Satya Space with Renee
Satya means Truth in Sanskrit. Stand in your truth. Sit in your truth. Be in your truth. Breathe your truth. Create space where there wasn't space before, in your body and in your mind. Allow yourself to grow through what you go through.
Prayer is talking to God, to the Universe. Meditation is listening to God, to the Universe.
