Is the retreat strict? What are your rules?
Yes, but not in a scary sort of a way…in the sense that we do have rules that we expect our guests to abide by. We’d like everyone to understand that we are not a holiday destination; we are a health and spiritual destination that offers a holiday like stress free environment. Depending on your specific condition, you are given a diet chart & schedules to follow; also we don’t allow consumption of non-veg, alcohol, or any prohibited substance within the premise.
Although Vishwa is wi-fi enabled, our guests aren’t allowed internet access throughout the day. Likewise use of mobile phones, TV etc is restricted. During your stay our aim is to encourage you to connect with the quiet within yourself and experience freedom from emotional clutter.
