“Play. Engage deeply. Express truly. Share joy. Connect positively!”

Nikhil is passionate about creating socio-emotionally-safe environments for people to deeply engage with each other, bond with each other, and learn effectively. He loves doing so through the Play for Peace process, which helps build a sense of community through laughter and joy. His own journey in understanding safety and making learning exciting began when he pursued the DEEP course (Diploma in Experiential Education & Practice) in 2014. His work as a Play for Peace and experiential learning facilitator with different NGOs, learning environments, and organizations in India has enabled him to keep learning – about himself, and about different aspects of ‘play’ and ‘peace’.

Nikhil believes that it is his calling to protect and enable childhoods. He is highly interested in enabling children to develop ‘socio-emotional’ skills (life skills). He also finds happiness in accompanying adults in regaining the joy, ‘aliveness’ and positive connections that play brings with it!
