Testimonials from Silent Retreat

Testimonials from students attending our Silent Retreats run by Dr Neelam Taneja

Today was just what I needed to remind myself of the deep silence within.  It is healing and the different ways to access this inner silence (walking, sitting etc) gave me confidence I can do this.  I have not forgotten.  Thank you.

Excellent format, gently presented, in-depth sessions, knowledgeable and imparted well to us.  I noticed I could easily remain silent yet averting the eyes and not smiling was difficult!

*****

A wonderful day of silence to really go inwards, being mindful and exploring our inner-self.  I feel very rested and quiet.  The venue is perfect and delicious food.

Thank you for a wonderful Silent Retreat workshop today.  It has helped me understand and experience the benefits of this wonderful practice.  With this new found motivation, I will get out my Mark Williams book/cd and start to love myself enough to achieve meditation daily.  It has been a pleasure to be with you and some lovely souls.  Venue and food, brilliant.  Lovely delivery and clarity of the subject.  Thank you Neelam.

A Wonderful Day!
I feel I have gained some real insights into myself and the meditation practice.  Particularly for me the heart or metta session we did opened up a new level of practice that I feel will take me beyond some blocks and stagnation I was experiencing.  I find Dr Neelam’s mild yet sharply insightful manner perfect for this kind of journey and am inspired to go deeper with my meditation again.

Sounds of stillness posters very wonderful, has got scientific basis – hence I am convinced now meditation will work for me.

Your technique and method of teaching to calm down a scattering mind deserves special thank you.

Venue, lunch and breaks – all are very much appreciated.

Great day, a must do!  So relaxed and quiet which allowed you to explore your feelings and look at any work on yourself that needs doing.  Will be booking again.  Food was a must try!

The day was really good.  We were blessed with a lovely sunny day as well!  The venue was perfect, it was lovely to see flowers.  The food and drinks provided were very very good.  Its great that you left the flip cheatsheets on the wall and we were able to take photos.  Everything worked brilliantly.

It was a beautiful day!  Thank you so very much for the techniques to help me come into the alignment and inner peace.  “The heart meditation” was a big eye opener for me.  Namaste!

I found today to be healing.  Throughout the meditation I heard thoughts and beliefs I didn’t realise I had and that aren’t true or helpful or kind!

I also reconnected with a longer meditation practice and got motivation to start practising for longer each day.  Especially to my heart.

Neelam was brilliant at guiding us with space to have our own experience while maintaining discipline.  He’s very wise with a good sense of humour!

A wonderful day with a wonderful teacher.  Self-exploration in a very lovely environment where Neelam ensures you are held in a safe space.  I would happily recommend this experience.  A huge thank you to Neelam and the fantastic caterers who made the day very special indeed.

In this space today I felt able to just take time without distractions.  Pure peace, total awareness, thank you.
