    Sankalpa benefits the people in it that want to get drug free and want to move on with their lives. Sankalpa helps people to get drugfree by giving them support in many different ways eg. councelling, Nutrition and Holistic therapies. Sankalpa helps people to get back to education.

    Traditionally in Hindu religion before performing any work we undertake sankalpa which is a kind of declaration to ourselves and to the God within us. The Vedas says that the whole Universe is evolved through a Sankalpa of Lord SriManNarayana.

    Sankalpa is a Sanskrit word meaning a resolution, free will or determination. The word sankalpa itself means good intention, an oath or a resolution to do something, a solemn pledge to do something good. In Sanskrit ‘San’ means good and ‘Kalpa’ means a Shastra, or a Veda. Sankalpa means proposing to do something good in a Vedic or a Shastric way. In any religious ceremony/ritual generally we observe a person takes a sankalpa (a firm resolve) to achieve the purpose of the ceremony. Sankalpa literally means taking a firm decision to accomplish one particular thing in spite of facing troubles in its achievement.

    Sankalpa cannot come all of a sudden. It is conception of a deep routed strong desire formed in the inner heart of hearts that gets manifested. All Yagnas and worships are accomplished after taking a vow for its performance. Sankalpa is nothing but the expression of the feeling which the Saadhaka (doer) has for the accomplishment of a Saadhana (task). By making a pledge a person becomes committed towards the accomplishment of his goal. Taking an oath means becoming committed to something

    Im currently a participant of Sankalpa and really enjoy being there. It's great structure for me to get up and go there every morning. I really enjoy the groups that are I'm involved in there, very informative. It's great to have a keyworker helping me out through my recovery. i enjoy the holistice side of the programme, I've gotten Rekie, acupuncture and massage. These holistice therapies help a lot when your detoxing and drug-free. I've gotten some fetac certifiicates in maths and computers, I'm currently working on my ceramics Fetac Cert.

    I am currently attending a Community Addictions Studies Course and hope to get a Fetac 5 certificate in that. I would like to go onto college one day. I hope to work in an area helping people through addiction.

    I would like to stay drug-free and get an education and a good job. Sankalpa can help me with this. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

    Coming into a place like Sankalpa from outside, and having been in other rehabilitation facilities, I think the place is a lovely space to be in - it always smells nice and has a very calm atmosphere! I like the way you do ceramics and I'd love to sit in on a class sometime. The meditation also seems like a really good idea. This is just from an outsider's perspective! Very Happy
