our story

What we believe in.

After over a quarter of a century of being fully engaged in the social justice movement, we found ourselves feeling defeated. Despite years of marching, protesting, fighting the systems and often each other for the cause, we kept seeing the same headlines, and hitting the same roadblocks, again and again. We were trying to dismantle power, but we weren’t coming from a place of power in ourselves.

Our social and political disempowerment became personal, as well. From depression to addictions to financial problems to toxic relationships, we all found ourselves drifting further from our potential. We realized that we had to search out the cause. We found there to be a conflict in our consciousness. Psychologists refer to this as cognitive dissonance. In other words, our self awareness was not merging with our social awareness.

We decided to change that.

Over time, we began to see our social consciousness and self awareness as one. As a result, we became physically healthier, began healing relationships with ourselves and others, found new love, outgrew addictions and became better and more present parents to our children. We also began to breach divides with people we never thought we would understand, and found common ground in a vision of human solidarity.

In essence, we began to live fully in our power.


Love is seeing the best of ourselves in others. Love empowers us to authentically connect with the human family.


Clarity is the supercharged feeling we get when we tap into an understanding superior to all our previous understandings. 


In order to begin to create meaningful change, we must come from a place of honesty and vulnerability. Acknowledging where we are as individuals and confronting the impact of our current conditioning takes courage and self-reflection. 


Connection is the compassion we feel for others that empowers us with the ability to relate to what they are experiencing as our own experience.

Why does the SFG focus on creating human solidarity?

We focus on creating human solidarity because when we’re true to ourselves we work better, love better and live better.

What is the greatest obstacle to creating human solidarity?

After 30 years of experience, we have come to understand that our greatest obstacle is negative subconscious programming, or what we call "toxic groundwater." Our toxic groundwater causes us to fight against ourselves and others, which works against the formation of solidarity.

Why is transforming the toxic groundwater so important?

Experts tell us that only 2 to 5% of our daily lives is controlled by our conscious mind and the other 95 to 98% is controlled by our subconscious mind. Toxic groundwater negatively impacts 95 to 98% of our lives. This is why it so important.

What does it mean to be an equitable leader?

It means you practice equitable leadership. You see, hear, and connect with those you lead in such a way that they know they matter, and their contributions are appreciated.

Why does SFG teach about ending racism?

Racism currently serves as a primary barrier to human connection and undermines effective leadership in our society.
