Towards a bright and thriving future (1).png

Dear Bright Future Club Members,


We are thrilled to welcome you to the Bright Future Club Community Gathering, next Friday, on November 24th in Cologne, Germany.  Here we will share some practical information and preparation for our gathering. 


Everyone: Until we meet we would like to invite everyone to find 30 min in their week for some personal reflection. Find a comfy chair, put on some soothing music, brew your favorite hot drink, and take some time to relax while gazing out on the horizon. Feel free to let your thoughts gravitate towards any of these questions below that most ignite your imagination about the future. 


We invite you to Imagine you're standing in the year 2034, right now... 


Where are you? How does the world look like around you, and how does it feel? How does it work, and why? Consider the environment, technology, society, and political life. What kinds of changes do you notice around you in this future? Any surprises or unexpected elements you encounter in this future. What has evolved in ways you didn’t anticipate? Think about the communities and relationships in this future. How do people interact, collaborate, and support each other? Ponder about your own feelings and emotions in this future setting. What brings you joy, hope, or concern in this envisioned future? Think about the values and principles that seem to guide decisions and actions in this future world. How do they align with your current values?


There's no obligation to document your thoughts, but you're welcome to if you wish. These reflections will play a key role in our upcoming discussions.


For the founder teams: The Open Space Technology segment on Saturday morning offers a 30-minute opportunity for each founding team to lead discussions on vital challenges and topics you are facing. We invite you to prepare three engaging questions to spark in-depth conversations and to harness the collective wisdom of your peers with the goal of supporting your enterprise with whatever you need most.


Location: Address: “Am Schulberg 31, Köln, Nordrhein-Westfalen 50858, Deutschland” See our beautiful house for the weekend here. (Check-out Sunday, 11:00 (Latest 12:00))

Sleeping Arrangements: We are co-living during the weekend and there are multiple rooms that we can split among all members. We will figure out how to distribute the rooms on Friday. No need to bring any linen etc for sleeping as its all included.

I'm on a mission to guide people back to their essence, reminding them of their authentic selves. My goal is to help individuals uncover their strengths and discover the unique gifts they bring to the world. I achieve this through a dynamic blend of branding workshops and transformative psychedelic retreats.
In the realm of branding, I lead workshops that go beyond just creating logos and slogans. Together, we embark on a journey to unveil the true colors of identity, exploring what makes each person shine in the world around them. It's not just about marketing; it's about expressing the genuine essence that sets someone apart.
On another wavelength, my psychedelic retreats offer a relaxed space for individuals to delve into their inner landscapes. It's a chilled-out yet profound experience, where self-discovery meets personal empowerment. Picture it as a journey of introspection, guided by the soothing rhythms of life.
So, whether we're crafting vibrant brand identities or exploring the depths of consciousness, my approach is all about trust and authenticity. Let's uncover the richness within you and showcase it to the world in a way that feels genuine and true.
