Ora Nadrich is a certified Life Coach, certified Mindfulness Meditation teacher, and author of Says Who? How One Simple Question Can Change The Way You Think Forever.
New York Times best-selling author, Marianne Williamson says, “Ora Nadrich is a treasure. Her voice bears the passion of her own experience; she’s able to reach deep into our hearts because she’s culled so much wisdom from her own. When she speaks, I listen; when she writes, I read it; when she gives advice, I heed it. Her sparkle and power are not to be missed.”
Ora is a frequent blogger for the Huffington Post, and has been featured as one of their Mindfulness experts on Huffington Post Live. She’s written articles for Women’s Health, Yahoo Health, YouBeauty, Conscious2, MindBodyGreen, LA Yoga, Elevated Existence, Conscious Lifestyle, Success, and many other publications. She has been a guest on some of the top radio shows like Mental Health, Hay House, Om Times, and many more. Ora leads workshops on “The Says Who? Method”, a step-by-step process of confronting our negative thoughts, which are what often create the obstacles in our lives. Providing both tangible and practical lessons, Ora’s students are able to address and overcome their negative thoughts and outlooks to live their lives at their highest potential. Among her other workshops are; “Mastering Your Mind”, “Living a Mindful Life”, “Conscious Manifestation” and “Love, Sex, and Mindfulness.” Ora has also facilitated a popular Women’s Group for the last several years in Los Angeles.
If there is an overriding philosophy that Ora ascribes to, it is this: you can help yourself solve your own problems, you can do it daily, and the process doesn’t need to be complex. Flying in the face of the often oblique language of the self help movement, Ora prides herself on not only having devised a method of self discovery and mindful practice that is simple, direct and applicable to everyone, but is also easy to understand and put to use. And, like brushing your teeth, can be done daily and take about as much time. Simplicity is her mantra.
That philosophy forms the basis of, “Says Who? in which Ora vividly illustrates and breaks down her simple yet highly effective method, based on the principle that while we all face obstacles and negative thoughts in our lives, it is not enough to simply examine and be aware of them—we must question and challenge them in order to bring about true change.
Many of the obstacles people face, are the result of their own negative thoughts holding them back. And often those thoughts don’t even originate within them; they’re the ideas or opinions of someone else—a critical parent or angry spouse, for instance—which they believe without questioning to see if they’re even real or true. Since thoughts create beliefs, which create behavior, and ultimately our reality, negative thoughts are dangerous things to leave unchecked. You must question them, challenge them. Says Who?” shows us how.
More than simple “think positive” slogans and inspirational platitudes, this is not just a motivational book; instead “Says Who?” provides practical, tangible steps to tackling a condition that affects us all: negative thoughts.
Ora’s early background:
Ora grew up in Los Angeles, and was an actress and screenwriter, where she worked in film, episodic television, and commercials for more than a decade, which she feels provided her vast experience in exploring motivation and the process of self-discovery.

Ora’s extensive psycho-spiritual exploration in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Technology of Change, Jungian Analysis, Buddhism and Kabbalah has influenced her work. She is also a licensed Marriage Officiant, and a member of the National Association of Professional Women, and The International Women’s Leadership Association.
