Community is not about where we live, it’s about who we feel connected to.

Traditionally, we tend to think of our community, our tribe, in terms of proximity – those who live closest to us. Our community was thought of as the people in our neighborhood, our village, or our city.

Today, location is less important than connection, alignment and values.

Our tribe are the people who think like us, who value the same things in life as we do, or who enthralled by similar interests.

Our tribe may be in our neighborhood, or they may be spread out throughout the globe, located in far off countries.

Borders have less meaning than they used to. Now, who we are as a person speaks more to others than our backgrounds or our politics.

Is your tribe local or global? Virtual or In Person? Does it matter?
