Sonder Club Community Guidelines

Last Updated March 25, 2021

 Welcome to Silk + Sonder - a safe space to build long-lasting self-care rituals to create time for what matters most: you. 

Below, you will find a note from our founder and our values. We also include a set of guidelines and rules that help us not only create a safe space that promotes intimacy and acceptance, but also allows us to foster conversations that allow for personal growth. 

 

As a reminder, Sonder Club is a place for: 

💫 Clarity - Unlock mental clarity through insights and inspiration from your #sonderfam.

💖 Compassion - We cultivate a safe space to be compassionate towards yourself and others.  

🎉 Connection - Connect deeper with yourself and others through thoughtful conversation and support.

🎨 Creativity - Nurture your curiosity and ignite your inner creative.

 

Why We Created Sonder Club: 

We wanted to build a social network that was inviting, uplifting, and trustworthy. A space that rewards you for living happy, healthy lives offline and online - a place where you could be truest self without worrying how others will judge or respond to you. Sonder Club is a community where we heighten our self awareness by inspiring ourselves, supporting others, and celebrating our shared commitment to grow our own, unique ways. We are encouraged to learn from each other but also accept to have different perspectives on life. 

“Our community is a safe, uplifting space for authenticity, belonging, and growth through our journals and beyond. We celebrate, accept, and support each other regardless of our differences in values, beliefs, and backgrounds - this what makes our #sonderfam special and Sonder Club magical. I can’t wait to meet you.”

- Meha, Founder & CEO
