Dr. Pandeya has been affiliated with the prestigious Hindi Sahitya Sammelan university of Allahabad India conducting the only Indian authenticated degree courses in Ayurveda available in North America before focusing his energies solely on the training and teaching of Kayakalpa.

His interest in issues affecting humankind as a whole has also taken the form of documentary films. In 1989 he produced and directed “The Myth of the Kumbha Mela” an epic celebrating India’s largest spiritual gathering and featuring some of its greatest monks and mystics. In 1995 he made “Investigating Immortality”, an award-winning documentary on Kayakalpa.

In 2002 Dr. Pandeya created an ancient Kayakalpa trigarbha “womblike” rejuvenation cottage, in the classical manner described in ancient medical texts, at Siddhashram, the Foundation’s retreat at Salt Spring Island on Canada’s west coast.
Dr. Raam Pandeya currently resides at his retreat located in the pristine Valley of The Moon in Glen Ellen California, with his wife Sophia Pandeya and their son, Kabir Pandeya.
