The Society for Social Health and Well-being's Meaningful Connection Project is an online community for people who desire to in greater connection and community. We are primarily here to connect us fellow humans together in small groups online to support the need for connection, companionship and safe space to share all of the life's challenges and victories. The journey is better, together.
We are gathering folks from around the globe with an interest in cultivating the energy of connection both in oneself and with others – friends, family, co-workers, and community. Authentic deep human connection.
We are supported by the members of the Society for Social Health, collective of teachers, gatherers, facilitators, well-being professionals, .. dedicated to creating experiences that cultivate meaningful connections to improve the quality of our lives.
The Meaningful Connection Project is here to support you through difficult life transitions, important times of clarity, a feeling of belonging and finally meaningful connections making a positive impact on your life and life of others.

In addition to online courses, the Meaningful Connection platform provides a simple way to communicate, connect and gather online or in-person, allowing you to create or join smaller circles inside the larger collective and find people who share similar interests, challenges and life needs.
You can find and/or create circles based on location (for ex: “Local Napa Neighborhood,”) interest/passion (like “Yoga’ community”), social groups (we love “New Dads Needing a Beer"!) or even career ( for ex: “Co-Working with Entrepreneurs” for people who want to work together at co-working spaces.)

Deep Connection: An easy way to find & cultivate meaningful friendships
Social Learning: Fun, experiential group courses that re-orient you to a better way to live and show up for others.

One of the most crucial aspects of the Meaningful Connection Project is to have the support system for us during our times of more acute need and life transition. Many circles form and programs are offered to address these needs. So many times in modern-day life we feel overwhelmed or wholly dis-connected from our most natural state of joy, ease, and belonging. Examples include:
WE PROMISE YOU, YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE! Join Us
When life feels like something is missing, or that it’s lacking purpose and meaning. When it all feels too hard, or when you sense loneliness. When you've achieved and earned, and still, wonder “Is this it?”
We are here to remind you that the missing piece is Connection.
We can be physically well (or not), mentally ok (or not), and financially secured (or not), but without being “socially well” –as the World Health Organization reminds us– we can’t be in a state of well-being.
This is why we are dedicated to the emerging practice of Social Well-Being:
“Social”: for the focus on our interactions and connection to one another
“Well”: to create a framework for what it means to be Well in the context of our social connections (friends, family, etc)
"Being”: as the grounded inner-capacity we need to find authentic connections in our relationships with others and within ourselves.
Here you will find a community committed to solving our own life-quality challenges. Those challenges were created by the dis-connected modern living norms that are filled with little to no meaningful interaction, where texting and social posts dominate our communication from our isolated boxes (home, car, and cubicle) giving us no opportunity to "be" with others regularly.
This Collective is dedicated to curating and creating content to address one of the most significant challenges of our time, “Social Wellness”, also called loneliness.
We are always seeking and working with practitioners, coaches, therapists, resources, and opportunities to reconnect with oneself and others.
Our main objective: to unite, standardize and create mass awareness on the Social Wellness "Connection" industry.
