 Re Connect 

Weaving depth and meaning

- one letter at a time -

Bringing back the practice of writing letters.

Connecting through authenticity, meaning, and trust.

Everything you need mailed to you

Inspirational prompts, audios, videos

A mindful, embodied practice

Monthly community online gathering

A heartfelt way to connect

Letter writing is the most personal and deep way to connect

with others and to be seen. There is a writer inside each of us

who awakes fully through ink and paper.

There will be no ReConnect Summer season in 2023 due to our Magic France retreat.

The registrations for ReConnect this year are in March for Spring and in December for ReConnect Winter 2024.

A few words about the values ReConnect is based on:

Access inspirational materials each month (audio, video, prompts, discussions...) and receive a beautiful package with everything you need to write one letter every month to a kindred member of the Re-Connect community (even the stamps are on the envelopes!).

What is Re-Connect?

BEING PART OF A HEART-CENTERED COMMUNITY

You write and receive letters within the ReConnect community. What you write is a thought or reflection on life following our monthly theme, and you send it to the persons on the list provided to you (one person each month).

This process allows you to write freely and authentically, to invite trust and synchronicity. During the monthly online call, you have the opportunity to see and hear other participants and be part of a supportive community.

SENDING MAIL

Invite a simple slow-living practice into your life! You will have a flexible structure to support you in creating a monthly practice of slowing down and writing from your heart.

All stationery paper and cards are sourced from independent artists, small businesses or antique stores. Your participation supports creativity and connection, and the packaging uses recycled materials whenever possible, and minimum plastic.

The mixed media card you receive each season is an original piece of art made by Francine.

Each seasonal package is unique and curated specially for the season - the packages of the same season might be different depending on the demand and quantity of supplies available.

  • What do I get when I sign up?
    You will receive a package containing stationery paper, notecards, three stamped envelopes, and three to six envelope seals and stickers. You will also access the ReConnect online platform (integrated into this website), where you will find our monthly themes, prompts, inspiration, guest interviews, and embodied practices. You will be invited to our monthly call hosted on Zoom (recorded if you can not participate live). All online content is available on the first of each month, and you will be notified by email.
  • Can I join anytime?
    Because of the seasonal nature of this program, you can only join Re-Connect when registration is open. The packages are mailed on time before we start, and the program is structured around a specific schedule. To not miss the registration time, be sure to be on our newsletter list (sign up at the bottom of this page)!
  • When will I receive my package?
    We mail using the USPS First Class system, and it might take a few days or weeks depending on your location - the US Postal Service has experienced delays over the last years. Packages are lovingly processed and sent in time for you to receive them before the first of the month when the program starts. If you leave outside of the US, we suggest you register early so we can mail your package first.
  • To whom will I write every month?
    You receive the names and addresses of three other participants in your package, and you write to one each month. The stamped envelopes you receive reflect the location of the people you write to (US domestic or international stamps).
  • I live outside the US, can I join?
    Yes! We are happy to welcome you in the Re-Connect community! We frequently have participants from Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia. The only difference with your package is that we can not pre-stamp your monthly envelopes, and you will have to place your own stamp on each envelope. In exchange, we are not charging more for mailing your package outside of the US. (All communication is in English and you are asked to write in English).

The Story Behind ReConnect

 

At the end of the Summer 2020, in order to break from the draining and superficial pace of social media and to connect with others in a deeper way, I decided to send a letter in which I shared personal stories and reflections on life. Overtime, this letter was sent to over a hundred people each month. What started as an experiment became a monthly embodied practice and a process of re-connecting in a meaningful way.

 

A few months later, I participated in the 100-day project and chose to send a card or letter to people who would give me their address - most of them strangers. The amount of synchronicities and common threads between what I wrote and people's own experiences was amazing.

 

I received so many messages from people telling me how they loved to take the time to open my letter with a cup of tea, savoring a moment of peace and reflection in a quiet environment. Each message helped me realize how precious and heartfelt this process is.

This really made me want to bring back the practice of writing letters, and make it easy for others to invite it in their life. It is so much more than writing on a piece of paper: it is a true and authentic way of being present, listening, and reconnecting both with ourselves and with others.

It is such a joy to create these beauty-full packages, send them to each participant, and bring this program to life!
