Like an invisible umbilical cord, we are all intrinsically connected with each other through our breathing as if never ending tidal waves, the unmistakable sign of life, “ ANIMA “, - the vibrant essence of life force that animates us from within, stays floating in the air for a while, until it gets taken in again as someone else’s new in-breath, the new life energy that easily infiltrates the boundary of every skin, transcending even beyond the time and history, beyond our collective memories and long forgotten legacies which we have shared and inherited from our ancestors.
Today we are here with you, bridging our past, present and emerging future while cherishing and celebrating our vibrant presence all together here and now.
Take one deep breath, take your shoes off, cross the doorstep and feel at home.
