Praful is a Path of Love Leader with a deep grounding in meditation, an enduring love for truth, and a strong passion for life. His love is to serve, and he gives totally, with all his heart, to support others to experience the transformation and inner potential that they seek.
When Praful did Path of Love, it became one of the most important steps of his life.
He says, “The process changed something I was in for many years, something that was basic. I knew what meditation was, but I didn’t know until that moment that, for me, meditation meant prayer. As simple as it is, this experience brought for me a feeling of being back home. When I was a child, praying was something that I deeply loved. There was a beautiful sincerity and a deep relaxation that was happening when I was praying. In prayer I was searching, and I was searching mostly during the moments where it was nighttime. I loved to pray at nighttime. It has always been a deep resource for me. As a child, and later on in times of pain, I would find in prayer a place within myself to feel contained and supported, and to feel the sensation of love.
My background in facilitating and working with humankind began when I was 18, when I started to be around some monks, Buddhist and others.
I enjoyed their very simple way of living, which reminded me of something I loved very much when I was a kid, the simplicity and the heart of Saint Francesco. Saint Francesco was a monk who lived very simply and full-heartedly. He came from a rich family, left everything, and embraced poverty, simplicity and humanness. He has become a remarkable man for me, he was a master and taught a lot.
So when I met these monks I started meditation, and out of this I started to meet my blocks. I had so many overwhelming life experiences, that I could not feel.
I started then to attend workshops and trainings here and there, feeling again myself and the beauty of the heart. As I love to serve human beings, I started to learn different therapeutic tools and how to support someone else to come out of their frozenness and numbness. The best for me is that I love people, I love being with people. I love humankind, to feel them, understand them, and to be close to them.
My therapy is my life. Living this life fully, doing many different kinds of work, and being a husband, father and friend. Especially being a father. It has been life changing, and how I know more of myself and of life.”
