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!
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 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.

Whilst our Vision is global, our Mission is 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 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!
We initiate Tree Planting Projects and aim to help people to do this all over the world through BrightSky.
We encourage all our Members to become Earth Protectors and are exploring different ways in which we can support the legacy of UK lawyer Polly Higgins.
‘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.
BrightSky Community - Meaningful Connection through Shared Purpose
We have two places where you can chat online with other BrightSky Members, find out who is in your area, ask for support and share anything from insights to offerings.
There is a Facebook BrightSky Members Group,
And a Mighty Networks Group where people like to dive deeper into a Facebook free conversation
This is our custom-built website, where you can have your own public profile.
Once your profile is complete you can create Practitioner, Business and Creative Listings for each of your offerings.
Your Listings will appear in searches so new clients can find you. You can also post your Listings URL in social media for people to click on.
We are also developing a dedicated members’ section for practitioners which will include eLearning resources and directories designed to support your business and professional development.
We will keep you up to date with important news, events and offers through our Newsletters. You can sign up here.
Once you join as a Member you will also have access to a regular special Members' Newsletter.
You can also create Listings for your own events. Both Members and non Members will be able to find you in their searches.
Besides our online platform we are working on creating a strong presence in local communities through BrightSky Hubs.
BrightSky Hubs are run by BrightSky Members set up with the support of BrightSky.
Hubs 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.
We actively seek out to collaborate with already existing Community Projects that are aligned with our vision and values.
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.
We are working in partnership with Earth Protectorstosupport the legacy of Polly Higgins, ensuring that Ecocide will be recognised internationally as a crime and we aim to become a resource for change-makers in professional organisations like corporate companies, NGOs and governmental organisations.
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.

The BrightSky Founding Partners are professional health and wellbeing practitioners, community builders, change-makers and ethical entrepreneurs and are actively involved in shaping and building the community.
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.
BrightSky offers products and services in exchange for monthly or annual membership fees.
All our operational costs will be covered from the membership fees.
What remains is BrightSky’s profit, to be split 50/50 between:
We are developing a business model which can benefit many people without only one person becoming rich in the process and where the surplus of our resources will support Community Projects. We use the term 'permaculture principles in finance'.
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.
