Sattvik Excursions around and in Shivpuri:
Akkalkot is a very well known pilgrimage town for a number of great saints. Most famous of all is Akkalkot Swami who lived there. The temple where he lived and his various places are all very beautifully charged with the presence of this Saint of India. Shivpuri itself was home to Shri who is the father of reviving Agnihotra and the Soma Yagya tradition in recent times. Shri can be read about on www.agnihotraindia.com.
Akkalkot in itself is a charming and tradtional town.
ABOUT THE CLINIC:
The clinic is in memory of the father of Shri who was a great natural healer and promoter of Ayurveda. Presently it is managed by the grandson of Shree and has a few BAMS doctors present.
The ambience is very still and rural. In summer it is hot as there is little tree cover but the air and surroundings are good.
Nothing noticable. All farming at Shivpuri is organic so no spraying of chemicals nearby.

FOOD CONSCIOSNESS RANKING:
Traditional local diet adapted for Panchakarma.
DRINKING WATER QUALITY:
Some people get sick from the water at the ashram.
We would suggest installation of a RO water filter and water dynamization system. It is not good to have questionable water during cleansing treatments.
Rooms are basic but comforable. The block has been newly built and is simply outfitted.
Hot water is available on request from a traditional wood burning system.
The hospital is accross the road from the ashram near the cow shed. It is nice to have treatments listening to the beloved cows sing their Moo's.
