In Lebanon, the Middle East
"Since 2008 I have been spending half of the year in Lebanon, my country of birth. During my time there I hold Amma satsangs regularly, and have conducted more than 25 IAM classes in the capital Beirut and in various other parts of the country: Saifi, Verdun, Hamra, Gemmayze, Beit El Chaar, Jbeil, Tripoli, Damour and Hermel.
Around 240 people have learned the technique, many of whom actually attended the classes more than once to enjoy the energy and imbibe better the principles and benefits of the technique.
It was invariably gratifying to listen to their experiences.
- Priyan, the Lebanese IAM organizer, in a letter.
Few of the frequently heard testimonies:
"To me, IAM has opened the door fully for yoga and regular spiritual practices under Amma's presence. It is as if I am all buckled up now and geared for the full ride with Amma. Quite impressive… and very simple too, like everything Amma does." - Soumaya
"It is a blessing to have been introduced to Amma and the IAM meditation technique two years ago. Since then, everything changed in my life. I have read many books on Amma, enjoy practicing the IAM regularly and was blessed to be able to go and see her in Amritapuri twice already! I am looking forward to keep my close connection with Amma, the IAM and Amritapuri alive for years to come." - Salwa
"Amma and IAM are a blessing in my life. I feel I am in a constant state of meditation while thinking of Amma, and truly communicate with her. She has taught me about equanimity, patience, compassion and unconditional love. While doing IAM, I feel a strong bond between Amma and me. I love to repeat all day long the mantra: Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu. It is gratifying that my prayer includes the whole universe, not only me." – Nisrine
