“Transformation is, in my experience, a word that is overused. In order for an experience to be transformative, it must truly change me at my core and the change must survive the test of time.

My second Camino, I walked with Alexander. It had a qualitative difference from the first. Now I wake up each day with the experience buried deep inside of me. The memories are haunting and vivid. The places we stayed were the best of the best. The connections and friends made were meaningful and lasting. And the lessons learned are now part of me. I am not only grateful but a better person for having walked the Camino with Alexander. Transformative? Yes!”David

Reimagining Us as Christians

Do you sense that the Christian Feasts have become static, historical proclamations? Would you like to experience Easter as a present moment resurrection in your life? Are you seeking a community that truly empowers you to be you, and builds oneness by honoring diversity?

Gateway to Oneness is far more than the restoration of our ancient and cosmic Easter. Gateway brings together every element of The Four-Gospel Journey to forge a fresh way for us to be Christians and Christians together.

Through prayer with nature, presentation, reflection, sharing, and simple art making (if you wish), participants experience a deep encounter with the sacred and the oneness of all. Led by Alexander and Team.

  • Engage in a contemporary practice of making communion with self and others
  • Learn how resurrection is a vital life - here and now
  • Experience early Christian rituals and meditative chant in an inspiring fresh setting
  • Celebrate a radiant, contemporary Easter - rejoicing with the Cosmos
