We are grateful to many of our Vanavasis for spreading the good word about Vana. Thanks to this network, we get many daily inquiries from people all over the world who are keen to come and experience a retreat. One of the main reasons we are unable to welcome many of them is time: busy schedules are often mismatched with our structure. This reality has pushed us to re-think our minimum night stay and the various needs of people who look to come on a retreat.

Taking this practical aspect into account, and our larger mission of becoming more inclusive as time goes on, we have decided to create an ‘Introduction to Vana,’ retreat under our Vana Ashram category. This retreat will allow Vanavasis to come for three nights – instead of our usual five — and simply, get their feet wet.

Despite this being a short time, we have crafted this program so that Vanavasis can achieve what is possible in this duration: rest, relaxation, and an introduction to a possibility of self-transformation, which remains the ethos of our retreat.

With this, we hope to welcome more people to Vana. We remain committed to offering the best experience within our abilities.

The Vana Introduction is priced at INR 90,000 for a single guest, and INR 1,35,000 for two guests sharing a room and is available for July and August, 2019.
