Short Profile

The Himalayan Rilung Foundation based in Himachal Pradesh, India was set up in 2022 to fulfil the dream of transforming the human world through a different way and kind of learning; one that dismantles and questions conventional education. Mountainwind is its core experiential and creative learning programme that combines heart, mind, hand and land skill learning to reconnect us to our forest roots. The Foundation also aims to strengthen Himalayan connections across all national boundaries.

Integral Model to Whole-Systems Change

Integral Model Kumusha


Facilitating a specially curated small scale global learning programme and community that focuses on inter-generational experiential skill learning with an ethical component and seeks to re-capture the spirit of ancient indigenous Himalayan systems of life-skill community learning in a current context. A multi-skill learning of mind, hand and land skills in a single Course structure that embodies and brings an understanding of our deep connect to Nature.


As we are still on the runaway, the impact to date is hard to pinpoint but the Community Youth Programme took off with our leadership camp in 2023, which did have a significant attendance and made inroads into initiating the local youth of our area. The Community Youth Club created thereafter, around the library and documentary film screenings has initiated discussions around social and ecological issues, which is the goal and meets on two Sundays a month .
