Sat Sri Akaal my dear brother Punnu

I want to express my deepest gratitude and love to you for the journey you took me on in the 200 hour Meditation Teacher Training, opening my heart, getting me out of my mind, connecting with my higher self and my Divine. I feel so blessed and immensely grateful that our paths crossed and the Universe showed me the path to you. I had some phenomenal shifts and my heart has healed from past wounds, Punnu you have changed my life.

Throughout the training I had positive signs that my vibrational frequency was rising and reaching an expanded state of higher consciousness. Working with our energy system, chakras and kundalini energy, I had some intense experiences where I had very powerful, euphoric, blissful sensations running through my body. You showed us how to get out of our fears and find courage to visit negative emotions and old suppressed wounds and traumas, some dating back to young childhood and took us on a beautiful healing journey and safely brought us back. Those emotions no longer have a place in my body, mind and heart and when I think about them now they no longer have an emotional charge, so I can confidently say I feel truly healed from my past and feel positively different towards those experiences.

You are truly blessed and have an amazing gift. The journey was not easy for any of us, especially you as our teacher holding space and giving us so much group and individual time. You laughed with us and cried with us and took us on a very deep beautiful healing journey through all the meditations, sometimes very painful but at the same time took us out of the pain and showed us joy and happiness and how to be at peace, how to love ourselves and be kind to ourselves.

I am blown away with your teachings, knowledge, wisdom, from all the holy scriptures and Vedic philosophy and the love you have for your passion and humanity for raising consciousness, changing people's lives and having that ripple effect in changing the world, bringing more love, compassion and peace to our Mother Earth. You have now given us the experience and the tools for changing people's lives through meditation so we too can have the ripple effect, teach more and more people the power of meditation and spread more love, peace and compassion and raise collective consciousness.

You are an Earth Angel and your beautiful soulful voice singing Kirtan and chanting the mantras and sound healing took me to what felt like heaven on Earth each day.

I have done a lot of courses and a lot of personal development work on myself for many years but nothing as deep and intense as the 200 hour Active Consciousness Meditation Teacher Training, it’s in a different league and took me on a very deep spiritual journey. Thank you for raising my new state of consciousness, reconnecting me with my soul, which has reignited my fire and brought my inner child to life!

I can’t thank you enough for being you and showing your authenticity and sharing your vulnerability with us and I hope you felt the love from each and everyone of us.

I am writing this testimonial 6 weeks later and back in my old life but as a new person and I still feel the benefits and the life changing paradigm shift my life has gone through from the training. I feel oneness with my mind, body and soul and can truly say that the whole experience was a spiritual awakening which has changed my life, I am in a state of peace, calm and happiness.

The same for Catherine and Milda, they were awesome too, giving us so much love, support and holding space for each of us.

I look forward to doing the advanced training with you soon.

May Waheguru bless you and Catherine with so much love, joy, happiness, peace and good health.

Love you so much Punnu.

Love, light and blessings!

Sukie
