Rasa Ayurveda Traditional Healing Centre for Women has arrived at an important moment, and we’d like to ask for your participation to meet this moment successfully, while embracing a great opportunity to care for yourself, too.
Some months ago, we advanced a deposit toward the purchase of a house – ‘River House’ – across the lane from the current clinic we rent in Thittamangalam. The house is set above the Karamana River in a quiet area set back from the lane. If you’ve been to Rasa Ayurveda, you may remember the house, with a long driveway, and a large stuffed plush dog usually sitting outside the front door.
When we were presented with this opportunity, we were grateful, as we know the right next step is to stabilize the location of Rasa Ayurveda. Until now, Rasa Ayurveda has occupied the main clinic building and annex by rental arrangement. Leasing is not practiced or enforceable in Kerala, and so, Rasa Ayurveda has no security in our current location. (The kind of building required for a residential clinic is somewhat specific and not easy to find and rent.) River House will serve well as an annex or as a main clinic building if the need arises.)
Rasa Ayurveda literally arose out of the positive relationships cultivated on the outskirts of Trivandrum for years before opening the clinic. These relationships and local goodwill are an enormous and necessary resource for the friendly and secure reception of our all-female international patient population and for our staff. The completed purchase of the River House will allow us to maintain these essential ties, and also to plant our collection of over 130 medicinal perennials, shrubs and trees now in temporary clay pots. Allowed to root into the earth in a permanent place, the plants will thrive, and so will Rasa Ayurveda. With ownership, we will also be able to officially participate in community issues, and do our best to positively influence decision-making that affects the natural environment and community in our area.
The bottom line? The funding we expected has fallen through, and we now have just 30 days to come up with $90,000 or lose our deposit and the opportunity to provide a stable future for Rasa Ayurveda.
We know raising this money is a very tall order, and it comes at a time when we all agree: all resources should be used wisely. The best investments are those that bring benefit in all directions, aren’t they? With this in mind, we’ve come up with these special ‘one-time only’ offers to inspire your positive action. We hope you feel inspired…!
