Description : A journey to awaken the peace and freedom in the inner recesses of the heart and the soul. Amidst the daily grind, and the chaos and uncertainty in the world, it is important that we step back for a while and align ourselves with the truth and beauty in and around us. There is no need for ground - breaking or radical changes; just a small shift in our perspective and consciousness to embrace the basic truths and principles of life and nature.

It is equally important that we become more responsive to the needs of our fellow beings, and resist all forms of oppression, violence, discrimination, racism and the deeply - rooted fanatic spirit.
