The Theme

Limitless: Renew Your Mind

Instead be 'transformed by the renewing of your minds'. Transformed' in Greek is METAMORPHOMAI which means the changing of one's outer form from that which they have to another outward form which comes as a result of an inner change. It is a beautiful journey towards renewing your mind to achieve all the set goals you have in all aspects of your life. Renewing your mind exposes you to a world without end, limit, or boundary. It breaks the walls of perception, perceived reality, and false beliefs.

This year, we will be focusing on the very act of seeking breaking barriers and exposing ourselves to opportunities that exist.
