About Us

Our Approach

We provide opportunities that help to facilitate growth, connection and self introspection. Through various free programs, support groups and one on one connections, we help people come to a place of self-acceptance and compassion for themselves and others.

Our programs help people to feel positive about themselves, optimistic towards life and connected to the community. In this way we are a preventative measure to the dysfunction that exists in our world. When we have a positive attitude towards ourselves and others, our world begins to change from the inside out.

Our Story

We started this journey in July 2015, on the beach of Rocky Point in Port Moody, BC. There were ten of us gathered around to hold space for each other, facilitating the process of self-introspection. Conscious Connections was our first peer sharing circle, since then we have added additional groups to help facilitate personal growth. Check out our "Services" page for more info.


Meet the Team

The mandatory component for our board of directors is the "ability to see the best in others." We look at others through the eyes of acceptance, compassion and unconditional love. When we see each other this way, it helps us see the best in ourselves and together we bring out the best in each other
