A Visitor's Perspective

"Low but illuminating light is cast from the four corners of the room. Deep olive green walls give the oblong room a welcome and calming feel and the hints of various colors spot the room. The soft and lilting piano music echoes throughout the open space. Lissa’s calm, even tone gives simple instructions that are followed with quiet obedience. There is no arguing here, no anger, no hate or pain. It is a sanctuary, it is peace. A warmth envelopes the room but it is not from the heater. Two fans turn silently overhead, moving the lovely scent of the incense throughout the space."
