SEGMENT 5 - THE SEEDS
We have prepared the garden and are now ready to receive the seeds. But what is a seed? A seed is the eternal promise of who you are packed into a particle of infinity.

In this segment, we will focus on getting in touch with your potential, your promise, and your power so that all that which is awaiting revelation can be revealed
SEGMENT 6 - THE TENDING

To tend means to be fully present by bringing our love and tenderness to our potential.
