My visit to the ashram in the summer of 2018 has been a transformational experience till today. Guruji Poonam ji and its members have created a peaceful sanctuary with a flourishing garden, a place to feed our souls and open our minds to new perspectives. I was warmly welcomed to the ashram, was generously fed from morning to evening, and had the opportunity to participate in Guruji Poonam ji lessons, we learned on the breathing technics and studied parts of the Bhagavad Gita, a sacred Hindu scripture, the ability to discover the meaning of the Bhagavad Gita through the guidance of Guruji Poonam ji was tremendously insightful.
During my 3 days stay, I volunteered in contributing to the garden activities, an opportunity to appreciate nature as it is and breathe in the peaceful energy surrounding the ashram. Nourishing vegetables and flowers and see them grow from our hands was a very rewarding experience, in a world where we don’t take the time to live in the present nor prioritising our core values, this experience changed the way I operate on a daily basis. I can only recommend to find a moment to reflect on ourselves, ask ourselves what we are seeking, and ultimately, give ourselves the opportunity to experience it as least once.
I would like to thank you Guruji Poonam ji and its members for their unconditional generosity, patience and kindness.
