<< What I took away from this mantra experience was the desire to slow down the frequency of my thought process(es) and attempt to acknowledge the situation in its entirety.
The performance component itself was exciting because it was a lovely transition back into “performing” being viewed by some form or sort of audience while having the liberty and room to choose your path.>>
