Turtle Tank: School for Radical Purpose

(AND Don’t miss our FREE VIRTUAL CLASS on Radical Purpose below)

Turtle Tank is a radical modern-day mystery school where we ignite Radical Purpose, support the evolution of consciousness and harness creative power to bring forth worlds of Radical Love and Freedom.

Our aim is to reintegrate old and new wisdom into practical tools to revolutionize all of our diseased human systems and evolve into worlds of ever deeper balance.

At the School for Radical Purpose, we focus on three core paths:

Radical Creators: looking to co-create a fulfilling and impactful life and desire-filled work by rooting in their unique radical purpose through a nature-based creation process aligned with sacred ritual

Radical Entrepreneurs: looking to co-create a radical enterprise rooted in their unique radical purpose and desire-filled work as sacred ritual to contribute to just and balanced systems of well-being and wealth.

Radical Leaders: looking to ignite and amplify the purposes of others through radical forms of teaching, leading and organizing towards worlds of love and freedom.

Intro to Radical Purpose

(SIGN UP BELOW)

How rooting in our Radical (life) Purposes can guide us through this time of crisis and evolution towards a world of radical love and freedom

With Samia Abou-Samra and Ije Ude / Co-Founders of Turtle Tank: School for Radical Purpose

Radical Purpose ignites our unique, sacred power and value on this earth. It is what instinctually and inherently drives us to survive, thrive, evolve and contribute to the collective. It is our core guiding force on the evolutionary journey to worlds of ever greater love and freedom.

In this free virtual class…

We will share: why each person’s unique Radical (life) Purpose is the (often underestimated) core source of power, creativity, well-being and wealth for our communities

We will also share: how knowing and living into each of our Radical Purposes - our inner evolutionary compasses - can guide us towards our collective evolutionary potential.

We will also, also share: an introduction to the core practical and intuitive Radical Purpose framework and tool we use to reveal evolutionary insights and create lives, relationships, work, projects, enterprises, communities and worlds of radical love and freedom.

You will walk away with: a powerful exercise we use to ignite and reveal our Radical Purpose statement - a declaration of why we are here and what sacred, unique work we are here to fulfill.

This class is for Radical Creators, Radical Entrepreneurs and Radical Leaders looking to (re)align with our unique Radical Purpose, design our work and life as Sacred Ritual and create lives, relationships, projects, enterprises and communities of collective wealth and well-being.

Why Radical Purpose?

We are each here to evolve through a journey of fulfilling and expressing our Radical Purpose. Radical Purpose is the lens through which we experience our evolutionary process.

From examining our Radical Purpose, we learn who we are, why we are here, how we work, what our gifts and wounds are, how we heal them and what we’re made of (when the sh** hits the fan). Our journey through Radical Purpose drives us to know ourselves and our potential and with that knowing, learn how to co-create our world anew.

Radical Purpose reminds us of our unique, sacred power and value on this earth. It is what instinctually and inherently drives us to survive, thrive, evolve and contribute to the collective. It is our core guiding force on the evolutionary journey.

At Turtle Tank, we say that Radical Purpose is our unique, individual, internal compass that directs each of us through effectively navigating our personal journey of transformation and evolution towards our fullest collective potential.

And when we each root in our unique Radical Purposes, we create a movement of transformation that honors the sovereign evolutionary process of each individual. And that honoring contributes to a collective evolutionary process guided by radical love and freedom. We create the conditions for the emergence of a world that no single culture, group, system or human being could have imagined alone.

Each individual’s unique purpose is the community’s source of value, power, well-being and wealth. We define Freedom as the ability of each person to know and fulfill their unique purpose on this earth. We define Love as the fullest expression of our purpose.

Through Radical Purpose, we are driven and guided by the mysterious creative force of the universe into worlds of radical love and freedom.

TURTLE TESTIMONIALS

HOW WE WORK / WHAT WE TEACH

We, Ije and Samia, the co-founders of Turtle Tank are on our own journeys of healing, self-discovery and evolution. Our work is to learn the graceful dance with the mystery (aka the universe), to understand the process of creation and our responsibility and power in it. We investigate the most effective ways to co-create purposeful, fulfilling and impactful lives for all towards collective balance, well-being and wealth.

From that personal work, we’ve created a community of Sovereign Learners to teach and learn with.

We are not a conventional mystery school, nor do we belong to a specific lineage as a school though some of us are initiated in our respective foundational cosmosystems. We bring a diversity of lineages together, in conversation, towards our collective human evolution. We are still (and always will be) students on the journey of life with our dear mentors and teachers.

We teach our own wholistic, nature-based frameworks inspired by our personal creative, healing and transformational journeys. Our work is rooted in metaphysics, somatics, human development, consciousness evolution techniques, ecology and natural systems, radical entrepreneurship and economics, afro-indigenous and other indigenous cosmosystems and radical, queer people of color creative & artistic processes.

We are also in the process of bringing our own mentors and teachers to the Tank to create and share their transformational and evolutionary teachings. Right now, we are preparing our community of Sovereign Learners and our infrastructural space for those teachers. What we teach at this time is foundational for all that is to come.

As a community, we practice (re)aligning with our unique Radical Purpose, designing our work and life as Sacred Ritual and creating lives, relationships, projects, enterprises and communities of collective wealth and well-being.
