    Meditation Instruction
    Verified Review
    Didrik was exactly the person I was looking for. My experience with him was cosmic and fulfilling. He is a mature teacher that I highly recommend to anyone. Prior to Didrik's help and guidance, my learning about meditation had been mostly through books and online. Recently I had some rather personal questions arise regarding my meditation practice and I felt the need to have Q and A with someone experienced. Luckily Didrik lived close by so I arranged to visit. His house had a wonderful vibration that put me in a relaxed mood with a clear mind. He was very understanding and thorough with all the subject matter we went over. I feel fortunate to have met Didrik and I will continue to seek his council.

    Didrik has helped me a lot with gaining inner calm, focus and direct my energy to constructive things. I have been his joga and meditation student for many years now and find that he helps me to grow as a person. I am impressed by his professionalism, and how well he adapts to different types of students and successfully finds the right way to present joga and meditation. Despite his busy schedule, he is always on time. The quality of his work is outstanding. He has experience from working with different cultures and in countries all over the world. He is dedicated and committed to his field of expertise and is knowledgeable of different schools of joga and meditation. I consider it a privilege to learn to know Didrik. He has had so much positive impact on my life. Didrik gets my strongest possible recommendations.

    I met Didrik Sveinn Bogason( Dada Diiptimanánanda) in a fasting camp in Taiwan in January, 2010. I learned meditation and yoga from him, and since then I've been practicing them regularly. He had been in Taiwan for just 4 years and I was amazed he already could speak Chinese very well. I visited him every month to review my meditation lessons, for they contain many details. He was very patient and I felt comfortable to ask any questions about meditation and my life. Though he was very busy with many other duties, teaching and reviewing meditation was always his priority. I felt very peaceful when I was with him. Everyone can feel a lot of love from Dada.
