Ppriyal Lokhandvwala, Founder of Gandant Global and ICF Certified International Coach and Trainer, shared her perspective on the evolving spiritual landscape, stating, “”It is only natural to seek guidance and assistance in the uncertain and confusing times that we live in. One is challenged by questions about their life and life choices, but is even more confused about who to ask and how to reach these guides. Through this festival we aimed at bridging the gap between the ones troubled by questions and the ones who can provide answers.”

“Our survey is a testament to the growing recognition of India’s profound spiritual heritage. It serves as a compass, guiding individuals and businesses towards a more conscious and enlightened future. The insights gathered are not just answers; they are the keys to unlocking a deeper understanding of ourselves and the universe we inhabit.”, she further added.

The survey affirms India’s enduring status as a global hub of consciousness and spirituality, with 60% of global and local tourism dedicated to spiritual exploration. The survey underscores that India has been the epicentre of spiritual wisdom for centuries. The corporate world is increasingly turning to spiritual resources and practices, marking a paradigm shift in leadership training and mindfulness retreats. Incorporating neuro-linguistic programming techniques, these practices are becoming integral to corporate well-being initiatives.

Survey Highlights: A Glimpse into India’s Spiritual Landscape

  • The survey affirms that India, rooted in centuries of spiritual wisdom, is poised to become the global epicentre of consciousness and spirituality. With 60% of global and local tourism dedicated to spiritual exploration, India’s allure transcends borders.
  • The corporate world is increasingly turning to resources and practices such as energy healing and mindfulness. Leadership training and mindfulness retreats now incorporate neuro-linguistic programming techniques, reflecting a growing acknowledgment of the benefits of spiritual practices.
  • Divination practices, from astrology to numerology, are deeply ingrained in Indian households. The industry presents immense potential, with traditional practices and Western divinations gaining popularity across the country.
  • The pandemic has accelerated the demand for energy healing and similar services. In times of uncertainty, individuals are focusing on larger life questions, leading to a surge in demand for services addressing existential concerns and stress management.

Assist in decoding the spiritual and mystical dimensions to provide positive directions and steer away from negative impacts to create a better future. The consciousness industry globally has been estimated at 214.34 million dollars which could easily be an underestimation. This industry across the world is highly unorganised and fragmented with multi-faceted practices, so putting a realistic number to it can be difficult. The biggest challenge that the industry faces is that of lack of trust and connecting with audience. Many people see it as just entertainment and many have inhibitions about approaching practitioners because of lack of trust. The aim of Gandant Global is to bridge the gap between the seekers – believers and the talented practitioners from various genres across the globe.
