I’ve attended events, conferences, retreats, seminars and service projects: I have had these epiphanies, self-realizations, experiences of pure service, presence and connection, and then I will go home and feel this ‘event high’ for a week or so, but sooner or later I begin to feel isolated and unsupported, fall back into old habits, and I’m suddenly right back where I started.
“It is impossible to make lasting changes without support.”
There are countless people striving to stay committed to their personal growth, stay connected to their own potential, and failing to keep that connection going because they do not have a supportive group of like-minded people they can reach out to for help and encouragement.
TheJourneyInward.com will provide support and inspiration for people who are looking for more meaning and connection in their lives. We will create and support a community of people that are interested in going within. This will be a place where people can contribute and benefit from the lessons of their peers; where introspective people can feel like they belong; where people can find other like-minded individuals to connect with, and get support on whatever they’re working on. Have philosophical discussions; join a support group around health, or facing your fears, or relationships; find a friend who will hold them accountable to their commitments to themselves… in short, a place where we can journey inward, together.
How it works
People visit the site looking for support and inspiration. They read the quotes and personal stories others post and are inspired and moved by them.
They can then add their own favorite meaningful quotes (brainyquotes.com) and share personal stories (chickensoup.com), or add comments to other quotes and stories.
These quotes and stories act as a gateway into the support system: They can see how many contributors are available for support teams or accountability partnerships, then send an invite to all the people attached to a particular topic or category to be in a related support group.
The support groups are organized systems that allow individuals to create and manage groups & relationships (like meetup.com or supportgroup.com), receive notifications, set goals & events, have conference calls or chat room meetings and discussion groups on an ongoing basis.
“Helping someone else is often the fastest way to help ourselves.”
This will be a place where you can connect with like-minded individuals and receive help and support around your own personal journey. If are interested in or inspired by this project, please support us and help us build a place that will support and inspire all of us.
