If you were asked to close your eyes and imagine something tranquil, what is it that comes to you? Are you standing by the sea, or in a field, or a pool of dappled light in a forest clearing? Is this place remembered from your childhood, or the place you felt the fingertips of romance, or are you infused with epic landscapes from film? Or perhaps your head goes to bed and you're in-between clean cotton sheets, with a warm breeze on your bare arms and the last sunlight blinking warm through the window.
Your breathing becomes deep and slow. You begin to relax.
But you are not alone. You are only at the beginning. This is a journey which will guide you into questioning your sense of self and belonging.
