    Thank you is too little to express my heartfelt gratitude for the wisdom shared each of this day. Truly grateful for everything learnt. It was such an enlightening experience. Now, the challenge is my commitment to be aware, mindful and dedicated to practising with the intention of really waking up.
    thank you so much.
