You're so welcome. And thank YOU, PETALIA, for providing the link to Mandala House. I came across the story when I had a few moments to surf during my lunch hour. I'm on my way to check out that site right now.

Namaste

Thank you so, so much YOGA_PANTS for sharing that link. The article provided a link to Mandala House. Their vision:

"we envision a world without violence, where compassion for self & others is unlimited & the tools for self-recovery are available to everyone. we feel true peace comes from within and that each individual should have access to these tools in order to heal themselves & their community.

mandala house provides self-directed healing programs to post/conflict populations. specifically, we are focused on survivors of sexual & gender-based violence.

working with a trauma-sensitive yoga & breath awareness model in a group dynamic, we teach mind/body awareness tools that our practitioners can take into their lives--healing themselves & others."

Phenomenal. Talk about inspirational. I am overwhelmed. Once again, thank you so much for sharing this.
