qUest wiRx

we, as the creators, created, and creation invite you to embark on a quest, an inner journey…

awaken into your innate capacity and potentiality through your ability to respond and evolve into consciousness with sensitivity and vulnerability….

connected to the living matrix as members of the flock we focus on the process of finding the space needed so that we might connect and fly and dive with ease…

defining our Selves thru creativity we change the world…

being the change via our sensitivity and vulnerability…

allowing ourselves to be changed…

the field of knowing holding us as support like the ground, breath, air and the living matrix…

meditation is the zero point in the field where energy exchanges between subatomic particles creating the breath, the breather and breathing…

the universe as a supercharged backdrop felt as resonance…
