Comments from former travelers:
“The workshop was a rather overwhelming experience (in a good way!) and it changed my life. Subsequent practitioners I have seen here described my peculiar condition in the same way...almost the same words as Surya''s translation of what the healers were describing/diagnosing me in Bali. I have learnt so much about myself, a much deeper connection to 'Me" and therefore more confidence to be who I am in the world. Its a challenging but highly creative path. “
- Patrick S., Byron Bay Australia
“The course you presented was a very good introduction to Bali culture and healing traditions of Bali. My sisters and I know that there is more to learn and 1 week is not enough. I like the general informality of the learning process further made interesting by your enthusiasm for Bali culture, your inherent spirituality, and the fact that you yourself are an artist of several kinds. Thank you too for so many personal touches throughout the course. We had a wonderful time.”
- Agnes G., Lower Hutt,

“Thank you for sharing your culture...and for the unusual learning experiences.
I came back to the Philippines with a clear mind and a light heart.
I no longer try to get in the middle of everything and zoom in for an immediate solution. It's a circle of balance which always comes to the forefront. We are slowly pushing through with the hospital's alternative therapy center. It will take a lot of patience and determination but... hopefully... it will become...
May you be able to share with more people the essence of Bali.”
- Z. R. Cagape, M.D., Philippines
“Thank you for your willingness to share your understandings with us. I appreciate all that I have learned over the past 5 days and know that my education and in turn my understanding will continue for the rest of this lifetime and beyond. Your knowledge will be important to pass on to westerners, but also your own people.”
- L. Gully, Busselton Australia
“I am so glad that we were blessed with you as our guide and translator.
Thank you so very much, this was truly a special day for us.
I send you much light and many blessings. May your days be full of wonderful moments.”
- S. Bush, Abu Dhabi / UAE
“I would like to thank you for the course that I just did in Bali. It was a unique experience one that I am grateful for and still processing. I met some lovely people on it and learnt an untold amount of information that will always sit well with me. It was great to see the healers , especially the trance medium as I am a medium myself and work on a similar vibrations. I had a fantastic time.
- Kathy Perkins, Perth Australia
“Thank you for this wonderful course that you have both put together
I went to Bali with very heavy energy because of what is happening in my life at the moment and had noticed from the first day and the purification ceremony that this energy began to lift and was so light when I finished the course
I also enjoyed sharing the moments with the healers and insight I to how they do their healing and how trusting they were with their connections
I loved the herbs and concoctions that you show us and am introducing them into my life once I source them here in Australia
Surya you completed the course with your humbleness, knowledge and wonderful energy and I have taken in all that you shared with us and it has changed many things for me on various levels and would not hesitate to recommend this to my friends and associates.”
