I personally have been shaped by Sadia di’s wisdom, compassion and love. I have struggled a LOT with mental health issues over the years. Sadia di has been strict when needed and gentle otherwise. She did not only help me heal in therapy but also equipped me with tools to work through difficult emotions in everyday life through her mindfulness sessions. -S.K

"Absolutely loved the Self-Compassion Retreat conducted last month in person in Bombay. It was everything that I had hoped for: intimate group, vulnerable sharing, insightful discussions, and the space to contradict or feel differently and still be respected and accepted. Sadia conducted an excellent session; her stage presence and facilitation skills are great! Look forward to more such sessions and also their 8 week mindfulness course in 2023." -S.B
