Our Mission

Using technology we will empower a movement of connection, freedom and integrity by equipping, connecting, and inspiring those with struggles and addictions towards life giving transformation.

Core Vision

  • Heal with the support of a tribe who knows what you’re going through.  We provide a place for you to share.
  • Foster a community of respect and courage.
  • Technology is everywhere and it should also be part of the recovery process. We have created the platform to help those wanting to walk in freedom and integrity in the digital age.
  • Managing your struggles or addictions isn’t easy let alone keeping track of your progress.  We’ll give you the tools and information to help you on your journey.

Josh Kalsbeek, MA, LMFT

Co-Founder, CPO, Psychotherapist

Josh is an adventurer, entrepreneur, author, business coach, and psychotherapist. As a psychotherapist he guides people on the path of transformation from the bondage of addiction to a life of freedom. As an entrepreneur he takes that transformational journey to the world with love and big vision. You’ll also find him in the mountains climbing or hiking whenever he gets a chance.

We (Alex and Josh) get it. We have experienced the damage of living disconnected in the digital age.  Acting out to escape, numb and distract.

Isolated. Desperately trying to find freedom. Hurting ourselves and those closest to us.

For both of us, it wasn’t until we joined an honest community that we began to heal. We were accepted, learned about addiction, and applied truth to our lives. We aren’t near perfect, but we have made a lot of progress and learned a lot along the way.

We have dedicated our lives to sharing what we know about transformation, addiction and recovery with the world. We believe transformation happens in a tribe. Join the tribe to discover your freedom.
