WE BELIEVE

..that by sharing our experiences through artistic and literary reflection, we create a type of synergy in which inspiration and enlightenment fuse; this synthesis, in turn, creates in us a deeper understanding of who we are in relation to those around us; we begin to understand our own identities in relation to the universe, we gain a greater perspective on what it means to be human, and we integrate this new wisdom into our daily lives.
