About Us


Conscious Connection is a global collective of writers, artists, adventurers and business leaders dedicated 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 purpose is to cultivate the consciousness of our readers and connect like minds to transformational ideas that can benefit our world. We’ve interviewed top performing Olympic Athletes, multiple Grammy Winning Musicians and feature a weekly column with advice from the world’s top sustainable business leaders, wellness experts and conscious lifestyle connoisseurs.

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.
