Hello! I’m Megha.
I’m on a journey of learning to thrive: to understand myself better, to take care of myself, and to express myself and my gifts more fully. I enjoy working with others on their inner journeys, as a co-traveller and facilitator: enabling them to understand themselves, discover what works for them, and take action.
My most dreaded question to be asked is: What do you do?
I do a lot of things, but not all at once! I create courses and workshops, I facilitate group work, I mentor and coach individuals, I do podcast-style interviews, I write and speak about my experiences, and much more. I’m a creative person, a freelancer, and an entrepreneur. Helloo Sunshine! is the banner under which I carry out my life’s work, which revolves around self-leadership and personal development, around empathy and love.
But wait, there is more to me than first meets the eye.
It took me a while to discover the work I truly want to do. Prior to finding my calling, I’ve worked in strategy and finance, in the corporate and development sectors, in India and the U.S.
My business and development sector leanings still inform my work:
I care deeply about social justice; about building cultures that are inclusive, respectful, and empowering; to consider power and privilege; to look at purpose and contribution.
I care about being practical and effective. I want to bring my love of structure and practicality to doing ‘inner work’; to move beyond motivational and inspiring talk and uncover the ‘how’ and actionable steps.
All of this is sounding very serious and put-together, and I must interject with some silliness:
I’m quite serious about being silly! The truth is, for a long time I was only paying attention to being ‘put together’ and professional. That felt incomplete. I want to be all of myself and bring all of me to my work. I want to be playful and informal, yet confident and effective. I want to share my sunshine as well as shed light on some of the darkness it emerges from.
Other stuff that makes me, me:
I'm happiest when I'm dancing!
I do a gleeful wiggle when I eat delicious food
I'm a Starting Bloc fellow - a community of inclusive and inspiring individuals who want to make the world a better place
I love the word 'eudaimonia', which means human flourishing and links being happy with being fulfilled
I cry easily, and process my (many) feelings by journaling
Some of the values I hold dear are clarity, freedom, honesty and love
