Shafin de Zane is the nom de plume of the Bangladeshi writer and teacher Ahmed A. Mridha. He is the author of Redefine Your Reality, Spiritual Awakening & Enlightenment, and 5 Gold Keys for Practical Life magic, is a Bangladesh-born spiritual teacher devoted to expansion of awareness and spiritual evolution of all beings. His teachings are an open invitation to recognize the magical nature of physical reality and aligning oneself to the deeper intelligence of life itself.

Born in Dhaka in the late 70's, the story of Shafin de Zane is a cinematic tale of transformation and awakening. Raised in a middle class family, he started working for payment from age 7 and throughout the first 22 years of his life worked in numerous different jobs. At age 12 he was enlisted in an army institution to prepare for a military career and he spent the next 6 years in an institution where he was allowed to see the outside world only every 3 months.

Experiencing physical hardship and human behavior under stress, this is where he became fascinated with psychology and the human mind. He observed that the human mind operates in strange ways especially when there is a lot of stress involved. He also observed that certain “buttons” elicited certain behaviors and if you knew how to press those buttons, you could turn a human mind quite animal like in behavior. Out of survival necessity, Shafin took the very first steps towards understanding the human mind and how to control it.

After 6 years of cadet training, Shafin managed to opt out of the army due to “medical reasons” and continued his quest of understanding human behavior. However higher education for Shafin had to wait because even though there were great dreams, there wasn’t enough money to finance those dreams. He had decided he wanted to see the world and what better way to start that journey than travel across the world to a snowy land to study the workings of the human mind. It failed to occur to Shafin that this was the “wrong” dream for a poor boy from a third world country.

For the next 2 years Shafin worked in an IT institute and saved up enough money to finance the first part of what he had been dreaming of. A plane ticket and one semester’s worth of cash so he could go to study in Canada.

Even though the dream came true, and Shafin fell in love with Canada and its people, traditional university education did not suit well with him and he decided to drop out of university. He came back home to Bangladesh after one year with no idea of what to do.

Shafin de Zane started his business career at the age of 21 and failed in three consecutive businesses. At 23, he went bankrupt and lost virtually everything. He entered a state of depression and had nowhere else to go. Interestingly, this is when he made his real beginning…

Here is what Shafin writes about his experience:

“On my 23rd birthday, some interesting things happened. Some things that had never happened before. I received not a single phone call from anyone who would wish me a happy birthday. My best friend forgot. My Mum forgot. The girl I was dating at the time forgot… I stayed up all night wondering if this is how my life is always going to be? Lonely, poor and boring… My dreams were all shattered and I had no idea what I was supposed to do.

Right before the sun came out, I started crying. I cried not because nobody remembered me but because I just couldn’t find the answer to why I had to have such a lousy start. I cried and I cried for so long that I lost track of time. I didn’t go out for days and I didn’t sleep for nights. I never really contemplated suicide but this is when I reached that place called zero…

As I tell my students these days, being at zero is an interesting place to be. A lot of miracles tend to happen when you have reached the end of everything. Somehow when you have nothing to lose anymore, life takes a u-turn. So it was one of these days something happened in me and I decided that things have got to change. It cannot go on like this.

I made a definite promise to myself that I am going to do whatever it takes, no matter what, to bring about a change in my life! I was ready to do anything! And the story soon started to change!

For 2 years I went through the wildest roller coaster ride of my life! I went to absolute highs and I was given challenges that almost ruined me. But I had made a commitment to do whatever it takes. And in these two years, what I experienced and learned changed my life in beyond my wildest dreams!”

In the next 5 years, Shafin achieved and became what may look like a Hollywood movie. His businesses started picking up and branched out to Singapore, Russia and United States. In 2004 he moved to Singapore and began operating from there. This time he focused more on the healing arts and became a Certified Hypnotherapist at age 26. He became a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, USA the same year. Eventually from 2005, he began to teach more and more people the deeper sides of spirituality through meditation workshops on his unique mind-body-spirit self-healing method called “One Meditation”.

In 2006 Shafin wrote the book Redefine Your Reality which instantly became a hit on the internet, thanks to the popularity of the free Foundation Course that Shafin conducts for any one who is interested. Through a unique method of Internet marketing, Shafin is able to reach thousands of people across the world all of who experience a 7 day coaching program with him, completely free of charge. Ever since then, he has been working exclusively from Singapore and teaching students around the world both live in workshops and seminars and also over the Internet.

Francesca D'Rose, Singapore

More than the course contents I was impressed by Mr. Zane. He is a born teacher, everything a pupil looks upon in an instructor. Mr. Zane has given me the key to unlock my mind and slowly but surely dissolve the frustration, anger and other negative feelings that were blocking every aspect of my life. I have no words to repay what I have been taught. I will cherish his teachings for as long as know I have a soul and want to cleanse it.
I. B. S
