This community is built to enable self-actualization. More than just a place to hang out and blabbermouth, this is a call to transform your life. Make your life count, seek the profound, inspire others to do that same, and die with a smile on your face, knowing you lived well.

Self-actualization is a nuanced attitude towards life.

Here are our community values -- the things we care about most:

  • Practical, no-bullshit, results-driven personal development
  • Self-improvement as a way of life

  • Authenticity/Honesty
  • Developing awareness & mindfulness
  • Emotional awareness & mastery
  • Understanding of diverse viewpoints, treating them with all with equanimity

    • Black & white thinking
    • Superstitious thinking
