During this holiday, you will stay at Twinkle Villa, 700 meters above the sea level and surrounded by green and reserved tree. It has officially opened in December 2016 and is located in Tanarimba, Jung Baik, Pune. The resort is surrounded by woods and very close to nature but very luxurious. It is a place where you can unwind and escape for a while the busy life of the city. However, the network signal is weak at the resort and there is no Wi-Fi.
It is designed to create an isolated space so that you can fully enjoy the grace of nature with your family or friends. You will wake up in the morning with the birds in music and the gurgling water sound, a life that you will not find in the city. The architecture is very primitive and modern. It has a large transparent floor and ceiling windows, with cement walls and red brick walls in the middle of nature, truly a unique place to be.
Twinkle Villa’s main purpose is to help modern people put down technology products and have a quality time with friends and family. The resort has different amenities that can make your relaxation even better. You can visit the art gallery and tea house or explore the hot springs and waterfalls. At night, you can gather around and savor the delicious barbecue.
There are three different types of accommodation, namely Chengal House, Gaharu House, and Meranti House. In this retreat, you will stay in Meranti House in triple sharing (one on floor mattress) with attached bathrooms including a shared kitchen and the common area.
This retreat is a perfect opportunity to rejuvenate, enjoy yoga, and learn about aromatherapy. You will be learning in depth and with safety about the therapeutic, aesthetic, and subtle aspects of essential oils using therapeutic base ingredients and aromatherapy. The five elements are a comprehensive template that organizes all natural phenomena into five master groups or patterns in nature.
Each of the five groups including wood, fire, earth, metal, and water include categories such as a season, a direction, climate, stage of growth and development, internal organ, body tissue, emotion, the aspect of the soul, taste, color, sound. The categories are seemingly limitless. The five elements reflect a deep understanding of natural law, the Universal order underlying all things in your world.
In Chinese medicine, the organs are not merely physical entities, they are functions. These functions reside throughout the body, not in one place. Just as the body overall needs these functions to maintain health, each cell also requires the same functions. You cannot say that just the body needs oxygen and needs to eliminate wastes. The function of respirations (via the lungs) and elimination (via the Kidneys) are pervasive: every part of the body needs to be fed, nourished, and its wastes are taken away.
The heart is called the 'King' of the organs. The Internal Medicine Classic states: 'The heart commands all of the organs and viscera, houses the spirit, and controls the emotions.' In Chinese, the word for 'heart' (hsin) is also used to denote 'mind'. When the heart is strong and steady, it controls the emotions; when it is weak and wavering, the emotions rebel and prey upon the heart-mind, which then loses its command over the body.
Physiologically, the heart controls the circulation and distribution of blood, and therefore all the other organs depend upon it for sustenance. Thoughts and emotions influence the function of various organs via pulse and blood pressure, which are controlled by the heart, where emotions arise. Internally, the heart is functionally associated with the thymus gland, which is located in the same cavity and forms a mainstay of the immune system.
Extreme emotions such as grief and anger have an immediate suppressive effect on the immune system by inhibiting thymus function, a phenomenon that has long been observed but little understood in Western medicine. Externally, the heart is related to the tongue, to which it is connected by the heart muscle. The color and texture of the tongue thus reflect the condition of the heart.
Speech impediments such as stuttering and mutism are often caused by dysfunction or imbalance in heart energy. Facial complexion, which is a direct reflection of blood circulation, is also a major external indicator of heart function. Fire energy makes the heart the dominant organ of summer, during which season the heart must increase circulation to the surface in order to dissipate excess body heat.
