It has been a remarkable journey so far towards the grand relaunch of the Panic to Freedom Program. As you probably recall, we posted a video a month or two back called “Welcome to the Beginning”, all about what Panic to Freedom is about and what we’re trying to create.
Actually creating it has been a little more difficult than it first appeared.
One of the reasons why is actually because we want to do it “right”. By “right” what I mean is to do it the way that it deserves to be done, to provide Panic to Freedom for you in a way that is a big beautiful ball of transformation and love, with amazing tools for growth and a full package with 1000x the value than what it was before, rather than it looking like it was slapped together with bits of scotch tape and glue to try and rush it out the door as fast as possible.
For almost all of 2013, we had been slipping further and further into anxiety instead of freedom, having some very rough luck along the way. We originally launched Panic to Freedom last February, right around this time actually, but at that time there were only 2 people working on it, and we were quickly overwhelmed by the initial success of the program, and we dropped the ball. (With hundreds of customer support emails per day asking for help, as well as us being the programmers/marketers/social media guys/animators/and editors… you could imagine why).Â
All around it appeared as though everything was falling apart. While it didn’t necessarily look like a huge collossal mess, sometimes it definitely felt like it, though our persistence and morale continued on. Many of our projects seemed to get neglected and fall by the wayside. As I look back, I’m actually really happy that it did. It shed light on all of the old paradigms and stories that we were living by that we then would get the opportunity to rewrite, and create something new from its ashes.
One thing that we have come to has been the realization that it’s rather difficult to create anything when you’re in a space of anxiety or panic. Sometimes, we need to solve that anxiety before we can take even grander steps. Panic to Freedom is a pretty big step, and our goals with it is a colossal undertaking that we know can have a huge impact in the way of the world.
In desiring to do Panic to Freedom the “right” way, with a dedicated team and some really fun times, we’ve decided to make it happen in person. We want to come together with everyone we’re working with in person to make it happen. Programmers, video editors, server people, marketing people, we want to get everyone together at a spirit house somewhere in nature and really turn it into something incredible!
While that is the goal, we’re just not quite there yet. We don’t yet have the resources to be able to connect with everyone so far, and so we’ve switched directions and set our eyes upon a few smaller projects. One of which is the Spirit Science Website. We recently moved it onto our own server, and have been tinkering with it the past week to get it working smoothly and properly. That’s a long story and i’m sure in a few days i’ll post an article about it on the Spirit Science Website.
And so, the Road to the Relaunch feels like it’s extending a bit, but not without good reason. I’m going to continue to keep you posted on what’s been going on, and how everything is flowing!
