Dharana Wellness at Shillim

Dharana Wellness at Shillim

India, Indian Subcontinent

Shillim is located in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Western Ghats three and a half-hour away from Mumbai. The forest is at the heart of all that they do - a story that began over twenty years ago with the aim to conserve and sustain - the first two elements in their triad philosophy. The third element of their triad philosophy is Heal, as the family saw that there had to be a more empathetic, nature-based healing way to approach healthcare and wellness. Years have been spent to conceptualise Dharana Wellness which combines the most advanced Western diagnostics (body scanning, blood testing) with traditional age-old Eastern Ayurvedic practice. These are then applied to each of the five pillars of Dharana:

  • Preventive Medicine - combining modern and traditional methods
  • Exercise Physiology - body scanning, connective tissues, recovery time
  • Nutrition & Dietetics - gut health, gene testing, Dharana food philosophy
  • Conflict Resolution - relationships, stress, and emotional management
  • Spiritual Wellbeing - learning, connecting with nature, meditation, yoga

Shillim's guests go to resolve conflict, of which the primary sources are relationships, food, environment, sleep, and grief. They are encouraged to stay for at least five nights, with the maximum benefits experienced when taking a 14 or 21 day Ayurveda Panchakarma, the most ancient healing Ayurvedic treatment for detoxification that dates back 5000 years.
