A Sampling of Testimonials

“I am so grateful that The Bhakta School’s Total Well-Being Weekend Retreat, was offered via live webinar!  Even though I attended remotely from Texas for the weekend, it felt no less personal than if I were sitting in the same room as the presenters. The speakers in the retreat were engaging, interesting, knowledgeable, and spoke in a manner relatable to novices with particular questions about health, as well as, experienced professionals with schooling in one or more of the 4 Pillars of Total Well-Being.

Until I attended this retreat, I had no idea that so many health ailments could be addressed with the 4 pillars, as I typically tend to focus on weight management and exercise.  This was a wonderful reminder of how important spiritual power truly is–from a scientific standpoint–for building a strong foundation for emotional, mental, and physical well-being.  I encourage everyone to take advantage of the services The Bhakta School of Transformation has to offer.  The 4 Pillars of Total Well-Being is a comprehensive, science-based health model that people need to begin experiencing for themselves!”

“Thank you for bringing us a very knowledgeable line up of speakers. Nothing is worse than listening to someone parrot information to you. I really appreciated that each presenter had their own story of transformation and gave a real account of it is like to make change and what challenges they faced in the journey to wellness. Kedarji is a wealth of knowledge and shared with humor and insight, which made the necessary scientific information more palatable for an average person like me. What he shared will help me improve my health and well-being for years to come! Mark Huberman was a delight. He spoke with passion and is a real champion for clean living. Dyanna Crane was so inspiring as she shared her journey to wellness through fitness. Her words, “what have I done to myself” are forever in my memory as a reminder to make better choices.

Many points were made over the weekend that made me contemplate my present health and well-being on all levels. One thing that really drove the point home for me was to hear how lack of health begins at the cellular level and I am totally in control of how my cells function by what I am feeding them, not only physically (as in food), but also spiritually, mentally and emotionally. I walked away from the weekend recharged and ready to recommit to wellness for the long haul.”

“In order for me to attend The Bhakta School’s Live Webinar Summit, I had to be at my computer by 5 am because of the time difference. It was so worth the extra effort. The Retreat began with an amazing presentation by Kedarji, founder of Soma Essential Healing and Wellness, providing up-to-date scientific information ranging from the content and structure of the cells to how our thoughts, emotions and behaviors impact our cellular epigenetic expressions leading to health or disease. I learned about why stress is called the number one killer in the United States and about all the myriad of diseases that that have the root cause in stress. Then, in the webinar, I was reminded that “Emotions dictate how we vibrant and what we attract into our life. These unchecked emotions begin with understandings that dictate more feelings and keep us chained to understandings and causing more reactions. Emotional stress is a downward spiral. It erodes spiritual connection, and sinks into our cells and leads to chronic illness.”

Of great importance was the emphasis on spiritual power as the substrate of vibrant health. Many other health-related programs may give lip service to spiritual power and may suggest meditation or mindful walking. However Kedarji made it clear that even though spiritual power is one of the four pillars of vibrant health it is not just another aspect of vibrant health it is the starting point and encompasses mental stability, emotional resilience and vibrant physical health. The practices for spiritual power can change the epigenetic expression of cells, in a good way. Mark Huberman, president of the National Health Association provided a wealth of information about resources for healthy eating. Lady Dy (Dyanna Crane, fitness expert) gave an inspiring presentation of how she became overweight and what it took for her to lose weight and become a certified personal trainer.”

“I have only practiced a guided meditation, but it was nothing like this. I could not get into that. The person just kept talking and I was like, “How am I supposed to meditate while you’re talking?” The Witness Consciousness Centering is different and very beneficial. I disappeared inside and it was so peaceful and quiet. This was just great. My mind was actually quiet and I am calm.”
~ Linda M. A student from New Milford, CT

“That was very useful. With four kids and a busy work schedule, I barely find any time for silence. The second Witness Consciousness Centering was different from the first. My breathing was easier. There were points that I still thought about my breath, but then times when I was not thinking about anything. That was great! Learning The Arc has changed the way I lead my life.”
~ Eric A. A student from Pittsburgh, PA

“The Bhakta school programs are helping me to overcome my fears about taking full responsibility for my life. As a result, I am able to face life’s challenges, in work and all the other areas of my life, with great peace and joy.”

“I never meditated before but I think I just did it. The Witness Consciousness Centering caused me to have an experience of no thoughts. Even though it was my first time, I just did what the teacher said and the thoughts just went away. I thought that when meditation came I might be thinking about my day but I didn’t think. It was great! It went by fast.”
~ Susan B. A student in Pittsburgh, PA

“I found it definitely easier to meditate. I really enjoyed the experience of chanting also. The experience of The Arc was incredible!”
~ Jackie S. A student in Pittsburgh, PA

“There was a point when I forgot where I was for a while. I had no idea where I was. These Witness Consciousness Centering techniques are like sitting in the middle of nothing. Silence. Very cool. Being taught The Arc opened me up to a whole new vision for my life!”
~ Albert B. A student in NY, NY

“I really got into the Om. I had some thoughts during the meditation, but then I did what was instructed for Witness Consciousness and put my mind back onto the Om, and it worked. I did an Om on the in-breath, and another Om on the out-breath, and just continued that way and sailed off into a state of joy.”
~ John M. A student in Pittsburgh, PA

“My mind was quiet. Yea! It was very peaceful. I didn’t see anything but I felt peaceful. My mind was not bothering me or thinking. It was happy to just be peaceful.”
~ Sharon M. A student in Hartford, CT

“The chanting made my silencing my mind a lot easier. It helped me to focus on something else instead of focusing on all the thoughts that are usually swirling all around my mind. I found it much easier.”
~ Pam O. A student in Youngstown, OH

“I LOVED IT! I didn’t want the chanting to stop; I feel like I could go on and on and on forever. It felt very spiritual. I REALLY loved it.”
~ Debra P. A student in Cleveland, OH
