Find Your Tribe

When I was young – ahhh! – my friends and I created a wonderful community of creative, adventurous people. We had so much fun together! We were learning all sorts of crazy esoteric stuff, sharing books, playing instruments, and cooking together.

Then I moved to a different city, got married, gave birth to my three children. We moved to Germany, then to the US and I disconnected with my community of friends.

Is your story a little similar?

In this video, Cecilia and I share how to start creating your “tribe” in a new place. You will also learn what to do when you can’t find any group of people where you want to belong.

A sense of belonging is one of the natural human needs, like food or shelter.

At some point of our life we ask ourselves: Where do I belong? With whom I can share my joy and my pain? Who understands me and accepts me as I am? Who do I dance my tribal dance with?:)

Research shows that a sense of belonging improves our motivation health, and happiness. So why to wait! Join the Conscious Global Living community now!

Finding your tribe in a new city or country is a process. Don’t rush, cut yourself some slack. Appreciate every step that leads you to meeting and connecting with people. With time, you will build your wonderful community or may be even several.

And if you’ve already discovered your tribe, please share with us how you did it? What is your advice for other expats who are struggling with finding their community?

Please, go to the comments below the video and write down your thoughts and ideas.

In our free newsletter we will post some useful links for finding people with the same interests as yours. Sign in with your name and email so we can sent them to you.

Live, love & create across the globe!
