The course has been informative and very interesting. The modules allow for reflection on each and every topic. The participatory nature of the course has helped to grasp the knowledge. Experiential learning has been a major area that I want to explore. With much better calibration of senses I want to understand the reverberations and enhance the spirit of spaces. This program has helped me understand the basics of a topic which I had been looking forward to learning for several years.
Thank you Sashi ma'am for the wonderful sessions. An eyeopener is an understatement. They have actually shifted my learning lens to a new plane...never knew the simplicity & science of our shAstras. It was a humbling experience.
The learning I have gained from this program is that the alignment of self with space and not just the built form is important. I plan to practise this to establish a connection with my home and farm and to improve the energies of both these spaces and myself.
My journey and experience in Vastu Introductory Course : A path to Harmonious Living was an absolute delight. It is exactly what aspiring vastu shastra artists must do to start the delightful journey in Vastu!! Wonderfully structured, simple and easy to understand allowing the student to embark on an open and expansive learning process. The durations of each module and the entire course allowed for great concentration and interaction.
It has empowered me to further my formal study of the art form with more vigor and zest.Ritambhara is an institute that holds the classic signature to expound knowledge systems of traditional Indian Architecture & Vastu Shastras. To learn vastu one must seek an original master - Sashikala Ananth is a true master of this knowledge system.
The content and design of the Introductory course on vAstu is very much suitable for those with no experience or formal education of Architecture. It helped unlearn a few of the misnomers I had, and filled me up with a sacred experience. It's like reading the sacred texts written for any novice to grasp the concepts beautifully! This would be THE introductory course for anyone seeking to begin or unlearn their "received or googled knowledge" of vAstu :).
I was fortunate to attend the vAstu Introductory course, facilitated by Sashi Ananth and Co-hosted by Chandana of Ritambhara. It was an unique experience as the common fear-based approach was completely missing and it made us feel at home and at ease approaching the subject. The process of sharing the course material on a daily basis over three days and getting us to take baby steps into a vast ocean like vAstu made it comfortable for me to get hold of something new. The video recordings in which Sashi Ananth explains the topics in detail gives better insight into the subject. The interactive session on the 4th day was an opportunity to discuss our learnings with the rest of the group and gain from the insights of the team. I am looking forward to the Level 1 course on vAstu through Ritambhara. I thank Ritambhara, Sashi Ananth and Chandana for this experience. I would surely recommend those aspiring to learn vAstu from a genuine and renowned expert to take their first step by registering for the next possible introductory course.
