Participant Reviews

“This is a superb introduction to an understanding of the Astral Body. Sagar is a gifted teacher, able to explain even complex matters in simple, easily understood ways, frequently accompanied with a delightful sense of humour. He has distilled the important features of the astral body with a carefully balanced perspective of what is important and how students can be distracted by trendy fashions. I strongly recommend this course as even knowledgeable seekers are likely to learn a good deal.”— John L., Australia
