“I wanted to thank you so much for the incredible experience I had at CHI . I am still processing it, but it was really life-changing for me. The experience of being in such a vibrant and compassionate community felt for me very much like being a winter crocus blossoming through the snow, from rich soil into the sunlight. I felt so nourished and alive. And I believe that everyone there felt something similar, in whatever way he or she needed all managed with a real undercurrent of joy and compassion that radiates throughout the entire program. I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you.”

-Elizabeth, after attending the Hinduism and Sikhism module as a single module student.
