Bonfire Tribe is a discussion space about personal change, responsibility, spirituality, and action to create a world that works for all of life.
We ask the questions:
- How do we create a world of justice, beauty, connection, belonging, and vitality?
- How do we make choices in how we work and live today to move in this direction?
- What does vitality mean? What does it look like? Feel like? And how do we create it for ourselves and others?
- How do we be a part of creating a bright future for all in the midst of societal, economic, spiritual, and environmental crises?
- How does faith or the absence of faith in a larger reality influence how we live?
Bonfire is a place of inspiration and community for people who aspire to help create the world we know is possible.
To explore the role of the individual and community in creating a world of vitality, justice, and well-being for all of life.
A world where people thrive in rich communities in harmony with the natural world.
Engage, imagine, and evolve in the effort to support the emergence of a just and beautiful world.
Bonfire Tribe Founder
Sarah is an innovative business leader, executive coach, and group facilitator. She has worked at executive level leadership positions for over 12 years and in marketing for 16 years, plus many additional years in customer service.
As a leader and communicator, she builds community, meaningful connection, and cultures of growth and excellence. She has also created and led the implementation of visionary strategic plans and has created innovative HR management programs to optimize small business operations for team cohesion, individual satisfaction and successful business outcomes.
Sarah is a certified Executive Coach and specializes in helping her clients to expand their capacity to operate powerfully in the world through deepening their own developmental potential. As an executive and entrepreneur, she understands the courage, resilience and wisdom required to be a powerful leader of an organization, large or small. She facilitates group coaching programs, as well as individual coaching engagements. She is certified through the prestigious New Ventures West organization, where she is also adjunct faculty.
Sarah has developed an innovative and powerful 6-month program for women’s leadership development, The Women’s Wisdom Course. This course facilitates each person’s unique journey to find their voice, power and internal wisdom. This course helps participants to find their own center or foundation from which to develop into their true potential, creating shifts in personal and professional lives. This course can be powerful on its own with groups within organizations, community groups, or individuals, as well as an adjunct to a 1:1 coaching engagement.
Sarah started her career in Developmental Biology as a researcher at UC San Diego, later moving into technical sales and marketing of robotics used in the Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical industries. After earning her MBA, she began a small business to experiment in creating a people-centered business model that respects, supports and nourishes each individual involved, including employees, customers, management and the greater community. Her café (and satellite locations) became a deep and flourishing community, which she eventually sold to pursue her deepest passion – community and leadership development. Leadership development within her company was always Sarah’s highest priority, because she understands that individual empowerment creates positive team dynamics, as well as great execution of business priorities.
Sarah is concurrently the Development Director of a music therapy nonprofit, which is also community-centered and focused on developing individual human potential. As a Development Director, she is responsible for revenue generation through multiple streams and is a unique opportunity for Sarah to explore the confluence of connection, community and the creation of a sustainable business model supporting individual growth and inclusion for marginalized populations.
Sarah believes in the importance of powerful leadership, authenticity, vision, resilience and courage to create a beautiful world for us all. These are all skills and capacities that can be learned and deepened into. We already contain the raw ingredients of wisdom and courageous action. We only need to start on our own path of discovery to know it to be true for ourselves.
