“I was surprised and very pleased by the time spent on our own practice. A solid organization with deep roots in an authentic lineage, combined with a clear understanding of how to work with Westerners, and the very best of intentions.”

“I feel quite well-prepared from the stand-point of the course material and effectiveness of presentation. I feel the boost of attending the retreat setting. The fact that it was blended into a retreat format was, in retrospect, necessary, and also very much appreciated.”
