On March 8, 2007, I was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer which had already metastasized in my body. I went through six intense months of chemotherapy, and almost died on my first treatment from a severe adverse reaction to the chemo. Two major surgeries and three months of daily radiation followed after that. Because of the physical stress, I greatly suffered from classical shingles, exhausting adrenal fatigue and many other ailments. To say the least my immune system was destroyed, and my adrenal glands burned out. I lingered in the abyss of recovery for almost five years with adrenal fatigue, a very weak immune system, and with minimal energy until Sadhguru unexpectedly embraced me into his arms and uplifted me.
After practicing the Shambhavi Maha Mudra for only one month and half, I felt guided by Sadhguru to take the Shoonya meditation program in Tennessee. Unexpectedly, a miracle took place there! Overnight I recovered from the adrenal fatigue which prevented me from going beyond. I went from sleeping 12 hours per night to only six, and getting up around 5.30 AM. to do my Sadhana instead of 9 or 10 AM. Not only I have been feeling blissful, content, and serene since I took the Inner Engineering program, I feel so energized and alive! My concentration, memory and “joie de vivre” are back!
