"The Japa Meditation course with Rukmini Chaitanya is transformative. She has helped me to keep Japa meditation an important part of my day and each class has a peaceful, beautiful flow to it. As well all of the people in the class have become like a little community. Further Rukmini Chaitanya has invited the most incredible guests to help enlighten us…everyone from Sound Healers to Scientists to other Swami’s…I highly recommend this course!"
- Victoria
"The Japa course was a huge surprise for me. I thought I already “knew” a lot about Japa since I’ve practiced it for years; however, I was so wrong! Rukmini Chaitanya has an incredible ability to delve into the depths of any topic (I’m taking several of her classes) and, not only make them understandable, but enjoyable and entrancing. Where she comes up with the various aspects that she explores is beyond me. Though I never make the live classes, she goes out of her way to make us “late viewers” feel part of the class. She manages to integrate chanting and meditation and content seamlessly. It is obvious that she lives what she teaches. In short, she is an inspiration to me. During these difficult times, she has served as a lifeline to my spiritual life, and I will forever be grateful to her."
- Mary Rice
"I have been taking Rukmini Chaitanya’s Bhakti and Japa meditation class for almost a year now. The teachings on Bhakti were new to me and have opened up new possibilities in my meditation practice. Rukmini Chaitanya’s teaching style is clear, accessible, humble and full of new insights and wisdom."
- Tink McDevitt
"Japa meditation course has enhanced my understanding and practice for Japa Meditation. Rukminiji is very inspiring, well knowledgeable and experienced teacher. I liked the variety of learning this course offers like Japa Meditation, Kirtan singing, stories to illuminate teachings and lectures from expertise. Thank you for teaching and inspiring us with this knowledge."
- Malini Muraleetaran
