"I found the refresher programme very helpful. Whilst I thought I had been faithfully doing the technique according to the instructions in the original programme which I was taught early last year, I discovered in the refresher course that there were quite a few small things I was doing not quite correctly . Having corrected these aspects I have found a very marked change for the better in the experience of the meditation. It seems quite remarkable how what might appear to be minor details can make a vast difference to the effectiveness of the technique and to the quality of the whole experience . For me it highlights the importance of having periodic check-ups in the form of refresher courses to keep on track .
In the light of my experience I thank Amma for this gift and I would like to sincerely thank Shanthy and yourself and everyone at the MA Centre who kindly organized the course. I am sure I will not have been the only one to have gained benefit from it." John Gill, Melbourne.
"The recent weekend with Shanthy in
, learning the IAM Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique was a truly transformative event. It was not just the teaching of a technique but an opportunity to come closer to Amma and be showered in Her Grace. Shanthy invokes and embodies Ammas essence so profoundly; it is as if Amma is there herself with us, teaching us. It is obvious to me why Amma has chosen this most humble, devoted and loving soul, to do this service. We are so very grateful Shanthy for your efforts in coming to us in
at this time. I felt truly blessed to be given the Technique and I feel a personal responsibility to diligently practice to be closer to Amma for the light of the world.
I met Amma for the first time only 3 years ago at the
retreat. During that encounter I surrendered all other teachings to commit/serve only Her as my Teacher/Guru/Mother. Each experience I have with Amma creates a stronger bond and a more profound experience of the Divine. I feel such a great sense of peace knowing I no longer need to search; all is available through Ammas' Grace and Love. The technique has also strengthened that bond. It has given me a more structured form of devotion to Amma. It is one way I can serve Amma, as we do it not just for ourselves but for all of humanity. It is a spiritual practice that attunes, uplifts and purifies with Ammas Grace and Love.
Though I've been practicing only a short time I can feel already tension easing in my body, I generally feel less burdened, less fatigued or tied and less attached to issues and events in my life. I feel more secure and "safe', my faith has deepened. I feel more "switched on" and I feel a stronger energy within and around me. It is an incredibly powerful technique. Shanthy so gently, with love and enthusiasm, inspires us to put it to practice. Thank you to every one who enabled this weekend to take place.
