Awaken your Tribe is about women from all over the globe coming together and building an authentic and unconditionally supportive community.
Welcome to your community.
Welcome to your tribe.
Growing up playing on completive sports teams most of my life, I learnt at a young age that in order to be the absolute best version of yourself, to thrive at an epic level, to be inspired to push yourself even further than you thought was possible, to succeed at whatever challenge you are facing, that you need to surround yourself with like-minded, positive, epic individuals who understand with every cell in their body that together, you can accomplish so much more than what you can alone.
When one persons weakness turned into the teams weakness, and we all worked together, not in judgment or negativity, but in collaboration to improve our overall weaknesses by developing each other, truly supporting one and other by lifting each other up. We focused on what we could improve, challenged each other to work harder than we would alone, and developing each other so that we could learn and grow as a unit. But in all circumstances, regardless of outcome, we learnt to celebrate our wins or losses together. Growing up in sports thought me a lot, and I am grateful everyday that my parents blessed me with this incredible gift.
Don’t get me wrong; I’ve been subject to girls’ judgment, jealousy and competition. I have also suffered defeat, loss, and pain at the hands of other girls, so I can attest to the destructive effects of a negative environment. I’ve been criticized, I’ve been talked about behind my back, I’ve even had lies spread about me by people I thought were my friends. But over the years, and not without difficulty, I’ve learnt that the only person I can control is myself, and the only person who can determine the worth I put on another persons words, is myself.
Maybe it’s an age thing, but what I know with 100% certainty is that women need other women. The 21st century has transformed the way we live, our relationships with our partners, and our relationships with other women. In other times, women came together to share knowledge, raising children, sharing of stories, medicines, and rituals. Many of us are in solid relationships, have strong men or women whom we sharing our lives with, but there is still an altruistic desire to bond with other women.
I truly want to surround myself with the most amazing women around the world. There is a tribe out there of people I could be traveling with and learning from, we’d swap stories and bring so much more to each other’s lives. My hope is that we nourish and blossom through our relationships, our experiences, and our adventures together. We all have different interest, travel destinations, spirituality, cultural backgrounds, culinary taste, but it is that same diversity that makes our tribe so unique. Just as a great sports team is made of athletes with different skills, different fitness levels, drive, experience, and ages; this too is what makes up the most effective teams. As a goaltender, I was often the observer, the one who could truly see how everyone’s strength came together on the ice to make the play; how one players speed, another players foresight to see the transition, and another’s quick stick handling skills allowed for a player to get the puck and make the final shot for the game winning goal. It took s an entire team to make that happen.
Just as it takes women from all around the globe, who have a desire to grow and come together with a shared passion, to create a tribe. Join our Tribe in a space of positivity, you and alignment as women wander with passion and fully embrace our unique experiences.
