Why Oranges?

As a young girl, Alicia's mother played amidst the orange trees at her cousin's house in Redlands, California.  A place of love and laughter, the orange grove came to symbolize for Alicia an abundant, joyful and values-based life. 

A frequent visitor of farmers markets, Michael has always been drawn to the big, vibrant piles of California oranges. Juicy, colorful, sweet and sensational - for Michael oranges represent what we crave. And craving is the fuel that pulls a vision out of the dreamscape and into reality. 

For Alicia and Michael, the orange grove is a symbol of creative abundance and awakened purpose--your juicy organizational future. In many traditions, the numeral nine is a lucky number that represents both completion and infinite possibility.
