One of the great systems of thought and practice that India has produced is the ancient healing system of Ayurveda. Along with Yoga, Ayurveda represents an exhaustive internally consistent logic and understanding of the science of life. Ayurveda, or Ayur Vidya, means the knowledge of life.
India is a land of magnificent diversity, a place where archaic structures, concepts and traditions rub shoulders with up-to-the-minute formations, where variety and extremity stride hand in hand. No country any less richly textured could have given birth, thousands of years ago, to Ayurveda, and no other country could have prompted the sometimes bewildering multiplicity of principles and practices that have sprouted from Ayurveda’s roots. — Robert Svoboda
At Raga Svara, our goal is to manifest this understanding and ancient wisdom into lived experience of modern humans. Ayurvedic rejuvenation — bodily, mental, emotional and spiritual — forms a core element of Raga Approach, called the Therapeutic Well-being. Raga Approach also entails Existential Well-being and Aesthetic Well-being.
Raga Svara opens in Spring of 2020. We are an institution unlike any other. It is difficult to place us neatly in any category. To put it in familiar categories, Raga sits between a wellness retreat, an ashram, an ayurveda centre, a learning institution and a cultural centre. To know more, visit www.theraga.org
