The program is aptly titled Come Alive as it has literally ignited my life - I feel alive and reconnected to a part of myself and people that I haven't had access to in a very long time. Come Alive is a process (a journey) into yourself with others and it is beautifully choreographed. It flows organically with deep mindfulness and it has shifted me and left me full of breath.
