I am taking this opportunity to convey just how much I have both enjoyed and gained from my Mindfulness course. Karuna and Nitima provided me with an amazing experience of well-being. The provision of the tools which enables me to develop a coping strategy has been empowering. I have been provided with a simple philosophy that enabled me to address issues, which in the past would have presented me with considerable challenges. The impacted on my well-being has been one of a holistic nature. I am eagerly looking forward to the next tranche of this experience.

Akanista meditation classes have shown me a simple yet highly effective way of becoming calmer and focused in my day to day life. The recordings that are provided at the end of each class are helping me practise the techniques on a daily basis. One of the best things about the classes is that we can freely share our feelings with each other and knowing that others face similar situations as you, which helps a lot with resolving those issues quicker. I've started applying the techniques in my everyday life which is turning out to be very useful, and gradually you start seeing changes in the way you handle difficult situations with ease. All in all, very useful class and I strongly recommend it to anyone who wishes to bring more calmness in their lives.

Karuna is a wonderful meditation teacher. I practised meditation for sometime before joining his classes, but found myself going in circles. With his guidance I have made positive developments in mindfulness which have extended beyond my meditation and into my everyday life.

Karuna devised a meditation course for a group of people, like me, who had little or no experience in this practice. His teachings were extraordinarily valuable and profoundly affected my daily life. He was inventive with his approach, and patient. I thought he was truly talented.

I first came at Karuna`s course without knowing what to expect, as a complete beginner into meditation and his complete guide into mindfulness and meditation was a life changer for me. I did experience some emotional problems in the past 4 years and I can see now how the problems are fading away, how my life is changing week by week. Karuna and Nitima are one of the best people to join in this journey about self knowing, calmness,meditation, mindfulness as they know what they`re doing, they`re fully qualified professionals, you can see from the start they love their job, they dedicate their time with passion and awareness. I would definitely recommend this to every people out there, doesn`t matter whether they experience different problems or they just want to improve the quality of their life, the course will be an absolute gain.

Karuna Priya provides a very calm, caring and safe environment in which to begin to learn some of the various aspects and practices of mindfulness meditation. He follows up the hour long class with a weekly email and a recording which is really helpful in sustaining a home practice. I have found him to be very flexible and accommodating and always available with advice and guidance. It has been a lovely introduction to mindfulness meditation and I would certainly do another course or day retreat with Karuna in the future.

First I would like to thank Karuna & Nitima so much for sharing the Cracked Pot story with me !! It brought tears to my eyes. I realised how we go on wanting or wishing to change others but the only thing we need to change is our thoughts and to truly take individual for who they are accept and acknowledge to joyfully appreciate all the many colours and shades to create the beautiful rainbow. One of many awakening experiences that I have learnt in just a few weeks is the word ‘mindfulness’ and for me I think this is the first step we needed to recognise and be aware of in order to move through our journey. I would truly like to thank you both so much for given me the opportunity of a life time with the 8 week course of mindfulness mediation along with some of Nitima’s tapping EFT. It has completely changed my life !! I am able to step back and think what is “Life” ... it’s about living in the moment this moment. I have never felt this inner peace before!! I can't wait to sharing the next course with you both.
