Sonia’s journey with filmmaking conceptualized in 2002, when she was founding Touching Lives. Even as a young mind, she began to ask existential questions of how her work can continue after she ascends from this planet, how it can still touch lives – the voice within directed towards the art of storytelling through books and films.
As a child, she was always fascinated with animation and immortality. Thus, the seed was laid then and she eventually had begun to write for short films and later directed, produced and scripted for her own organization. Later, when she finally had a strong foundation of Touching Lives built and a team to run the work, she decided to dive into Filmmaking and to formed Touching Lives Films.
In 2013, Sonia began to consult as a Story coach as well as Scriptwriting Consultant and reader. In 2014, she assisted a renowned Brazilian Filmmaker Marcos Negrao as an Assistant Film Director and Producer for Indian Film. In 2018, she completed her Summer School with Prague Film School and directed her short - SPACE which won several awards and accolades and went on to release in Micheal Moore

Sonia is known for her intuitive abilities. Her out-of-body and near death experiences in childhood made her realize that there is more to the physical reality. There is a meta-physical world which is invisible, yet present and felt. Exposed to meditation and inner work practices since her childhood, she always had a voice inside her that gave her insight that this is her last life. That this life is a return gift to her from the universe and thus, she decided to do her self-work continuously so that she can merge with the raw energy. She always defines her life is ‘akarmic.’ She is also writing an autobiography with the same name.
She supports her client’s not just as a client but as a fellow soul traveler on this earth and empowers them with tools and practices that they can independently do their self-work. She uses eclectic, pluralistic psychotherapy and alternative healing methods and her approach is very much client-centered and holistic. Her sessions are intuitive and creative that allows the client to be able to receive healing and cognitive support with life-long impact. Her methods are deep, intense, intuitive, leading to transformation in birth and ancestral imprints. Sonia conducts multifarious workshops and initiation processes. She conducts workshops globally for individuals, group, organizations, corporates etc.
