Youniverse is what human life is about – being happy, healthy, and in harmony. It merges insights from ancient and contemporary contemplative practices, art, technology, and science. It is centered around fun, non-judgmental, compassionate, caring, and kind togetherness. This series of inclusive free experiences embraces subjective and collective consciousness. Offered mindfulness services, embodied experiences of oneness, and games become facilitators for social- and self-empowerment, and enactments towards unity and love.
