Our Stories Connect Us All.

We live in a world more connected than ever yet more disconnected than ever. How do you invite more people into your life? Fact: Connection outside yourself starts with more connection within yourself. When you begin owning and sharing your story you create trust and a common denominator for the right people to connect with you, right on time.

In a world of swiping, liking and tagging,  Strangers To Friends offers facilitated face to face experiences for you to meet new people, who also want to meet new people.  Our Non-Networking approach challenges you to lead with you!
No filters, expectations or judgement allowed.

 Step away from the screen and step out to be seen.
Understanding vs Empathizing.
Compassion vs Comparison.

Be open to new people, perspectives and possibilities.

You Deserve it! You Are Enough.
