  You can find Part One HERE. As soon as I was undressed (down to my underwear because that was what I was told) I put on a robe and was met outside the small changing space and taken down the dark hallway with all lights putting off a soft red glow. At the end of the hallway they opened the door and I walked into a small dark room filled with steam, the scent of eucalyptus, a stone bench …

Creating a collage that is strong enough to stand on it’s own encourages thoughtful placement knowing it won’t be covered up. Creating a practice of being present in the moment and working with …
