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

The webinar sessions are so informative and very useful as a knowledge source. Instead of lockdown period, these webinars can be conducted on a regular basis so that whichever topics need elaborate discussion can be handled. Above all, We are very grateful for the people who are presenting, thanking them for their time, patience and the effort to share their knowledge with others. Priya, you are doing an amazing job..I saw your first workshop in ezone learning and then today..You are an inspiration to many..It’s actually simple but we have all lost these practices due to our convience, say laziness and so called advertisement world..Thanks for people behind this wonderful session making is us realise” – Minu Amar

“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

Today’s webinar on Special Children/Parents has touched my heart in numerous ways. My thoughts on todays webinar-“The more we approach without judgement.the more the kids open up. This is great and True. Its starts with mother. Love your child unconditionaly !!!
“Serve your child” is my take away message from this Webinar. These words apply to every parent and child relationship.” Thank you HLP team and Velu Anna for this initiative. My gratitude!

Its really thought provoking. As Tanushree said in her Upcycling webinar about her machine -same story with me. I too have a new Machine lying untouched. I was actually exploring with old clothes available @ home during this locked down, now after the webinar i am going to try my hands on Denim as well. Going forward, will be very keen on buying stuffs. Likewise, each webinar has taught me sooo many good things. Thanks a bunch once again” -Shylendhiri Ravi

“I am not able to join live and hence missing to post live queries as well. But I make it a point to go over later whenever I have free time. All the topics covered so far resonates to what I would like transform my lifestyle to. I loved the spiritual embryo topic, native eating and minimalistic living so much. The speakers are definitely experienced and are talking out of there own experiences which brings a different dimension to topics being spoken. I am thankful for the yoga webinar we got introduced to Bihar school of yoga and now while family does / follows yoga lessons from there YouTube site( we were doing random yoga sessions until now ) Gratefulness and looking forward for future webinars !
