    Congrats my dear sister Ioana and family who had been instrumental throughout these 10 years of joy in Burlington …It seems like the evolution phase of the 10 principle Gurus in our Void when we are coming close to worship them in coming months across the continents.

    The knowledge of joy seems to be disseminating as it expands in its own paradise.

    Best wishes to Burlington collective. May the Divine bless the land and its collective to enjoy the bliss of joy that abounds there. Proud to read such beautiful joyous news. The news was so attractive as if it took me there throughout the entire read.

    What a beautiful event it was full of divine vibrations and Mother’s love! Congratulations on 10 years anniversary and all the best to dear family in Halton/Burlington region! Thank you for organizing everything in such a professional way: Shulin’s amazing video and photo presentation, Hema’s deep and powerful dance, our bhajan group joy giving singing, spontaneous dancing with everyone from the audience… Those warm memories make us smile and give cool-cool vibrations:)))
    Much love,
    Olga and Veronika

    Feedback from Pooja from mississauga, one of our talented musicians…”so much beauty and joy and harmony throughout the entire event. Lots of vibrations and love!

    From Paula: every word, every note sung,every dance step was fully loaded with mega vibrations…no doubt even newcomers could feel the great energy that made me and all of us feel like we were well above cloud 9!

    So honored by the mayor’s aknowledgement of Sahaj yoga’s 10 years of contributions to widening Burlington’s community access to enlightenment…through meditation, music, dance and art and that higher love.

    Hema’s creation of the universe dance was captivating! She explained with such dignity the meaning of each dance move beforehand so we could follow her as she filled the room with her grace.

    I really enjoyed the audio meditation with Holly and Shulin. It was such a powerful meditation that transported the whole room to a blissfully thoughtless state. It was originally created for high school students and was infused with sounds from nature. I felt like I was floating!

    The music band/choir was wonderful in engaging the audience and explaining the power of the musical notes to clear our chakras. Maryana sang us into another world during the Chakra workshops for newcomers. The cool breeze was lifting our spirit and everyone just enjoyed all of it.

    Thank you to all the volunteer troopers that power the classes and events with enthusiasm, for the greater good…and for the benevolence of mankind locally and globally. I salute the light in all of you. Big!group!hug!!!
