THE DIGITAL MAGAZINE FOR CULTURAL CREATIVES
Conscious Connection is a global collective of writers, artists, adventurers and business leaders dedicating to making an impact doing what we love. We’re committed to helping people achieve their potential and have a positive impact in the world.
We were founded on the idea that outward change begins at the inner level. Our mission is to cultivate the consciousness of our readers and connect like minds to transformational ideas. We’ve interviewed top performing Olympic Athletes, multiple Grammy Winning Musicians and feature a weekly column with advice from the world’s top Impact Entrepreneurs, Sustainability Leaders and Wellness Experts.
We complement this mission driven content with eco-luxury lifestyle articles ranging from the most sustainable dive resorts in the Galapagos to where to get the best farm-to-table food in Stratton, Vermont.
Thanks to our mission-driven approach to media, we’ve had a social reach of over 20 million people in 2019.

We tell the stories of the people that are changing the world every day from the bottom up. Our aim is for our collective experiences to inspire you in the pursuit of your own dreams and impact goals.
