Sri Lanka

Supun's garden of 47 plants :
The children are growing medicinal plants in their own gardens to be used in Ayurvedic medicines in the UK.

The first phase of this project is now underway - beginning the gardens. Some plants can also be grown to provide food for their own families and to earn an additional income .

Empahat's medicinal garden:
Your support is literally transforming the lives of these children and their families. It means everything to them.
Dr Deepika and Geoff will visit these families during their annual holiday in April to donate more provisions. If you would like to donate for vouchers for shoes, uniforms, school bags etc please get in touch with us.
We want to give you an update on how amazingly the children in Sri Lanka are doing with the help of your donations. Thanks to your generosity, scholarships have now been provided for 42 underprivileged children which is supporting their education in schools and universities.

New garden project! 
To extend the support so that it can benefit them long term we initiated a project which involves Ayurveda and we hope can provide both work and income for them. 

Upeksha's medicinal garden:
One of the students who thanks to your scholarships graduated from uni with a degree in agriculture - has been able to advise and help them do this.

In such a short space of time, these young children and their families have already done an amazing job growing many herbs. The enthusiasm and commitment with which they have undertaken this project has really warmed our hearts.
Dr Deepika and Geoff have pledged to give a prize to the student who creates the best garden - a new computer to help them with their education!

Gabriella Burnel 
Gabriella is a scholar of the ancient language of Sanskrit and music . She has dedicated her life to these disciplines and their capacity to heal. Having studied Sanskrit from the age of 4 years old and read Sanskrit at Oxford, she is a modern day master.
Sanskrit Sound Therapy
In the modern age, more than ever, disorders that appear in the physical body originate from psychological factors. Despite advances in our connectivity online, our capacity to nurture true connection and self expression has reduced. Our one to one communication breaks down and more of us experience feelings of isolation. Without the opportunity to express ourselves in the right way, we cannot release the very energy that is accumulating and causing the physical imbalance. Emotion itself manifests as energy in the heart chakra.

One extraordinary way to release this energy is to use Sanskrit sounds to create a vibration that allows the release of tension deeply embedded at a cellular level in the body. Sanskrit is the pure language, the sound of creation. It is the extension of natural sound vibration in the universe. Using Sanskrit sounds, suppressed emotions that are beyond articulation and which suppress the throat chakra can be released.
Sanskrit sound is counselling beyond words. It has a deep impact on emotions which can be released through singing, chanting, laughing, crying or indeed any response that emerges as a result of the vibration.
Sanskrit sound therapy can help with many conditions from hypo & hyper thyroidism, goitre, throat cancer, depression, anxiety as well as many conditions who’s origin is emotional or psychological and balance the corresponding chakra including fertility issues, digestive issues, skin disorders and many chronic disorders.
A short consultation at the beginning of the session allows Gabriella to identify the imbalance in the constitution (dosha) and its manifestation in physical or psychological disorder. The whole session is then individually tailored to address your specific needs. Gabriella works with sensitivity and compassion to hold a sacred space for each person. 

Sound therapy sessions last 1 hour or 30 minutes 
Sessions take place on Wednesdays & Thursdays @ AIUK
