I have just completed my first course with Anne Henderson, and I got such a lot from it. It was my first introduction to the work of Adi Da Samraj, and I started it with a mixture of curiosity and excitement. From the first class, Anne checked in at regular intervals about my understanding and always invited comments such that I never felt that anything I ever asked was too simple. Anne created such a warm and loving space through which the powerful words of Adi Da resonated.
Anne didn't only rely on the text but made it richer by recounting her own experiences of Adi Da, both present and past, with love, humour, and absolute honesty. Her authenticity and integrity made her an amazing teacher. She never pretended to know everything. Where she wasn't sure about what Adi Da meant by something He wrote, she was straight and honest about it. But then she would go on and give us an explanation, being very clear that this was simply her feeling. This often resulted in an experience of "oh yes, I can see that now". I trusted her implicitly and so listened intently to everything she said.
What was also amazing and magical was that I would begin the class each week with a question in my heart—and then at some point in the evening my question would be answered, and I felt my consciousness expand with the understanding. By the time class ended, I was energized and excited about the message that Adi Da is offering to the world. I found shifts happening in every area of my life as a result of doing this course.
Having a class taught by a long-time devotee who had direct contact with this amazing Realizer and Teacher is an opportunity to let Adi Da's wisdom go deeply in to transform you and your life.
