"SFSK has filled a gap which gave me a deeper understanding of the spiritual side of life.
Thus I was able to integrate the spiritual practices into my daily life which has made a difference in my attitude towards people and life itself.
I feel more measured, calmer and take on situations as they arise."
"I have a much deeper understanding of what are my earthly and spiritual duties.
Questions that have tormented me from an early age are, if not answered, dissipated or have taken a different form. The context of my life has changed.
The ultimate outcome, so far, has been the discovery of a like-minded group of people, and the amazing power of unconditional and innocent love, non-criticism (I come from a family where criticism/comparison of each other and self, though not necessarily negative or destructive, was the norm)."
"Before SFSK I had a spiritual yearning and now I have a deep spiritual understanding.
I used to be a fearful person and now I recognise the strength of Spirit inside me and do not feel fearful.
"I used to feel unhappy that I wasn’t contributing more to the greater good of the world - I now know that living in the present is valuable service to the greater good."
"The benefits are quite broad really. Most of the positive effects are due to practices which help quiet the mind, the constant chatter and which allow you to reconnect with yourself and those around you.
In doing so, many aspects of life become more enjoyable, or where there are challenges, allow you to tackle them more usefully and oftentimes with a different perspective."
