This is raison d'etre alive!
Put yourself in a comfortable position, light some candles in a darkened room and open a bottle of red wine of your choice.
Prepare for meeting raison d'etre live in your living room.
Press the play button and imagine a dark place: hear a distant sound that multiplies and coming closer and closer.
The sound becoming a sonic swarm that surrounds your body, penetrating your mind and makes your soul trembling in its sublime foundation.
Now, inhale a massive amount of air and hold your breath for a while.
Let the sonic landscapes trigger your experience. Be enlighten.
