Red string
Red String

“The red string carries the stone hand raised in the expression of ahimsa, the ultimate sign of nonviolence in Janism and Hinduism, and the hole in the hand is in the shape of the heart, the symbol of Love in the West. This necklace was brought back from India to us by PryaShaniar. Added to that on the red string now is their silver symbol of Om, the ultimate ONENESS.”


“The manacles represent the "mind-forged manacles" described by William Blake in his poem "London." In this class they represent the unexamined ideologies and beliefs that keep us in unconscious slavery. In this regard, our goal is represented on the Tower: “YeShall Know The Truth And The Truth Shall Make You Free””

Shell of pilgrimage
Shell of Pilgrimage

“Brought to us by Ben Glick who walked the last hundred kilometers of The Way to Santiago de Compostella in Spain to bring this back to us, symbolizing our pilgrimages to the Truth That Will Set Us Free”
