Body paragraph


We are hitting against our own limitations constantly. You cannot force a change, you cannot create a change because we are tainted with the elements of the culture we grew up with. But we can open up an experimental space for transforming ourselves—personal transformation within a community context. In transforming ourselves, we create a new context. This is not a revolution against but a revolution for contact, for opening up, for becoming what humans can become.   George Caneda, Ganas Community
