"Spending gentle time with Mukesh has been a deep gift and pleasure for my soul every time I had a chance for it. The slowing down, the practice of deep listening and seeing in a small group helps me to grow, to broaden my understanding on all levels and to relax into my heart. Thank you for allowing me to realize that this is all I need, for my entire life: Resting peacefully in the heart."

Sophie Parlatano Erbrich, Switzerland

"I really appreciated the general approach of the retreat, based on the exploration of the present moment, in all the finesse of life in motion. I liked the art of formulating essential questions, especially around the themes of listening and compassion, while taking great care not to fall into the temptation of wanting to answer them, or even to hold any knowledge. For "the deepest questions have no answers", we were told. And this space opened up by the absence of pre-fabricated answers a field of possibilities, a breath of confidence!
The roots of my spirituality are Christian, but this did not prevent me from being not only welcomed, but from feeling comfortable, without ever feeling a contradiction in myself. Mukesh always spoke to us with gentleness and humility, taking care to give everyone a chance to speak, fraternally calling us "friends", never trying to convince us of anything, constantly inviting us to sharpen our awareness, to stay close to our experience of the here and now.
We alternated between silent meditations, moments of sharing and movement. The welcome, the open-mindedness, the attention, the empathy, but also the good humour and the laughter were good to experience. I came back feeling calm, confident and stronger than when I arrived."

Naomi Gerstein, A Mindfulness Teacher in Israel

"My journey in a 3-day retreat of self knowledge, with Mukesh, was a profound transformational event. A friendly non-judging atmosphere, made a group of interested "strangers" into a compassionate one, inquiring together. It was heart opening and I feel truly blessed to have found live authentic teacher and exploration in my life time." 

Michele Hayden, Canada

"...I just wanted to say what a privilege it was to be able to participate in the retreat with Mukesh and the group.  His insights and his way of clearly communicating the essence of Krishnamurti's teachings are exceptional as is his kindness."

Joost de Wulf, Belgium

"So grateful that you bring together serious human beings in this deep inquiry. With an open mind, you show by your own presence and in the way you give space to anyone's voice and observations, that the inquiry, the being authentic and living these teachings are one and the same thing. Even after a decade of attending your retreats, I always come back, to find new friends and feel and being deeply nourished and connected."  

Norbert Csatary, Germany

"Attending two retreats with Mukesh in Belgium and Germany was a truly profound transformational process for me. Mukesh facilitated the journey in a unique enquiring gentle way from moment-to-moment for all participants. Stillness and silence emerged for me without words in a special mystical way. I strongly recommend working with Mukesh."


Osnat Bar-Or, An Artist and Activist in Israel

"I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn with Mukesh during his last visit to Israel. His profound teaching, along with his humble, attentive and loving presences, made me experience the healing potential of the quiet mind and understand (experientially) how all this is related to love and connectedness. Looking forward to the next retreat!"

"Again thank you Mukesh, the work you propose is full of humility and living wisdom, and in all groups I have been part of I had rarely found such a perfume of joy and freedom, sharing all together without feeling of hierarchy but with a true friendship. I send you a deep thanks from my heart." 

Marilyn Daish, England

"I was introduced to Mukesh on his zoom based retreats during covid and have been struck by the power and clarity of his teaching. He combines this with a gentle, loving and unbiased attention to each group member, bringing us closer as a group in our shared purpose of Enquiry, despite the restrictions imposed by zoom! I'm looking forward to my next retreat and hopefully an in-person retreat too."
