These meditation sessions have become a monthly pilgrimage—a homecoming for my soul to visit my own deepest Self in a most heartfelt way. I feel so supported by the SYDA Foundation as it makes these teachings and experiences available through the web.
I could feel the spiritual maturity of the teachings I received—through the gentle seasoned timbre of the teacher’s voice, the straightforward answers we were given, and the state of meditation I experienced for myself. I felt cared for— receiving clear and direct guidance for my practice, yet also given space to explore ways to meditate that work best for me. I feel a permission to approach my Self by being honest with my self—going where I want to go in meditation by starting with where I am, then moving on from there.
Thank you so much, Gurumayi, for these monthly meditation sessions! Thank you to all the sevites who make this possible.

In Meditation Session IV this morning, I went into a deep meditation from which I did not want to come out at the end of the session. But knowing I had to continue with my day, I eased into it by opening up the "Stillness Gallery." When I came to a photo of the woods I lingered there for a while until I saw that there was a deer right before my eyes that I hadn't seen before. It felt like Gurumayi was teaching me that when I pause I can see the truth—I can see God within my own heart.
I am so grateful for the meditation sessions and for the most outstanding website we've been given to help us to go deep within ourselves

Today, while connected with the global sangham
through the live stream meditation session, I had one of my most powerful experiences of meditation. My whole body was pulsing and swaying very strongly to the right and left—and the true beauty was that I could strongly feel I was one with the universe and everyone.
I don’t have the words to describe what I experienced. After the meditation, it took me a while to come back as I was floating. Oh, what a wonderful, unforgettable feeling!
Thank you, Gurumayi.

This session gave me a clear understanding of the transcendence of meditation. I experienced a great, sweet reverence while I repeated the mantra during meditation. The loving power of Gurumayi was clearly present.
Thank you very much for making this possible.

My meditations are so deep during and after these meditation sessions. It feels to me as if the Guru is doing a fine tuning to adjust the energy, which then brings my awareness back effortlessly to my true Self.

Thank you so much for offering these meditation sessions! They are a way for me and my 25-year-old son to meditate together on a regular basis. We started with Session I, “Know the Self.” Then, the following week, we participated in “Focus on the Goal.” In our third week, we repeated “Know the Self.” We will continue in this fashion meditating weekly together and alternating sessions, until the next Meditation Session is launched. I am so grateful that my son is learning to meditate under the care and guidance of our Guru.

These monthly meditation sessions have become the highlight and the home base of my month. They lead me back to such a fully peaceful, rejuvenating, and forgiving space, where I just love to be.

It is with gratitude that I will receive this new guidance on a monthly basis. It is time that I really get back into the daily practice of meditation. I had lost it during the last few years, and this year, I made the resolution to practice it daily. Now, with this new series of meditation sessions, I feel sure that I will succeed.
