“Arohananda Ma has a very natural, easy, inspirational, light, humorous and dignified character and way of working with people. It is very easy in her company to feel confident and courageous about living my life.
She exudes compassionate understanding of human frailty, and yet clearly lives and upholds great faith in our human capacity to strengthen and expand beyond how any of us may currently perceive ourselves.
She is very intuitive with people and constantly encouraging us to always keep moving into the fullest expression of ourselves.” – Damalaya Agnijanma
“Arohananda Ma has the most wonderful disposition. Her openness to all and everything inspires me.” – Sushma Brunt
“Arohananda Ma is one of the best and most effective spiritual teachers I have ever encountered. She is real, passionate and truly human. It is extremely rare to encounter someone who actually authentically embodies, lives and transmits the wisdom teachings as she does. I recommend Arohananda Ma without hesitation to anyone wanting to learn about themselves in the profoundest and deepest possible way” – Karl Baker
“I have had the fortune to be with Arohananda Ma in her role of teacher and have experienced that she will always push and pull me beyond myself, for my own sake (not for her own glory).
She has a natural flair for creating a safe, easy, humour-full environment for exploration and personal growth to take place. Ultimately her only goal is to remind people of their own greatness.
My time with her has always brought out the best in me and invigorated me.
She understands all the fears and pitfalls of human life, is open and vulnerable about those in herself and knows how to live life fully with them and without them, from walking her talk (not from book reading).
Arohananda Ma has discovered the secret of life (which is not really a secret, it is just seldom talked about, let alone lived and then gifted in human-to-human contact). She shares that secret with everybody: generously, freely and openly, so that anyone coming into contact with her can take it on themselves and live a freedom life in ease and natural happiness.
Arohananda Ma has been a role model to me as a woman who is equally strong and soft, down to earth and universal (beyond gender). This is rare to come by in this world and if you can make your way into her company, it is the best gift you will ever give yourself.
She is a whole human being without having used any methods or pseudo religions or you name it to achieve this. No tricks or treats. Pure life. This innate natural phenomena is something we all have and she will draw yours out of you.
Arohananda Ma is forceful kindness and gentle strength combined in a person who places you beside her, not up or down, and brings the best out in you without putting pressure on you. She is graceful and the best ‘female teacher’ you could possibly find. Whatever she asks of me, she will have gone through herself.” – Sitara Morgenster .
“I feel so grateful to have had opportunities to be with Arohananda Ma and learn from her example of fully lived vital humanity, and her active encouragement of this in myself and others. Her gift of fullness or realisation of ‘already ok’ has helped me shake off feelings of there being ‘something wrong’, and learn to embrace and enjoy my own innate and sensual goodness. She encourages free, pleasurable and joyful life in others with compassion and wisdom.” – Rosalind Atkinson
“Arohananda Ma is a genuinely strong and wise woman. She teaches with a remarkable blend of compassion and fearlessness: she does not flinch from speaking the truth of things, nor side-step the challenges life bring her. She is deeply intuitive, easy in her body, and fully engaged with life. She has unfailingly and generously encouraged me to live as the one I truly am. I have deep regard and respect for her.” – Rachel Tobin
“I cannot imagine anyone better to facilitate workshops on sexuality. Not only does Arohananda Ma have the courage to venture into areas that may potentially be awkward, but there is never any sense of threat because she treads lightly, with grace, sensitivity and humour. Her steady quality of empathy quite naturally draws people out, and her perceptions are highly intuitive. Altogether one feels lighter just for having been in her presence!” – Samarpan.
