Conscious, sustainable lifestyle

Anasuya Life, discover abundance in an Artisansal community by going back to the roots

Philosophy

The time to 'be artisanal' is now. And the place is Anasuya.

As the world moves towards more conscious living, it becomes apparent that there are two facets to this shift. This consciousness encompasses the external – ecological footprint, and the impact one can have on the environment, and the internal – eating natural, healthier lifestyles and finding a place to feel grounded.

BEING ARTISANAL, is a beautiful URGE to DISCOVER deeper purpose of one’s life. It is the craving of the heart, the mystery of one’s uniqueness, the bonding of the soul with nature.

Effects that last a lifetime. Relationships that thrive together.  A beautiful Community.

Factors for a sustainable lifestyle

LIVING

Shelter
Natural buildings with aesthetic & comfortable architecture taking into account the natural light and the flow of wind. The water is recycled 100% in the best way possible for vegetation around the cottages.

The stays are an experience into the agrarian way of life where nature blends into every aspect of living.​

Health
Physical fitness – A farm lifestyle gives one the pleasure of walks amidst nature. The birds chirping in the morning sunlight does make you walk the extra mile, naturally.

Mental wellness – An aspect quite neglected but deeply felt by everyone has it’s own healing in a farm environment. Coupled with some pranayama and Qi gong as a group, takes away the negative energies and brings in positivity every morning.

FARMING

Collaborative Farming in Agriculture & Dairy - Food is the single most essential commodity along with water and at Anasuya Eco-Habitat, great care is taken to produce it using natural methodologies. The food forest at Cheyyur is an attempt to mimic and create a natural ecosystem, which over time will require less work and at the same time give yields, attract fauna and become a self-sustaining forest of various foods.

Health – ‘Local, healthy, nutritious meals’ from locally sourced organic food. Need we say more!

COMMUNITY

Education - Numerous studies show children spending time learning about nature creates ‘attention restoration’ or the rejuvenation of the brain from cognitive and sensory overloads. This actually improves the child’s learning and reduces the stress levels.

A child develops more physical health, more attentiveness, confidence and exuberance.

As children learn more about nature, they also pass on the advantage by increasing their parents’ level of concern about the environment and climate change, inspiring ‘green behaviour’.

Social Impact – Anasuya is a platform to create rural solo/entrepreneurs.

To identify and manage business impacts, both positive and negative, on people by:

Contributing in ways to improve the lives of the people we affect, such as by creating decent jobs, goods and services that help meet basic needs thus creating more inclusive value chains. Partnering with other businesses, pooling strengths to make a greater positive impact & support social sustainability.

 

Our Philosophy

The time to be artisanal is now. And the place is Anasuya.

As the world moves towards more conscious living, it becomes apparent that there are  two facets to this shift. This consciousness encompasses the external – ecological footprint, and the impact one can have on the environment, and the internal – eating natural, healthier lifestyles and finding a place to feel grounded. The signs point in one direction. Anasuya. A haven of tranquility and balanced living at Cheyyur, on the shores of the Bay of Bengal.

The long and short of it

You can take two paths to the bliss that is Anasuya. Live the complete Anasuya experience as a part of the like-minded community – close to nature, with mostly locally grown food and simple pleasures that will take you to a higher plane of existence. 

The short of it

For those who do not have the time to go the whole distance, but still would like to experience the bliss, you can opt for short-term stays, a few days at a time, where you let the worries and weariness of modern life steep away and you emerge refreshed, ready to take on the ordinary again.

Anasuya Food Forest

Anasuya Food Forest is a 70 acre ecologically sensitive farm that is home to 1200 native trees, migratory and local birds, insects and bees, wild grass and snakes, 11 thatched huts and 3 geese.

Just off the scenic ECR and close to the Odiyur lake, is Anasuya Eco-Habitat. Home to a variety of native & migratory birds, with suitable soil that has been maintained free of all chemicals.

The area is one of the most fertile regions on the ECR, close to Chennai.

A good place to begin would be – what NOT to expect

People – We don’t have people who will check your bags as you enter, smile and carry your bags, assist you to living quarters and answer the phone when you call for hot water, shampoo or a cup of tea/coffee. Please bring whatever you may need for the duration of your stay. We don’t encourage use of chemicals as it disturbs the ecological balance of the farm, any natural, organic products can be used. 

Running Water – You will need to collect water from the nearest pond for you use. (No, we are kidding :). We have it stored close to water usage areas.)

Electricity – The huts have 1 – 5amp plug point for you to use and 1 – light bulb that is solar powered. So no TV, fan, AC, hair dryer etc.

Room Service – If you will be having meals with us, please inform us well in advance as it will be freshly prepared for you and will take time, as it’s prepared from scratch. 

What to expect ?

Fresh Air and water 

Miles of open land with no habitation in sight

Sounds that you cannot hear in the city 

Brilliant night sky full of stars

The best sleep you can ever get

An occasional startled fox
