Funny long distance apart but I feel this retreat has touched me as well through all of you.

On the night of 23rd May <my timing...must be 24th morning for you!>...I saw 6 or 7 white lights hovering around up in my crown chakra...felt Love to/from them all.Shanti was one of them!

...sorry to break in uninvited!I was pulled

Glad for the joy that's shared through this post.

Chas! I felt such an instant connection upon meeting you. You're a true warrior and cosmic traveller. Your light shines brightly.

I'll catch you when we're buzzing by in that interstellar garden of cross-pollination.

Kami! You rock girl! Muaaaaaah! Love you!

Thank you all for your amazing presence and grace. I am falling short of words to express my feelings and hence I am copy pasting this beautiful quote that says it all -
“Words can never fully say what we want them to say, for they fumble, stammer, and break the best porcelain. The best one can hope for is to find along the way someone to share the path, content to walk in silence, for the heart communes best when it does not try to speak.”
#8213; Margaret Weis, Dragons of a Lost Star

I am thankful to have met all of you in my path. As for the asanas, it was just a natural flow as we are born in a yogic posture and all that we have to cultivate is a vedic mind with this yogic body. Thank you cygnet!

Guys, let the Antakshari challenge begin! Gear yourself with more songs!

A cardiac specialist died and at his funeral the coffin was placed in front of a huge mock up of a heart made up of flowers. When the pastor finished with the sermon and eulogy, and after everyone said their good-byes, the heart opened, the coffin rolled inside and the heart closed. Just then one of the mourners burst into laughter. The guy next to him asked: "Why are you laughing?" "I was thinking about my own funeral" the man replied. "What's so funny about that?" "I'm a gynecologist."

Love Live Light Laugh

Much love to all of you.



I dunno Kami, engaging in such open-hearted cross-cultural competition sounds delightful, especially optimistically considering an unexpectedly different outcome next time ... but have you considered the "risks" of all the post-competition Hindi-English / Indian-American .... harmonic convergence?

I, known for a bit of tongue-in-cheek vivid imagination .... imagine ....something a bit like this.




And much love to you, too ... it's always so awesome to see you in person ... even if you do pronounce kechari funny.

K'man, you're a die-hard, extremely lovable and seriously adorable optimist. Dream on!

Ooh I *loved* this KD bhajan! Seriously, can we sing this next time? Thank you for sharing.

PS: Khechari is pronounced "kay-cha-ri", not "ki-chaari", thank you. As soon as you master this one, we'll move on to "yogash chitta vritti nirodhah".. Let me know.

Rohini, my dear -

This is my very first post. It was also my very first retreat. Much gratitude for everyone present at the retreat. To be surrounded by so many beautiful lights meditating together was a powerful and inspiring experience. Thank you for arranging such retreats and opening them to newcomers. Namaste

Welcome Karmakathy to the forums, and thank you for your part in making the experience as wonderful as it was - with its uplifting effect that continues onwards from the shared inner silence. Namaste.

Thank you Kami for making these available. Such glimpses seem to bring a level of connectivity across space and time to all the practitioners who took part through the shared spirit of the retreat atmosphere. At least I had that impression looking through them, and then again with those Pheel shared recently.

Hi Kami,

Sure, we can do that KD Bhajan ... it'd be a lot of fun!



I just might possibly need a bit of help with ... well .... the ... um ... Hindi pronunciation. Though I'm not too worried about it, especially since I'm in such good company, sincere-non-Hindi-speaker-wise.

Oh, and, of course (per the video of that song) ... I'll need a bit of help with the female backing vocals (sounds like a job for ) .....Yogani's Angels.
