      EVENT DETAILS
      The Generosity Effect

      The Generosity Effect is inviting you to a social experiment. We are inviting people to this live event where we will put into practice YOU becoming an active participant in making your own dreams come true, as well as contribute to other people's dreams coming true in whatever way you can that would be fun and easy for you...

      our why?

      Why...Because we can and it sounds fun! Why not us? Why not you?

      What if your dream is not a DIY project?

      (DIY=do it yourself)

      We see a lot of the "I can do it myself!" mentality, even though those living their impossible dream didn't get it alone. They know it takes many people, contacts, information and resources. This is learned and we would like to be part of unlearning this DYI approach to realizing dreams.

      Our other why. There are too many people today feeling they have no value, who believe their dreams don't matter, that they don't matter. They are disappearing from our world every day taking with them awareness, gifts, talents, abilities, connections and dreams that our world needs and that no one else on the planet has. If we are never asked we may never realize what our dreams are and that what we know matters.

      the experiment

      We started to wonder... what would happen if we put 50 or 100 or 500 people in a room together sharing dreams and offering weird random awesome resources practicing this new way to be with each other and watch the magic unfold together?

      What would happen if we didn't have to wait for a disaster, illness or hardship to be our best most generous selves?

      What if we don't have to be needy to ask or wealthy to give?

      If a space is created for the dreamers of the world free from dream dashers and nay sayers where we ask and explore, share and receive with generosity and kindness what will the effect be?

      ​We are super curious, are you?

      the event

      Our plan is simple:

      1.Create a space for generosity minded folks to come together and Invite you. Ta-dah!

      2 .Participants generously and bravely share dreams and the specific obstacle(s) to realizing that dream.

      3. Others in the audience generously and bravely share information, resources, and connections that address those obstacles.

      our big dream

      Our dream is to live in a more conscious world dominated by kindness, generosity, creativity, innovation, empowerment, inclusion, and well-being for all including the planet and all its inhabitants.

      We desire what so many others desire at this time. A revolution, a change towards a more conscious world. We each have a part to play, a contribution we can uniquely be and we believe realizing this dream and the dreams of others is a spoke in the wheel moving us towards that conscious world.

      The way we see it, the world is you and me. It's us making choices individually that ripple out and inspire those around us. If enough of us shift our mindset's and start making choices that cultivate generosity in our daily lives, encourage dreaming and asking and wondering and helping each other make it happen, the world will change.

      This is The Generosity Effect!

      So we are going to realize our Big Dream by creating programs and events that actively participate in creating the world we know is possible one dream at a time. Not the DYI way but with all of you around the world that we can't wait to meet!

      Credit: The system of naming dreams and obstacles and reaching out to those around you is inspired by Barbara Sher. Her Tedx talk, Isolation is a dream killer sparked the idea for this event! see more about her at: www.barbarasher.com
