We’ve designed a peer support model, where small groups of users work together to build and refine their new skills. In these micro-communities, users maintain full anonymity, yet have the ability to share their journal entries, start conversations about course content, discuss daily practices, and support one another’s personal development goals and growth. By engaging with other users’ content in small groups, each member is able to learn and grow, not just through their own insights and daily practices, but also through the collective wisdom and experience of the group. Research shows that sharing goals, intentions, and insights with others increases accountability and growth outcomes.
Trained moderators (“Guides”) are present in each group to offer support, encouragement, guidance, and group moderation, and to create an environment of psychological safety.
