“We are aiming to get regular finance from the Ministry of Health, educate more instructors and activate groups in more cities. Keeping it free of charge, thus available to anyone. We want to conduct research on how effective the methods are and share it with the world as an example of good practice. Using simple methods – inner perception, connecting to our body, mind and nature, building up our immune system – these are the main characteristics of our practice. Anybody can learn it and use it in his free time to gain perfect health and inner peace.”
