Sheena Dabholkar is the founder and facilitator of Mindful and Body, an alternate holistic mental health initiative and wellbeing practice that makes the tools of self-care, mindfulness, and journalling accessible via workshops, counseling, and consultations.
A sometimes journalist, activist, artist, and creative, her other professional work informs her practice and vice versa, as she believes firmly in the interconnectedness of everything.
