"Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance." - Eckhart Tolle
All are welcome at Raising the Vibe! We are a non-denominational group of seekers who study, explore and experience what brings peace, joy and fulfillment to the human spirit. We strive to create, support and sustain mindful communities. Our goal is to be part of the global dialogue that encourages mindfulness in our world, our countries, our neighborhoods, as well as within our families, our closest relationships and our own hearts.
RTV started as a non-denominational spiritual book club in February 2018 with 8 members. Led by Rebecca Becker, the group soon grew to over 25 members and began a closed group Facebook page named Raising the Vibe. Through a network of friends, RTV invited an Atlanta-based author to speak at the meeting in January 2019. Thus the RTV Speaker Series was born. Soon thereafter, the monthly book club meetings morphed into the RTV Small Groups, which are more intimate gatherings with lively discussions. By the spring of 2019, the group leaders felt inspired to go a step further and create a non-profit organization with the goal of developing mindful leaders in our community. RTV’s 501c3 status was finalized in April 2019. On May 6, 2019, RaisingTheVibe.org was launched.
The RTV Speaker Series hosts four to six speakers each year. Past topics have included Non-Violent Communication, Mindful Parenting, Facing Death with Love, Releasing Past Trauma to Find Your True Self, and the Principles of the Enneagram. The RTV Small Groups select four books to read each year. When the groups are not discussing a book, they still meet monthly (except July) to explore various topics of interest. Topics and books tend toward reinforcing the themes of mindfulness, self-awareness and our inherent connection to all that inhabit the earth. Both the Small Group meetings and the larger Speaker Series events foster the development of a meaningful community and help individuals uncover their unique gifts and purpose in life. Additionally, a weekly intention group was formed by some of our RTV members. The group is based on the model put forth by Lynn McTaggart in her best-selling book, The Power of Eight.
Our goal is to develop and support mindful communities that recognize the interconnectivity of all of life. We believe that there can be no outer peace without inner peace. To state this another way, the only way to change the world is to start with yourself. To quote Margaret Mead...
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”
As a newly formed 501 C3 organization, RTV run 100% by volunteers. Donated funds will cover the ongoing costs associated with building and maintaining a robust RTV community. Currently, we are solely reliant on donations from the people who attend our speaker events or who donate through the website.
