Written by Jessi Kohlhagen

When it comes right down to it, we’re all social animals looking for a sense of belonging.

And though we are undeniably ‘more connected than ever before’ as a global online community, it’s plain to see that at the ground level, in the day-to-day flow of life on Earth, many of us are missing that foundational sense of belonging to a soul tribe that is so intrinsic to our human experience.

We all want deeper meaning, connection, and fulfillment — and we yearn to share the burdens and joys of daily living with a tribe of people whose soul values are aligned with our own.

Are you ready to deepen your connection with your planetary brothers and sisters?

Here are 36 affirmations to elevate your social life, and attract your soul tribe:

How to Build Community: 47 Simple Ways

Are you searching for your dream tribe of extraordinary soul-friends?

We all yearn for the deep sense of belonging and wellbeing that can only come from being an integral part of a larger community.

Yet when it comes to actually finding or creating community, many of us are left scratching our heads wondering how on earth people do it.

This begs the question…

How can we consciously create our dream community, and our greater vision for our social lives?

And while there are countless social strategies, tips and tricks you can explore, we hope this sweet & simple article serves as a reminder of three powerful social premises:

1. Extraordinary relationships require you to be an extraordinary individual first (you have to create what you want to be a part of)
2. You can always grow, right where you’re planted
3. Making friends is often so much simpler than we make it out be

At Lifebook, we believe that cultivating conscious community is not only possible for everyone — it’s a vital part of human health, happiness and life success. More…

Lifebook Loves: Burning Man!

Somewhere in the middle of the impossibly flat, life-less and visually stunning deserts of northwest Nevada, a small group of amazing humans construct an entire city for 80,000 people… And then, it disappears without a trace less than 30 days later.

This year marked our first-ever Burning Man experience… and we were absolutely blown away.

Burning Man attracts artists, musicians and dreamers from every corner of the globe for a week of awe-inspiring, soul-stirring, mind-expanding artistry, self-expression and love.

Simply put, Burning Man is the most extravagant display of human creativity and potential that we’ve ever encountered (and that’s saying a lot!)

One of the most fascinating parts of the experience was that it’s a completely non-commercial event — which means no buying, selling, branding, or marketing of any kind. Everything is 100% FREE and gifted with love from members of the community.

We’ve never witnessed such a joyful display of experiences that lift the human spirit, address social problems and inspire a sense of culture, community and personal engagement.

If this is something you feel called to, you may want to consider experiencing it at least once in a lifetime!

See below for some of our favorite moments from our 2018 Burning Man experience (photo credit to our dear friend and fellow Lifebooker, the incredibly talented Warwick Saint).

As always, thank you so much for reading and sharing our journey!

With all our love,

-Jon and Missy Butcher

How CBD Will Change Your Life

CBD seems to be a big buzzword these days. From tinctures and vape oils to skincare products and bath bombs, it seems like everything is infused with this new “miracle medicine.”

So what exactly is CBD, and what makes it so amazing?

CBD is short for Cannabidiol, which is a compound found in cannabis plants. There are over 100 different cannabinoids found within the plant (THC being the most famous for its ability to get you “high”).

Unlike THC, CBD has no psychoactive effects, is 100% legal, and is currently revolutionizing the world of medicine as we know it.

CBD is truly one of the most remarkable compounds in the natural world.

According to research, cannabinoids synergize and help support humans’ built-in Endocannabinoid System (ECS). It was in 1992 that scientists discovered that the ECS plays a direct role in homeostasis, which regulates every metabolic process in the body, such as pain sensation, appetite, temperature regulation, stress reactivity, immune function, and sleep, as well as other processes. Even more interesting is that muscle and fat tissue also utilize these receptors to control their processes.

So basically, CBD communicates with our body’s main command center to keep things running as they should. Pretty amazing.

Claim Your Power by Taking the High Road

By Jessi Kohlhagen

We’ve all experienced the weight of regret after reacting impulsively to a challenging situation.

In the heat of the moment we’re often compelled to do or say things that feel necessary or satisfying at the time, only to look back and agonize over the fact that we made a bad situation much worse with our carelessness.

We’ve all experienced the other side of the coin as well, and felt the glory, grace and liberation that comes from taking the high road.

But what, exactly, does it mean to “take the high road?”

As Laura Markham so eloquently puts it…

“The high road is love. The low road is fear. Always choose love, as often as you can.” More…
