We had the good fortune of connecting with Christopher Mack and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Christopher, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
Our work creates a space for individuals to explore what is holding them back from becoming their best version of themselves. We create a safe space for processing old wounds and traumas, thereby freeing individuals to become more authentic and free. This work restores dignity and self-confidence within their expression of life.
What should our readers know about your business?
Our business evolved slowly and is continually evolving because of its dynamic nature. Life is always about a state of becoming and our participants dictate the growth and needs of the community. Each step along the way has been revealed to us because we are a service organization providing service for the well-being of humanity. Helping people to go inside and utilize the resilience of their own life to become better functioning human beings is our goal.
The lessons we learned were to be flexible and courageous and to just take the next step. We went from live weekly groups to writing a book, to creating webinars, to individual coaching.
Our greatest joy is when we see the transformation of the individual; smiles where there were none, hope and optimism which had been abandoned by the individual, and a releasing of things that kept them in bondage to themselves.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We believe everyone should do a tour of Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles for many reasons. If you want to see community in action, it is the best place to witness compassionate, caring individuals making a difference in the world. If you ever want to know the greatness in any society, look to see how they treat the underserved. There is much work to be done, of course, but the resilience of an individual shows up here as they navigate the social injustices. There is a deep humbleness within the homeless population as well as people that take care of each other. They learn to honor and protect each other while fighting the chains that bind them.
The creativity is amazing and resourceful with community choirs, (The Urban Voices Project), artist studios, and theater.
Although most would not choose this tour, we guarantee it will change you forever.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
The organization of Alcoholics Anonymous for providing an outstanding opportunity of discovery of self.
