About Yogi Shanti

Yogi Shanti, aka Jeff Maier is an inventor, author, musician and Kundalini Yoga teacher. Thru his writing, his music or helping healers worldwide up their game with his company,  he is fulfilling his life mission to make the world a better place, full of happier, healthier people.

“I spent the first 40 years of my life Left Brain Dominant (Engineer, Ego etc.). When I hired a top Life Coach, my Right Brain began to surface and I re-invented myself to inspire Peace, Love and Joy.  Suddenly the art, music and writings began to flow and life got much sweeter.  

My Coach told me that I had to shoot higher, though. I needed to aspire to something much bigger than myself. Something that might take longer than my lifetime. I committed to end suffering on the planet. I didn’t know how I was going to do it, but soon I met Dr Stanbridge.  We launched Rapid Release and along with it, lots of possibilities to make a positive impact for our planet.” 

Jeff Maier started his Left Brain career as an 18 year old software engineer at Rockwell International Space Systems on a high powered team working on the “Flight Code” for the GPS satellites before creating a dozen video games, including the “Cabbage Patch Kids” game for Coleco.

In 1985, Jeff founded Surf Systems, and designed hardware and software for some of the first virtual reality games in the world.  Air Boardin’ and Urban Surfin’ games in which you surfed or snowboarded by swerving around on a board with sensors onto the big screen TV’s in bars, niteclubs and arcades.

Jeff was named a Lite Beer All-Star in 1988 and was featured on ABC World News, ESPN, CNN, Fox and international TV shows for his virtual reality surfing and snowboarding simulators.

Jeff also spent 15 years as a crypto/network security expert saving up before co-founding Rapid Release Technologies LLC with Dr Stanley Stanbridge.

After discovering his Right Brain and taking on the pseudo name YogiShanti, he also became an author, singer, songwriter, yoga teacher and a successful investor in cause capitalism (socially conscious) companies.

“I used to be a “Go Getter” but now I am a “Go Giver”. I focused on making lots of money, but I spent it just as fast.  I didn’t create wealth until I realized the power of Deepak Chopra’s axiom (“The more you give, the more you get” and “The Law of Karma is Absolute”). Yoga has improved all aspects of my life, making me happier, healthier and wealthier so I would like to dedicate this site giving back and helping shine the light on “Cause Capitalism”

Stick around a bit to check out this site and see what I am up to. If you have an idea to make the world a better place, maybe I can be your “Mentor Capitalist” that helps you make your dream a reality.

“We are not just gifts from God, but we are also Gifts for God”
