Past Speaking Engagements

Wall of Love

“They know exactly how communicate with young people. I did the Art of Living course with them when I was at the lowest point of my life. My life would have been completely different without them. They are the best mentors one can have.”

“I am a doctor and I used to treat diseases. After my interactions with Bawa n Dinesh and doing many courses with them, I have finally learned to treat people!”

Dr Ankita Dhelia

“I’ve been very lucky to have Bawa n Dinesh in my life since I was a teenager.
They are fantastic teachers and role models for the best I want to be. Their knowledge, humour in challenging situations, coolness and genuineness is utterly effortless. All this shines through in their workshops in spirituality, wellness, or personality development and bowls me over every time.”

Shilpa RS Architect, Urban Planner and Wellness Coach

“I had done my first Art of Living course (YES!+) with Bawa-Dinesh. I’ve never met such amazing people! They provided practical solutions to the challenges that I faced as a student. They understand the language of the youth and have a fanatastic knack to convey their points of view.

I learned how to tackle the tough situations, overcome failure and maintain healthy relationships!

I have repeated a few courses with them and each time the learning gets better, the experience deeper!”

Mandar Sathye

“I have attended different sessions with Bawa n Dinesh, the most recent one being their Craniosacral Therapy Training. It does not matter what the session is about – the authenticity, energy and lightness with which it is delivered is so charming and full of depth that you cannot help but learn. Their teaching is effortless and their presence speaks volumes. Feel very fortunate to be associated with them and to be part of these sessions.”

Aruna Kumari Kolachalam IT Leader, Bangalore

“Every time I attend Bawa and Dinesh dada’s sessions one thing is guaranteed – I come back feeling lighter, energetic and uplifted.

Their sessions are filled with facts and practical knowledge. It has helped me to be more confident, a team player, a good leader and most importantly to have a bigger vision for life by giving back to society.”

Dhara Shah SAP consultant, Mumbai

“Every interaction I’ve had with them (Bawa n Dinesh) has been absolutely marvellous and hilarious, to say the least. Bawa has such a rib tickling sense of humour, it has me chuckling even when i think about his remarks when I am back at home.

Sensibleness and intelligence just ooze out of them. As an added bonus, they are very sensitive, practical and down to earth as well. They explain difficult concepts in very easy-to-understand, everyday language.

I am glad to share that i am very happy doing the Craniosacral Therapy Training with them. I look forward to participating in many more seminars and courses with Bawa n’ Dinesh in future.”
