Geoffrey, Retreat & Conference Centre Manager
“The Intensive Healing Retreat was unbelievable – beyond the wildest dreams. It was a real privilege to participate, being immersed… Words can’t describe the changes that have happened. There are so many visual changes, you could just see it in every participant. I’m still surprised when I happen to look in the mirror and I jump back, thinking, “Oh, who is that?” I haven’t seen me like this for… forever! For a long time.
I’m completely mellow, completely happy, completely not worried about things… I literally am just not even worrying about so many things, I’m just trying to be here and now, and enjoying here and now, and not thinking about what I have to do tomorrow or the next day. And for me, that just takes pressure off my shoulders, so I can relax and just enjoy.
During the healings, I was actually able to feel the energy. Sometimes I didn’t quite pick up the subtle transmissions, but I knew they were happening. But in the specific healing sessions I could actually feel the energy getting into me. I have a hernia, and in one session it really felt like there was something happening there, and afterwards Sri Avinash said he was sending energy to participants with hernias. It was just amazing, my hernia has changed, it’s a lot more closed up.
After one day, my lower back was different. There was no pain, and I was standing more upright. And it progressively improved further. My shoulders are back, and it’s much more comfortable to sit in the chair upright with the back straight.
There was so much more clarity in everyone over the course of the retreat – their faces, their interactions, their confidence and their general demeanour just went up and up. It really was just purely noticeable. After healing sessions I would look around the room and notice so much difference physically in people’s faces. And I obviously don’t know their physical ailments, but I’m sure it was similar to my experience, where things just started changing straight away.
It didn’t surprise me when people spoke about their own improvements, because I could feel it in me and I could see that it was happening everywhere. Being in a group and seeing those changes and seeing how happy people were, and the noticeable difference, just made my own grin bigger.
I don’t know how to describe Sri Avinash’s healing gift… It’s just so unique. His passion and determination and desire to help everybody is just overwhelming, it’s brilliant.
I was really looking for something I could do so I could continue healing after the retreat. It’s great to turn up at retreats, and everyone has a lovely time, but once it finishes, what happens? And so the techniques that Sri Avinash taught are really simple. Not simplistic, but simple, and you just have to do them. Anyone can do his techniques, it’s a matter of actually doing them, and because they’re so simple and so easy to practice, then I know I have to develop those techniques so it becomes a habit. Then I can improve daily, so I can try to maintain this state of joy and happiness. The walking meditation, the breath meditation, the self-healing with Divine love – it’s all fantastic.”
