About Connected

Connected is connecting leaders + changemakers in all stages to expand their purpose and impact, create community, synergy  and collaboration.

Connected is a collaborative community environment in Denver for diverse, values-focused, purpose-driven people to stay connected and cultivate relationship to one another, their contribution, path and passion, in both life and work, through in-person weekly and monthly opportunities for development, experiences, conversations, and collaboration.

Connected is for men and women who have a desire to discover their life purpose, or who are already on the mission to be and create the change they see for their life, communities and world.

Why Connected?

In our society, many of us are alive with huge hearts and visions, yet our ability to take action, to make a real impact, and to thrive is stopped, because we find ourselves daily in the “old way” of our society….like “floating silos” we can be isolated, disconnected, overwhelmed, and doing it on our own. This calls for a “new way” for our society, starting with us, in this community.

Now is the time of a NEW generation of leaders and organizations everywhere to come alive everywhere, take action, create, and thrive.

Yet, most of us leaders and creators on a mission, especially when emerging or in transition, have nowhere to go daily or weekly that is an ongoing, effective, and truly accessible community. This is NOT a new business, program, online resource, or isolated opportunity. This is the go-to safe place, the hub of resources, the reliable community, supporting the creation of a new society. Read the Founder's story HERE.

It is the way of the much-needed community, a modern-day tribe. We are all elevated.

What makes community work?

Community works most effectively with the following: leaders, structures, and common ground that foster real connection, collaboration, compassion, conversation, authenticity, the empowerment, care and encouragement of individuals, sharing, working as one, and more.

These skills are currently not, nor have been, taught, demonstrated, or practiced as the common, default, and daily human experience. It is time to see these skills come alive and be more natural for all of us. Imagine a world where more humans know, practice, and live with more of these!

I believe we can change the world if we start listening to one another again. Simple, honest, human conversation... where we each have a chance to speak, we each feel heard, and we each listen well...Human conversation is the most ancient and easiest way to cultivate the conditions for change - personal change, community and organizational change, planetary change. If we can sit together and talk about what’s important to us, we begin to come alive.
— Margaret Wheatley

Why is community so powerful?

Through the vehicle of real community, humans can not only access the fulfillment of our basic needs to connect with others, but also access the ability to grow, be elevated, productive, and thrive. Also, real community allows differences in backgrounds, opinions, ages, generations, gender to melt away. When this happens, humans are able to connect at soul and heart level. Humans harmonize, synergize, and experience oneness and all rise together from where they were. They begin to naturally express this higher energy in all their environments, transforming all others they meet, and spaces they are in.

In this space of real community, we access the opportunities of creativity, innovation, solutions, abundance, courage, inspired action, collaborations, fun, joy, partnerships and so, so much more! It is synergy. We are immersed in an incubator for all of our potential as creators and changemakers to be ignited, cultivated, expressed, and realized...faster and with ease. This is the new, Real, Evolutionary, Vital way for all of us.
