Details of the Fellowship

Why this fellowship?

200+ people have stayed at Sehatvan reversing their lifestyle and chronic diseases, building habits and attitudes towards a healthier lifestyle using “forest therapy”. Within 10-15 days, participants improved their biological age between 2 to 10 years.

Many stayed for more than what they planned for - to either work further on their own health and/or deepen their understanding of health and nutrition taking it forward. The benefits of the therapy countering accelerated ageing and early onset of diseases motivates younger participants to continue working on themselves.

Sehatvan has so far been an experimentation and is already at the forefront of disease-reversal and anti-aging research. To further deepen our research and take the idea of Sehatvan far and wide we are hereby inviting people to apply to our fellowship program.

We are launching “Sehatvan’s Fellowship in Wellness” for individuals looking forward to connect to their body and natural environment, and having an active interest in bringing their learnings to more.

Who Should Participate?

If you are looking forward to shaping the rapidly growing wellness sector or leading a medicine-free long and healthy life, you should apply. If you are already working in health, wellness or nutrition and wish to work further on yourself and your understanding then Sehatvan would be a great fit to your health as well as career.

This program is suited for professionals as well as non-professionals and there is no educational prerequisite. Ideally a participant should be between 15th to 30th year of his/her biological age, however, this is negotiable for highly keen individuals.

You will be provided with a certificate of participation at the end of each phase of the fellowship. You can choose to attend a part of the fellowship instead of the entire fellowship based on the interest and availability.

Duration & Induction

DURATION: Imbibing the spirit of Sehatvan and mastering the skills may take anywhere from 1 month to 9 months depending upon one’s background, learning speed and the desired levels of expertise.

INDUCTION: Subsequent to the orientation program those found having the appropriate acumen and minimum competencies shall be offered the fellowship. The prospective fellows shall be expected to join at their earliest convenient date not extending beyond one month of the orientation.

What are the Major Components?
Fellowship focuses on three major aspects but is designed to accommodate varied interests.
  1. Swastha : We start with our own health - not in isolation but in conjunction. We connect with our body, mind and the environment that we are a part of, assisted by the natural living spaces provided by Sehatvan.
  2. Sansara : While continuing to work on our health, we delve deeper to understand health and nutrition, enabling us to work with people for the next three months. Sehatvan with its visiting health seekers, provide a robust environment for observation and learning the techniques that can lead to healthier beings.
  3. Swadharma : This phase is to narrow down our focus and work in-depth on a problem that our heart reaches out for. Emotional health, child nutrition, reversing biological age, etc. or any other area that touches you, we work together and build a prototype inching closer to your personal vision.
How will I learn?

Sehatvan with its natural living spaces, visiting health seekers and “forest therapy” developed on the principles of Community, Nature & Autophagy (CNA) will serve as the major pillar of the learning. Course is being held under the supervision of Dr. Vipin Gupta who will individually spend time with each and every participant on their learning through personal and group conversations.

There will be no examinations, however all the candidates are required to maintain a rigor ensuring learning of the entire group.

Additionally, the participants will be helped to substantiate their learnings through various online resources such as Stanford’s Introduction to Food and Health, Yale’s Vital Signs: Understanding What the Body is Telling, Edinburgh’s Understanding Obesity, Copenhagen’s Diabetes - a Global Challenge to name a few.

Apart from health and nutrition, participants shall be encouraged to allocate their 1/3rd learning hours towards art, music, dance, psychology and other humanities.

Meet the Expert

Dr Vipin Gupta is co-founder and managing editor of research publishing company Inventi Journals (P) Ltd. Between 1991 and 2014 he severed pharmaceutical academics and industry in India, Europe and America mostly inventing new medicinal products for various companies/ institutions including Himalaya, Banner Pharmacaps and Auburn University. During this tenure he established a Center of Relevance and Excellence under Ministry of Science & Technology (GoI); filed 20 patents and published/ presented over hundred research papers; and 6 doctoral scholars were awarded PhD degrees under his guidance. In 2011 he served as a resource for the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences on building academia-industry partnership framework for ICSU (United Nations).

He is still engaged in health research/ academics, rather more aggressively, although with a different outlook. Through his co-founded healing space Sehatvan he is researching body’s self-recovery mechanisms with respect to reversing diseases and aging process, and thereby, resetting the body in healthier states/ times. He does believe that over 90% of the current usage of medicines and surgery could be made redundant by fine-tuning body’s self-recovery functionality. More about his current work could be found at www.inventi.in and www.sehatvan.in
