About Us

TIFA was born out of moral imperative. The human species is in decline. We are at a turning point. The people on this page somehow or another have committed their life to evolving humanity, pioneering into the unknown. From our student body, hailing from nearly 40 countries, to our leading-by-example faculty, to TIFA's forefather: those who have left human form but whose work we are continuing. We pull from the disciplines of Natural Hygiene, Vedanta and a deep-seeded belief that human ingenuity is the medicine the earth needs.
