    Just wanted to say hello, and happy holidays to you... I was listening to a 1995 Saptah tape you made and your voice catapulted me into prayer so very wonderfully, so I bought a few of your CDs and put myself on your email list. Do you have anything I could hear on sounding? I'm in LA, rather far... But anyway, God bless you!

    Hi Bhavani!, You might not remember me, but I completed one of your 5 day retreats during the summer of 2007. I was just about to start college back then, and your guidance helped me develop a meditation practice I continue to this day. Thank you for continuing to teach meditation in such a kind, accessible manner. I've recommended your program to friends and family, and I hope to join you again for another retreat soon. Wishing you all the best, Ashish

    Lorraine, I met you at Kripalu this weekend. After taking your yoga chant class I spoke to you outside of the cafeteria. Your class really had an impact on me and I am so sorry that my wife and I had to leave it early and I did not get to stay for the whole class. You were too humble I did find your CD on sale in the gift shop. I bought the meditations in chant and we listen to it all the time in the car and in the house. Do you have any recordings with the harmonium? Dan

    We attended your Meditation lecture tonight at Kripalu and thought it was such a beautifully clear Introduction and explanation of other questions about Meditation. My husband has attempted to meditate numerous times but has been very frustrated. With your suggestion to try a Walking Meditation, he feels very hopeful that this may be a path for him. So we just ordered your CD on that, and look forward to hearing your beautiful voice on the other CD you mentioned as well. After getting a taste of the Bhavani Lorraine Nelson experience tonight, so glad these CDs existed, so we can take some of your encouragement and "light" home with us. You are a gifted teacher and guide. Thank you!
