On September 24th, 2022 SoderWorld turned 25 years old. For a human lifetime that's still young, but for a business to survive 25 years is a major accomplishment. It is a testament to the heart, soul and determination of the Soderholm Family and the entire SoderWorld community.
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step." ~ Lao Tzu
In 1997, co-founder Misty Soderholm took the first step to open SoderWorld's doors. 25 years later we celebrate this incredible success story.
The evening's atmosphere started with positive energy, catching up with good friends and enjoying the beautiful garden.
The next part of the evening our guests gathered on the labyrinth to start the celebration of honoring the many years of service to the community.
Next, was a guided meditation and a Sound Journey led by Dreamweavers Collective and medicine songs by Soul Lullabies.
We took a break between music sets to honor co-founders Eric, Ginny, Misty and Chahé Soderholm. We spoke about the past 25 years, where we are at now and where SoderWorld is heading for the future.
Then is was time to Rock Out featuring original conscious songs by the Great Mystery.
Finally the evening concluded with the celebration of the birthday of co-founder Eric Soderholm and a song for Ginny Soderholm, "A Prayer for your Life".
What's an incredible event. It's made all of the blood, sweat and tears through the years worth every moment. Thank you to all whom made this evening something special.
