Residential Holistic Education program for co-learners ages 5 – 16
for the overall nourishment of the Spriit, Mind & Body of children and younger teenagers.
Through ‘Srijan Niketan’ we strive to maintain a suitable environment for the balanced development of a child’s spirit, mind and body. Led by mentors, seasoned through the great churn of our human condition via their diverse experiences with meditation, alternative education, and general life in the ‘world’ within a variety of societies, all educational and social programs for the children in our care (24 hours a day, approximately 335 days a year), are geared towards providing a well balanced mix of nurturing guardianship and guidance with fostering the independence and self-awareness needed to begin to guide oneself.
