Atalwin helped our office of 12 people work on a sensitive cultural issue: the famous east and west contradictory cultures where westerners speak up and in eastern cultures you don't
Over a time span of a week, Atalwin had three intensive sessions with us where we got to know eachother more than in drinking events or at our long weekend company trip.
I was amazed how Atalwin was able to keep a flexible agenda only to be filled with what was needed to be done based, on what had just happened in our group session.
Atalwin is an open, personable, good guy. He is.
"The conversations and the coaching sessions I had with Atalwin - about personal growth and entrepreneurial development - have been very beneficial to me. Sometimes it was confronting, sometimes it was touching, often we had lots of fun and I always came out with beautiful insights. Even though Atalwin plays with the boundaries of your ego he stays respectful and never steps out of line. I recommend anyone to make Atalwin part of your personal growth and spiritual development."
“Atalwin is someone that doesn't need to break down your self image, but lets you think you are doing it all by yourself, and then gives you the tools to build it up again from scratch.
I would highly recommend him to anyone who is serious and ambitious about becoming who you can be in this life."
Atalwin is a strong energy with a genuine passion to initiate change. He will not settle for less. In his approach he is open and honest and is not scared to show his own insecurities. He shows it takes courage to transform but he is willing to share his courage with you.
The world is a great mirror, it reflects back to us what we are. If we are loving, if we are friendly, if we are helpful, the world will prove loving, friendly & helpful to us. THE WORLD IS WHAT WE ARE! God allows life to be rocky, not to let the rocks grind us, but to become a brilliant gem.
Faith is to religion what sails are to a ship, its an additional power, not an added burden. THIS IS WHAT I GATHERED FROM ATALWIN'S WORKSHOP TODAY!
Thank you, Atalwin, for being the diamond you are! Let all admire your inner beauty God has blessed you with and share it around. Thank you for the wonderful session at Mrs. Zenobia's home in Juhu, Mumbai on 28-04-2012.
Atalwin is sent by supernatural forces at the right moment in my life! When I least expected it, Atalwin visits Lebanon and we meet... Him at a phase where he was travelling the world and me at a phase where I was traveling my inner world. Travellers connect.... Both our therapeutic approaches connected... I sensed in Atalwin the goodness I believe is worth calling goodness...God Bless Him in every connection he does....He knows how to connect and that is a Blessing!
Sometimes good things knock at your door unexpected. And what a delight it was to be given the opportunity to receive a request from Atalwin through the hospitality network Couchsurfing.
I'm very happy I took the opportunity to connect with this gentle and courageous man, to receive from his wisdom and to contribute to the begginning of his year long journey in search for real Warriors.
Along with some of my friends we arranged with Atalwin to hold a small workshop on connecting with self and others and the experience was profound! In such a brief time people who had never met before (I was their only common acquaintance) connected in a deep and meaningful way by feeling comfortable to set aside our usual "defences" and to express deep feelings, desires and concerns. All my friends expressed deep gratitude that I can only pass it forward to Atalwin for masterfully organizing this seminar.
Next day I had the privilege to walk with him around Athens and get a glimpse of his personal path, his struggles and his triumphs. That day I felt really inspired to further pursue my own journey.
Thank you Atalwin for re-kindling the fire inside me and I wish you an interesting life and the rewarding feeling of receiving the same gratitude I am expressing here from many many more people!
Aanvankelijk dacht ik dat spiritualiteit zoals ik dat dacht te kennen niets voor mij was. Tot ik Atalwin tegenkwam, die ik reeds kende van jaren geleden. De ontwapenende en persoonlijke manier waarop hij vertelde over zijn eigen ervaringen, en wat hij daarmee deed, waren eye-openers. Hij keek dwars door me heen, en liet me waarheden over mezelf zien, waar ik me tot dan toe tegen verzet had. In zijn meditatiecursus en in gesprekken drong hij met zijn genadeloze blik en essentiële vragen door tot op mijn bot. En Atalwin doet dat met zoveel liefde en laat zoveel acceptatie zien van de dingen zoals ze zijn, dat de weg ineens vol en open voor me kwam te liggen. Met zoveel meer mogelijkheden en zoveel verandering van binnenuit. Ik vind het een geschenk om Atalwin te kennen, met hem te praten en zijn mindfulness cursus en stilte dagen, peacecamp etc. te volgen. En het was prachtig om te zien, hoe Atalwin in een oefening van misschien een uur, een groep mensen zoals Youth Food movement, in een split second open, kwetsbaar & ontdaan van verhullende ego’s, kan maken. Atalwin je bent een mooi en wijs man, kwetsbaar en sterk. Dat je nog maar lang zo door mag gaan. En bedankt voor meneer Suzuki!
My first experience with Atalwin was during the kick-off weekend of the 2011 Youth Food Movement academy.
Atalwin entered the room, radiating peacefulness, friendliness and tranquility in such a form that our group responded to him in a highly effective manner. He was supposed to be our teacher, teaching us how to connect and become a cohesive group. But by his approach everything and everybody around us became our teacher, showing us our deepest truths and dreams. We took away great rewards in the form of enduring trust and friendship amongst the group.
In January this year, Atalwin had been given the mighty task of connecting the participants of this years Youth Food Academy, a network of 25 passionate leaders, who share a passion for good, clean and fair food.
Rather than introducing us to one another by means of standard introductions, Atalwin's leadership and exercises allowed us to connect on a much more existential level. His exercises taught lessons to all of us as individuals, as well as as to the group as a whole. Still today, several months down the road, the cohesion in the group is very strong and there is an innate trust between one another.
I would highly recommend Atalwin to anyone considering a spiritual coaching or training session, and I look forward to learn about "the Way of the Warrior" in the near future!
We have worked with Atalwin twice. We hired him to do the introductory session with the YFM-academy. This academy is a group of young food professionals willing to change the current food system. Atalwin knows how to work a group of young people. He takes them by the hand and lets them allow to experience insecurity and vulnerabiltiy. He then transforms these feelings and makes people feel welcome and gives them the power to open up to each other. This process has made the YFM-academy a close group of friends that are working together and trusting each other.
I would like to recommend Atalwin as a skillful and effective coach on your path of personal development. Coincidence or not, I ran into Atalwin right after having a dissatisfying coaching experience. After sharing my disappointment with him, he shared his view on coaching and personal growth with me. His positive approach and open and down to earth attitude immediately made me interested to work with him.
In our first meetings Atalwin was able to quickly understand me, and identify possible development areas. His effective exercises helped me find new ways to understand myself and others. As a result, I am able to deliver more results with the people around me.
If you have any further questions with regard to my experience with Atalwin, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Atalwin often surprises me in our meetings. I often go home with a sense of accomplishment. He is personal, funny and full of anecdotes. He knows when to ask the right question and when to be silent. His heart speaks when he is at work.
The first thing that stood out to me upon meeting Atalwin were his eyes. They were glowing with light, and I could see his stories and travels through them. I came to Atalwin not sure what I was going to ask him or discuss, but curious to meet the person who's words I had been reading and following. It didn't take too long before we were deep in effortless conversation. I told Atalwin he was an inspiration to me as we are both writers and I admire how he is putting his experiences in life out there. He gave me wonderful insight and advice as well as confidence in myself to do the same. He also did a beautiful meditative exercise with me, allowing me to go deep within and it's something that I have carried with me and continue to practice. Atalwin's presence is very strong and influential, but at the same time he is a light hearted and extremely kind individual who is truly passionate about helping others and what he does. He connects with you by sharing his own experiences and challenges.
After our session I felt completely liberated from many of the fears I had walked in with. He gave me hope, and strength to go after what my heart truly desires. I feel so grateful to have been able to meet him, and to have experienced his awesome energy!
I attended Atalwin's "Quest for the 21st century Noble Warrior" workshop in Mumbai.
I had lots of questions regarding this workshop, as in "what would it do for me, is it gonna be one of the many workshops that I have attended or is it gonna change something, etc...
I was amazed to see the simplicity and ease with which Atalwin brought my noble warrior to the forefront. I felt empowered and totally energized after the workshop.
Atalwin has an amazing knack of bringing the core issues to the surface and then very gently guiding in such a way that I felt it was my own self discovery rather than being told what my issues were and what I should do about it...
Thanks a ton Atalwin for all your contributions and being a part of my journey. God bless you always and I pray that you get what your heart really desires really soon and I get invited to your wedding soon... Please remember you have a home in mumbai always and you are always welcome here.
I participated in "The Quest for the Noble Leader”, Atalwin’s 5 day seminar in Baghdad. During this seminar our vision of our goals in life transformed. In the souls of my colleagues and me Atalwin opened many doors; not just the ones that had been closed for a long time but even some that we didn’t know they existed. Since my participation I have decided to keep my heart open and to take responsibility for my actions to all my loved ones. I also have realized that the universe is vast and wide enough for all human beings to live in peace and happiness together. I have realized we must listen to each other to understand each other and love each other. Atalwin taught us to listen to our hearts and to trust the messages it gives us. Atalwin, thank you!
