We believe that everything contributes to one’s wellbeing. Architecture, nature, design, music, art, cuisine; simply being at Vana brings about a sense of well being.
It does take a day or two to discover Vana fully, even more to find its hidden nooks, which are best discovered unintentionally and at the right time. You will find places both inside and outdoors to sit and contemplate and to meditate. And others to meet Vanavasis and spend time together. Both time on your own and being with others is vital for one’s retreat. There are also spaces to read and a wonderful collection of books, comics and movies spread across more than one library. Music is an essential part of Vana’s life; you will enjoy many quiet performances and the occasional vibrant one during your time here. The flute is usually played as an offering to nature, regardless of whether anyone is present. Pujas or prayers are often held, for the health, wellbeing and prosperity of all, as well as to pay homage to our Gurus and Gods.
2017 was a year of many firsts for Vana; our first Short Retreat, our first Vana School and our first Vana Foundation Workshop were all curated and successfully completed this year.
