I felt drawn to attend the first World Peace Mission in Penzance in 2015 really just out of curiosity to see what it was all about. The speakers were inspirational and it was great to feel a part of a movement devoted to World Peace. Swami Aliananda Paramahansa had a wonderful quality of presence and I determined to attend her Kriya Yoga sessions which I did the same week. The seed was sown and I water it daily by practicing my Kriya breaths and I AM CHANGING.
Although my mind persists in wandering whilst meditating I still feel a sense of deepening peace. I am much more appreciative of my life and I am more often stopped in my tracks when I see something beautiful, a child, a flower, a sunset. I feel such gratitude and love now for all my blessings past and present including having the privilege of working with Swami Aliananda Paramahansa, a devotional and inspirational teacher, without her teachings I would still be wandering in the wilderness.
