The WELL community is all about connection - coming together to support each other, learn new things, and grow as human beings - we hope you join us!

THE WELL MISSION
The WELL is a community of heart-minded people who connect, gather, laugh, learn, and grow. We are unified and inspired by the power of connection and healing in all its forms. In this communion, we find strength and direction to make positive change in our lives and to take conscious action to create a just, equitable and greener world.
WHO WE ARE
We are a heart & healing based community group made up of health & wellness practitioners, artists, activists, parents, energy workers, teachers, intuitives, small business owners, therapists, environmentalists, spiritual counselors, yoga teachers and social workers (to name a small few). This heart & healing based core mission inspires everything we do from how we post on Facebook, to how we gather and connect, to how we engage with the wider community and the world. We invite all community members (or "WELLians") to live with awareness, compassion, and respect for all people and the earth.
We are a welcoming community and fiercely embrace diversity and inclusivity. We're not all the same, and that's our biggest strength. We believe that inequities must be acknowledged at The WELL, in the wellness field, and in the larger world. We respect the earth as our home and recognize that its sustainability connects us more deeply to ourselves, and the natural world.
WHAT WE DO
We offer three "buckets" (as in filling your personal bucket at a well) to strive towards our heart & healing based mission
BUCKETS to The WELL:
HOW IT STARTED
In April 2017, Amy Kay & Wendy Durham noticed there was a need for connection among health care & wellness practitioners who often work alone. They wanted to create a community where practitioners could connect, share, gather and find support. Since then, The WELL's private Facebook group has evolved to include not just practitioners but anyone with a heart & healing focus who is interested in building a community of Wisdom, Energy, Light and Love (WELL). The WELL has hosted over 45 monthly gatherings and we now have over three hundred incredible WELLian Members.
In 2021, WELLian Meredith Cooley joined the team, and The WELL took an important step further - the social change component was added to the WELL's mission - to use our collective light to take conscious action towards a just, equitable, and greener world. Learn more.
We welcome and celebrate the unique contributions that each member brings in terms of culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, body size, veteran’s status, color, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, socio-economic status, healing practices, faith and beliefs. We're not all the same, and that's our greatest strength.
