Reflections from workshop participants

"જીવનમાં સારું અને સાચું જીવવાની યાત્રા આ કાર્યશાળામાંથી પ્રાપ્ત થાય છે."

"આ યુગમાં માણસને માણસ બનતા આ કાર્યશાળા શીખવે છે."
"આ કાર્યશાળાને જીવનલક્ષી વિજ્ઞાન તરીકે અનુભવી છે."
"એક જ્યોતિર્ધર તરીકેનું  જીવન વિકસાવવાની અને વિતાવવાની તક મળી છે."
"આ કાર્યશાળાથી ખૂબ પ્રેમ અને આનંદની લાગણી અનુભવું છું, કારણ કે ખરેખર પ્રેમ શું છે, કોને કહેવાય અને કોને ન કહેવાય - તે આ કાર્યશાળા દરમિયાન જાણવા મળ્યું."
