The key resides within you - an empowering approach to pain, struggle and disruption

Our breakdowns dismantle old ways of being in order to discover what was missing all along. Our breakdowns are strong signals for individual and collective shifts. 

Our individual distresses act as an alarm system, clueing us not only into a deeper level of self awareness, but signaling broader structural and systemic problems whose complexity surfaces in our experience.

By sharing these signals we begin to resonate with the themes that run beyond polarity and reductionist thinking and that we can collectively use to develop new ideas, insights, and solutions to broader challenges.

The wisdom within our distress is the key to both deeper self compassion and conscious global activism. 

Our Philosophy

Your distress is a driver of success, not a barrier to it.

Your personal and professional lives are inherently connected.

Your individual experiences carry critical insights to solve broader collective challenges.

Hey, I'm Meg Mateer.

 

One of my biggest life teachers was my experience of depression. I'm now on a mission to help you discover the world changing wisdom within your distress.  

My Story

Three years ago I quit my management consulting job, moved abroad and founded my own company. 

I did this fueled by the wisdom, energy and power sparked from my own depression. (Yes, you heard that right ;) ). 

I realized that many of the smartest, most interesting innovative thinkers and leaders are the ones who have embraced their distress and used it to share their truth, start new projects, and transform their connections.

I believe that if we want to change this world that is breaking down, we have to start listening to the wisdom within each and every one of us. That's why I started this project.

My work is informed by 15 years of learning from psychology, personal development, anthropology, my work as a facilitator and coach, inspiring stories from my podcast guests, and my own life experience as an ambitious professional discovering the wisdom within my own depression and anxiety (two of my biggest teachers).
