Vana is delighted to announce its second Young Vanavasi Retreat after the successful first one in June this year. This 7-night Retreat will be from August 12th – August 19th, 2018 and can also be attended for 5 nights, August 14th – August 19th. The retreat will continue to remain open for children below 16 years of age accompanied by adult family members.

Similar to our last Young Vanavasi Retreat, the days of this retreat will include elements of learning, sharing and fun based on Wisdom, Wellness, Creative Arts, Dance and Cuisine.

The itinerary will include pottery, gardening, dance lessons, painting and more, along with practical daily life skills, developing respect and gratitude for nature, understanding traditional wisdom and lifestyle guidance from Indian wisdom.
