Our intention is to ELEVATE our current energetic states of Being toward the next level of Evolved Consciousness, Sacred Spirituality, Manifestation and Divine Beauty.  A natural purification of mind, body and spirit will occur on a cellular level, lifting our vibration, frequency and fortifying our present state of self.  As we pay close attention to our intuitive voices in a creative, nurturing, inspirational space, an organic alchemy and unified field of energy will take flight.  We will remove stagnation from our cells, hearts and soul. Together we will dis-solve all boundaries and borders, solving any obstacles, fear and negativity that steals our birthright to Embody the Love that we are.  You will leave energetically clean, clear, faithful and purposeful for the next phase of your life.
