“People are very much affected by these structures, whether they are modern Americans or an indigenous person on the steppes of Central Asia. There’s the primordial and spiritual and community appeal of living in a round structure, with its connection to our ancient roots. There’s also the quality of the space itself. With its embracing walls and its open-at-the-top architecture, it is both a protective and soothing space and a symbol of the metaphysical quality of being open and receptive to what life has to bring you. The yurt has a very positive impact on the people who come into contact with it”
