What we're about

Holistic Heart people live in the Portland and Vancouver metro area. We offer peer mentoring around business and marketing challenges that health and wellness providers face. We provide safe, confidential space to support and challenge each other in order to grow healthy, sustainable businesses. You are welcome to join if you (1) are a member of the Holistic Chamber of Commerce and (2) have, or are in the process of starting, a holistic health and wellness-related business. You are welcome to attend as our guest for one to two meetings. We hope that your Holistic Heart Meetup experience will encourage you to join our powerful and supportive Holistic Chamber of Commerce community.

MEETUPS + SPECIAL EVENTS

Our weekly meetups are 1 hour. The meetup format is modeled after the “Lean Coffee (http://agilecoffee.com/leancoffee/)” meeting format, a structured, but agenda-less meeting. Members gather, build an agenda, and begin talking. Conversations are directed and productive, and diverse topics are addressed in a timely and meaningful way. Because the meeting agendas are democratically generated, your voice is heard. Everyone pitches topics or questions. We vote and then spend 5 minutes on each. Setup takes less than 10 minutes and we share asks + offers at the end. Members will also hold each other accountable for action items as part of our supporting each other in moving forward. On occasion we may focus in on specific, relevant topics requested by our members so that we can offer a deeper dive.

We also host barn raisings (collaborative work days), networking lunches, power-up learning sessions, informational events AND help promote each other's events.

ONLINE SUPPORT + COMMUNITY + VOICE

In addition to our Holistic Heart meetups, the Holistic Chamber of Commerce will be launching a private member’s forum where members from any Holistic Chamber of Commerce chapter can post questions and join in on conversations.

MANIFESTO

The Holistic Chamber of Commerce stands for excellence among holistic, complementary, alternative, and sustainable professionals, practitioners and businesses. The Holistic Heart Meetup group is a powerful community, supporting each other through the challenges and opportunities of being an alternative health and wellness provider outside or on the fringes of the mainstream healthcare system. We believe that the power of working together as a community is a vital part of building our own successful individual businesses. We believe in the power of accountability and pay it forward when possible: extending offers as well as asks. We value each other’s and our own time. We treat each other and ourselves with respect, dignity, trust and keep all conversations and data shared in confidence.
