WELCOME TO PUNARNAVA!
Some years ago a small group of Ayurveda doctors decided to live and practice 'authentic Ayurveda'.
When the idea took shape, they realized that being authentic also means everything should be as natural as possible. A chemical-free environment, growing their own foods and herbs and making their own medicines so they were assured of the quality of the medicines. And of course avoid using plastic.
A vision and a whole eco-movement was born and it is still an ongoing process. We want to share our organisation, initiatives and activities with you and invite you to participate. We realized that we need the support of a bigger group of people and so we founded the Punarnava Healing Community, a non-profit organisation thus your financial contribution is tax-deductable.
We look forward to the global community supporting the local community to support the global community.
I return home with new eyes and ears, now focussed on right action and on my practice and service. This is a very special place and I am so grateful to those who get me here and those who welcomed and served me here and especially shared their open hearts with me.
The time to be happy is now and the place to be happy is here, and the way to be happy is to make others happy and we will have a little heaven down here. Many thanks and heart blessings to the land, spirits, and sentient beings that gracefully ushered us into rebirth.

Environment as Medicine - by Dr. Claudia Welch
I suppose that, at any given time, there are always at least a few places on this planet that manage to manifest lofty ideals in practical ways that inspire and transform whoever participates. In my estimation, Vaidyagrama, an Ayurvedic eco-village that provides education and Ayurvedic treatments about an hour outside of Coimbatore, South India, is one such place for this century.

Thanks to you. With a very warm heart and sharp mind, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the exceptional care you have given to me. I came here knowing almost nothing about you. But I feel much wiser, healthier and so much happier.
