At the end of the last century Anastasia, the heroine of the "Ringing Cedars of Russia" book series inspired people to create family homesteads in the form of Kin's domains which has turned out into national movement with more than 400 eco-communities of Kin's domains developing now in Russia. And there is where the story of Vedic Russia and family homesteads begins...
In Eco-tourism we take attentive and loving care of nature and people. In today's modern lifestyle a person spends much of their day staring at a screen while breathing in artificially conditioned air. It is now highly unusual for such a person to stay in nature long enough so he might actually feel the unconscious positive effects of breathing in fresh air instead of big city smog. It is now an entirely abnormal experience for a modern person to obtain food, not from a supermarket, but from a wild-growing bush or to drink milk right after milking a cow! For many people today a long walk may cause pain in one's feet and leg muscles because these muscles are now conditioned to pushing car pedals only. In addition many cannot walk barefoot for more than 5 minutes. It is also a real challenge for many people to withstand the sensation of standing under an ice-cold waterfall stream!
Every year eco-villages and eco-communities of Russian family homesteads (kin's domains) have different celebrations, folklore festivals and gathering. We call them gatherings of Vedic Russia, they revive true Russian spirit, Russian Vedic traditions, costumes and rituals from the old days...
Many folklore and historical sources tell us that about 5 to 10 thousand years ago there was a great Vedic civilization prospering and flourishing all over the Earth. Indian Vedas and places of power named dolmens are the greatest material and spiritual heritages left by this wonderful civilization. Thousands of dolmens scattered all over the world. They exist in Germany, France, Spain, England, Holland, Switzerland, Israel, Netherlands, India, and Korea, as well as in the South of Russia, Northern Caucasus.

Kin's domains (family homesteads) is a national idea of Russia.
At the end of the last century Anastasia, the heroine of the "Ringing Cedars of Russia" book series inspired people to create family homesteads in the form of Kin's domains which has turned out into national movement with more than 400 eco-communities of Kin's domains developing now in Russia.
A Kin's domain is a piece of land at least 1 hectare (2.5 acres) in size owned and developed by an individual or a family who prefer living their lives in nature, off the grid, to the hustle and bustle of city life. They provide a sustainable way of living which also helps improve the quality of our planet.
Greetings from Vedic Russia! I am Yury Smirnov, the organizer, guide and translator at Vedic Russia eco-ethno-tours. Leading spiritual groups to sacred places of Russia to facilitate evolutionary shifts. Went through the thorns and moments of enlightenment and self-realisation. Survived immigration, managed to come back to my mother-land, have two grown up sons living in Australia. Below you will find a brief description of my life path.
All my conscious life I was pondering questions like "Who am I on the Earth?", "What am I for?", "What is man's predestination?". I was grown up in atheistic traditions of the communist Soviet Union. But I have always felt that there must be something beyond materialistic world. So I began to learn the Bible and Koran trying to read behind the words. I was baptized in a Russian orthodox church when I was 23. Although I visited church sometimes and believed in God's existence I have never been a true Christian. I tried hard to find my own path...
