Sacred U: Nurturing a Global Community of Love and Connection – An Interview with Sophia Soul
Can you please introduce yourself to our readers and share a few details about your professional journey?
As the Co-Creator of Sacred U, I have the honour of laying the foundation of a global community of Love, Growth & Connection. My entire life has been led by inner guidance including the creation of Sacred U. Though I have no higher level business education, I am always guided to the right people when I require extra assistance with any aspect of creating the Sacred U.
What’s the story behind Sacred U and how was it founded?
From a place of deep sincerity, Sacred U came into being through the collaborative efforts of myself and my co-creator, Kim Neil. Stemming from heartfelt discussions, we realized that numerous individuals within our world were searching for meaningful connections but encountering significant challenges in doing so. Our journey began with the intention of fostering these connections, originating in Newcastle, Australia. However, the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted our local gatherings. We then transitioned our efforts to the online realm, where we encountered remarkable success during the lockdown period.
What does a “tribe” represent in your work?
As our online community flourished, a beautiful realization emerged: among our members, a tapestry of shared interests and desires was woven. This insight propelled us to create spaces that catered to these special affinities. These gatherings, which we affectionately termed “Tribes,” began to sprout and multiply. Our members’ voices became the compass guiding this evolution, as we sought their input on what to name these burgeoning collectives. Whilst they were ‘groups’ of people with similar interests, a ’Tribe’ is so much more. A space for members to foster connections, gain deeper understandings, and empower themselves & others. Now, when fresh souls join our community, they are welcomed to select the tribe that resonates most deeply with their own passions and curiosities.
What different tribes exist and what can people expect from them?
In our tribes, there are no boundaries to who belongs. Women and Men from around the world who have an interest in the Spiritual, Holistic, and Wellbeing areas. We offer over 30 Special Interest Tribes in a variety of fields including Personal Development, Health & Wellness, Spirituality, Business as well as various Metaphysical Practices. This family of tribes keeps blossoming, an ever-growing testament to shared passions and connections. Our members gain a lot of benefits from being a part of these Tribes including a deeper sense of connection with themselves, their purpose, and other heart-centred people, support, growth, empowerment, friendship
You organize different social events. What can you tell me about those?
One of the underlying driving forces of people all over the world is to experience connection, especially connection with other people as we are very social creatures and have gathered in community for thousands of years. Whilst the main focus of Sacred U is our online Tribes and Global Community we also understand the need for physical contact, especially after the recent pandemic. Sacred U provides the opportunity for our members and the public to gather for Local social events and meet other people in the area for coffee, lunch, or any activity that is of interest. Whilst we currently only have a few local Tribes in Australia, we are happy to assist in the formation of a Local Social Tribe anywhere in the world.
What other services do you offer?
In a deeply sincere context, a significant portion of our current expansion is dedicated to individuals in pursuit of personal empowerment and those aspiring to establish their own enterprises. We extend an invitation to all business owners to join us in Networking Magic where Entrepreneurs share and collaborate. Our array of resources includes Business Directories, Services, Courses, Classes & Events. We offer regular Inspire, Innovate, Ignite Panel Discussions that connect people from all over the world on a variety of topics. Shining the Light On Our Community is an opportunity for Guest Speakers to share their story, their journey, and their business. We also offer regular Community Connection programs for our members who are just seeking connections with like-minded people. We are also currently organising our first Harmony Fest, designed to be a 4-day online event including Virtual Stalls, Masterclasses, and Online Readers.
