About the company: 

Soulect is a company born out of sheer passion. We’re on a mission to improve how humanity lives, through personal development and inner growth.

The main intention of Soulect is to help those on a personal growth journey to become who they want to be and to create a life of their own choosing. That's why we've created this personal development platform where conscious visionaries find each other, form intimate Circles of 5, and support one another in their personal development journey, through ongoing, weekly meetings. The continuity of the Soulect System is what creates the magic of Soulect; the intimacy, trust, and safety within the Circles, which breeds healing and growth.

Our vision is to be in the life of every person on a deliberate growth journey, globally, within the next 10 years.
