About me

Amil Bera is Founder of Advaya, which means “without a second; unique” in Sanskrit.  Our logo is a modern rendition of the bodhi tree, under which the Buddha attained enlightenment.   In 2010, after growing frustrated with Wall Street culture, Amil founded Advaya Invest – a registered investment advisor.  Ten years later, Amil launched Advaya Metamorph – a transformational coaching business.

There is no true wealth without health.  While Amil enjoyed the intellectual challenge of markets and investing, his soul needed more than reason and logic.  Throughout his life, Amil felt that he and his contemporaries were often going through motions without intentionality.  Amil started the journey of raising his consciousness by practicing yoga and reading ancient philosophies.  He supplemented this with studying ayurvedic principles and exploring the human energy system.  Once ready to make practical changes to align his living, Amil sought out a coach.  The benefits of good coaching soon became clear and he wondered how much brighter the world could be if more people empowered themselves through deep transformational work.  While a variety of personal experiences have led him to this specific path, the message has always been the same – to be the light that the world needs while remaining true to himself.

Advaya Metamorph is the cumulation of nearly a decade of inner work, professional development and spiritual evolution.  Our transformational coaching program aims to help ambitious people who are ready for change connect with their inner wisdom.  Our view is that each person is born with the resources to make life rich and rewarding.  True fulfillment requires looking deeply inward and listening to inner wisdom, which is challenging with the distractions of modern life.  Once the seed of awareness is planted, personal evolution often becomes a fulfilling lifelong journey.

Amil’s varied global experiences have shaped Advaya’s approach to serving clients.  Curiosity about the planet and different cultures has inspired Amil to explore over eighty countries.  Amil holds a Master in Public Policy from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.  He is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Economy with High Honors and the Departmental Citation.  Amil holds an Executive Education Certificate in Valuation from New York University’s Stern School of Business.  He is  a Yoga Alliance RYT-200 registered yoga instructor.  Amil has also obtained Health Coach and Life Coach certifications from the Health Coach Institute, where he is currently pursuing a Transformational Coaching Method Mastery certification.

Prior to Advaya, Amil served as Vice President/Senior Investment Research Analyst for Wells Fargo in San Francisco; as Relative Value Strategies Analyst for SAIL Advisors, a Hong Kong-based Fund of Hedge Funds; as the sole Investment Analyst for a family office invested in hedge funds, private equity, direct equities, derivatives and real estate; as Associate in Equities Trading for Banc of America Securities in New York; as an Analyst for Cornerstone Research in New York; as a consultant for the International Monetary Fund in Mauritius; and an Economics Intern for the U.S. Department of State in New Delhi.
