A New Era of Human Thriving

one·ness

the fact or state of being whole, unified or connected, though comprised of two or more parts.

Welcome to The Oneness Company. 

We're championing a new era of human thriving, rooted in the power of connection. 

Humans are social beings optimally evolved over millions of years to connect, create, and celebrate together as one. When we fail to truly come together, we suffer individually and collectively.

This is real, measurable suffering, not just historically, but today.  If you need more than your own experience to convince you, consider this:  Key data show epidemics of workplace disengagement and social isolation and alienation, driving not only rising suicide, addiction, and disease rates, but also poor creativity, reasoning, burnout, and turnover measurements. 

Seeing this in our own lives and those of our friends and family, we were compelled to take a stand and fight for something better.  So welcome to our rebellion, the one where we recognize that culture is also a verb and get busy culturing. 

Our mission is to promote mindful face-to-face human connection in businesses, conferences, schools, churches, and homes around the world.   We aim, with your help, to cut workplace disengagement and suicide rates in half by end of 2029.   

Today, this may sound crazy.  Yet, look at what the internet did in 20 years, and the smartphone in 10.   And even if we fall short, we will undoubtedly make some of our human family better off.  It's our sincere hope that you, your loved ones, and your team mates, we'll be among them.

To this end, we share with you on this website our key insights to achieving greater levels of human connection.

Connection-Oriented Communications

What's The Greatest Technology For Creating Human Connection and Community?

 Hint:  It's Not This VR Headset. 😀 Scroll on for the answer.

Our Greatest Connection Technology Is Eye Contact.

Imagine if your phone dropped calls every 3 seconds.  Not so good.   

Eye Contact Works The Same.  Every Time You Look Away, You Break The Connection.

Connection Is More Vital Than Diet and Exercise To Our Wellness

 We humans are hardwired to belong to tight-knit social groups, because our survival in prehistoric times required it.  Loners and outcasts didn't live long or even reproduce. So, if we sense connectedness, a sense of belonging, our brains release oxytocin (the bond or trust hormone), and we feel good.   Sensing disconnectedness, we release cortisol, the stress hormone, and feel fear and pain, like a survival instinct directing us to reconnect.  Yet, our modern ways make it easy to mask, tolerate, and indeed survive prolonged disconnection.  Only now, are we starting to understand how this type of stress is taking its toll on our well-being. 

"Loneliness is a growing public health problem—a hidden epidemic threatening our well-being, and even our livelihood. One-third of Americans over age 45 feel lonely, according to AARP"

Loneliness Impairs Brain Function

“At work, loneliness reduces task performance, limits creativity, and impairs other aspects of executive function such as reasoning and decision making.”

"If we cannot rebuild strong, authentic social connections, we will continue to splinter apart ... We must take action now to build the connections that ... ensure greater health and well-being for all of us."

Vice Admiral Vivek H. Murthy, the 19th Surgeon General of the United States, from 2014 to 2017.
