In all moments possible, we must believe we have the power to interrupt, defeat and replace the larger forces we are told will inevitably manipulate us, and still remain at the mercy of the forces of nature that govern the planet we inhabit.

We will transport ourselves to a version of an inclusive reality where we can find respite from current conditions.

Though we will congregate beneath this rigid point of transience, we create a warm, welcoming oasis that invites you to imagine another world and to harness the power of your choice.
