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.
For years, Lily drifted through life in illness caused by her prolonged sleep deprivation and stress. Her health started to deteriorate. A common cold took almost 3 months to recover, leaving her with little energy on the job. Sometime after that, she was diagnosed with uterine fibromyoma.
Two months after completing her first 8.5-day Health & Happiness Retreat, she no longer felt faint, coughing stopped and no more mental fog. Six months later, uterine discomfort has vanished.
The second time I suffered from depression it was more severe. It was aggravated when I learned that my friend, whom I looked up to, committed suicide three months before her wedding. I decided to take classes at Bodhi Meditation. I saw my doctor during one of my meditation classes. He told me I could stop my medication. At the end of my doctor's appointment, he stretched out his arms and said, "Give me a hug, I want some of that energy!"

I slipped into severe depression when my husband blamed me for causing our daughter's divorce. Despite medication for over a year, my condition did not improve. My doctor gave up on me.
As I attended my fourth 8.5-day Health & Happiness Retreat, I was no longer on medication for depression. At the Second Level Bodhi Meditation Retreat, I finally bade a total goodbye to depression.
I experienced weight loss which was later diagnosed as gastritis. It led to several health issues: stomach pain, indigestion, anxiety, irritability, anger, insomnia, and depression. Medication prescribed by a psychiatrist did not improve my mental condition; instead, it caused my legs to weaken.
Years of taking antidepressants did not elevate my mood. In contrast, after my first 8.5-day Health & Happiness Retreat, I feel relaxed, confident of my own abilities, happier and at ease.
