Selomon

Selomon, born Christopher Closson, grew up in a religious family and knew what it was like to feel bad for having different spiritual beliefs and inspirations to change the world. He began Project Bring Me 2 Life on an adventurous journey of self discovery and wanted to bring a community of like-minded people together. 
After a series of miracles and many stories to tell, Selomon met Shannon and began to really see the divine vision of what the Bring Me 2 Life Network should be. Along with Shannon, they created the podcast to be a safe space to talk about everything they’ve learned through life. Selomon hosts and offers a variety of events, services, and content through meditation, sound healing, and more. You can learn more about him at www.Selomon.com
