Hey everyone,

I am new here. Someone showed me the site that I met at a healing chatroom where I am one of the room operators. I've read the guidelines though not the instructions on how to use the emoticons, so am partly ready to post. It looks to be a warm and cosy place and the people seem comforting and soothing. I look forward to being able to share with people as we each try to walk into better tomorrows.
Thank you very much,
