"The most creative way to reaquaint yourself with the real normal. At this intimate and powerful gathering I got to explore ideas and sensations I had sadly disassociated with adulthood. Reconnecting with my authentic self has had a long lasting effect in my mindset. From permission to jump on a swing and laugh my heart out all the way to managing technology’s slaving ways."
