New book release!
Good, and You?
Why is connection, vulnerability, and support so damn hard sometimes? How can we have more access to each other than ever, and still be so lonely? What will it take for us to open up about the things that actually matter?
If you’re ready to start working towards a new normal, this may be the book for you. Build your raft. We'd love for you to be a part of ours.
About the Founders
We created this community first and foremost because we needed it! We live by this quote from vulnerability oracle Brenè Brown, “If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can't survive.” We really hope there’s a way to change the paradigm for connection in our culture. This project is our attempt to do just that.

I love you. Now excuse me while I go scream from the rooftops about The Raft Project! Because we the people need it.
