    Welcome welcome! I am currently working with girls in Jamaica who are victim of gender based violence. I have done some yoga and meditation with them. I think that your vision and the notion of yoga and meditation as a means of healing is one that is very beautiful as well as realistic. I look forward to learning more about your organization.

    Much Peace and Love,
