Fasting, with its profound ability to reverse diseases and combat biological aging, is deeply rooted in ancient practices. Yet its relevance is undeniably modern as the2016 Nobel in Medicine was conferred to a Japanese scientist for his work on autophagy.

Fasts must always be supervised and carried-out in a pristine environment and in a community setting. Doing it in a consumeristic-city-setup isn’t a good idea as cities themselves are full of toxicities and toxic competitions. 

Forest Fasting is a kind of a brief reversal from ‘consumption and city’ the elements that put biological system in an accelerated deterioration mode. Forest is as opposite to City as is Fasting  to Consumption.

What is Forest Fasting?

What is Forest Fasting?

Fasting, with its profound ability to reverse diseases and combat biological aging, is deeply rooted in ancient practices. Yet its relevance is undeniably modern as the2016 Nobel in Medicine was conferred to a Japanese scientist for his work on autophagy.

Fasts must always be supervised and carried-out in a pristine environment and in a community setting. Doing it in a consumeristic-city-setup isn’t a good idea as cities themselves are full of toxicities and toxic competitions. 

Forest Fasting is a kind of a brief reversal from ‘consumption and city’ the elements that put biological system in an accelerated deterioration mode. Forest is as opposite to City as is Fasting  to Consumption.

  • Human connection, connection with the nature and elements, green workouts, forest hiking, and dietary and fasting experimentations are the approaches to achieve the objectives. Day structure is loosely held so as to allow each participant groove into one’s own rhythm.

  • Each participant is given a fillable daily diary to record various observations; and they are supposed to have a one-on-one check with the facilitator every day.  

  • We consider sleep being one of the most vital elements for repair and rejuvenation; and hence, recommend people going to sleep by 9 pm and waking-up when they could without needing to put an alarm. Participants are also encouraged to take a brief nap during the day.     

  • Breakfast happens at 9 am, lunch at 1 pm and dinner at 7:30 pm. Meal timings do change subjecting to individual needs and the weather.  

  • We recommend participants going for sun bathing for a few minutes to an hour once or twice a day. Ideal sun-bathing timing ranges between 10 am and 4 pm; however, it subjects to the weather. We have spaces where participants can go fully naked and sun bath.

  • We have a mud pool for mud bathing as well as for swimming. The pond goes dry during April to June and in that period a different mud bathing arrangement is made. The frequency of mud bathing depends upon individual goals; however, swimming could be opted at pleasure.    

  • Participants are supposed to go on a guided forest walk on most days. Walks usually happens early in the morning or in the afternoons depending upon the season and the weather and may last for an hour to several hours.   

  • Technical sessions are organized on daily basis either in the forest itself during the walk or at around 4 pm inside the campus. The sessions impart deep knowledge around the forefronts of boosting the health and happiness, and also around reversing the diseases and the biological age.  

  • Each participant is supposed to take part in community works such as cooking, cleaning and farming. Those unwell, or on fast, are not required discharging any community task.   

  • Depending upon the availability of time community gathers in circle for playing non-competitive games and for sharing, arts, music and dance etc.

It has been kept most naturalistic in the design and materials, both. Also, we live here in a non-hierarchical community, not distinguishing people on the basis of their paying or other capacities or preferences. 

We have various staying options – private rooms, shared rooms, dorm, verandas and tents; however, we do not distinguish these spaces for their pricing. Pricing for all spaces is same and you can book accommodation of your choice, which shall be kept reserved for you. Also, you can choose or change the accommodation on arrival, and whenever you feel, depending upon the availability and without any extra cost.

We have both western and Indian flush toilets with water tap. The toilets have a bucket flush system. We also have separate bathroom for bathing.

Toilets

Sehatvan has a community kitchen. It has a common fridge and the space is accessible for everyone.

Kitchen

It is possible to sleep outside also on wooden beds or in tents. We have tents available with us; however, it’s a good idea carrying your own sleeping bag or at least the liner.

Participants are expected to bring their own towels, bedsheets are provided; however, users are requested to wash them while leaving.

We encourage use of mud or mild soap for washing purposes.
