"The unconditional acceptance of meeting a person where they were at, without expectation, and giving them (me!) space to do what was needed at the time was most beneficial. The repetition and different approaches to teaching really reinforced the knowledge. The gradual layers added through the course, leading to the stillness and awareness on "being" that was offered at camp." ~ Diana Mercer, Graduate

"Truly, the wise proclaim that love is the only path, love is the only God, and love is the only scripture. Only love can bring unity and remove the separation between all living beings. Only love purifies the body and mind. Love is not far away; it is as close as your heart. You can find it living there without walking a single step. Love is my only path. I am, in fact, a pilgrim on the path of love." ~Swami Kripalu
