About Me

CURRENT MISSION

create and live peace

ABOUT ME

My name is Guclu : I really enjoy the variety in the world. But also the oneness that lies behind it. I enjoy the limetless undying love that sourounds me like a million suns.

My name is Yukari, a partner of Guclu Yilmaz since April 2011.
I am a Japanese but retired workaholic, I mean hard-working Japanese :) I'd like to know and learn many layers of world cultures through CS.
Hope to meet and exchange our cultures with CSers from all over the world!!!

PHILOSOPHY

Guclu:

Enjoy life and be happy. (Maharishi Mahesh Yogi)

Yukari:

People who share the same feelings can understand each other more than people who speak the same language. (Mevlana)
