“Bodies will enter the space which was created to purify the mind, body and the soul. The cleansing process will take place at each moment spent in this place. Every individual cleansing process will be appreciated and acknowledged for what it is in order for bodies to learn from each other without being judged. Bodies will follow the inner voice that is constantly guiding and feeding them on what to do, but most of the time choosing not to listen and ending up with regrets. The body will give the inner voice the space and time to take over, and a chance to connect with the other voices in the space to see if we’ll live with regrets … In this space there’s no right or wrong but every moment is appreciated for what it is and what it can be”
