Sunil is a wandering mountain man whose heart and spirit lies in nature. He travels the length and breadth of the Himalayas deepening his relationship with nature as well as engaging in dialogue with communities to bring meaningful social change using various tools including nature based spirituality.
He has been part of setting up various social enterprises and initiatives over the last 2 decades in various Himalayan states. He has worked on a multitude of issues ranging from energy efficiency, sustainable livelihoods, enterprise development, palliative care, mental health, environmental issues, climate change, mysticism and eco-psychotherapy.
Currently much of his work focuses on enabling social initiatives to develop efficient strategies to bring collective action that can affect positive social change on the ground.
Nature based work is at the core of his endeavours to bring about meaningful change in our collective consciousness which he pursues through the Healing forest initiative. The objective of this initiative is reconnecting people to nature and bringing a more human element into environmentalism and conservation. The idea is to show people the healing powers of nature and how it is at the very roots of our well being. This is done through healing walks and retreats into the forests. The principle is to develop meaningful relationships with nature, ourselves and our communities.
