Bhrugu Aranya Ecovillage is an organic Homa farm community in the rolling hills of southern Poland, with the majestic Tatra Mountains looming over the horizon. This community has been growing since 1995. The place is magical; the energies here are quite powerful and the place heals you.
Here, we use Homa Organic Farming methods based on the ancient Vedic science of Agnihotra healing fire performed at sunrise and sunset. We are all vegetarians and grow most of our own food.
Creativity, spiritual development, music, arts, Mandalas, Sound healing, alternative education, herbs, and healing are our primary interests. Currently we are 12 adults, 4 children, cows, dogs, cats, ducks & frogs. We are an eclectic mix of artists, musicians, healers, authors, film-makers, gardeners, herbalists, therapists and teachers ranging in ages.
Our ecological/educational nonprofit Foundation teaches Agnihotra and Homa Therapy, offering talks and classes free of charge.
On the farm there is also the Deva shop with Agnihotra supplies, our own Deva Herb teas, healing tools, unique Moldavite & gemstone jewelry, Lingams, our Bhrugu Aranya Healing Essences and original designed clothing, yoga mats, handmade patchwork quilts. We also now make unique handmade cloth dolls.
We also support Rose Circles, a women's empowerment program in India which helps train women below the poverty level to grow organic foods and learn skills to help them become self-sufficient. We promote their handmade products in Europe. www.rosecircles.com
We welcome visitors and have simple, homey accommodation for guests in the log cabin and caravans. Best is if you have a sincere interest in spiritual and environmental living. Please email and/or call ahead to make arrangements, costs for stay. Must call in advance, please.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
