Dear Susan

I am so incredibly grateful to you for this life-changing experience. Both the Panchakarma detox treatments and the introduction to the magnificence of Maui – were truly wonderful, nourishing and unforgettable. I am also grateful to Google for directing me to you, and to the universe for taking care of the rest.

Your wisdom and genuine dedication to all things Ayurvedic is remarkable and inspirational. I feel blessed to have had you cater to all of my needs, physically and emotionally, both on and off the table, with such genuine care, knowledge, sensitivity and insight.

I absolutely loved your company and all the moments we shared on our adventures.

I feel so blessed to have been able to gift myself this time of self care. Without your guidance and expertise though, it would not have been as special.

I am leaving this experience feeling lighter and enlightened – both physically and emotionally, and trust that I will make every effort to start to make some significant changes in my life, going forward. I know this will be challenging, but I am feeling motivated and inspired. And I thank you for that ?.

After a full 10 day Panchakarma, I am blessed to have kicked in a valid approach to Health Restoration since I have embarked on this journey… Benefits have been numerous including a complete 180 degree turn away from daily cannabis abuse, a bonafide desire to use the increased new found energy to get my ass back in the gym, after a 10 year hiatus, the cleanse opened my path to see Spirit-based ideas .. raising my conscious to recognizing I am a co-creator with the Universe, which leads me know to a desire to eat fresh organic vegetables, meditate more, and the benefits keep unfolding in improved health, lower BMI, increased activity and improved relationships with others around me! Your training has forever changed my humble life to begin to fulfill my true potential in whatever lies ahead and I have you to thank Susan Wilesmith, as the VERY competent facilitator of this transformative process, I am humbled, grateful and on a better path.. you put something better inside of me… Thank you, Teacher, mahalo Susan.

“Susan is a spectacular woman whose ability to explore Ayurveda is an experience that will leave you mystified and connected with your truth.  Susan’s ability to read the pulse was astounding.  She helped me understand and see what was going on in my life, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, in a way that was meaningful and affirming.   I would recommend her to those seeking the best in Ayurvedic care.  I am now inspired to learn how to read pulses myself!”

TESTIMONIAL FROM –Janet Long, Massage Therapist, NJ, USA

“I am not sure which is the greater gift….Panchakarma or Susan. Both came to me at a time when I was reaching out for a kind of rebirth and clarity of purpose. I found that the Panchakarma not only purified my body, but also provided a means to let go of many other things that I was holding onto. I walked away, feeling lighter in body, mind and spirit. Susan herself is a treasure of a soul…her tender spirit guides the Panchakarma journey in a gentle healing way. I feel blessed that the Universe allowed me to enter this journey.”
