Other Testimonials

   I had a really great experience at the retreat. I did not really know what the retreat was about before i attended, but people had only good things to say about it, so i decided just to go for it. The weekend was field with new experiences, and new ways to interact with myself and other people. I got a good connection with and between body, soul and mind, and the things i learned, i still practice for myself. I really learned the importance of expression myself, and i was showed different ways to do it. I'm still in contact with some of the people, from the retreat. Somehow, through all the expression, you share something important inside of you, and when you share this, people get to know you in a whole different way, that I’m used to. You really show the beauty of your inside, and this is so essential and important for us as human beings. We are finding our inner child inside, and letting it shine through all the layers of insecurity, and self-doubt we have been raised with. When you have first understood and experienced the strength you gain from this, you want to experience it again and again. Sing, dance, paint, laugh, cry..Create.. When we create, we get in contact with our feelings, and when we get in contact with our feelings, we live. No ego, no doubts, no nothing, only the pure feeling of creation, and the true happiness which is following. Enjoy, take care, and let the sun shine the way.

Body Mind Soul

   I'm, from delhi, i am a creative... I design jewelry ,am a budding writer and an artiste. I was on holiday in Pondicherry and got the retreat information from the Auroville store . Honestly decided to participate so i could get a clear introduction to Auroville. The dinner and drum circle on day one was a great way to introduce the participants to each other and made the whole lot of us comfortable and communication was easy between all. The next day began the body mind soul journey. The concept and the teachers were excellent at creating the flow between understanding and using the options of constant balance and focus of the mind..the atmosphere created by the various exercises brought out very interesting reads about hidden characters and creativity in me and the other participants . These were beautiful moments that unfolded amongst kindered souls...In totality the child within me was out in the class room and enjoyed every bit of the teachings and at times was cajoled back to join up activities as the mind wandered...As it was coming to an end the music lesson and the laughter activity put back all the energy used up in bonding body mind and soul....left me completely rejuvenated . I would recommend this retreat as a must do to my fellow city dwellers as its an experience out of the ordinary and a must do to calm down stress,anxiety and hyper activity that city living creates in people .This retreat leaves you feeling the world is a good place inspite of the craze humanity is suffering from due to being part of a rat race. Many thanks to Vikram and Amir and all the other teachers for making this experience memorable ,calming and rejuvenating and introducing like minded souls to each other who would never connect if it was not for this effort.

Body Mind Soul

   The Body Mind and Soul retreat is the perfect place to be at if you are looking to get away from the chaos of your routine. The retreat is an amazing way to discover the inner calmness in you and to let go of all the stress. I joined the retreat alone, not sure about what I was getting into. But now I am glad that I went ahead with it. The activities that we did through out the retreat were a great way to express what is within. They were well thought of and nothing that I had ever done before yet so simple that I practice some of them even after the retreat ended. The activities at first may seem a little out of your comfort zone to be doing in front of a group of strangers you just met. But the instructors are so helpful and considerate that you look forward to actively participate in each of the activities,which help you concentrate and develop a positive outlook towards life. And when you get out of your comfort zone is when the strangers you just met get into a strong bond with you, some which will last for a long time. I benefited a lot from the retreat and I would suggest everyone who gets a chance, to become a part of it to experience for themselves how a few days can bring out the best in them. I look forward to become a part of many more retreats.

   I really enjoyed the retreat. It was a surprise from my friend & going in I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised and had a great experience in all the workshop classes each being different & focusing on a different part of the mind body soul. The retreat taught me calmness, focus, attention, awareness, joy & most importantly laughter. Mind body soul was coordinated well- good job Vikram.
