Who You’ll Meet
First and foremost, you will meet yourself – the real, true, clear YOU.
In the old paradigm, I’d use this space here to feed your ego, using ‘social proof’ to show you all the other cool kids joining us at Eden. I would do this to manipulate you into feeling as if you would be missing out if you don’t attend. The new paradigm does not manipulate – we won’t use that here. Instead, we’ll remind you that you can trust exactly the right people will be at Eden with us. This is your invitation to relax into the flow and just enjoy what unfolds, together. Truthfully, you do not need to know who will be there. It’s not about who, it’s about what: Relaxing into the flow. If you need re-assurance, because our community is new to you, then check out the line-up below… we’d love you to join us, and let us know if you’d like us to add you to the list! Because, what’s most true is that, at Eden, you will meet yourself. Reflected in 88 faces.
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”~ Jim Rohn
