The seated individual is a focal point. Now, you have a space and time for freedom. You may feel something. You may not feel anything. You may stay. You may leave. Be. Allow.

The event is an experiment in self-realization; a combination of meditation practice, empathic connecting and performance art. You are the being in the room.
