To create a collective-shared experience that celebrates the interconnection between the Spirit world and the tangible, as we remember our power and acknowledge that we are not separate from the Divine, but we are the Divine too. This will be a creative space to honor ancestral and folkloric wisdom, inter-culturally across diasporas and channel energy from the Divine forces of nature as we come together in celebration and performance ritual.
“Let's tap into the Divine within, to see the Divine in each other and connect with the Divine in ALL things. As we flow with this sacred intention and reverence on the daily, it will be a LIT spiritual journey towards healing, radical expansion, elevation and deeper love. It's time to revel in Divine Love with all our heart, soul and mind.”
