WHAT IS THE HUMAN GATHERING?

The Human Gathering is a private community, filled with incredible humans. We have reimagined community and taken it to a whole new place.

WHY DO PEOPLE JOIN THE HUMAN GATHERING?

Our members join our community because they are looking for a safe place to connect with other humans on an authentic level. Our members are ambitious, busy people. Our Curation Connections™ process allows our members to meet dozens of amazing people, without having to lift a finger. Our Concierge Service is available to our members year-round to assist in solving any personal or professional obstacle they may encounter. Unlike every other private community out there, our members actually save time by being a part of The Human Gathering. Our members form real relationships, do business, grow together, and make a real impact in the world. 

WHAT ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF HUMAN GATHERING MEMBERS? 

Unlike all other communities for ambitious individuals, we do not care about your job title or how many letters there are after your last name. The number of zeros in your bank account doesn’t matter to us at all either. In The Human Gathering community, integrity is more important than wealth; and, character is more important than influence. Simply put, we look for “Awesome Apples''. And our community is filled with them.

WHY WAS I INVITED TO JOIN THE HUMAN GATHERING?

If you have been invited by our Founders or team, it is because we think you may be one of us. Our team looks for specific traits and behaviors which signal that a person may indeed be a fit for our community. While many of our members learned about The Human Gathering through word-of-mouth or in some other way, our Founders and team actively look for potential members. We do this to ensure that our community is always diverse and eclectic. If you have been invited, take the invitation seriously. You were invited for a reason.

WHY IS THE HUMAN GATHERING'S MEMBER LIST PRIVATE?

To have a safe place in the current world much must be protected and members need to feel their names and data are secure. The Human Gathering is a truly safe place in a world where few of those remain. Additionally, we never leverage the names of our members in order to attract new members. Our Founders believe this would violate the sacred trust and safety that our members have placed in us.

HOW DO YOUR MEMBERS STAY CONNECTED YEAR-ROUND?

Each membership lasts for 365 days. Over the past 8 years, we have developed a unique, proven process that allows us to discover which of our community members can most support each other in their lives. Throughout the year, our team curates dozens of connections for each of our members. In The Human Gathering community, our members find new friends, business partners, investors and so much more. These Curated Connections™ are hand-picked by our team. A great deal of thought and energy goes into each and every one of them. 

Our members also have the opportunity to participate in more intimate experiences and gatherings. Many of these experiences and gatherings are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. To see press coverage around one such experience, simply Google “Martha Stewart Global Seed Vault”. Coverage may be found in Fast Company, Page Six, Fortune, Afar, Bon Appetit, and other major publications. And since each membership lasts 365 days, our members stay connected year-round. 

Our team spends an exceptional amount of time and energy ensuring we are a truly connected community. The Human Gathering was founded by leaders who know the importance of community. These same leaders understand that time is our number one asset and connections and community must be organized to be successful.

WHAT DO YOUR MEMBERS SAY ABOUT THE HUMAN GATHERING?

Our members say things to us like: “I have a new best friend in my life, because of this community”, “I found a co-founder for a new company I want to start”, “I now have all the connections I need to make my biggest dream into a reality”, and “I’ve been looking for a community like this for over a decade and had almost given up on finding it”.

The Human Gathering community is incredibly special to our team, our Founders and all of our members. Our members know they can trust each other. They get access to any resource they need, through their fellow members. And they are surrounded by like-minded individuals who inherently understand them, as well as the way they see the world. 

WHAT IS A RANCH EXPERIENCE? 

Conveniently located just 90 minutes from an international airport, we have discovered a true sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. Our private wonderland welcomes our members year-round. Sprawling across the valley of majestic acres and surrounded by protected wilderness, our oasis serves as a safe place for our members to come together and connect in authentic ways. 

Each member has the opportunity to customize their all-inclusive experience at the ranch, as their calendar permits. Our members enjoy their own private cabin at the banks of one of our 19 spring-fed ponds. The cabins also have room for our member's guests of choice. Each member has the ability to utilize the ranch year-round for professional connections and or personal opportunities. The ranch experience is included in membership.

The intimate atmosphere at the ranch leads to real relationships being formed. We share our greatest dreams, our darkest fears and discover ways to support one another in our greatest passions - the mark we want to leave on the world.
