Participants learn, over those weeks, how to find peace in a sometimes frantic world; it is for those who want to free themselves of anxiety and stress. It reveals a set of practices, very simple yet powerful, that you can incorporate into your everyday life, to break the cycle of anxiety, stress, even exhaustion.
