Comments of participants :

(1) As a professional psychiatrist and mental health practitioner, I have always been interested in personal growth and human development. Before coming to this retreat, I had read several books on Indian spirituality and philosophy to understand Indian ethos and had tried to apply it to my profession. This retreat made me realize that to capture the vision of texts such as Bhagavad Gita in its entirety, live contact with teacher is essential. This is because the teacher is able to show you the context of each part and how it fits into the whole vision. Throughout the retreat, I experienced ahha movements as I got deep insights and sudden clarity about concepts I had read earlier but not fully comprehended.

Moreover, as a result of this retreat, I have recognized the manner in which Indian philosophy adds value to knowledge of modern psychology. This clarity will enable me to enrich my professional practice.

(2) I have had highly privileged life with big business and large family. I was still searching for something that would give deeper meaning to my life. This retreat has been a real blessing for me as it has put every part of my life in perspective and given me a much broader outlook to life. With this perspective, I can live my life with much deeper level of satisfaction.
