Keep it Simple

Things can get super complicated. We like to simplify, so our students and clients just “get it” – Get it?!

Have Authenticity

For us, authenticity and integrity are important. If we don’t know, we say we don’t know. If we cannot help, we say so, and point you in the best direction we would know

Make it Real

No unnecessary philosophy. We ensure that all we say or do has practical, real world application

Learn & Evolve

We keep learning and so should you. We are continuously improving everything about ourselves. We aim to move from one level of perfection to the next

Love from our Students

I have thoroughly enjoyed Bawa and Dinesh’s courses.

They have the ability to simplify the most complex concepts and communicate in an effortless manner. They have changed the way I look at things and situations and brought new perspectives which has been immensely helpful in my professional life.

I have attended different sessions with Bawa n Dinesh, the most recent one being their Craniosacral Therapy Practitioner Training.

It does not matter what the session is about – the authenticity, energy and lightness with which it is delivered is charming and so full of depth that you cannot help but learn. Their teaching is effortless and their presence speaks volumes.

Feel very fortunate to be associated with them and to be part of these sessions.

I am a Manufacturing Engineering Manager in London. My work and social life in London, are extremely demanding.

The Art of Living courses that were taught to me by Bawa and Dinesh have completely transformed me as a person. They teach in a break fun, easy to follow way and share their Knowledge with so much love. I had never been able to experience depth in meditation this way before.

Spirituality is now a part of my lifestyle and I am happier, relaxed and more confident than ever before. Thank you Bawa and Dinesh for making me the best ‘me’ possible.
