The Homa Therapy Foundation is based at 'Bhrugu Aranya', an international ecological Homa farm and community, situated in the Beskida Mountain region overlooking the majestic Tatra Mountains. The atmosphere of this place is infused with high vibrations from Ayurvedic healing fires that are performed here daily. It is this energy that radiates to heal the Earth. We invite you to experience transformation in a peaceful, creative, healing environment.
Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya is a blossoming Ecovillage community. But it is not just that. Our Ecovillage is an energetic hub combining ancient Vedic science, spiritual ecology, Homa organic farming, intentional community and Ahimsa (nonviolent) codes of practice.
Workshops, seminars, and classes held here will have the incredible advantage of Homa Organic Farming and Agnihotra teachings. They will also have the added bonus of being in an atmosphere that has been charged with Homa Fires, sunrise and sunset Agnihotra since 1995. We also perform 24-hour Yajnyas every Full and New Moon as well as five hours of Yajnya per day.
This is a sacred place, powered by the ancient Vedic science of Agnihotra. Therefore, it is important that we honor specific practices, one of which concerns menstruation.

Menstruation and Subtle Energy
According to ancient knowledge, when a woman has her period, the "circuitry" of the subtle body is broken. Therefore, the woman's subtle energy is in an altered state at that time.
If a woman in menstruation goes near healing fires, there is an effect on the process of healing the atmosphere and this should be avoided. This is the science of subtle energies…..Agnihotra is such a science, a science of Bioenergy as given in the Vedas. Science is governed by laws and not by anyone's changing opinions.
Menstruation and Ayurveda
Ayurveda confirms the need for rest and meditation at the time of one’s cycle.
Ayurveda states that women are releasing toxins every month through menstruation.
So, in the context of the body releasing toxins, it makes sense to avoid cooking, giving people massages, gardening, and participating in yajnyas.
How does this practice affect women participating in workshops conducted at Bhrugu Aranya?
We recommend that women who know ahead of time with certainty that they will have their period during the course of a seminar, do not plan to come.
However, if a woman unexpectedly gets her period while here, we can accommodate her nearby and she will be able to continue any workshop she is signed up for.
