We all struggle. We experience emotions that overwhelm us. We have inner critics pointing out our imperfections. We may feel stuck or disconnected. And what makes that struggle so much harder is the story we tell ourselves that we are in this alone.
Our unlikely path to self-exploration will lead you to learn and grow alongside people you might not have otherwise met but who often help you feel more understood than ever before. Hearing from others in a fun, collaborative format can help you reframe self-defeating judgments and embrace your whole story in new ways to help you live more fully and connect deeply with yourself and others.
“It was so good to feel connected with others and connect with my inner self.”
“It's a space to have a heart-level conversation, that can prompt you to step into a richer, more resilient life.”
“My favorite part of each is that spark, that moment when everyone has an insight and then suddenly feels the power of being in it together.”
“I didn't know what to expect, but it was the most authentic and powerful Zoom I've ever been on.”
“So deep and so uplifting to connect with people we had not met before. Brilliant!”
“I am changing and liking myself and my reactions to others so much better. You opened a whole new world.”
It all starts with an unlikely conversation.
Guided by a facilitator, we gather weekly to explore meaningful questions, discuss concepts and principles for pursuing and maintaining a more connected and fulfilling life, and learn practical tools to help us on our way.
You will be encouraged to "try on" new perspectives, question how you think about yourself and others, build habits that support emotional health and well-being, strengthen your relationships, and boost your capacity for more expansive ways of showing up in the world.
