Ecology & Spirituality Program
Welcome to Divinya’s unique program Ecology & Spirituality – The path of the sustainable Yogi offering profound learning opportunities for transformative life changes. This program is designed to bring a deeper understanding of life, key answers to the quest of a sustainable future for all and an understanding of how to practically take part in the shift in consciousness towards a new, ecological and divine era. The 1-year program offers a diverse range of transformative education in the fields of inner growth, eco-spirituality, horticulture, permaculture, ecological building, yoga, meditation, sacred music, natural health, eco-psychology, transformative cosmology, and more.
The path of the Sustainable Yogi
The Ecology & Spirituality course goes way beyond learning practical skills. This one-year residential program translates the timeless wisdom of Yoga into daily life expressions – reaching inner and outer harmony and to grow spiritually through Karma Yoga, Raja Yoga, Jnana Yoga and Bhakti Yoga. The beautiful blend of discipline, freedom, dedication and daily spiritual practices within the yogic lifestyle in Divinya, offers you the opportunity to gain clarity of life and its purpose.
The Divinya community is a group of highly motivated, active and dedicated visionaries, who explore a non-religious and non-dogmatic eco-spiritual way of living – exploring the life of the cosmic human on this planet. Participants are fully integrated in all the community engagements during their time in Divinya.
As an aspirant you will be engaged in the serene gardens, building projects and permaculture landscapes alongside like-minded spiritual seekers, experiencing the transformational togetherness in the unique environment. It is a valuable opportunity of learning through living, of understanding through experiencing and of growing through participating.

When you come to the Ecology & Spirituality program, you are coming into a group of people who actively take part in creating the world they want to live in. That was such an inspiring and meaningful experience for me. It changed my perception of life completely. I finally understand that my spiritual practice is my way of living itself, the way I participate, the way I take care and share with others. It is not just about practicing yoga or meditation half an hour every day; it is all about how I live and how I relate with others. Through the ecology & spirituality program I gained such a clarity on how I want to live my life and I am immensely grateful for it.Read LessSerena

I have learned so much about myself and how people can create together. To learn about ecological building in Divinya means not only to learn how to build a sustainable building, but it is all about building a sustainable human relationship; to learn how to create an experience that is ecological in itself. Our intentions and the way we work together must be harmonious, otherwise it cannot be called 'ecological'. I came to understand: To create a more sustainable world outside, we first have to learn to become more sustainable within ourselves.Read LessKarl

The reason why I came for this program is to have an encounter with myself. The Teachings here are touching very profound topics - it is very personalized. Usually we are reading books after book, attending workshops and courses, but we never apply anything in our life. Here you are invited to put your wisdom into practice, to apply it. Here I get in touch with myself, Mother Earth and Nature in a totally new way.Read LessPablo
