Guinea Pigs


Just the way you are (I love you) – this song by Billy Joel speaks about acceptance of self.  What is your self image and why is it dependant on the impressions of those around you? As humans we are social beings accustomed to social approval, but at what cost to our personal ethics? Nurture yourself and children to a point where you accept yourself as perfect and lovable just the way you are.

Equipment does not include guinea pigs.

NOTE: when purchasing the package, the program box and equipment are sent as seperate orders.
