The founders of the new Sense Of Self bathhouse talk about what it is to bring the social ritual of communal bathing back to our communities.

Hear how they designed the space to combat the problem of isolation and disconnectedness, how they used empathy as a key to understanding ways in which the ancient social pass-time of bathing could be relevant again for us today, and how bathing could be one of the answers to bringing us back together again.

The talk ends with a sound bath meditation that creates stillness and also connection between all those who come along.
