“I go to Kyol Che to find a place of escape from all the hustle and bustle of daily life, a place that allows me to look at “what is this?” A place to break free from the confinement and control I’ve imprisoned myself in, allowing me to pay attention, to listen, and hopefully wake up with one less veil over my eyes and mind.”
