It’s one of the big buzzwords these days, popping up everywhere from in clinical studies on longevity in the Blue Zones to being used as a cliché phrase by savvy online marketers. But what does “community” actually mean? Let’s break it down, shall we?
Commune - 1. to converse or talk together, usually with profound intensity, intimacy, etc.; interchange thoughts or feelings. 2. to be in intimate communication or rapport:
Unity - 1. the state of being one; oneness. 2. a whole or totality as combining all its parts into one. 3. the state or fact of being united or combined into one, as of the parts of a whole; unification.
The feelings of loneliness, isolation and overwhelm are dominating our culture. There are many studies detailing the mental and emotional toll that loneliness is having on people. And you may be feeling this too, big time. Especially if you’re an entrepreneur, where burnout and growth-at-all-costs are too often used as excuses NOT to get together in person to share ideas, inspiration, resources and positive energy.
We want to offer you a positive, proactive solution. A chance to get together and get R-E-A-L with each other. To discuss our greatest hope and dreams, scariest challenges and get clear about how our work can truly impact the lives of others (not just giving it lip service on social media!)
Lately (even in the wellness industry) there are a lot of unsavory tactics, strategies and plans. Too often a lot of “influencers” and “leaders” in the wellness biz are using the same tactics that big corporate advertisers use to get you to buy stuff: feeding a perception of lack, limitation and “not enoughness”. Which feels icky and manipulative, to say the least.
To that we say,
Thus, it is our heartfelt invitation to you to become a part of a new way of doing things in the wellness business. To speak to people like they ARE enough, to celebrate their innate goodness and to do business with true integrity, authenticity, courage and heart.
Ok. Now back to the juicy bits.
Like so many of us who’ve already started our brands, you may be feeling unsatisfied. You may not say it publicly or post it on social media, but you are. Maybe you’re just flat burnt out like an old piece of sourdough toast. Tired. Knackered. Disappointed in your lack of growth or impact. Or maybe you’ve found some things that work and you’ve been doing the same things in your business over and over to keep things running at a steady pace. But deep down, if you’re honest about it, you know that you’re avoiding the very things that will change or evolve your brand to the next level.
We totally get it. We’ve been there more times than we can count. And if there’s one big thing we’ve realized it’s this:
When you get a group of open-hearted, like-minded, dedicated and vulnerable creators in a room… magic is bound to happen. It’s like the Wellness Avengers assemble for duty and nothing can stand in the way of our collective amazingness unfolding and saving the world!
If this vibes with you to the core of your soul and you want to be a part of our shared experience, you’ve got a spot at the table! Oh, and speaking of the table... have you seen the sexy pics of the dream house we’re staying at? Can you say #swoonworthy?
