Education and early life[edit]

Being closely associated with the Himalayas, his artistic and musical sensibilities as a dancer, musician, and psychologist have translated into every sphere of his life.[7] After finishing his schooling from Greenway Modern School, he did his bachelor of arts followed by master of arts in psychology from Ambedkar University Delhi.[7] The clinical training he received at Ambedkar University Delhi led him to expand his clinical thinking.[8] He did his diploma in community mental health from NIMHANS. He taught psychology as an Adjunct Faculty of Psychology at Ambedkar University Delhi prior to which he worked as a Junior Project Fellow at the Department of Educational Psychology and Foundations of Education at the National Council of Educational Research and Training. The psychodynamic training that he received during his master of arts resulted in him getting introduced to analytical psychology through which he developed the idea of the sonic collective unconscious by extending the idea of archetypes given by Carl Jung to sounds.[9] As he belongs to the Garhwal Himalayas, he has done various ethnographic research on deity possession and procession of local mountain goddesses.[10][7][11]
