Feeding children of the local school or orphanage.
You can pick vegetables from out organic garden, cut them and with help from our team of chefs, prepare a nutritious Indian meal for the children of the local school or orphanage. If you have any skills you would like to teach these eager minds, please let us know and we will be glad to make the necessary arrangements.
Shreyas will provide you with samplings and the opportunity to plant them in the surrounding villages, helping us give back to the environment that supports us.
Specific contributions. Many of our guests feel the need to contribute in a more practical way and Shreyas will advice you and ensure that these contributions reach the needy people. From books, stationery supplies, uniforms, contributions to building boundary walls, rain-water harvesting projects or digging wells – the possibilities are numerous – and the warm appreciation of the villagers, profoundly touching.
Communing with nature.
You will get an opportunity to volunteer in our 3 acre organic vegetable and herb gardens and give a little back to Nature – a humble thanks for the abundance she provides us, season after season. Try your skills at watering, weeding, sowing, picking and rediscover the forgotten pleasure in getting your hands (and feet!) dirty.
In return for your generosity, our staff and the locals are more than honored to teach you a little about our culture and traditions.
Of course, a stay at Shreyas is incomplete without the activities that quintessentially define Shreyas – the Yoga classes in our open air Yoga pavilion, meditation exercises, sound meditation sessions, rejuvenating massages and refreshing scrubs, gourmet organic vegetarian meals and time and space to discover yourself.
