Centre of Light
Centre of Light ~Help us build a global centre for spiritual ecology
Homa Therapy Foundation, a non-profit organisation, is building an environmental, educational healing centre – Centre of Light. It is being built on the grounds of our Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya, where education is given about how to create a sustainable future for our planet through direct action.
We envision Centre of Light manifesting into a place where healing, organic farming and creative expression through arts and music will find their venue. And the influx of others of like mind and heart will inspire, uplift and unify all who come.
- Learning ancient Ayurvedic techniques to bring nature back to balance and heal the atmosphere
- Practicing Yoga and meditation
- Practicing creative arts to heal mind body spirit
- Learning about how to form and live in small communities
- Using folk medicine, wild and organically grown herbs for healing and wellness
- Implementing green architecture and building with sustainable materials
- Organic food growing, organic beekeeping and sustainable agriculture
- Organic vegetarian cooking for wellness and rejuvenation
Over the years, we have been able to educate and share our collective skills and environmental healing methods with literally thousands of people. Now has come the time for major expansion in order to accommodate the increasing numbers who wish to learn and experience life at our Ecovillage.
Through our continued practice of ancient Ayurvedic science over the past 20 years, we provide the living proof that we can offer workable solutions which help correct, heal, nourish, and restore balance to whole eco-systems.
So far we have completed the first phase of the building, which include foundations and basement. Now we are crowdfunding the next stage of this amazing project. We need to raise a total of $108,000 USD.
Once this next phase is finished, we will be able to offer clay building workshops, invite volunteers to learn and work with sustainable building techniques, and help complete the structure of our Centre.
Any additional funds raised will go into the next phases of building.

From the humble beginnings of two people (Jarek and Parvati) Bhrugu Aranya has grown into a wonderful healing oasis. In the beginning, there was only an old log cabin without electricity and running water, and a dilapidated barn inside a magical ancient looking apple orchard. There was barely a road leading up the mountain to the secluded location overlooking the valley below.
Today, Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya is a thriving community of 14 adults and 4 children, a hoard of happy animals including cows, cats, ducks, dogs, horses, bees. We are dedicated to the practice of non-violence by treating our animals with love and respect, being vegetarian, and teaching future generations about living harmoniously with nature.
We grow an abundance of organic veggies and fruits which we share amongst ourselves and preserve for the winter months.
We offer free teachings on Homa Therapy & Homa organic farming all year round.
Celebrating Helen’s 91st birthday!
What we’ve done already
- Building Project Documentation and Permission:
- Excavation work
- Foundations and Basement
- Foundations – form and concrete work
- Basement walls and floor slabs – ongoing
What we need to do to complete the next stage of building
- Skeletal Structure
- Roof Construction
- Roof Tiles
- Drain and Water Pipes
If we can manage to raise the funds, we can complete the structure and the roof so we can start our workshops on building straw, wood chip and clay walls. These walls will incorporate all natural materials, and be a great opportunity for many people to learn practical skills in this ecological building technique.
