<<The sound, the mantra that I was listening to, felt almost like it came out from my body, from my movements. It’s a long time already that I haven’t felt that way, letting my body breathe and release into someone else voice, letting this voice go through my body, and feel one, feel connected with another human being and with myself. I listened through my body and experienced my body alive again, my mind clean again, my skin breathing, my joints engaging, and my spirit lifted.>>
