Dhyanavana, which means in Sanskrit a “meditation-garden” or better “the context of God experience”, is aesthetically and artistically designed to offer a healthy atmosphere and conducive facilities for the spiritual formation and renewal programme. Since 1997, this institute has been conducting the long term diploma course of nine months and other Short-term courses throughout the year, attended so far by over 6000 religious men and women from India and abroad.

More than 35 courses are offered on various subjects by specialised professors throughout the year, such as Biblical Spirituality, Formation to Integral human maturity, Psycho-spiritual maturity and emotional healing, spiritual life in Theology, Sacraments, Prayer and Mysticism, Comparative Religious Spirituality and Theology of Religious life.

Presently there are 18 sisters for the residential course, and many more have registered and will be joining later. We have also begun the online classes for them.

Being the silver jubilee year, Dhyanavana is proud to inaugurate this academic year and impart spiritual and renewal programmes.
