💝A gift from my heart
Happy Thursday everyone!
So happy to see you back here with us for our 10th edition of the community newsletter! We love having a dedicated space to feature all the amazing things happening in the Yes Fam and are so grateful for your contributions.
Can you believe that this is our 10th edition and we are still getting such a diverse number of meetups?
This probably wins for the most creative type of meetup we have seen yet!
A relatively newly formed community has recently sprung. This is a unique community because it brings together people living at the borders of France, Germany and Switzerland. You decided to go for a walk in the park…but with a twist. To enjoy the arrival of fall, you decided to go for a walk barefoot.
Is this an experience that you would recommend?
“We had a wonderful time at the barefoot park. After walking through very cold water to start, we enjoyed the different materials under our feet and the wonderful forest. Before ending the day with hot tea and a beautiful view.”

💖 Art with Heart 2.0
A while back the Yes Fam in Bengaluru (India) organized a meetup called "Art with Heart" to show how art can bring people together to share their stories through creativity. The meetup was so successful that you went in for round 2! This meetup was not just about making art, it was about playing games, singing, and seeking discomfort.
It was so lovely to see all your beautiful artwork in your aftermovie!
“I was one of the organizers for the event and Art is something very close to my heart. It was beautiful to see participants of all ages come together, discuss their thoughts about art and create something that in someway held a part of what inspires them. The theme for sculptures was "jungle" and it was an enriching experience to see the kind of creativity the participants expressed through their sculptures.”

🥂 FiYESta Time
Did you know that our Discord Community organises several day meetups that they’ve named “FiYESta”?
This was an enormous one that took place in Berlin, Germany! October 3rd is a special day for the local community since it is their annual meetup where they invite people from all over the world to join them to celebrate the power of community. The date linked perfectly with the Berlin Iceman Red Carpet Premiere so most of you got to end the weekend with a bang! or should I say … a chill!
“This is the 3rd annual Yes Fam Berlin meetup but this time we wanted to make it special, so we planned it to be a fiyesta weekend which transitioned into the Iceman Premiere at Berlin. We had a meetup at Templehofer Feld on September 30, as a tribute to our annual meetup. A party on October 1st and a small hoke meetup on October 2nd to cool down and watch the sunset together. ❤️”

Every week we go through the beautiful stories that the community shares in our Yes Theory Fam Facebook group to highlight someone living the "Yes Theory".
📖 I wrote a book!
Kobe has always dreamed of writing and publishing a book. Inspired by our community's message and the common values we all share, he did exactly that!
He hopes that his book about discomfort will help motivate others to pursue their best lives.
