Chetna Mehta

Chetna is a folk mixed media artist and mental wellness mystic. She seeks to consistently expand her awareness of self and the systems we live in. She is passionate about using our innate powers of reflection, expression and connection to improve our lives and psycho-spiritual health.

Her background is in social sciences, human resources, fashion/commercial modeling, international teaching, and healing modalities like expressive arts, talk therapy, vipassana meditation and Reiki.

Chetna recently completed a MA in counseling psychology from The Wright Institute and has worked with adolescents in school-based settings as well as adults in intimate group settings. She is working to create more spaces for exploratory healing with creativity and community. She is based in the Bay Area, CA where she leads other creative healing workshops and is super excited to bring facilitation to the city of New York.


Nandita Batheja

Nandita is a writer, educator, movement-maverick and deeply curious human being. 

She currently serves as editor, educator and manager of Caring for the children’s wear social enterprise art & eden while teaching independently and organizing community gatherings for collective creativity, healing and discovery. She is honored to be one of six facilitants for the YES! Arts for Social Change Jam–a space that continually restores her faith in love’s ability to transform the wounds we carry from the environmental, racial, economic, political, gender and sexual (and every other kind of) violence that abounds in our world. Nandita also co-leads InterPlay sessions in NYC--her favorite way to connect, play, dance, share stories and be in stillness.

Nandita is deeply invested in the ways that art, healing, belonging, justice, body-liberation and innovation intersect. Rumi is her guide and human flaws are her teachers.
