Video messages

From experience we have learned that video messages can be used as powerful tools in our personal process of grief, loss, and mourning. We greatly believe in the words of the poet Rumi: "The wound is the place where the light enters". Opening ourselves to those difficult feelings is of great importance. Therefore the power of these messages do not lie in hearing them once, but transformation is born out of time, contemplation, and repetition. The repetition of these messages make space for an opening where the light can enter us, and thus become part of our new being and consciousness.
