I felt that I could be really calm surrounded by nice energy and nice people. It was great to open the windows and see the mountains and the Temple. The mix of spirituality and nature was really inspiring. I was really happy to feel like I was part of life at the Center for a few days and felt so welcome. This is such a unique place.”
