I'm joining Service Space because ... Losing my sense of "self" through service is what inspires me to dig deeper and serve more. The people in this space, through their incredible acts of service, are a huge source of inspiration for my own service journey!
A good day to me is when ... I can touch someone's life, in some small way, and make them smile from within :)
My hero in life is ...All the people around the world doing small acts of goodness, right where they are right now. Because ultimately, it is these small acts that together will change the world.
My favorite book is ...Journey books like Siddhartha and Tuesdays with Morrie, Books on raising mindful children like Raising Happiness and books about going within like The Power of Now
One thing I'm grateful for is ... When I can tap into that place, deep inside of me, from which I can do things with a pure heart.

Jul 12, 2019, 16 smiles [At our last retreat last month, with Jin Wei and Nipun, one of the first-time participants shared a candid reflection to the tune of, "I've been meditating for 20 years, but to be honest, I've never been to a retreat like this. I'm not sure what will come out of it." A few hours after returning home, she sent along this thoughtful reflection.] Dear Trishna, Just a quick note to, again, say thank you for hosting the recent retreat at your lovely home. It has taken me some time to fully digest and appreciate what the event was truly about, and the energetic uplift it has left behind. It’s such a fantastic idea -- and now I can see it more clearly -- to have so many spiritual seekers to just sit down together for a day and share what they needed to share, from the heart. Even if we never ... Read Full Story

Jun 29, 2019, 1 comments, 11 smiles July 2019 - London Gatherings We've had a river of inspiration flowing through London these past few weeks with Nimo in town with the Jai Jagat family followed by Nipun and Jin-Wei, who just wrapped up an incredibly inspiring 4-day visit! The One-Day Retreat was filled with inspiration as we collectively explored building bridges between hearts and we were delighted to welcome a surprise guest to the Awakin Circle in Harrow alongside Nipun and Jin-Wei -- Rajmohan Gandhi, one of Mahatma Gandhi's grandsons, who happened to be in London and joined the Awakin Circle on Monday evening, which was a blessing and honour.

Jun 26, 2019, 15 smiles Nipun and Jin-Wei's latest visit to London last week offered us yet another wonderful opportunity to come together for a One-Day Retreat, where we collectively explored the theme Building Bridges in Times of Disconnection. Around 55 changemakers came together at our home in Pimlico from places near and far including Paris, Vienna, Australia, India, Brighton, Hertfordshire, Chippenham and all over London, to plant seeds of goodness in our hearts and co-create a more kind, compassionate and generous world by being the change we wish to see. This was the first of several gatherings planned for Nipun and Jin-Wei's visit and seeded many beautiful ripples over the course of the day.
