  • “Before we started, I thought that yoga was against my beliefs as a Christian. Now I see that it is completely in line with my beliefs and deepens my understanding of my own faith. I realized too that I was prejudiced against others before this. I guess I didn’t think that Jews or Muslims had a spirit. But there is a Jewish guy in the class and we talk all the time about how we feel in meditation. We feel the same thing. And I realize that we’ve got the same spirit.”

    Tony, Enduring Freedom Veteran
  • “I used to feel like I didn’ t trust other people.In meditation, I realized that I didn’t trust myself. It is helping me feel more calm. The more calm I feel, the more I see that people are trying their best.”

  • “You have truly been a blessing for both the Vets and myself. It’ s been an extraordinary and exciting journey and for that, I thank you.”

    Oscar Lorio, Recreational Therapist responsible for Residential PTSD program
  • “I hadn’t slept more than two hours in a row since Vietnam. What is this now...35 or 40 years of no sleep? Since the very first week I started using your meditation CD, I sleep through the entire night, at least 6 hours. I feel like an entirely different person. The other thing that happened is that I got to go off my blood pressure medication. My blood pressure went down from 180 over 110 to 120 over 90. I’m telling every guy I know about meditation. I think I eat better too – like I feel so good that I don’t want to eat junk food anymore.”
