I whole heartedly recommend a visit to Satvik Sadan for anyone looking for a aptly named wellness holiday, yoga / Ayurveda therapy, a beautiful tranquil and spiritually restorative Himalayan holiday.; a yoga meditation retreat, self discovery and / or discovery of the ancient wisdom and knowledge systems at the root of Indo Vedic Hindu civilizations and traditions.
Everything at Satvik Sadan has been meticulously and thoughtfully designed to be conducive to one’s physical, mental, emotional, psychic and spiritual well being – from the sacred location to the food, the disciplines and routines that are observed faithfully, the natural beauty all around, the every need and convenience is taken care of, so that one can focus on the higher things in life and most of all the tremendous amount of energy, compassion and tapas/ spiritual power poured into the Satvik Sadan by Shukl’acharya and Samrita.
What distinguishes Satvik Sadan from many other places dedicated to Ayurveda / yoga healing is the tremendous amount of sattwa that is generated and flowing here, which makes Satvik Sadan especially conducive as a place for retreat and healing. It is really like a rishi ashram from the days of yore and in addition to everything else a gurukul where one can learn gems from the ancient knowledge and wisdom of the Himalayan Masters.
Whether one comes to Satvik Sadan for a few days, a few weeks, or even months, one will certainly derive great benefits in every dimension of life. It is a rare opportunity in this day and age to be able to visit such a place and I urge you to try it for yourself .
