These very profound teachings were given in such a way that for the first time in 5 years of studying dharma I am starting to understand a little bit more this subject on Emptiness. The live classes and recording on-line was a huge success and everyone who put together this event should be very proud. I look forward to joining more classes on-line in the future."

I really liked the analogy of being under the water, and contemplating external distractions as the waves that dissolve in the calm sea, and internal distractions as bubbles that dissolve into the surface, was a very good way to help me in the seek/find/hold process.

I feel like I take more time and don’t rush to react the same and this allows me to mostly react in a better way. Also really enjoyed the meditation on trying to accept things as they are right now. 💕 Thankyou 🙏"

Less stress looking for things to do that were completely meaningless and coming home feeling unfulfilled after sitting in traffic jams, walking around busy hectic shops, standing in long queues at restaurants etc etc etc. I cannot believe how my life has now taken a different direction since all these teachings started. It feels as if I have finally opened a door that was always there in my life but I just never opened it. Thank you for inspiring me! 😀💕"

After yesterday’s class I made a sincere effort to unblock my heart and to try to start developing genuine equanimity. So far I found this uplifting and genuinely liberating. I am thinking less about why people act as they do and letting so much go from my mind. A little effort does help and I hope I can continue to develop with today’s class. 🤗"
Simply Meditate 4th May 2020
"Enjoyed today's class (again). I do really enjoy the breathing meditations, perhaps the simplest technique but definitely one of the best in my opinion. The mind does slowly settle into peace, and I really like how Gen Tubchen pointed out you can rest the mind IN that feeling when you arrive at it. I had never considered doing that before and always just maintained my focus on the breathing."
