Training Programmes

SHARAN has conducted two sets of training programmes in the past. The first one was in Mumbai in 2011 and was open to all the people associated with SHARAN who were trying to spread the vegan message in various ways. At that time the number of participants was quite small. Every participant was given a chance to present so that they could learn from each other. The second training programme was held in Auroville in 2012. It was divided into three streams—Doctors, Lifestyle Advisors and Cooking Instructors. Each stream underwent a three day programme that culminated in a sightseeing tour. All participants took healthy cooking classes because it is an integral part of a healthy plant based diet.

Why does SHARAN offer a training programme?

Our goal is to make teaching plant based nutrition commercially viable for all professionals who would like to do so. Our training programme therefore includes a diversity of modules that are suited to individual requirements and skills.

Who can attend the training programmes?

Training programmes are only for people who have attended at least one SHARAN seminar, are practicing, have seen the benefits themselves and actively want to and are committed to sharing their experience in a commercially viable way. At the end of the training programme, each participant will get a certificate and if suitable will have the option of becoming a SHARAN expert. The benefits of this will be shared.

Information about the forthcoming training programmes is periodically sent out by mail to everyone on our mailing list. To receive this notification in time, please subscribe to our newsletter or send an email to
