5. Participant Feedback
The below contains some of the feedback from participants that attended the October 2016 Retreat:
I came back to Zim chaos - not the traffic kind but the governance kind - and almost immediately knew
what had to be done to change my life. It was all so clear! The jump I did off the high rock into the Ganges
with the amazing support of the little Indian guy edging me on has led to greater things - now that I trust the
universe to give me everything I need. I now too flow with the sacred Ganges and am loving every minute.
Calm with a touch of variety along the way! – Leonora
As I look back on the last two weeks, and the euphoria has subsided into a sense of calm forward
momentum, I continue to apply the principles learnt whilst in India to my daily life, sharing what touched
me, letting love lead me forward, adjusting my daily routine in little ways to improve myself constantly,
whilst also living each day as fully as possible, and celebrating every success and using every failure to
spur me forward, I would like to thank you all for the journey shared. – Drew
My 'masterpiece' message came through so clearly during the meditation on the beach in Goa, and
culminated when letting our lanterns glide up into the night sky and drop into the beautiful sea - the
message is: I am the Ganges, I flow gently with soft sand banks and rounded pebbles around me
and supporting me; I am strong and turbulent when I need to be when the sharp jagged rocks restrict my
flow, I continue to flow gently where there is love and mutual respect; I go deeper when necessary when
some will pollute my flow and eventually I flow into the big beautiful ocean - no matter what, I will endure
and become stronger! Thank you all for the amazing journey – Lyn
Thank you Smiling Souls - a journey filled with laughter, acceptance, adventure and so much love. How
amazing to have met so many aspects of Heaven – Zita
"if you aren't happy in a one bed-roomed apartment, you won't be happy in a two bed-roomed apartment".
Throughout the trip, I witnessed the gratitude of the people we saw in each place - their contentment,
despite how little they had. This was perhaps my greatest insight and take-away lesson of the trip. – Matt
I experienced a few big realisations that day at the campsite… I had a vision of how my life could be, how I
could be…. I saw that balance couldn't be 'practiced'... it had to be allowed. The nature of the universe is
perfect balance. Its tendency is to evolve and revert always to a place where nothing more is needed or
required to be complete. Then why did it need to be forced within ourselves? All I had to be was authentic,
listen to my heart and learn from experience - know that if my every action and word were conscious, from
a place of love and for the benefit of the whole - balance would naturally prevail. – Lynette
