This retreat has given me the opportunity to reflect on my purpose of life and how I am live up to it. It helped me to prepare for the challenges that may come in near future. I realized that the life is easy, it is we only who make it complicated for ourselves. Life is beautiful.

I realized that the purpose of life is always a function of others because by doing so, we remain open to the world, we become creative and keep the gate open for help/ guidance from others. I also learnt the way to manage my fears within. Also to have a perspective of death helps one to be mindful of one's actions and priorities.

I realized that time and emotions are temporary yet the most important to be kept in check. Because if not kept in check, they might create illusions of possible and impossible realities to be attained. Joy is the essence of life. But the amount of life will be enriched only while moving closer towards the purpose through powerful silence, perseverance and wisdom.

I realized that meditation helps calming the mind, it is a practice I will continue. I have learnt that I have to face my fears, not run away from them. I also realized that acceptance is liberation, understanding that whatever is, is meant to be.

I realized that there are no positive or negative outcomes, just outcomes. I just need to remove the emotion associated with it and I shall find the next steps.

I realized that the heart is simple. It's the mind the mischievous one, that complicates it all. Yet mind needs to be handled with care and gentleness, not too strictly. The problem begins when we give ourselves too much importance. When we shed our identity and surrender completely, that's when magic begins to work. It is essential to learn how to 'LET GO' of people, circumstance, emotions and fears. I realized that the Heart knows it all...

The journey has been beautiful, from the day I arrived, all confused and unsure about life to to today when I am leaving with a sense of self awareness and clarity about what I want from my life. My thoughts were cluttered and scattered and my mind was in a mess. Doing meditation made my thoughts so much cleared in my head. Now I am able to track the transitions and thoughts in my mind very well.
Pratibha Agarwal, Pune
My realizations have been inspiring as well surprising to me. It has been a fruitful journey of 4 days where I was able to reflect a lot on my past, present and future. I believe this journey has helped me to understand myself better and if these realizations stay with me post the retreat, I will be better at different situations in my life.
Saurabh Goenka, Delhi
I realized that I have a voice within which tries to tell me so many things but I could never hear it because of my busy life. This retreat helped me connect to that voice of my soul and do things I always wished to do.
Syed Nahid Pasha, Hyderabad
It was surprising to see how many fears we have inside us but somewhere tend to refuse their existence. I realized acknowledging our fears is so important. The entire process was a journey of self discovery, it came from within and at times by listening to others' life stories. I got to realize that I have a friend (my heart) with me constantly with whom I can share my life whenever I feel like.
