The women and men would then split to their separate rooms for our morning sessions, which would include a touch of story-telling, a drop of yoga, a spoonful of chanting, and buckets full of inspiration and love. On our side Shanti, Nirvair and Kirn conducted the sessions together and they were seamless – the message was always one and loud and clear. These sessions lasted for about 4 hours and we always came out freash, awake and hungry :)
After lunch we would have another session, similar to the one before. Kirn would warn us before lunch to go easy on the food (always difficult once we saw the spread – all that watermelon!) and then she would make us pay for not heeding her advice :) I think it was a family thing – Guru Chander was just as enthusiastic on the men’s side and they got the children roped in as well as Guru Sandesh and Guru Mitter led us through Nabhi Kriya exactly when all we were hoping for was a good lie down under the palm trees by the beach!
And then we would eat (again!) before coming together for Rehraas, and after our separate night sessions we would all disperse, although most of us would hang about in the sadhana rooms because it was too difficult to just sudddenly tear away from that energy. We would compare notes and sing songs and gave massages and then when the yawning started we would tread back to our rooms and enter the realm of dreams in which we could pretend that we were still with everyone, sitting together in the Sadhana Room, singing Guru Guru Vahe Guru, Guru Raam Das Guru, and celebrating the wonders of this beautiful world.
