were looking for a symbol that emphasizes the process of growth. we want to host the atheist, the christian the buddhist so bridging people of disparate ideologies is a value however we dont want an image as concrete as a bridge. we'd be more inclined toward something that shows fluidity like a fluid membrane, neuron, web, relational interconnectedness, perhaps an organic visual metaphor, something of an organic emergent nature.
as i said we want to emphasize the PROCESS of GROWTH, a growing process, a nurturing process that not only includes the spring times but also the winter bareness of existence sometimes. descriptive words we like nurturing, tending to a garden, the elements of garden such as roots, soil seed, depth, nurtrients needed. but we dont want something as cliche as one tree.
We dont want explicitly religious symbols.
Please feel free to experiment with colors.
Organic, but not cliche please.
