What particpants say
"I can remember a week or so ago when I had resolved an issue by allowing an uncomfortable feeling to be welcome for a while, and then feeling it lift and my spirit expand and saying spontaneously 'yay I am free' and I grinned, all this time I knew there had been a shift, but never before had I felt free, damn that Amaranatho I had gone in skeptical and his course worked "
