Very calm, peaceful, my body is saying “Oh thank you, thank you!”

D.B., Facilitator

My number one highlight was walking to the morning meditation, I realized
I had a big smile on my face. I didn’t feel tired or rushed, instead
I was happy and proud that I was going to practice Sadhana.
I never expected that this accomplishment would make me feel as happy as it did!
