OUR WHO

We are three ordinary women doing our best to align:  align our actions with our values, our deepest desires with our realities, our Y’s with our What’s and how’s, so we can create the best version of our lives.  We came together with one singular purpose:  being able to expense self-improvement conferences and wellness retreats.  (Just kidding...but it is a plus!)  In truth, we came together to help modern citizens like us live a more intentional life with the realities and resources that are available to us.  We came together to inspire a community shyft towards more conscious living.

OUR WHY

We believe in consciousness for the rest of us.  We don’t meditate for hours a day (although we do make as much time for it as we can, just like yoga and iced coffee), and we don’t live on a mountaintop in orange robes (although we live in Orange County with a mountain of ish to get done)  We share a strong belief that the modern lifestyle should never keep us, or you, the hustlers, the seekers, and the change-makers, from finding that next-level consciousness.  We want to start a conversation about how to discover that spark of meaning and magic in the ordinary moments and also the life altering junctions.

OUR WHAT

We are a lifestyle and media company busy creating the digital magazine that we always wished for.  One where we bring together some of the best concepts in how to be mindful as we work, live, and play. One where we can learn about positive shyfts in society, culture and business, as well as the latest meditation studio in the same place.  A magazine where we can offer simple and relatable resources and guided meditations that speak to our need for creativity, purpose and belonging.  A magazine that is all about taking the smallest of steps towards a life that is aligned with our core values.
