WHAT ARE THE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT THIS COURSE?
“My Practical Awakening experience has been just that: Awakening. The daily practice has me feeling grounded. Centered. Reminding me that everything I need — all the answers — are inside me. Everything I need.
I feel connected. I feel ONE with the sky above and the earth below. My mind no longer feels like my enemy : it feels like my ally.
I recommend this course if you are feeling disconnected, stressed, anxious, depressed or generally lost or detached from your sense of self.”
“This class has helped me understand myself better – how to be able to take a step back and see things from a more calm perspective.
Spirituality is something I had never tried to understand, yet it is one of the most important things we should learn to understand.
If everyone practiced it, the world would be a more loving place. I strongly believe this is something that should be taught to our children in school!”
“My friends have been meditating around me and I really have been faking it without much of an idea about what it was all about.
Briya introduced me to realistic, daily meditation practices and levels of consciousness of which I was largely unaware.
I learned to assess my current nature from a Ayurvedic perspective, which allows me to adjust my lifestyle for better balance.
Briya is kind, bright, sunny, simple, convincing, clear and patient. One of the best investments I have ever made. I intend to deepen my understanding with Briya and her associates.”
“The Practical Awakening course has surpassed all of my expectations.
Coming into the course as someone going through a personal transition and looking for ways to work through that, learn more about myself and to make an overall investment into my physical, mental and emotional well being - I found everything that I was looking for.
Moreover, Briya has introduced me to basics of meditation, finding comfort in stillness and inactivity in order to focus on my inner self. Great course and I greatly recommend it to all.”
"The Practical Awakening workshop was exactly what I needed to help push me to the next level. I met many beautiful souls and the mentor, Briya, was a breath of fresh air. I would recommend this to anyone looking to evolve and free themselves from any obstacles they may be feeling. It is truly an eye opener and the participants all feel like they are part of a family. Everyone comes together to support and share in their experiences. The knowledge shared is enlightening and very informative. I highly recommend this workshop! Briya, thank you for everything you have taught us!! You are a beautiful being!!
"The Practical Awakening course has been transformational at this time in my life. The course served as a welcomed refresher, bringing me back to a place of clarity and awareness that was lacking after having lost the practice of meditation over the years. It has, more than anything, sparked my curiosity to go deeper.
Briya is a compassionate soul whose guidance and encouragement inspired me to commit to a daily practice and offered new, insightful ways of looking at the self and one’s relationship with the world.
I highly recommend this course for anyone who is feeling stuck on their spiritual journey or is generally curious about the human experience. It will only bring good things your way, if you commit to the work!
