The talks by Swami Vidyananda showed me new ways to look at things, and new ways to know the Divine! — Magda A.
I really enjoyed the organic flow of the program. Swami Vidyananda listened to the group and was more than happy to steer the direction of the conversation to the group’s needs. It felt very personal. — Past Participant
