The magic is in the connection

We know there's magic in people, and also that there’s a special kind of magic created when they come together in groups.

 

But it doesn't just happen by accident.

The secret of unleashing the magic in groups is rooted in both ancient wisdom and modern research.

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”

Better for people 
Better for the planet

We didn’t invent this stuff.

We aren't the only ones who know it.

We all (at some level) believe that humans are meant to connect; to live and work together in groups and communities. But the sad reality is that it's still rare for people to feel a deep belonging in the groups they're part of.

 

We mostly live in a highly individualistic society, where we're conditioned to think we can (and even should) survive and thrive alone.

The people we work with believe there is another way. A better way. A way that taps into and unleashes the true power of the collective.

Community

"We could have been anything we wanted, yet our free-floating individualism has taken us far from community, contribution or connection, the very things that truly give life meaning and purpose."

Margaret J. Wheatley

Connection

"Every one of the social and psychological causes of depression and anxiety, they have discovered, has something in common. They are all forms of disconnection."

Johann Hari

global human connection

Inclusion

"Difference is not the problem. It's the solution."

Marvin Weisbord

Belonging

"To feel a sense of belonging is important because it will lead us from conversations about safety and comfort to other conversations, such as our relatedness and willingness to provide hospitality and generosity. [....] These are two elements that we want to nurture as we work to create, strengthen, and restore our communities."

Peter Block

Learning

"Through learning we re-create ourselves. Through learning we become able to do something we never were able to do. Through learning we reperceive the world and our relationship to it. Through learning we extend our capacity to create, to be part of the generative process of life"

Peter Senge

Founded on the premise that meetings are mostly sh*t!

We want to offer something that unlocks the potential in these meeting spaces. Very few people are doing it.

If we give people tools and training they'll use them...

We publish books, deliver training & share other resources we  create. 

How naive we are.
