I want to thank you for your very insightful and enriching seminar held here in San Diego at that lovely location. Your way of expressing complex relationships and emotions in... simple terms is extremely helpful. Of course it can apply to my own life but I also work with refugees through the IRC International Rescue Committee. Most of these people have experienced trauma. Your way of describing life experiences having an emotional component connected to it made it tangible and understandable. Not only for myself, but it gave me tools to help communicate with the people I work with. Please let me know when you will be doing seminars in the future. Thank you.

In the 2 weeks I have reread the “The Art of Balancing Life” by Dandapani almost daily. For me it is fast becoming a basis for change, reflection, consideration and... development. It is simple, extremely constructive and I gain greater meaning and understanding each day. There were many concepts that resonated, vibrated, during your presentation. Multitasking is becoming a thing of the past. Self detracting mindsets are being altered. I have since increased my concentration thus increasing my awareness. Temptations and distractions while ever present are impacting less each day. Each day is a journey and improving 1% a day is so much more fulfilling, rewarding and encouraging. Some days the 1% is actually significantly more and wow what a day! YPO Sydney member

Insights on a Spiritual Adventure

My previous experience with meditation was hit-and-miss; I’d start a practice, feel good about it, and then it would fade away. There were a couple of reasons behind that, one... of them being that it felt like there was no way to know whether I was “doing it right.” The practice of trying to clear the mind was a challenge to me. Some days it worked well, some days it didn’t. Even when it seemed I could do it with some measure of success, I didn’t feel any difference in my day to day life. When I learned Dandapani’s method of practice, I was at first put off by the need for a goal in meditation. I’ve always struggled with goals, and meditating on the subject put the struggle front and center. But I was intrigued over the idea that I should bring my focus and attention to something that was important to me, rather than “clear the mind.” After a few sessions trying Dandapani’s method, not only did I find it easier to focus in meditation, I started to notice more and more clarity outside of meditation. The added bonus was that I started to gain clarity around the goal itself, and my mediation practice started to benefit my daily life in a tangible way. Best of all, I’ve been able to maintain my practice, and it brings me peace every day.

"Anyone who doubts the value of an ex-Monk teaching business people should read this. I hired Dandapani to speak at my annual Accountants conference in 2013. Most of the audience... were highly skeptical to say the least. Some didn't even turn up! Within minutes of getting started he had their full attention. He was able to turn his Monk teachings into practical advice for everyday living and how to be a massive success. To this day many still rave about that workshop and more importantly most have implemented what he taught. He personally mentored me for a year after the conference and as a result I achieved a lot of new balance in my life. Dandapani delivers his message is a refreshing, real, smart, funny and highly practical way. He doesn't talk religion - just life. The ones who didn't turn up missed some amazing lessons about themselves and how to live a great life".

Dandapani is an accessible modern-day voice for profound ancient teachings. His savvy, wit, and down-to-earth style make him an engaging, inspirational teacher. He provides simple tools that anyone can apply... immediately, yet they are relevant for a lifetime of intentional living!
Learning from Dandapani has deepened my sense of clarity and ease. Since working with him, I have come to embrace the true purpose of my life and am all the more mindful of what supports and distracts me from that. He taught me how to hone the best version of myself and that my greatest contribution starts with living by example. I will continue to turn to Dandapani and his lessons as a guide for a purpose-driven life.
