  • I visited Sadhana Forest for two weeks in August and have absolutely loved my stay here. No matter if you’re here as a long term volunteer, coming for a guided tour or simply coming for a meal, everyone is made to feel welcome. The community spirit here really is beautiful and I have been astounded by how every person, no matter if you’ve been here a few years or a few minutes, is treated and valued equally. People can come anytime and are free to join in with a seva, a tour or a meal. People from all walks of life visit here so there is always someone to relate and talk to. I have loved talking to all these new people and sharing in such a unique experience. I would definitely recommend visiting this lovely place for the friendly people, great food and communal feel.
  • Sadhana Forest is an open community based on compassion towards each other and towards nature. By staying there you are able to participate to the reforestation project and to live a vegan and zero waste lifestyle which is a way to contribute to the environment's sustainability. It's also an amazing place to meet beautobea people from all over the world, an experience you can never forget !
