The Live Learn & Grow Logo

The Live Learn and Grow shell represents the dignity and the right of people to shelter within themselves and emerge when they are ready. It allows them solitude and time for personal reflection. It acknowledges that their journey may take as long or as little as it takes and that there is no judgment about this.
The shell also represents a home that is permanent but that can be outgrown and upgraded as the need arises.
The shell, as a living energy, can regenerate and strengthen over time and also contains the double helix of DNA within its design.
Shells represent the inner core of being that can only be accessed by quiet reflection.
