For the past nine years, we have known we have work to do together in the world.
We dabbled in collaborative service projects here and there, but had yet to feel that powerful and profound “YES”…until now!
HOW IT HAPPENED…
Soaking in a 106°F mineral bath next to the Colorado River in early 2017, we spoke of a bathhouse model we had recently heard of, and a ripple of possibility passed between us. It was one of those moments.
In a way words can’t quite express, the idea of bringing Soak to Boulder spoke to a deep longing in each of us—for nourishing and impactful work, more access to water, and the desire to build a community asset all while really taking care of ourselves. We were each navigating major transitions in our fundamental ways of living, motivated by both desire and undeniable necessity.
A vision started flowing freely and we began spouting ideas of how to steward it forward. In that moment, we fell deeply in love with Soak and knew we were destined to bring it to the people of Boulder.
This stream of clarity and purpose flows through our veins and beckons us each day with an aliveness we didn’t know was possible, as if everything we have done in our lives finds meaning and expression through this endeavor.
