A search for wellbeing, learning and the inner journey are at the heart of Vana. Even if that means going against the current.
We have endeavoured to bring together the traditions of wellness, medicine and Indian wisdom with creative thought, deep commitment and personalised support. Ayurveda, Sowa Rigpa and Yoga have been thoughtfully integrated, yet rooted in their individual authenticity.
Nourishing cuisine, experiences for all the senses and a kind hearted team complete the offering that is Vana. And all this exists in spaces that are our homage to nature and the sublime.
Vana believes that it is only by aspiring to achieve our best spiritual, emotional, physical and intellectual self, we can live life wholesomely. With the recurring demands and stress placed on us by the consensus driven, constantly changing world, our wellbeing requires continuous attention, care and effort. Vana provides many personal paths to address this necessity. Our wellbeing is also influenced by our environment, relationships and society. Indian Wisdom expounds that a spiritual journey is only possible when we understand our inextricable interdependence with everything.
We are focussed on our home and source of inspiration, Vana in Dehradun, India. Our aspiration is to make Vana a singular institution in the world and a place from where many positive activities spring forth. We will become more inclusive and find unique ways to become relevant to young people too. Learning, teaching, music, creating, exchanging ideas and deeper spiritual practice shall steadily become a greater part of life at Vana.
We offer our prayers to nature and the great teachers that impart wisdom, seeking their support and blessings, for the strength and ability, to serve and benefit all beings.
