I had been enmeshed in a long period of stress and was unable to sleep without sleeping pills, Reliant on the pills for more than two years, their effectiveness had substantially diminished. Depression and fatigue were unwanted bedfellows in my life.
On the first day of my first 8.5-day Health & Happiness Retreat, I slept without pills. It was a miracle! Since then, I've never taken another sleeping aid.
Years of Insomnia and digestive disorder wore Sheena down. Immigrating to Canada brought more stress and eventually she suffered total breakdown. Doctors diagnosed her condition as depression, but medication offered no relief.
Within 2 weeks of Bodhi Meditation practice, she was able to fall asleep within 5 minutes and sleep for 6-8 hours. With the first day of her Health and Happiness Retreat, she was relieved of her digestive challenges, no burping or gas.
I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease ten years ago. After I attended the 8.5-day Health & Happiness Retreat, from getting 3 hours of sleep at night, I now enjoy a good solid 6 hours of sleep every night...From waking up 3 to 4 times at night to go to the bathroom, my bladder control improved...reducing the number of times I had to wake up to no more than 2 times per night. For 6 months prior, I had to use a cane to help with my balance; I can now walk the Energy Bagua for one hour with no cane support. The slurring of my speech has diminished significantly after the Retreat.
