    Welcome to our project focused on holistic healing in the Himalayas, where we focus on--- Mind, Movement, and Mountain (3M). While we're still in the early stages of development, we're excited to offer you a unique experience at our Forest Retreat House nestled in a serene eco-village, surrounded by lush green forests.

    As a graduate of the Master of Arts in Movement, Mind, and Ecology program at Schumacher College, UK, and with a second Master's in Wildlife Ecology from INN, Evenstad, Norway, I bring a deep understanding of nature's healing powers. Now, I am working as Assistant Professor in Agriculture and Forestry University near Chitwan National Park.So, I normally visit the center in Weekend. My wife, a business graduate and certified natural mindfulness guide, will be your host, providing insights into our project and ensuring your comfort during your stay. She is also now involved in Deepshika Community library. So, we co-create specific eco-somatic tasks and Vedic Agro-forestry based tasks such as gardening.

    While we're in the process of developing our holistic Ayurvedic healing center, we currently have minimal fieldwork. However, we warmly welcome workawayers to join us in our small eco-village home, offering a retreat-like experience where you can reconnect with nature, recharge your spirits, and immerse yourself in rural livelihood.

    During your stay, you'll have the opportunity to engage virtually, sharing ideas and co-creating activities with your enthusiasm in a green parcel of land in holistic land.

    Embrace the simplicity of rural life as you explore the surrounding forests, rivers, and experience the authentic sights and sounds of Nepali community living.

    Join us in our endeavor to make the Himalayas a hub for travel, healing and regenerative holistic health. Your visit to our university and sharing of your travel experiences will further enrich our journey towards these goals.
