At Ritam, one of our core values is collaborating with Nature, absorbing its energetical properties to enhance all of our activities and offerings. A grounding energy envelopes you throughout Ritam’s forested site, from the vistas seen along the walking paths, to the intimacy of the Mystical Forest with its secluded meditation spots, the majesty of the Forest Circle and the refreshing burbling of the Waterfalls. Unique meditation spots have been thoughtfully placed in each setting throughout the site. All beckon our Guests as alternate destinations to experience peace and stillness, while inviting renewal. Serene encounters, spatial beauty, and dynamic silences await.

Thoughtful and purposeful design has gone into the construction of all aspects of the facilities and grounds of Ritam, to foster the intention of each space and to ease your transformation.

Although we have designed and built special and unique rooms and venues at Ritam for our various offerings, each of our spaces also lends itself for other special activities which our Guests may desire, utilizing the particular energies of each space, thus providing our Guests with different and unique experiences.

Meditation Room

 Surrounded by an evergreen forest, Ritam’s Meditation Room is an architecturally stunning, expansive structure, whose floor-to-ceiling windows bring the forest atmosphere inside.
