What is Atmanna?

Atmanna is the name of my home in Bulgaria, a peaceful place where i am more and more able to relax in nature and remember my true self. i also sometimes invite volunteers to help me create a permaculture, growing organic food, and to help renovate the house and barn.

In the future (or possibly even now for those who enjoy rustic living) i may also invite guests for holistic living retreats, to learn and practice meditation, Hatha & Kundalini Yoga, and to learn about holistic health. In a nutshell i am sharing many ways i have learned which have helped me to be a more relaxed, more content, better person.

Atmanna is a quite large plot of land (2900 m2) set in the foothills of the beautiful Bulgarian mountains very close to the border with Macedonia. There is a house (currently under renovation) and a barn, which in the future i will likely convert partly to a guest house.

You can see some more pictures (including the outdoor rocket stove, compost toilet, composting bins and fire circle) and a couple of videos of the house and land, and read more about how Atmanna has developed since i bought the property in August 2019 here: Atmanna Healing Haven

You can also view many more pictures both before and after work was done at this google photos album

If you would like to come to volunteer (or more accurately come for a work exchange as i provide food and accomodation) at Atmanna, please take a look at my volunteer profiles on HelpXWorkaway or Voluntouring. I am inviting volunteers with experience in gardening and construction.

If you would like to come as a guest for a retreat, please write from my Contact Form and i can let you know if and when it might be possible. Further down this page you can read some of the testimonials i have received from volunteers / guests.

Where did the name Atmanna come from?

When i was in India in 2017 and was considering a name for a blend of powders which I made for my green smoothies and for fasting support, the word Atmanna came to me.

As my name (as chosen for me, based on tantric numerology, by Nirinjan Kuar of the 3HO Kundalini Yoga organisation) is Atma, and Manna means food, or divine nourishment, and the domain atmanna.com was available, i bought it, and also decided to name my new home Atmanna a couple of years later.

Below are some definitions i found online.

Atma - is a Sanskrit word that is equated to inner self or soul. It is described in the Bhagavad Gita as being unborn, eternal, omnipresent, constant, and immovable. In Hindu philosophy, especially in the Vedanta school of Hinduism, Atman is the first principle, the true self of an individual beyond identification with phenomena, the essence of an individual. In order to attain liberation, a human being must acquire self-knowledge, which is to realize that one's true self is identical with the transcendent self Brahman.

Manna - Spiritual nourishment of divine origin

Atma + Manna =


Divine nourishment for Mind, Body and Soul

Here are a couple of pictures of my Atmanna Green Smoothie and Fasting Support Blend.
