this is about service

The people whom you serve are often members of the most vulnerable populations in the world, suffering beyond anything the average person could imagine. You can’t continue to advocate for others with zeal if you don’t serve yourself first. Serving others matters to you, and serving you matters to us. We are here to support you in prioritizing your well-being so you can continue to do your work because the world needs your service.

this is about connection

Human connection is fundamental to our mental and physical well-being. High quality connections have been shown to positively impact our physical and mental well-being, allowing us to build resilience and function at peak performance. We are here to tell you that you don’t have to sacrifice yourself for your work.

If you’re here, it’s likely that you have a deep-seated desire to serve others. So what do you do to ensure you’re able to do this work day in and day out? We know that stress and hardship are a given for everyone at some point in life - and yet - we do very little to prepare ourselves to face and overcome these challenges. At Roots in the Clouds we use simple mindfulness practices to help you build meaningful daily rituals and practices that keep you thriving!
