In essence the Bible tells the story of man's evolution from Adam consciousness to Christ consciousness.

We explore these classic and well-known stories from a metaphysical and archetypical perspective to stimulate personal growth and improve family relationships but fore mostly, to be more in touch with our Higher Self, the Divine within.
