REVIEWS “I just wanted to thank you and Gaynor for such a wonderful weekend retreat it has deepened my understanding and I feel will deepen my practice of mindfulness with a much greater understanding. You have a rare gift of communicating in a way that challenges and explains in such a simple way.” Laurie “I really enjoyed your real and down to earth approach. I was able to fully engage with every week and to deepen my peace with life and the challenges presented. I am also enjoying the ride rather than looking for the finish line.” Alison I wanted to say a very big Thank you for the weekend, I found you and Gaynor so welcoming and the material you covered was brilliant. Lots to think about and implement. Thanks very much for making me feel so welcome. Kam “Thank you Suryacitta for an inspiring and helpful 8 weeks. I think the impact will last much longer. A lot of food for thought. Thank you for the gentle facilitation. I had never experienced a course of this kind previously where the leader seemed to leave his ego behind. and it works.” Catherine “Dear Surya I just wanted to say a massive Thank You for a wonderful weekend ☺ The exercise you did with us around Original Nature ie. talking to Awareness was so powerful and I feel very grateful for that learning. Words and labels can sometimes be so confusing, which often leads to a question from me (sorry!) I really appreciated the opportunity to ‘experience’ it fully rather than simply as a concept. You are a brilliant teacher and I feel very lucky to have found you. I had dismissed Buddhism because I believed it to be what NKT taught but you have opened my heart to it again and what you share resonates with me so deeply.” SC “I have to say though, that despite having six years of private psychotherapy, with a senior accredited psychotherapist, I have found your course to be transformational, both deeply affecting and life
