The Connected Vision

heading 1

A world in connection

The ConnectEd has the vision of a more just world, where all people are free and equal and can live THEIR free and vibrant lives and fulfilling relationships according to their own values and needs - not just a few.

 

Connect Beyond Biases

The ConnectEd stands for a new kind of connection beyond the chains, frames and boxes of the norm towards ourselves and others - as the essence for a more just world, in which all people are free. 
A world in which we can meet ourselves and others beyond bias, in common humanity, in which there is a deep awareness of our interdependence and interconnection, so that social and global justice are unavoidable. And it all begins within us.

The Power of Connection

The ConnectEd trusts in the power of deep, non-judgemental, bias-free, honest, present, and mindful connection beyond the chains, frames, and boxes of the norm, as the miraculous medicine that enables us to live liberated lives, fulfilling relationships, and common humanity.

"Without the fundamental change in human consciousness, the suffering in the world is a bottomless pit."
Eckhart Tolle

The Connected Mission

Your journey to your individual liberation

The ConnectEd is your platform for personal development, self-empowerment and spirituality, which accompanies you on your journey to your individual  liberated life and empowers and inspires you in Coaching, workshops and content.

Your unique space for connection

For this purpose, The ConnectEd creates a unique, empowering space in systemic Coachings, in which you can easily find your own answers beyond the boxes, frames and chains of the norm, go out and create your liberated, lively life and fulfilled relationships in harmony with yourself.

It`s a Movement: No one is free until all of us are free

Reaching people worldwide in three languages, The ConnectEd contributes to connectedness and liberation on a collective level through personal transformation. With your coaching you become a part of this movement.

Let's challenge the norm together

Reframe instead of Reproduce: In our conditioned thoughts and dominant cultural conversational behavior, our focus is on constantly reproducing the norm and on pressing ourselves and others into boxes, frames and chains in thoughts and conversations.

The ConnectEd creates an awareness that we have the boxes, frames and chains of systems such as patriarchy, neocolonialism, racism, sexism, ableism, lookism, classism and other -isms in our thoughts, feelings, bodies, words and in our actions  towards ourselves and other people and reproduce them. The ConnectEd empowers individuals to choose for themselves, what it means to live liberated, vibrant lives and fulfilling relationships.

It's time to REframe: REthink, REfeel, REembody, REname, REact

 

There is no outer liberation without inner liberation, no outer change without inner change

The ConnectEd contributes to liberation on a collective level through personal transformation. With your Coachings you become part of this change.

Your free life begins in your thoughts, feelings, in your body, in your words and in your actions. By living it you set everyone else free, as you see yourself and others through the eyes of liberation.

We are all on this journey together

The "Ed" in The ConnectEd stands for Educate in the sense of inspiration, transformation, empowerment and growth on the journey to a liberated life. And for the awareness that we are all on this journey together, inspiring one another and and growing together.

"By seeing me, I see you.
By connecting to my light, I connect to the light in you.

By liberating me, I see you through the eyes of liberation."

Hey, I'm Alina Wagner (she/her) founder of The ConnectEd and I accompany people in Coachings worldwide on their journey to their liberated life.

 

What moves me:

The values of connectedness, freedom and justice move me and I believe that the path to true liberation leads through connectedness beyond bias to ourselves and others.

My greatest pain was always the social and global inequality and I thought that change starts on the outside. That's why I specialized in development cooperation and studied political science at the Otto Suhr Institute of the Freie Universität Berlin, an institute that is known, among other things, for training people in socially critical thinking. After a time in Brazil and Argentina, I found out for myself that oppressive systems, such as neocolonialism, are also reproduced in development cooperation.

 

I had my awakening during a sabbatical reading Eckhart Tolle's book "The Power of Now" in Colombia. It said: "Without a fundamental change in human consciousness, the suffering in the world is a bottomless pit" This sentence moved me deeply and made me realize that change on a collective level begins within us.

I started to wonder how I can contribute to change these oppressive systems on the inside in order to change them on the outside, how I can contribute to the freedom of other people through my own journey of liberation. And I realized that the path to true freedom and justice is through connecting beyond bias to ourselves and others. This is how the mission of my heart came about: to bring connectedness beyond biases into the world.

I began to study different disciplines to embark on my journey to liberation and today I combine collective liberation and justice with the individual liberation within us. Because today it is clear to me that there is no outer change and liberation without inner change and liberation.

For your greatest transformation and to make your journey to your liberated life  the best, I combine powerful methods for the first time: I am a systemic personal and business coach (Coaching Academy Berlin), diversity and anti-bias trainer (A World of Difference), political scientist (M.A., Otto Suhr Institute, Freie Universität Berlin) and trained in Nonviolent Communication.

With this I accompany people worldwide on their journey to liberation and open a unique, powerful space, in which people meet themselves beyond the boxes, frames and chains of the norm and easily find their own answers, go out and create their own liberated, lively life and fulfilled relationships in harmony with themselves.

Let's start with you!

Besides The ConnectEd I develop and support projects, that bring about an individual and collective shift in consciousness towards more connectedness, justice, unity and compassion, such as Connected Beyond Bias and Changemaker Communications.

I look forward to accompanying you on your individual journey to liberation!

 

Let's challenge the norm together!

 

Changing the world from within:
There is no outer liberation without inner liberation.
No outer change without inner change.
