Throughout history, women have been portrayed as the virgin, dutiful daughter, pure wife, sacrificing mother or as harpies, seducers or whores.

We have been turned into stories that influence and limit who we are, what we can have, and what we can be. This information seeps into our lives through film and theatre, through print and song. It shows up in the boardroom, in policies, on our streets, and at the dinner table. It is inside our mind and is reflected in how we see ourselves.

“While Divya’s natural ability to connect with every individual at a deep level is abundantly evident, there are a few things that make her truly exceptional —

She’s an outstanding listener. While this may sound simple, very few have the ability to make someone feel understood purely by the way one listens to someone with genuine intention to understand. That is powerful. She can empower just by listening.

Her ability to piece together holistic wellness for individuals by connecting the dots through her extensive knowledge of alternative medicine, meditation and dietary disciplines ensures the most effective approach tailored for every unique individual. She filters through to the correct choices for an individual consistently with great results.

She has an outstandingly creative mind. The power of her imagination in setting out clear visions and articulating them in no uncertain terms is second to none. Be it the Summit for Women, workshops or theatre, her concepts, scripts and content always deliver practical impact and give individuals actionable ideas to change their own lives.”
