ABOUT OUR LOGO:

The circumpunct ( the circle with the dot) represents the alchemic symbol, gold, which is used to gild an object. It also represents the creative spark of divine consciousness within people linking everyone to the creative mind of a universal god thus making each person a co-creator. As you can see, there are spikes that shoot from the circumpunct making it look like a sun. There are nine spikes, a spiritual number representing attainment, satisfaction, accomplishment, and our success in achieving influence in our circumstances. The spiritual meaning of the number nine deals with intellectual power, inventiveness, and influence of situations and things. It is a number that beseeches us to recognize our own internal attributes, and extend these abilities into the world to make a positive influential difference.
