    Description

    We are an off grid, ecofriendly, self-sustainable, health retreat located in the village of Amoni which is an hour away from the city of Bhopal. Our eco-stay is a place for self-healing amidst nature where we conduct workshops related to health and lifestyle renewal. The main principal with which we abide by is natural healing as a way of living where the forest air, water and earth play an important role in health rejuvenation.
    Our lifestyle is simple, with basic food cooked with local and seasonal growth. We are in the process of growing our own food using natural farming methods and are open to new forms of experimenting in this area. Becoming self-sufficient with the food we produce is the goal.
    The retreat is located in the forest with farmland close by and a lot of areas to be explored or wild vegetation growing for consumption. The season visitors here are all kinds of wildlife from wild boars to wild cats to reptiles and various species of extra-ordinary birds.
    We like having enough time to spare on bonding with our guests here and appreciating what nature provides us with. The place is currently run by three of us humans and our guardian cat Muttlo and her two kittens.

    Our place is ideal for bird watching and watching time slow down as nature takes over. Watch the entire trail of the sun as it rises and sets, changing the hues of the sky as it does.
