    I was doubtful if the presenter can provide really valuable information. But on the 11th lecture, I drew in totally. Great and quick tutorial at least to understand me and be honest about what is major and minor to me. Great work. Thank you.

    Enjoyable. There are obvious things that we should know already, but the scientific part is very well explained.

    I find it easy to hear from Instructor as there is a clear tone and easy to understand.. even the slang is great without any difficulty to know the exact words used in his sentenses.. I really enjoy his way of teaching with practical examples.. keep rocking..

    So far, it is good. The examples are very meaningful. I would be more engaged to the topics if the presenter was a little bit faster in presenting.

    it has been an outstanding course that teaches you about the mind - body integration. And when a MD tries to integrate the higher consciousness with scientific evidence, the result is this outstanding course with enough scientific evidence and the spiritual belief to tap into the unlimited power of our own minds. May the universe bless you Instructor

    I enjoyed the incorporation of humor, and the inclusion of movie clips throughout the lecture. It was never unnecessarily wasteful of my time by being redundant, repetitive. A quality production that I felt was made by professionals who knew their stuff. It is the best lecture that I've completed thus far (out of four total) at the Gurukol Learning Center.
