"This Immersion program has helped me adopt a healthy and whole lifestyle. It gives complete package of Indic as well as modern science approach of looking at sustainability."

Shubham Jain


"I began my 3 months long journey of “the self” with sustainability program. For me, it served as an amazing guided introduction to the Indian Knowledge systems and a conscious way of living. What we see in the outside world is just the manifestation of what transpires inside us. And both these aspects of sustainability were very well introduced in the program."
