"For me my training was a special reflective period which brought me suddenly to a crossroad of enormous significance. I never regretted even once this moment for inner commitment. And I never even for a moment forget the excitement I felt when I finished the training and the light of hope, devotion and love that started glowing in my heart even stronger at that point."

"My experience during the training gave me the opportunity to go deep inside myself to find out who I am and what I want to do in my life. I feel a better and more mature person now."

During the training I learned to live, to accept my fears and to face challenges. You teach yourself how to live using the limit of our physical, mental and spiritual capacities."

"After my training my mind became very subtle and pure. I felt instantly ready to help other people. There is something magic in the training. It is like taking big steps at the time."

"The best thing about the training is the SPT week. Everyone should take the training at least to be part of that SPT experience and reach the point of pure bliss."
