What is this CoJourn thing?

CoJourn is a personal growth and goal achievement program that trains pairs of people to buddy up for more external accountability, connection, and support as they go after their big goals and dreams. The program helps you finally prioritize what matters most to you, while connecting with a partner you choose for mutual support and accountability. For more info, visit our About CoJourn page

How does it work?

  3. Set an Intention you want to work on for a sustained period of time (3 month, 6 month or 1 year program options)
  4. Using our formula and program structure, check in with your CoJourn partner for 30 minutes each week.
  5. Record goals for one another, offering each other compassionate, non-judgmental support along the way!

Who is the program for?

The program is for anyone who feels like they could use some more follow-through, purpose, accountability and / or personal connection in their lives.

  • Self-help devotees
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Artists
  • Academics
  • Students

Participating in CoJourn can be especially helpful during times of life transition for people who would like increased connection and support through the process.
This program is also for people looking for increased happiness! A recent groundbreaking research study has found that the #1 predictor of happiness over a lifetime is having a close, positive relationship with vulnerability and depth in which you can be seen who you truly are, and truly see another. This is exactly the type of relationship that is cultivated by participating in CoJourn. Read more about the study HERE

When is the right time to get started?

You will always be busy.
Start now.
You can find 30 minutes a week to prioritize you. And we promise, you will be glad you did. With that said, the program can be great to help with focus and balance during:

  • start of new job
  • start of school year
  • during or after a move
  • when you meet a new friend you want to connect with
  • when you want to reconnect with an old friend or family member
  • any transition period

What does it cost?

One of our missions for this program is to provide a tool accessible to all to help with follow through on a single life direction for one year. So, rather than requiring people to pay, we have a “pay-what-you-decide” pricing model for accessing the basic program materials and monthly email support. We also have a sliding scale fee for the in-person launch calls, or coaching calls as well.

Once you give it a try, you can decide the value, based on your experience and offer a contribution. So there is no obligation to pay anything if you are not able, or did not find value in the experience.

Do I have to commit to a full year?

No, this program should be for you and for what you need it for. We created the program as a way to keep a new years’ resolution for the entire year, and were blown away by how much movement we could make on an intention by continuously coming back to it over that length of time. For this reason, we recommend trying it out for a full year. However, if you are hesitant to commit for that long a period of time, three or six months are also useful chunks of time to be able to build a strong relationship with your CoJourn partner, and begin to see real change.

How much time does it take each week?

We recommend setting aside a full 30 minutes a week for the check-in. Most people find this to be a suitable amount of time to have an in-depth call with someone while still keeping the project sustainable even in the busiest times.

What would I get out of it?

Close to fifty interviews with past CoJourn participants reveal numerous benefits of the program, both related to follow-through on goals, and also building a closer relationship with someone else. A few repeatedly mentioned benefits include:

  • Sustained focus and follow-through on something you want in your life
  • The benefit of slowing down and taking time for weekly reflection
  • A closer relationship with another person who knows about your life
  • The gift of learning from the struggles and successes of your partner!
