About

Greetings!

Our vision began in 2010 after collaborating on Hands Across the Sands at Willows Beach.  A world event that touched our hearts, spoke to our passions, and encouraged us to continue gathering. It was our intention for these pages to show the love we feel for our earth beneath our feet, the oceans we swim in, the air we breathe, and our local and global communities.

Our second event was a gathering to share a documentary called, “A Heart to Lead” in 2011. It explored women’s heart connected circle gatherings.  This was the beginning for sharing focused peace awareness campaigns and educational tools for connection and personal development.   The model of leadership we hope to model is focused upon connection, empowerment, personal evolution and peace.  Our wish is to offer valuable educational resources, to speak peace from our hearts on important issues,  and created shared ‘Being the Change‘ community experiences – for the benefit of all.

This has evolved into a gathering place for Peace and Intercultural Celebrations.  A grassroots campaign to bring attention focus to peace events in our community.
