Sumedha, is a centre for renewal of body, mind and spirit through insights and practices from psychology and spiritual traditions. It is located in the rejuvenating lush green Kumaon foothills of the Himalayas, 18 km south of the tourist town of Nainital. In Sanskrit, Sumedha refers to a healthy brain that controls entire body-mind systems, as well as to rejuvenation of body and mind.  Sumedha Centre is a venture of the Salesians of Don Bosco. 
This is an inner journey in quest of greater healing and wholeness. Participants begin from where they are, looking at what is happening on their psychospiritual journey. They then move on to explore the psychological dynamics that affect their wellbeing, get in touch with their emotional and spiritual blocks and brokenness and seek healing so that they can live and minister in more joyful, satisfying and fruitful ways.
