Namaste, i have been to entertainment sessions where the mind is soothed and you leave feeling soothed, only for the mind to rise again and you wonder why. That's why participants for entertainment sessions describe of having lost it, coming back to pursue the """master""" for more soothing druging sessions. Most don't realise they are wasting time and resources. Similar or worst than drug abuse.
Having been taught in Silence, one would advise that one pursue self inquiry with whatever spare time one has, e.g. start of day and/or end of day, everyday consistent, [youtu.be
], instead of paying for these temporary feel good entertainment sessions which is no better than a Netflix subscription. In fact you get more from a Netflix substitution because you can watch the same movie again even after a year had passed.
Have a read at the dialogue below
"A SAINT HELPS THE WHOLE OF HUMANITY
Q: Are saints who live in remote forests and in the Tibetan mountains still helpful to the world?
M: Yes. Realization of the Self is the greatest help that can be rendered to humanity, no matter where the saints live.
Q: Is it not necessary for such saints to mix with people in order to help them?
M: The realized being does not see the world as different from himself. The help given by him is imperceptible but it is still there.
A saint helps the whole of humanity, unknown to it. The silence of a sage gives permanent benefit and instruction to humanity, whereas lectures entertain individuals for a few hours without improving them.
Silence is unceasing eloquence. Dakshinamurti is the ideal; he taught his rishi-disciples through silence.
Q: But would it not be more effective if he mixed with them?
M: There are no others to mix with, the Self is the one and only reality.
Q: But nowadays disciples must be created, and need to be found.
M: That is a sign of ignorance. The power which created
you created the world and can also take care of both.
Q: What is the use of people like you who sit still doing nothing when the world is in great trouble?
M: A Self-realized being cannot help benefitting the world. His very existence bestows the highest good to the world.

Heh, if you are in the lineage of the Marharshi, as you have claimed, follow the tradition, why talk so much? Why need so much sessions? Why temporary effect? Why cost so much? So thankful to you for differentiating yourself from the Real.
