Meraki [may-rah-kee] means to do something with your soul, creativity, or love; the essence of yourself that you put in your work.
noun. The definition of a tribe is a group of people, or a community with similar values or interests, a group with a common ancestor, or a common leader.
1. done by people acting as a group.
2. "a collective protest"

Therefore, Meraki Tribe Collective, is a tribe of healers, light workers, conscious business owners and beings, who pour the full essence of ourselves, our love, creativity and soul into our work as we come together to heal the collective, to raise the vibration of the planet and help usher in the new earth.
True prosperity is brought about by people following their genius whilst working together collectively.
Basically it's like a dating site for conscious businesses to meet conscious consumers and start a conscious relationship. Businesses set up a profile and members can search the digital marketplace to find the services they are looking for and then easily connect to start a business relationship.
If you are a conscious business you will not want to be left out. You can take advantages of all the amazing tools to optimize your profile and make your message stand out to be seen and heard.
Meraki Tribe Collective is an online space designed to make it easy connect with and support other conscious people and businesses. We have created a super intuitive, easy to use platform that encourages you to market your business with transparency and integrity.
And in addition to our conscious directory, Meraki Tribe Collective features a Private Social Community that celebrates digital freedom of expression, welcomes discussions around alternative and natural healing modalities, plant medicines, sacred sexuality, building a conscious economy and all things conscious and sustainable living. It's a safe container to show up authentically, to share vulnerably, and have real conversations about creating a better world for all. You can leave your ego at the door - but bring your wisdom, your truth, and desire for real connection, conversation and transformation.
Meraki Tribe Collective, is a tribe of healers, light workers, conscious business owners and beings, who pour the full essence of ourselves, our love, creativity and soul into our work as we come together to heal the collective, to raise the vibration of the planet and help usher in the new earth.
Our vision is to create an online (and ultimately offline) community of likeminded beings committed to coming together to shift the business and marketing paradigm from that of competition to collaboration, from a scarcity mindset to one of abundance, from greed and consumerism to a generous energy exchange of our gifts where we all thrive together.
Our long-term vision is to create a real offline communal living space and eco-village with the Meraki Center for Healing and Higher Learning, featuring sustainable conscious housing and a space for our members to host retreats, workshops, ceremonies, trainings and much more.
Ultimately we plan to create a multi-use communal space that allows our members to share their healing gifts with as many people as possible. We don't just want to create ripples we intend to make waves of change.
We are planning to build communities in North Florida to start, and then expand to other areas like Peru, Colorado etc. We are actively seeking land and collaboration partners and are open to co-creating and collaborating.
To put some real vision behind the intention I even made a mock up of what the community might look like!
Meraki Tribe collective is for ALL conscious beings who desire to create a better existence for the whole of humanity. The intention is to create a space that allows us to promote a message of love, collaboration and cooperation out to the world and make an impact by being the change we wish to see.
If you create conscious events, offer workshops and retreats, coaching, yoga, meditation, breath work, share educational or inspirational content… or run any type of business and operate with conscious intent… Meraki Tribe collective is for you.
If you desire tribe and community and to attend these types of events trainings and workshops. Meraki Tribe Collective is for you.
If you care about where you spend your dollar and want to support conscious businesses …. Meraki Tribe Collective is for you!
So if you have a desire to help raise the vibration of this planet … starting with you… you've found your tribe!!! Welcome home.
You are responsible for the work you put into the world. You are defined by the clients you take on. And you can only stand as proud of the work as its benefit to society entitles you to.
I read the book Design Is a Job back in 2015 and the above quote really landed with me. I really started looking at my Digital Design Agency and feeling as if I needed to change societies schmarmy approach to marketing and advertising. I felt convicted about all the manipulation used to get people to buy and it triggered something deep within me to come up with a way to be part of shifting the paradigm. I began cherry picking my clients and made the decision in 2017 to only work with conscious businesses so I started weeding out my clients. The challenge I found was corporate 3d Matrixy clients pay really well because they are super money driven and I found that many conscious businesses don't have money, struggle with a scarcity mindset and have no idea how to establish value or a proper energy exchange for their services - particularly for healers who struggle with charging for their services - because as conscious beings they don't want to profit off peoples pain - yet they still live in a 3D world based on monetary exchange. They get to learn how to offer their services in integrity and still pay the bills.
As a result I've spent the past few years deeply entrenched in a scarcity mindset struggling with this very challenge - which drove me to get really creative to come up with a solution. It also gave me a deep empathy and understanding for the challenges of conscious businesses and entrepreneurs.
So I wanted to come up with a platform that gave them a space to create an audience and connect with like-minded souls and also teach them how to shift their mindset, establish their value and market their services with integrity and transparency. I call it empowerment marketing.
This idea to create an online resource has been percolating in my mind for years.. I've been purchasing domains for years planning to create an online directory of healers or health and wellness businesses, but it really started catching fire after sitting with Ayahuasca and have a very clear vision as to what my role was to be in this planet. I was told that I am meant to be working with conscious businesses and shifting the paradigms around marketing and business. I am the bridge.
Shortly after discovering plant medicines, I discovered Gene Keys and it kept speaking to my soul. I've been formulating this vision for about 5 years now. The concept behind Meraki is based on the messages and downloads received from sitting with Sacred Plant Medicines and my deep contemplations with the wisdom teachings of the Gene Keys.
I feel deeply in my soul this is what I am being called to create and I am trusting the universe to continue to guide me as it evolves.
I will be offering Gene Keys workshops and Business workshops delving deeply into these teaching and concepts soon. Keep an eye out on the Meraki Tribe Collective events calendar for details!
True prosperity is brought about by people following their genius whilst working together collectively.

As a business owner, you can make the choice to operate your business in a conscious way. So what do we mean by conscious business?
There are many ways a business can be a conscious business. For example, businesses that are cognizant of their impact on the environment, that utilize ingredients and materials that reflect this awareness. Businesses that treat their customers and employees in a conscious way with integrity and transparency, offering products and services that contribute to the betterment of humanity. Businesses that market using conscious marketing tactics and principles.
This includes traditional businesses we think of that are in the business of raising the vibrational frequency by offering healing services, coaching, yoga, meditation, training programs, retreat and workshop facilitators. It also includes, regular businesses, that one doesn't typically consider when thinking of a conscious business, like attorneys, real estate agents, and auto mechanics, etc… which can also choose to operated in a conscious manner.
If any of these concepts resonate with you… YOU ARE A CONSCIOUS BUSINESS!!!
I was really surprised at how often this question or something similar was asked - how do you vet the members on the site? So we decided to add it to the FAQ. Honestly, we believe in holding people high and trusting that if they are drawn to this platform and feel called to be part of it, that they are committed to operating in a conscious manner. It is not our place, nor anyone else's, to judge what's in another persons heart, nor how one defines "conscious." We've established some guidelines for what we consider a conscious business and the context of our platform. We trust that those who resonate will be drawn to support the vision and uphold the community values of integrity, transparency, cooperation and openness.
We believe you are fully capable of deciding if how you are conducting yourself in life and in business is in integrity. So we will leave it up to our members to decide when someone is out of integrity … by writing reviews of their experience. If a business gets a lot of negative reviews maybe its time to do some soul searching and get clear on your intentions and results you are generating.
When you sign up for our platform you are agreeing to abide by our "Rules of Play" and our Commenting, Participation & Review Policies. (See below in the FAQ) These agreements are simple and clear and intended to create a safe space for all who participate in our platform.
If you are easily offended by opposing viewpoints and want to control other people's right to personal self expression and free speech our platform is probably NOT for you.
At Meraki Tribe Collective, we stand for a world committed to operating from a space of love and cooperation, where everyone can share their gifts, show up authentically, and move through life with transparency and integrity. We all get to start where we are and consciously choose to do better.
We truly believe that as we heal ourselves we heal for the collective - as we choose each day to do better, to live consciously, to love with an open heart; to see the beauty in being human and choose grace; we will slowly create a ripple out into the collective consciousness of humanity and raise the vibrational frequency.
We have to start somewhere … so we are choosing to start here. To pour our love and passion into creating something of value for human kind… will you join us? Bring your gifts. Discover your genius and lets co-create a conscious economy infused with some magic.

Transparency is one of our core values and applies to our marketing efforts extra.

We currently live in a world based on monetary exchange and whether we like it or not we all have bills to pay, families to support and financial obligations - so it is fair and equitable to ask for an exchange. We know the value is there and far exceeds the price for those wise enough to take advantage of this incredible offer. We also know if you have a little skin in the game, you will be more motivated to get your profile optimized and working for your and get your content added.
Most FREE social media platforms and marketing services make their money by selling selling YOUR data and personal information to other marketers, or by selling advertising on their platform, they control their algorithms and limit your organic reach forcing you to pay to expensive advertising rates to actually get exposure, or they take a percentage of your revenues when you promote on their FREE platform. So whether you realize it or not there is always a cost associated with "FREE" when it comes to marketing.
At Meraki Tribe Collective we made the decision to profit WITH our clients not OFF them - we will NEVER sell your personal data to profit off you, we do not want our platform cluttered with ads and distractions so when people engage with your content on our platform they do so distraction free, AND we want you to keep all the revenue you generate from your marketing efforts on our platform so we do not charge a percentage of your revenue.
We decide to settle on a transparent business model that gives you a plethora of amazing tools at a very affordable no-brainer monthly exchange. We don't require a contract, so you have the freedom to cancel anytime. We feel this is a very fair business exchange in alignment with our core values of transparency, integrity, collaboration and openness.
As a business, this monthly membership exchange allows us to provide amazing tools for Wisdom Keepers to easily share their content so more Wisdom Seekers have access to resources to aid them on their path to healing and higher consciousness, and enables us to continue to find ways to add value to our offerings going forward.
Plus, we currently live in a world based on monetary exchange and whether we like it or not we all have bills to pay, families to support and financial obligations - so it is fair and equitable to ask for an exchange. We know the value is there and far exceeds the price for those wise enough to take advantage of this incredible offer. We also know if you have a little skin in the game, you will be more motivated to get your profile optimized and working for your and get your content added.
And if you truly can't come up with the monthly fee and want to propose an equitable exchange of some other kind - reach out and let's talk.
For the purpose of engaging with our platform, a Wisdom Keeper is a conscious business or service that wants to promote on our Mindful Marketplace and Meraki Social. You are someone who carries conscious wisdom, knowledge and gifts and offer related services, products, events etc. for profit or exposure that you want to share with our Wisdom Seekers.
Wisdom Seekers are here to be part of the community with a desire to connect, learn and grow.
In life we are all probably a bit of both, on Meraki you get to choose which its correct and in integrity for you.

The big question everyone always wants to know… WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME? … YOU can become an influencer, leverage your influence for good and get paid!!
If you are loving the vision and mission of Meraki so far and can think of tons of people just like you that could benefit from this platform … then this part you are going to REALLY LOVE!
We know many conscious businesses and entrepreneurs out there who are tired of being shadow-banned or out-right banned from the major social platforms. They are tired of constantly feeling like they have to defend their viewpoints and crave a space where they can connect with like-minded respectful people. They are ready for a space with simple and affordable tools to share their wisdom and find their tribe.
We think in light of all that is happening with censorship on other social media platforms timing is perfect for this concept.
One of the other things that really bothers us about social platforms is the fact that they profit OFF their users, organic reach is at an all-time low and the big platforms make it more and more expensive to reach potential clients while taking your valuable information and selling that to others.
Which is why at Meraki Tribe Collective, our intention is to profit WITH our members, not OFF our members so we decided to give up to 30% of our revenue to our members through our generous influencer affiliate program, and put our money where our mouth is.
When you join Meraki Tribe Collective as a Wisdom Keeper, you pay a flat monthly fee to access all of our amazing tools and YOU keep all the profits you generate through your marketing efforts on our platform and with a little more effort as an influencer you can turn Meraki into a passive income source… and for some of you a money making machine.
We believe in creating a win win and for all our members - the bigger our platform grows the more connections we can make for you as a conscious business and you as a conscious consumer. The more your business grows, the more transformation and healing happens… and at the end of the day this platform is really about creating healing on the planet by creating a space where transformation and healers can be easily found.
Our goal is to be the one stop shop for the conscious community to connect, engage and make the world a better place. In order for that to happen we need to make sure people are aware of our platform and all the amazing benefits that comes with being part of it, and the best way to do that is to incentivize our members to share the platform with others.
So we created the Influencer program for paying members that allows you to set up an account, get your own unique link that you can share with your connections, on your social platforms, in your email campaigns, on your websites or just text to a friend. If the friend signs up for a business profile ... YOU GET PAID!! We pay monthly and we pay residually ... so as long as they remain on the platform as a paying member you get paid. How cool is that?
Remember…. Our intention is to profit with you not off you and give you a sense of ownership in the platform!! (If this idea excites you … we have a detailed influencer video where you can get all the granular details of how the program works, and how to be a successful influencer after you sign up.)
Here’s what we do know, if we are all sharing the platform it will grow rapidly and create even more opportunities for the collective. WE ALL WIN!
With so much negativity in the world, we created this platform as a love and light encoded space to spread positivity, awareness, and awaken souls to higher consciousness. We are committed to promoting unity and love based content… deeply-held intentions to shift the fear-based paradigms so prevalent in our society.
So as you participate with the platform we ask that you do so with great intention for good. We are a very open-minded space of acceptance and inclusion. We are open to participation from any and all conscious businesses, but we ask that you use discretion with the content that you post. Please refrain from posting content that may be illegal, include excessive profanity, nudity, and things that might get the platform banned or cited.
For example, personally, we are very pro plant medicine as we experienced profound healing through indigenous medicines and we actively advocate for the decriminalization of sacred medicines for use as a sacrament and healing modalities in the United States. These medicines are still illegal in many places so it is very important you use caution when posting about such topics. You are responsible for what you post and the repercussions of your content on this platform.
Also, be sure to post only original content you own or created, and/or that you have copyright permission to use the content you share. We always want to be respectful of other's intellectual property.
Be nice! There will be many things posted on this platform as we grow, and we are sure that there will be viewpoints and methodologies that do not resonate with us and that is perfectly fine. We choose to take what resonates and let the rest go. We ask that you do the same. We are not nearly as effective in getting our message across when we try to force our views on others. So share your content, put it out there and it will resonate with those who align. Never underestimate the power of planting a seed for those not yet ready to hear your message.
Likewise, if you disagree with a viewpoint please feel free to open a dialogue but please do so from a space of love and desire to understand and evolve. It is also appropriate to agree to disagree at times or just scroll right on past.
PLEASE NOTE: The viewpoints of the articles and content posted on this platform do not necessarily reflect the viewpoints of Meraki Tribe Collective and its staff. We welcome all content that is shared from a space of love and with positive intent.
We do, however, reserve the right to remove any content that is malicious, pornographic, profane, abusive, discriminatory, inflammatory, or crude. This site is not the context for that type of content.

Reviews are an integral part of our platform. They provide valuable feedback for our community and are fabulous for SEO. (Search Engine Optimization) They help us rank better on Google and help listings rank within the platform as well.
So if you have a listing be sure to ask your friends and clients to write a review for you…. And be sure to write review for other listings that you've had a great experience with personally.
When writing reviews please check in with your intention for the review. This platform is meant to be one of high intention to spread positivity and good will. We want you to be honest in your feedback and reviews but also ask that you check in with your motivations when posting any thing that may be considered derogatory.
My mama always said if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all.
With that said, honest feedback can give businesses valuable insight in areas they can improve when delivered with love and good intentions. It can also protect the community if a provider is out of integrity and violating the safety of others. So don't be afraid to be honest and authentic, but please refrain from posting out of anger or fear based intentions.
Also, it is very important to only write reviews for businesses you have actually done business with personally.
Let's focus on what's good in the world and creating an amazing community experience.
