Living a Life of Awareness
Talk with Meditation & Gift of Presence in Sydney NSW, December 2011
Deepest gratitude and thanks to all our organizers, hosts, supporters, helpers and workshop participants who came to OWA Events with faculty teacher Uttama Ji (Matthew) this December 2011.
We are looking forward to being with you again in 2012.

“I felt an immediate shift internally after my session with Matthew and when I went outside it was like seeing in high definition, everything surrounding me was more crisp and brighter in colour, more defined. There was a beautiful feeling of an internal peace, of expanded awareness and I have found that I am in a still place within.” ~ Jasmine, Sydney NSW Dec 2011
“I had a breakthrough when I woke up with Matthew’s words and a miracle happened inside of me. How beautiful and so thankful and blessed. It is indeed priceless, so much love I am feeling right now. How blessed I feel to ‘see’ and it was true it sets you free!” ~ Erin, Sydney NSW, Dec 2011
“What a special evening with Uttamaji’s deep wisdom. I have been full and floating ever since, blessings!” ~ Claire, Sydney NSW, Dec 2011
“I am crying and smiling! Open heart and love. The blessings were amazing and I truly thank Matthew for the reminders of awakening awareness in myself.” ~ Bianca, Sydney NSW, Dec 2011
“Thank you for a lovely and special night. Nice to see life in a different perspective.” ~ Nadia, Sydney NSW, Dec 2011
“I am so grateful to share this experience. Everyone benefited greatly from the multiple insights that are going to allow us to be in life more often from a place of happiness, joy and lots of laughter, instead of fear.” ~ Paula, Sydney NSW, Dec 2011

Many Thanks to our Brisbane Organizers Leanne & Scott Wood (and of course Sammy!)
Words cannot describe how grateful I am to have had Uttama Ji and Janice from One World Academy stay with us in December 2011. After our beautiful experience last year when we had Yuktesh Ji stay with us, my wife Leanne and I, along with our 3-year old son Samson (Sammy), were so excited for weeks before they arrived.
I cannot speak highly enough of Uttama Ji. It was the first time I had met him however it felt as though I had known him for an eternity. He has such an amazing presence and you can feel that he deeply cares for people and is full of love and compassion. He is blessed with such wisdom and every word he speaks resonates with this love, compassion and wisdom. He also seemed so calm and still.
What really touched me was the way that he interacted with Sammy. They had such a beautiful connection. Sammy is so in tune with his environment and he really loves it when people give him their presence and when they don’t he certainly lets them know (in his beautiful way – usually loud noise). Uttama lovingly played with Sammy as if he were a 3-year old. The two of them together looked as though they too had known each other for an eternity and it was so special to watch them play together. Sammy had a similar connection with Yuktesh. Janice also is such a beautiful soul and it felt like I had known her for eternity also. She has such a beautiful smile that never seems to leave her face and has such a beautiful, soft and graceful energy. As with Uttama you can feel that she is also filled with love and compassion and that she deeply cares for people.
Together with Uttama and Janice we held two evening events on Friday the second and Monday the fifth of December. The venue was amazing and had 180 degree views of the Brisbane city. It had such a beautiful energy. We had a smaller group of 12 on the Friday night for the Into Happiness Workshop.
The experience for me personally was beautiful. After a very busy week where I felt that I was running 1000 miles per hour I instantly fell into a deep relaxed state. I became so still. The teachings were beautiful and focused on looking within to change your world and to find happiness as opposed to trying to change the external world in order to feel better. Looking within for change as opposed to blaming others and trying to change them in order to feel better. The last hour was a blur and I remember seeing a beautiful golden aura surrounding Uttama. I also saw rays of blue, green and violet beaming from his chest. I had many new breakthroughs and have been able to apply the teachings in my own daily life and am noticing wonderful results. The blessing was also very beautiful and the following few days I felt so clear and relaxed and had such deep sleep.
We then ran another event to a larger group of 20 on Monday night. Again the Brisbane city skyline was lit up and there was such a beautiful feeling in the room. This event was much more interactive and there was great discussion happening amongst the group. Again I felt deeply relaxed and still and felt like I was floating. I remember noticing that all of my senses seemed to be at a heightened state and I had a great feeling of clarity in the moment. I felt so open and connected to all – a feeling of oneness, not just to the people in the room but to everything. Again I had many new breakthroughs through the evening and Uttama was so amazing to watch. It was though he was a channel for the divine and he spoke such wisdom and delivered with such certainty, clarity, love, care and compassion. He is such a beautiful soul.
The highlight for me over both evenings was the feedback I received from all of the people who attended. After each evening there were smiles, cuddles, tears, emotions and an overwhelming feeling of love, happiness and connectedness. Some people saw the Golden aura surrounding Uttama along with the bright colours, in particular the violet. People shared of feeling so relaxed and still after feeling so stressed and run off their feet prior to attending the event.
A lady shared of her experience with the blessing of feeling what felt like electricity flowing through her with bright colours, in particular violet. She also experienced violet rays flowing from her head (this was after she experienced a blessing from Janice). The word that I kept hearing from everyone was ‘Beautiful’. This was the highlight for me. I feel so blessed to have been involved in helping the lives of all the people that attended the events.
The feedback was ‘Beautiful’ and many said they would love to experience more evenings like this along with the 3-day A New Beginning event. There were also people wanting to visit the new One World Academy (OWA) Retreat Centre in Chennai. We certainly dropped a massive pebble into this pond we call the universe. I must give mention to my gorgeous wife Leanne for all of the work she did to make these events so special. She worked for hours preparing food and organising the venue and did such an amazing job.
A warm thank you to Uttama Ji, Janice, Yuktesh Ji and OWA. We are so touched by the work that you do. You dedicate your whole lives to helping others and to making the world a better place. I feel so blessed to know you and we look forward to working with you again in 2012. It is such an exciting year ahead and a year that many people are speaking about. May your lives be blessed and filled with lots of love and joy and happiness.
“As a body therapist I am filled with great joy to witness the change in perception and the shift in body energies of people that have attended OWA’s Into Happiness Workshop this December on the Gold Coast. Awakening to our true self is the greatest gift and is what I see that One World Academy and their great teachers are all about.
My deepest gratitude to Uttama Ji (Matthew) for sharing these precious moments with us. You have left an imprint in our hearts, humanity needs more people like you… please keep doing this great work.” ~ with love and light, Nicole Corli, December 2011
Thank you to Nicole Corli and everyone who attended our Into Happiness Workshop with Matthew on the Gold Coast
“I just wanted to say thank you for the Into Happiness Workshop last thursday. I enjoyed listening to Matthew, his voice was so calm and I found it easy to follow what he was saying. I have been working on my own personal growth for some time and even though a lot of what Matthew said I was already aware of it felt like it all came together for me. Some things became very clear and obvious even though they had been right in front of me for a long time. I also appreciated receiving the Gift of Presence and felt like I was ready to float away!” ~ Debbie, Gold Coast QLD, Dec 2011.
