Hi – It’s Lisa writing from California!! I returned home a couple of days ago and I wanted to share my gratitude for both of you, your help and guidance. I really feel my time there, though short, was just what I needed at this time in my life and is what I like to call a “game changer” for me. My stomach is back to its old self. Sometimes it even feels like Pitta bowels that’s how well everything is moving through me. In addition to being regular, I’ve been keeping up with my spiritual practice, and despite jet lag starting a routine. The best part of this process is that for once in my life I finally get to honor my body and eat everyday! I love eating and have denied myself that by going through cycles of dieting, deprivation to uncontrollable hunger and overeating. I also wanted to give you some feedback on the booklet (the one in our rooms) that I was allowed to take home. I’ve been reading it, using the recipes and I’m so thankful to have it. I hope you continue to give your guests this parting gift to help people anchor in what they’ve learned when they return home. I remember Dr. Aparna mentioned that you didn’t want this to be so rigid that we would go home and give up, and having that booklet, along with your handouts, has already helped me get a very positive start here in the US where I will have to work a little bit harder to continue this lifestyle. I also hope to hear that one day the center is working on an extensive cookbook with an abundance of great recipes. Thank you both for the gift you gave to me and I hope to see you two again. You have all created a loving healing space for transformation to take place, and should be proud of the work you are doing! PS- I’m still not drinking coffee and actually enjoying room temperature water. I have an abundance of energy, which I’m sure will calm down in a bit, but feels great.
