There is also a range of comfortable accommodations very close for those requiring long term treatment, studies, or a therapeutic retreat.
Atma Dharmindra is a healer, writer, astrologer, painter, and rajayogayukta with over 20 years teaching experience. After completing his studies in Visual Art at the Istituto d'Arte di Catania, Sicily he has traveled the world learning and synthesizing the core archetypes of spirituality in a scientific, practical and progressive way. He has studied directly in the Haisndayin Apache tribe, with the Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa (Yogi Bhajan), Dr. Vasant Lad, Tenshin Zenki Reb Anderson, K.L.Mantri, as well in the Soto Zen monastery established by Shunryo Suzuki Roshi, and the original school founded by George Ivanovich Gurdjieff.

Mantriji, who taught many remarkable methods for interpreting the Absolute in today's world, primarily through Shastra.
Atma has taught throughout Canada, USA, Israel, and Japan, and is best known for his knack of interpreting astrological phenomena and is preeminent in the field of Trividya Chikitsa, particularly where Astrology, Ayurveda, and Yoga converge. This being the obvious result of Atma`s primary influences being Yogi Bhajan, responsible for exporting Kundalini Yoga, then the Mahan Tantric`s Ayurvedic Mentor and Physician Dr. Vasant Lad responsible for firmly planting the seeds of Ayurveda in the West, followed by Krishan Mantri, who ignited Jyotish outside of India.
In 2009 Atma`s mentor advised he move to the Far East to assist the people to reimport the Vedic and Tantric Sciences. In 2012 Atma established Shesha Vedic Sciences for this very purpose, and in 2013 opened The Healing Space in Naha, Okinawa, where he taught and consulted daily. In 2015, Atma edited the research and composed astrological charts for the book “Astronomical Dating of the Mahabharata War” by Dieter Koch.
