Raquel R Sanchez

Raquel R Sanchez is the humble, yet powerful and holistic angel behind zen vida. 

The idea behind zen vida came to her as a lightbulb moment while browsing at Whole Foods in 2017. She kept seeing women reading ingredients in several aisles and would often help them choose the item. She got the idea and the name right then and there and designed the logo, got the domain name and web hosting and procrastinated until six business cohorts later, and finally launched zen vida in 2024.

Raquel is 110% holistic, inside and out. She graduated from the T. Colin Campbell Plant Based Course at eCornell and is also a Board Certified Master NLP Practitioner, Master TLT Practitioner and Master Hypnotherapist, recognized in 47 countries.

Dr. Elizabeth Bolen ND TNLP TTLT TCHt

This is the “marketing” that gets promoted: An adventurous woman who broke free from conventional paradigms to liberate a new health era. Her tenacity keeps her grounded. Sounds perfect, eh? Well, perfect is the ONLY “comfortable” option for a high-functioning perfectionist. I grew up pretending that everything was FINE, and accomplishments could cover up the fact I was miserable and constantly blowing up my life.

Everything I knew how to do wasn’t working for my life. No matter how hard I tried. I needed new tools and an entirely new worldview. I asked the universe for answers. Unknowingly, I was just sent on a journey of a lifetime. I was led to Dr. Kim Redman, Mystic and Master Trainer of NLP and Hypnosis. She mentors me and has empowered me on my journey so that I can do the same for others.

I blended my Doctorate in Naturopathy with my expertise in multiple healing modalities into my training. Now the Founder of the Bolen Health Institute, an International Institute, I designate healers in four different professional designations allowing for rapid personal growth and transformation.
