Humans have always been striving for happiness, and grossly failing in it. It’s an existential question - why does this quest exist? and why do we so much fail in it? At Moodforest while we are attempting to solve the riddle, we are also offering the leads as solution.

What is Sehatvan?\n
\n
Sehatvan is the seed project behind Moodforest. It is focused on running forest fasting programs to support people in boosting their fitness and reversing many of the lifestyle related disorders.\n
\n
In 2016, I co-founded a health space ‘Sehatvan’ with my health-scientist father. We derived its name by combining an Urdu word ‘sehat’ meaning health with ‘van’, a hindi word meaning ‘forest’. Over the last few years, living and experimenting in this space, we realized community living, wilderness and fasting have profound effects on health restoration. Our approach is guided by the Hindi word for healthy - ‘swasth’. Swasth is formed by combining two separate words ‘swa + sthit’, which mean ‘being situated in oneself’. Hence, the emotional dimension of well being/fitness has been an important element in health restoration at Sehatvan. And it is from this understanding, that I developed a deeper interest in psychology that led to my pursuing a bachelor’s and master’s in this field\n
\n
By now, Sehatvan is a reasonably well appreciated phenomenon. Its YouTube channel and Facebook and Instagram pages have decent followings and ratings with some of the videos having received millions of views. We have also been able to attract mainstream media attention: India’s national broadcaster ‘Doordarshan’ featured Sehatvan in its documentary India’s Healing Forests; country’s leading Hindi daily Dainik Bhaskar published a story on this, and English daily The Times of India covered it on 2021’s International Day of Forests.\n
In Feb 2020, I was invited by the Ministry of Health, Government of India to share my views of Forest Therapy with the medical fraternity at National Aarogya Fair 2020.\n

A brief about Co-founder\n
\n
Madhur Anand,
\n
In his own words:\n
My unconventional path has led me to this juncture with a deep purpose: catalysing scalable nature-based health solutions. For the past six years, I have lived in mud houses in a central Indian forest. Working closely with my father, an erstwhile drug discovery scientist, we have been deeply engaged in 'Sehatvan' (Hindi for Healing Forest), a project aimed at enhancing the body's innate self-repair mechanisms through innovative approaches like wilderness immersion, green workouts, community interactions, and autophagic fasting.\n
\n
During COVID, my focus shifted towards emotional well-being. It led me to pursue a master's degree in clinical psychology and to establish the 'Moodforest' project, inspired from ecopsychology. Notably, in collaboration with Prof. Overbeek from University of Amsterdam, I conducted the 'Green Mind Study'. The outcomes showcase substantial enhancements in emotional well-being and cognitive self-regulation.\n
\n
Moodforest is registered for Social Research with the Indian Government and has presented in conferences in Luxembourg, South Africa and Norway. It is currently hosting Research Masters internships with University of Amsterdam and building more internship opportunities.\n
