A matter of the heart: Project Air, founded by Deirdre Summerbell

In March, Benita found the following email in her inbox:

"Dear Ms Cantieni,

I recently came across your book, Tigerfeeling, and would like to let you know how very impressive I find it. I am the director of a charity in Rwanda that works with HIV+ genocidal rape survivors and their HIV+ children. We use a range of physical strategies, including yoga, to help relieve the emotional and physical traumas pervasive in the patient population we serve. I believe that the approach you have developed would be very useful for the people we work with and would like your permission to experiment with aspects of it in our programme. If this would be of interest to you, please let me know and perhaps we could arrange to communicate further.

With kindest regards,

Deirdre Summerbell"
