My experience at the Centerwas incredible and profoundly transformative. For three weeks, I was surrounded by wonderful energy and enjoyed enriching activities with other volunteers, such as movie nights, games, singing by the piano, and yoga. The work was not hard, allowing us to absorb the teachings of the place. This experience filled my heart, healed my soul, and left an indelible mark on my life. Without a doubt, I will return soon to continue this beautiful journey of self-discovery. Thank you for everything!
