She travels, writes, and speaks at various events. She is based in Kanha Shantivanam – the world headquarters of the Heartfulness Institute.
The gamut of her past profiles range from that of being a freelance journalist, media anchor in France for television and radio, directing several Indo-French committees and think tanks (Inde-en-Ligne, Indian Professionals Association in France, Indian Connection Association) for economic and cultural exchange, an Ecology Activist, to that of a speaker at several national and international forums. Her having lived in both India and France forms the plinth of her interest in cross culture communication, PR and event management like at UNESCO Paris and AYUSH ministry India where she represents the Shri Ram Chandra Mission. She is also the co-founder and Chargée-de-Communication at the Vedic Federation of France. She has graduated in English literature and post graduate in language, civilization and communication in French. For over a decade she participated in inter-faith meetings in France, in the company of Swami Veetamohananda of the Ramakrishna Mission France, and under the aegis of the DIM (Dialogue Inter-Monastique), along with several faith groups (Multiple Vedic, Several Christian traditions and churches, Islam and Sufism, Judaism, various Buddhist followings principally). This regular exchange over many years, in the aim of a unified humanity, gave an occasion to engage with many teachers and their congregations from all horizons and it formed a rich tapestry of networks and insights along with experience in conducting and meaningful participation in exchanges of this delicate yet significant import.
She also teaches the “Quantum Healing Method “, a hands-on, Quantum-science based method, that she has redefined from her own experiences as a healer over the years. It stems from the confluence of ancient wisdom and the far reaching frontiers of new scientific discoveries. A perfect blend of the east and west, her treasure of beliefs and ideals provide a fresh perspective through a passion for science and spirituality that find an expression through her practice and outreach.
Her passion is to bring together and connect everyone who has been carried by wonder beyond the mundane into the land of feelings and thoughts and endless possibilities through the ancient yet modern practice of Raja Yoga under the Sahaj Marg method (Heartfulness meditation) worldwide.
