Comments of participants :

‘I want to thank you because this retreat has been very important for me. I have particularly benefited from the clarity with which Neema is able to unfold the vision of Vedanta which is so subtle in nature. Her method of exposition helps us not to get into any kind of pitfalls or misinterpretations. There is a lot of grace required to find someone who has the vision so clearly understood.

Throughout the retreat, both of you emphasized that the important part of human growth is to bring understanding of one's relationship to the total (Isvara) in form of the order. As a result, one big thing that has happened is that I feel that now when I come back I will really be able to bring this teaching at work in my daily life. Before this retreat, I used to attend classes by some other teachers, but I did not understand how this teaching can be relevant in my daily life. This new understanding will make a big difference. And I am very grateful to you for that.’

‘Neema requested me to teach Yoga during French and English retreats as I am a Yoga therapist at Stanford University Hospital in California. I had never studied Vedanta with a teacher before, but I used to read some articles on philosophy and had a lot of difficulties with the idea of a creator. I listened to the Vedanta classes with an open mind and I thoroughly enjoyed them. This is the opening of a new path and I am very interested to build more bridges between Yoga and Vedanta. As a Yoga teacher, I was so amazed to see the participants' enthusiasm and interest in learning Yoga, and interest in incorporating Yoga practices in their life style. As a teacher, you just then give everything. I loved the ashram very much, the south Indian food, the whole atmosphere and people. Thank you very much. I am very happy that we could be together for this retreat.’

levels of objectivity we are speaking about?
