brightening up their daily life and distracting from negative thoughts
developing their self knowledge, positive thinking, mindfulness and self awareness
easing stress and helping them find a home within themselves
building a community by getting together people from differents origins and religions, with locals and people from around the globe
creating a sense of belonging
