Show Notes

In this episode, I chat about the conscious community I'm now a part of as well as creating. On the heels of 2 years of this crazy global situation we all find ourselves in, it's a conversation worth having. 

Humans are social beings, and the need to belong is deeply ingrained in our nature.

Belonging to a group or community we can identify with helps us develop a stronger sense of personal and collective identity. It can also give a boost to our self-esteem and to our willingness to take on the world and make our dreams happen. But the importance of community goes beyond that.

So, just why is community important? To answer the question we can look at what happens if we don’t have community we can call our own. Since we’re inherently sociable beings, feeling disconnected from others can deeply affect our self perception and emotional health.

Indeed, some studies have linked the emotional strain of loneliness caused by social isolation to physical illness, including sleep disorders, heart disease and a weakened immune system.

In this episode, I share a bit of my own story around creating a new collaborative freedom community. I also got real as to how the past 2 years has created a lot of break down in many people's relationships and why we SO need each other!
