News about the school

We are happy to be able to give some news on the evolution of the school EIVS for the coming years. There is often misinformation circulating about the health of Atreya and about the school itself. Therefore we are happy to announce that there is no intention to close the school or modify the programs in the coming years.

The founders of the school, Girija and Atreya, have retried or are retiring. However, we have found someone to take over the administration of the school for the next years. This will allow Atreya to focus on finishing a few of the trainings that he has been working on over the last 3 years. He will still teach the online trainings in English and it will also allow him to teach a limited number of weekends in Sion, Switzerland for the Swiss Federal diploma. The degenerative problems that Atreya suffers from are still present and problematic, but manageable with a minimum work load. Note that Atreya no longer responds to emails or other communications. See here for more information on that issue.

The online programs will not change as they are complete already, however Atreya will continue to give live lessons in all levels taught by the school. Note that there are 4 years of recorded Q&A lessons lasting 8 hours for each lesson, at all levels of study. There are very few questions that Atreya hasn’t answered over the years, but he will continue to give live Q&A lessons for any new questions. The English programs are back online and available for the 2024-2025 school year.
