Testimonials on Lockdown Learning

Learning and staying positive during the pandemic times. Let us spread knowledge than spreading virus.

When the lockdown started and when everyone was thinking what to do and how to deal with the lockdown, our community quickly devised a learning plan so all of our paretns make use of the lockdown time effectively and enjoy it it positively. So for 3 weeks, parents from our community who have expertise in their own areas and are passionate about what they do and practice came forward to do the webinars. Thanks to every parent who contributed and selflessly shared their knowledge.

Thanks to Subash and Karthik from the technology team without their support it would have been impoosible to conduct the event.

Here is a huge list of feedbacks from our parents:

I do participate,I think all individuals who are doing seminar and the people who support them are great and we all are so grateful for the effort,the  most memorable thing and  u can see that most of parents are so grateful from their soul. So it’s a soul satisfaction to meet the great practitioner and like minded pioneers. I guess it’s the  first time in the whole great times that such wonderful crowd with positive attitude and great knowledge leaves the session and never forgets it..” – Deepa Babu

“Amazing session Anusha. You shared lot of valuable information n tips .On my personal experience One thing I would like to share .I never took iron tabs during my preg though I have twin babies..infact my doct didnt suggest me at all.The reason is the values are always with in the limit.People who are anaemic or haemoglobin levels are dropping, the best home remedy is, take 2 to 3  dry dates n soak over night n take it with water.when you  chew the dates consciously actually you enjoy the juice.I have taken this throughout my preg. Also  make sure you take pomegranate or apple daily once min.These really helps alot in increasing the haemoglobin levels.  
When I tested my haemoglobin levels in 8th month actually it was increased by 0.3. Compared to 3rd month Thank you again Anusha for sharing valuable info.”
-Samatha Kudilika

Spirituality and Money

How money and spirituality is interconnected and learn the art of planning your finances.

It is a common notion that money and spirituality don’t go hand in hand. But the fact is money and spirituality together can bring abundance into our life. Money is not everything, but it plays an important role in our lives towards a more aligned spiritual experience. Money is neutral and the way we think about money brings a greater impact on the kind of energy it brings into our lives. It’s our conscious efforts in handling the money that decides the true worth. Improper planning of your finances can create an imbalance to your inner self and your ambience.
We learnt the spiritual significance of money being the catalyst to heal and elevate our lives. In this webinar, we understood the art of planning and prioritizing your finances, needs, investments, saving, insurance and many more without compromising your cosmic ethics.

Here are a couple of feedback from the parents:

Thank you Anna, for a very insightful session. So many times it so happens that you need something so badly and when you actually get it you no more need it…I guess it happens because of unnecessary clutter which we carry in our minds…This session gave the required clarity and consciousness. Very thankful for this, will try to incorporate today’s teachings.-Shweta

Thank you for yet another wonderful session Anna.
Every session of yours, I am have a unique experience, I feel as if you are addressing/answering to that one problem I am facing in life, for which I hardly had a solution. Thank you for today’s gyaan, will try to practice the Formula you have shared.


My insight with money was changed. Never expect that there are so many things we have to plan. -Chitra

Was a great session and yet another learning this time. Have not given much importance to money and have treated as a commodity so long. Now have a new perception of money as something which is also god gifted and has so much purpose for spiritual awakening. Have a new found respect for money. Thanks Anna and team for all your patience and guidance

Decoding Dreams Webinar – 1 &2

A webinar to help you understand about dreams and how to decode it.

Finally, after the successful completion of our Live lockdown webinar series, we started our long awaited first Webinar Series on Dreams in the month of May. Thanks to some new parents who joined us to understand and decode the process of dreams. We began with understanding different types of dreams and effects of dreams in our day to day life. We discussed about the methods to decode dreams and were able to do it with few of the parents during the session. We will be doing the series of dreams sessions with the interested parents from our first webinar series in the upcoming months. It was really great to see parents from US stayed up still late night 4 AM to attend this session.
Amazing spirit.

My gratitude to technology team, Subash and Karthik for making this long-awaited Session happen online during this lockdown period.
Thanks to Minu for coordinating with the parents.

Hello everyone.  For me this workshop was an amazing experience. I could not believe how in a matter of 3 min i felt as i was in a trance and could decode a dream that i had seen sometime back.
I was left with a severe headache after the session but the night sleep helped.  The entire night i drifted from one dream to another.. The first thing i did this morning before coming out of the bed is take a few min to remember my dreams.Thank you for teaching us these techniques that can give us a key to understand the messages that have been sent to us in our dreams… Which otherwise wud have gone unnoticed.
