109 World is a 501(c)3 public charity dedicated to changing the norm we are seeing in the world of people’s dissatisfaction, unhappiness and unfulfillment with their lives and jobs. 109 does that by designing and hosting retreats (and other experiences) that inspire personal and collective transformation, ensuring participants have a new sense of purpose and connectedness with their lives and the world around them.
We believe that while you can’t always control your circumstances, you can control how you respond to them. We are all less able to handle the challenges that come our way, or contribute to alleviate the challenges our world is facing, when we’re already depleted by physical and emotional exhaustion. Or, put in a more positive way, we are more resilient and more able to handle life’s challenges when we are feeling our best mentally, physically and emotionally. You can only give as much love to the world as you have for yourself. Taking this to heart, the goal we are always striving to achieve with our community is to empower and remind them of the influence and impact they can have in their own lives and on our planet.
Our Mission is to help individuals fulfill the promise of their potential of living a happy and meaningful life through personal growth, purpose, empathy and mindfulness.
Our Vision is of a world where all individuals live their lives with the understanding that the greatest sense of happiness and fulfillment comes from care for oneself matched with empathy and care for our planet.
Our mission is to empower and remind every participant of the influence and impact they can have in their own lives and on our planet.
