  • That you reflect deeper on yourself and your identity.. That you stand on the shores of the illusory limits of your rights and responsibilities and extend from there to encompass all the world, this is the moment where you discover your deep freedom, and that true understanding of the depth of the self only comes with the discovery of difference with the other, of living together, this beautiful coexistence that makes us savor a new taste to life, as citizens accepting the other. Thank you for this, thank you for this amazing and fruitful training.
