We are a Collective of professional health and wellbeing practitioners, community builders, change-makers and ethical entrepreneurs.
We believe that healing, health and wellbeing are everyone’s birthright and we set out to facilitate these as widely as we can across our communities.
We want to support the global shift of consciousness to ensure that future generations thrive within healthy planetary ecosystems and so will their children.
We share the conviction that these times call for a deeper sense of purpose in service to each other and to all of Life. We believe that it is well-organised, empowered and re-connected people, organisations and communities who can best bring the shifts that are needed.
We are growing like a garden, organically and from the ground up, honouring the principles of Permaculture. We focus on what brings us together rather than on what separates us, and we do this by being inclusive, positive, professional, well organised, heart-centred and creative.
We have a professional approach to business grounded in conscious, heart-centred values.
We are willing to give our absolute best, inspiring others to do the same, connecting us all through what feels deeply important to us and creating a field that offers us “meaningful connection through shared purpose”.
We believe that by working together we can manifest our dreams and we are not afraid to dream BIG!

The core values of our Vision are embedded in our Logo: trust, community, wisdom, leadership, rootedness and health. The Children’s Fire is incorporated in the logo’s seven sides, with fire and light shining out from its heart: the wisdom of considering the impact of any decision on the next seven generations to come.

Our Vision is to become a Global Community Platform, a gathering place for different tribes, communities, individuals and organisations that want to choose Life and actively engage with it!
Whilst our Vision is Global, our Missions are Local:
Increasing numbers of people are choosing to take responsibility for their own healing, health and wellbeing, and are longing for more authentic ways of living, loving and being in community. Our custom-built Platform will enable them to connect with the practitioners who can best support them.
With our Community Projects we will initiate co-creative partnerships and collaborations with local groups, communities, individuals, organisations that share our vision.
We envision hundreds of BrightSky Hubs in the UK, creating thousands of inspiring empowering job/ livelihood opportunities.
We envision BrightSky to build many bridges by shining light on what unites us rather than what separates us. We aim to bridge the worlds of Professional Business and Community, the worlds of Western Medicine and Alternative Health and the worlds of Dreams and Reality!
Our Vision is to contribute to the reforestation of Mother Earth by initiating Tree Planting Projects in each country that will launch BrightSky.
‘How can we help?’ is a question we envision ourselves asking a lot. We believe that only by being in service of something bigger than ourselves we can live meaningful and fulfilled lives.

The BrightSky Founding Partners are professional health and wellbeing practitioners, community builders, change-makers and ethical entrepreneurs.
Our vision is to create hundreds of empowering, exciting job/work opportunities in the UK. Through newsletters we will keep you informed about the opportunities to get involved.
As of August 2019 about 30 BrightSky Partners are working for BrightSky.
Our Workgroups include: Directors, Website, Community Building, Marketing, Content, Safeguarding, Finance and Legal groups.
Our Ambassadors are experts in their fields. They are practitioners who have dived deep during their own journeys and have dedicated their lives to serving others using their gifts. Many are community elders who have stepped up as teachers as well as healers and facilitators, passing on the light of their experience and knowledge. We are absolutely honoured to have our Ambassadors holding space for the heart of this project.
This is our custom-built platform, which will include online profiles for all professional practitioners and change makers and their businesses. We are developing a dedicated members’ section for practitioners which will include eLearning resources and directories designed to support your business and professional development.
Our platform offers:
Attract new clients
Promote your events
Access Business Support
Connect, Support and Co-Create
For the Public
For Community Projects
For professional organisations
For Mother Earth
The inside of our logo consists of two hands gently holding a tree. Our first Tree Planting Events are planned for the Winter Solstice. Our Vision is for BrightSky to spread around the world and for each country to create its own Tree planting Events.
Besides our online platform we are working on creating a strong presence in local communities through BrightSky Hubs.
BrightSky Hubs are run by BrightSky Partners and Founding Members.
BrightSky Hubs are Community Interest Companies set up with the support of BrightSky.
Hubs will create Community Events, offer professional support for practitioners, and collaborate with other local Community Projects
Where are the BrightSky Hubs?
We are currently co-creating 7 BrightSky Hubs:
At least 50% of BrightSky’s profit will go to Community Projects. These are projects that are aligned with the Vision of BrightSky.
BrightSky will initiate and support Community Projects, with input from Founding Members. We will also support and collaborate with existing Community Projects.
BrightSky will support through funding, business support and through our network of change-makers. We have set up a work group to look into all the procedures we need to have in place before we launch to the public.
Many of us are most excited about this aspect of the project. The aspect where we will ask: How can we help?
The intention is to support BrightSky Community Projects to become self-sufficient enterprises.
Our Vision is to bring BrightSky to as many countries as possible
We are currently exploring the possibility to launch in Holland, Germany and Brazil.
Each country will have the same structure:
108 BrightSky Partners - including 21 Ambassadors
777 Founding Members
Each country will have its own Community Projects which will always include re-wilding / tree planting.
A Founding Member is someone helping us to raise the necessary funds for the further development of BrightSky. Founding Members will join the BrightSky founding Partners and Ambassadors in launching the project to the public in Summer 2020.
You can become a lifelong Founding Member by investing £222 in a one off payment.
No membership fees As a Founding Member you will never have to pay an annual membership fee in the future.
This means you will have access to all the resources and benefits available to both professional and public members in the years to come.
Close to the Fire Many opportunities to get involved in BrightSky will become available to BrightSky Partners and Founding Members. As a Founding Member you will receive a monthly newsletter keeping you informed about possibilities.
The last months have been explosive and we can only imagine what will happen from here. The more energy moves towards BrightSky, the more opportunities will come to exchange, collaborate and support.
Email [email protected] to discuss joining
Yes. It helps us if you can pay in one instalment of £222. However there are also options to pay in two or four instalments if that helps you join comfortably.
You will receive an acknowledgement email with a receipt after you have signed up.
You will receive an invitation to create your public profile. Please create a first listing for your work so we can show the world who we are and what we are offering as we grow.
You will receive monthly newsletters for Founding Members, which will include invitations to events. Local Hubs of BrightSky practitioners and partners are evolving and Meet ups are now happening in several areas.
You will also be invited to join an online BrightSky 'Mighty Network' of Founding Members. This will be a space to connect with people to share ideas and experiences and potentially collaborate. The BrightSky Mighty Network is a separate site from the platform itself.
As we develop our platform after the public launch you will be invited to give us feedback on what works for you and what else you’d like us to develop.
You can create your listing on the platform and we would love you to share about the project with friends and colleagues. You may wish to join a local Hub Meet-up if there is one near you, or you may wish to start one. There will be more opportunities to support and get involved as the project grows.
Part of our vision is to create hundreds of job/work opportunities for members.
At this moment we are already working on BrightSky with a team of close to 30 people.
From the launch in Spring 2020 we expect to grow rapidly which will create many new opportunities to get involved.
We will update the 108 Partners and the 777 Founding Members about the possibilities to get involved in the monthly newsletter.
At this moment the biggest support you can provide is sharing about BrightSky with your networks, and by engaging with us on Social Media.
We have psychotherapists, life coaches, breathworkers, sexuality and intimacy coaches, nutrition and detox experts, fitness coaches, cranio-sacral therapists, ceremonial space-holders, grief tenders, massage therapists, holistic therapists, eco-psychologists, rites of passage guides, psychotherapeutic counsellors, acupuncturists, sound healers, movement facilitators, yoga teachers, shamanic healers plus many more on board as of December 2019.
Some of our Founding Members are activists, creatives, change-makers and community-builders - people who co-create projects, businesses and movements that protect and benefit their community and/or the earth.
We also welcome people who offer business services of benefit to member practitioners, for example marketing specialists, web designers or business mentors, to join us as Founding Members. You will be close to the fire, be added to our directory and will benefit from access to all the resources and benefits we offer our members.
BrightSky will offer services in exchange for annual membership fees.
There will be two different memberships:
In exchange for a membership fee, practitioners will receive:
We will seek out companies and organisations that support our vision and our values. We will offer them free marketing exposure in exchange for Special Offers for our members
In exchange for a membership fee, members of the public will receive:
All our operational costs will be covered from the membership fees.
What remains is BrightSky’s actual profit, to be split 50/50 between:
We apply Permaculture Principles in Finance (see below)
We are funding BrightSky’s development through investments from the 108 BrightSky Partners and the 777 Founding Members
The 108 BrightSky Partners have already invested close to £180,000
The 777 Founding Members will collectively invest £170,000
This will enable us to custom build and design our innovative online Platform, develop eCourses and other eLearning content, set up our first two Community Projects, set up our first 7 BrightSky Hubs and organise our Launch Events.
We believe that in this day and age we have to be mindful about how we use our resources.
When money has a healthy place in an organisation it is in service to the organisation’s Purpose. It is a means to an end.
A few people getting rich whilst many don’t have enough to live is a very destructive use of resources, whether food, energy or money.
We are experimenting with a model that entails nobody getting rich but many becoming comfortable. The surplus of our resources will be put to best use through our Community Projects.
This is a work in progress and we will be able to update you on this soon.
