Raga Svara is a place where people come to heal, to seek peace and health. To live more closely with nature. To appreciate aesthetics and to immerse in a shared life. People come to Raga Svara to just BE. There are four primary elements of the Raga Svara Approach: Therapeutic Wellbeing, Philosophical Wellbeing, Aesthetic Wellbeing and Ecological Wellbeing.
We are building a place where we can pause and fight disease. The core element of our approach is to provide therapeutic relief to the malaise of the body and mind. Ancient Indian wisdom and therapeutic practices of Ayurveda and Yoga are fully realised within our “home”. Co-existence of traditional approaches and modern systems is not only possible but essential to move towards a broader conception of health and wellness
While we keep on gaining pace, playing catch up, and running ahead, we lose our existential foothold. In the constant flux that we are thrown into we can’t find our sense of being, our sense of wholeness. We seek slowness, we seek togetherness, we seek balance. We seek peace.
Humans cannot gain foothold through scientific understanding alone. We need “symbols”, that is works of art which represent "life-situations". It is one of the basic needs of human experience, to see life situations as meaningful. We discover and even create the worlds we live in through our interaction with symbols such as paintings, sculptures, music and dance. .
To be in sync with oneself is to understand and experience nature around us. We must understand that our wellbeing is deeply affected by the wellbeing of our ecology. We must stop thinking of nature as resource and think of it as our habitat. At Raga Svara we are taking steps to ensure the wellbeing of our ecology: from clean energy (at our biogas facility) to organic farming (which provides fresh produce at our campus). We realise that the health of the ecology is the health of its inhabitants.
