the great central sun, refers to the cosmic egg that lies deep within each of us, a fractal of Helios, the star at the center of our solar system, which creates all life on this planet and offers this energy freely, as a gift. at the moment of creation, we are each bestowed with a sacred mission, and a singular set of talents and curiosities to support us in bringing this vision to life. this is an invitation to contemplate: what is my unique contribution to the collective? what is mine and mine alone to offer?
