2012 National Tour


Happy Spring Dear Love! 


We hope this finds your heart in full bloom!


It has been a potent first half of our national tour! As we conclude our West Coast leg, we feel incredibly blessed by the stimulating performances, powerful workshops, incredible interactions, inspiring moments, new connections, and miracles unfolded. From an hour- long television interview with legendary hip hop historian Davey D, to a professional photo shoot by Pablo Aguilar (who has photographed the likes of Beyoncé, Kanye West and Jamie Fox), this tour has been a powerful journey of discovery, opportunity and inspiration! See pictures of the tour by clicking here:  Facebook and go to for the complete tour schedule.


Thank you for spreading the word about our remaining tour stops. SEE BELOW!!! 

Bright Blessings,
alixa & naima
