The Surya Project
Our intention is to find and create a space of light and love, hopefully in India. This was somewhere Craig loved and felt home in, and we'd like to provide somewhere here that people could spend some time and feel the same. A place to share Craig’s powerful ideals and passions with the world. An inspiring and creative environment, for people to explore and enrich their physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
At the centre of this space would be a yoga shala, offering yoga classes, courses and a variety of holistic therapies. We’re thinking to provide yurts, camping space - accommodation of some sort ; Eventually open a permaculture kitchen/cafe and a creative shop; and build and sustain a vibrant community space where we could host everything from live music to inspirational talks.
We’d also like to incorporate other aspects of Craig’s love of life: his sense of adventure and passion for the arts. Working with the local community will be a focus, so we could offer guided tours and treks in the Himalayas, and provide a bike rental service for the more adventurous. We will build a skatepark. As well as an art and photography gallery, we’d hope to provide studio space for visitors to use and host a variety of creative workshops. Central to the photography gallery would, of course, be Craig’s own powerful work.
Ultimately the Surya project is a labour of love, and would hopefully bear testament to the profound impact Craig had on the many people blessed to know him. We’d appreciate any help in making this dream a reality.
Love & Light
