The Team

Founded by therapist-musicologist Dr. Prateeksha Sharma, Ph.D., The Hansadhwani Institute is an outcome of decades of study and research. While her doctoral research lay in mental health (psychosis and recovery), there is considerable overlap with music due to her four decades engagement and training in the field, in the Kirana Gharana tradition of Hindustani Classical Music.

Sandeshika Sharma, Ph.D. is a health freedom advocate and coach. She has helped many people across the country to deepen their connection with the plant world and the microbiome. She assists clients’ journeys away from big pharma into more self-driven and pro-earth regimes. Before embarking on this trail she did a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of California (Irvine), and taught in several universities. Her current work is entirely in the domain of food and nutrition.
The Hansadhwani Institute team is a mix of individuals some among who contribute their expertise on a pro bono basis, as friends and supporters of our vision and mission. A dedicated and regular staff supports the day-to-day operations on the ground.
