to me, with my husband and my daughter. They’re very tender and beautiful and loving and they’ve been quite tense for the last few years. So it has gone from that to every areas of my life really.”

~ Melanie Eclare
