His energy and meditation technique is unique and inspires to deal with life and its random moments different, look deeper within.

  • Review by Zivile Vainauskaite from Lithuania

    "I can tell that I got invaluable experience from meeting with teacher Vidhi. For sure, it is hard to take everything from Vidhi what he wants to give you in one meeting. But that one time was enough to understand that a miracle could come in life and a person can become happy without clear or specific reason or goal, just to be happy in their ordinary everyday lives. Thank you, Vidhi and organizers of the project."

  • Review by Renata Zemaitiene from Lithuania

    "Become a miracle. Bring this feeling and never let it go away. I felt power flow after evening session. Really, nearly double,not only emotionally, but also physically. Just come and be yourself. I recommend it for everybody who always thinks, "It's not me”, “It’s not right time”, “I can’t do it today”, and ”what’s the point?”. Everyone deserves this feeling."

    "Feelings after the session are very great and I feel full of energy (especially full of internal energy). Thanks for wonderful meeting with meditation teacher Vidhi.

  • Review by Aisha Greenan from reland

    "I attended one of the meditation sessions of Vidhi and was completely mesmerized by how it made me feel later. What seemed tough in the beginning started to melt and dissolve and by the time we were finished , I felt so much lighter, so much at peace with myself and so much in the moment. I also subscribed to his healing and tantra massage and having traveled around I have had many experiences but must say this one was just something else. When I got up, finally I had butterflies in my stomach and so much energy inside me. I seemed to be flushed with a wave of happiness. "

    "The evening session with the teacher Vidhi was that thing I was looking for. I am glad that I have been there! There was peace everywhere after session. During the evening session, I learned what yoga and breathing exercises to perform and the what points of body to press to reduce pain caused by stress and fatigue, how to perform meditation, and how to activate your vital energy by yourself. I think this session would be interesting and useful for Utena residents, so I will try to organize it, in cooperation with you."

  • Review by Dorota Niemiec from Poland

    "While heading to India, one of my friends an ex student of Vidhi recommended Vidhi for a healing massage for one of my long ailing knee and back injury resulting from a tension. I was open to the idea of getting a massage and found Vidhi to be incredibly intuitive and someone with the ability to understand the connection of the mind, emotion and the body. I have never had a better massage before and since then I have found a lot of relief in my pains, and also found a new spiritual path. Vidhi’s meditation sessions along with his massage therapy has helped me heal faster and somehow become a more happier and in the moment person."

  • Review by Caroline Michon from France

    "Vidhi can understand you and heal you like no one else. His whole idea of going deeper inside oneself and seeing the reality without any attachment is incredible. I faced my deepest fears, challenges and soon the tension became pain, pain became tears and tears became happiness as I accepted myself and the beauty inside me so much more. It was a life changing moment. "

    "Before meeting Vidhi, I never believed in the concept of healing, energy, or any voodoo that people talk about. I first attended his healing session, in France and I was amazed how calm and happy I woke up after the session was over. Full of energy and a child-like happiness. I am a more open person now, he guides, he touches, and changes your life all the while making you see inside, making you the master of your life changes, and never taking credit for it. Highly recommended!"

  • Review by Toma Vysniauskiene from Lithuania

    "During evening session, I learned what yoga and breathing exercises to perform and the what points of body to press to reduce pain caused by stress and fatigue, how to perform meditation, how to activate your vital energy by yourself. I enjoyed special yoga exercises a lot because we made just three simple exercises and I felt effect immediately, back and head pain gone, energy increased. There was a lot of different feelings during meditation practice time: from pain, muscle tension to cold, and heat waves. Collected stress was eliminated from the body in this way. It was my second practice of meditation with the teacher and it was much more colorful than the first one in a way that it surprised me. It was interesting to myself and another person therapy session, a great opportunity to train to visualize, feel, and transfer solar energy to another person. Moreover, I was amazed about very strong energy from the teacher. It not only surprised me, but also encouraged me for additional sessions, because it proved that teacher's hand therapy really works.

    "I have just returned from a meeting with teacher Vidhi. We discussed about yesterday meditation. I liked everything a lot. I experienced easy internal cleaning feeling. This actually helps to calm minds and get into some kind of trance. The modern world is full of stress and rush, and yesterday's meditation was a return to the myself. "

  • Review by Z. V. from Lithuania

    "When I was going to the session, I did not even know what to expect because I have never tried meditation. I did not understand what it is at all. I was afraid a little bit, to not understand what to do, but perhaps some sort of softness and calmness in the air, and his voice allowed me to relax easily. In the end of the session, some very strange and different emotions or energy came into me. Something hard to describe and yet it was new for me. But the most important thing was that lightness, warmth, and feeling of huge space that filled my heart after the session. "

  • Review by Indre Tabaraite from Lithuania

    "I am a first time student of meditation but I’m thinking more and more every day that it is very important for each person. Everybody is running, hurrying, we have million things to do, and we spend less and less time for ourselves. I am very happy that you initiated this kind of workshop which familiarizes people with the most basic principles of how to relax. It is very important and necessary. Thank you teacher Vidhi, for sincerity, inner peace, simplicity, and immediacy. It warms people and make them friendlier. I really liked the healing ritual when we were divided into the pairs and we shared our energy, and good thoughts with another person who we didn’t know at all. "

  • Review by Birute Kulvelyte from Lithuania

    "When I was talking with the teacher, it seemed to me that he supports touching. He is trying to make that one person would feel another person touch while they are greeting and during the massage (I haven’t practiced yoga and meditation, that’s why I do not know what really should be that Reiki massage). As I understood he has the knowledge about the natural treatments also. I felt great after the session, I felt that the body is more relaxed next day, it is easier to get back (personally for me, relaxation and benefit for posture, spine is the most important). I liked that part of session in which we meditated while we were lying (we tried to focus on the sensations in different parts of the body ) because during this part I almost disconnected. I think, during the session, the teacher reminded not to deviate from the concentration in the breathing or feeling in right intervals. I mean, when I felt that thoughts were going somewhere else, then teacher reminded to concentrate on breathing. I didn’t realize before, that five minutes is not enough for meditation. Now I know. "
