My course experience has been extremely rich and rewarding.

It has added a dimension to my personality which I was missing.” Being aware of emotions of self and others”. I feel this program is a wonderful opportunity for people looking for breakthroughs in life. I feel lucky that I am “chosen one” to somehow get the information about Banjara and inspiration to attend the program. Though there are a number of learning throughout the course, I would mention the major takeaways:- 1) Trusting others for their own welfare – I always had a pressing need to be a helper / protector of my loved ones and if things did not happen as I felt they should , subsequent emotions followed - disappointment / helplessness / anger etc. I now feel that we should have trust in other people for their actions us to help them by empowering them. We may advise them with good intentions and end up harming them. We can only facilitate and that also when they give overt/subtle requirement. 2) Broadening of my feeling and thinking spectrum – the course had been instrumental in understanding various spectrum of emotions which people undergo-and problems as suicides, abuse, sex, addictions, relationships etc which I may have thought but never ever openly discussed Being able to discuss them had given me confidence to deal with them with an open mind. Today when I hear of these cases I have an empathetic understanding of issues to a certain extent and thus my reaction is different. The course has made me a little emotionally mature. 3) Self acceptance has considerably grown. – Today I feel I can take better responsibility of my emotions and reactions to events. 4) When I communicate, I feel I have grown a little more comfortable with silence. 5) My patience with my family members especially my daughter has increased significantly. I feel I am emotionally prepared to deal with our differences without going into victim mode. I am still struggling (immensely) in Non judgementalism and getting in touch with my own emotions and other’ emotions intuitively. I feel that the course methodology is simple and very effective. It provides space for individuals to self learn as much as they want from the course.
