Poetic Description

Out of darkness comes light. We honor the depth of your love and the ways you light up our lives. We invite you to participate in a special ceremony this year on the anniversary of when Sangodare (Julia) proposed the ceremony to Alexis and a few loved ones who gathered for the occasion. We look forward to getting to honor our commitment to evolution for ourselves and each other on May 7th.

This will be an opportunity for deep reflection, transformative inspiration, soul-level renewal and an opportunity to celebrate the light of love. Come prepared to go within, to participate, to be together, to grow and to GLOW!

Below is the song Sangodare ( Julia ) composed over the course of a few years in order to offer the growth proposal to Alexis and loved ones. We will share the videos from the Growth Proposal as soon as we can.
