I am an award-winning and best-selling author of 12 books. Voted “One of the Most Influential Asians of Our Times” and winner of the “Voices of the Year” award (past recipients include Chelsea Clinton), I write at the intersection of culture, wellness, and women’s empowerment. My work has been published in The New York Times and other publications across nine countries on three continents. I am hired to write essays, articles, and stories on how to create a more balanced life. Be it the role of culture on wellness, or the impact of mindfulness on our day-to-day well-being, I bring an unapologetic voice to these publications.


“There are very few people in this world who truly embody their truth—Sweta is one of them. A life that leads by example, a poet, a yogi, and a true believer in the power of the human soul.”
~ MONICA BHIDE, One of Mashable’s top 10 food writers on Twitter

“Sweta your words on mindfulness, gut and brain connection, words we can stand by 3 hours or 5 years later, were so helpful as I think about my practice.”

“I wrote things I never could have written without the loving guidance of Sweta. I feel very blessed to have worked with her and hope to do so again.”

“During her writing workshops at the Panchgani writers retreat using her special blend of yoga and Ayurveda, Sweta taught me how to nourish myself mentally, spiritually and physically to get the best out of my writing. We started each day with yoga setting our intentions which made me feel very grounded and focused, This truly enabled me to write things I didn’t even know were in me. I feel very grateful to have met Sweta and very much hope to meet her again.”

“Few writers use their unique gift to heal, empower, and advocate as Sweta Vikram has. Sweta’s award-winning writing—always daring, smart, and compassionate—directs us to look where we wouldn’t normally.”
~ JUSTEN AHREN, Director Noepe Center, Author of A Strange Catechism

“Thank you so much, Sweta, for such a beautiful emotional and creative journey. You took us into the depths of vulnerability and helped us breathe through it, and I’m feeling so energized to write and create from that place of calm introspection now. Much more to learn, but thank you for your nuggets of wisdom!”

“The Writers’ Retreat was much more beautiful and value-adding than I anticipated. The setting was perfect for writing and Sweta’s daily sessions helped trigger a lot of thoughts and ideas. The unexpected bonus was in the yoga and Ayurveda experience… while I knew that we need to balance our physical, mental, emotional dimensions, the way to do it through food in simple ways was a new learning.”

“I have worked closely with Sweta on editing my poems. She is a well regarded and published author who is a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her.”
