Cosyland is the project to build a new type of social network: It connects real, on the ground communities of people who work on themselves to heal and nurture their capacity to cooperate sincerely.
In Cosyland you can connect with others who you can trust to share a commitment to healing themselves and practice deeper awareness.
And you can find on the ground communities of likeminded people around the world.
Cosyland also supports you with finding holistic coaches, mentors, and workshops to help you healing and developing your own capacities for cooperating sincerely.
And Cosyland supports organisations with finding consultants and tools to help improving your cooperative practices and culture.
A real trust community
Cosyland is a land made of trust. It is a place where we can turn off defense mode. Therefore, it is an essential element that you can trust everyone who is there.
To ensure that, there is a process for arriving in Cosyland, which involves being part of a real, on the ground community of people who work on themselves.
For those who are not yet embedded or comfortable in such communities, there are the Cosy Sailors: People ready to support anyone on their journey.
This way we make sure that everyone in Cosyland is a real person and capable of taking up our common responsibility to make everyone feel cosy :).
The Cosy Marketplace
Within Cosyland, there is the Cosy Marketplace. It works a little different to normal marketplaces. You can offer things for Cosycoins, our own internal currency.
But you cannot buy anything for your Cosycoins. Instead, you can share your needs. And then other people can use their Cosycoins to make you a gift according to your needs.
Likewise, you can use your Cosycoins to make a gift to others, simply by browsing through the needs that they have shared.
The key is that this practice of giving and receiving is not transactional. You make your gifts unconditionally, and others are making gifts to you unconditionally. And the good thing is that Cosyland is a safe home, where we can just try out how this unconditional giving and receiving feels.
The basic income
Every human person who arrives in Cosyland starts receiving a basic income in Cosycoins. For this, we cooperate with the Circles Project. You can spend these Cosycoins by making gifts on the Cosy Marketplace. And you can earn Cosycoins for offerings things or services and for making active contributions to Cosyland.
A Common Ground for Mindset Shifts
All in all, Cosyland is an open, common ground where we can find (and find out) what we need to unfold our cooperative human nature (Cosy stands for cooperating sincerely).
The landscapes of Cosyland are collectively shaped by the diversity of communities and organizations who join this common purpose.
A place where we can turn off defense mode
In Cosyland we share a wish to free ourselves from the pressures of “modern” societies. Instead of competing for status, money, likes etc., we cooperate to produce meaning, connections, and safe spaces for all who arrive.
By aiming to sincerely be ourselves – and at the same time respecting everyone else being themselves as well – we create protection from the pressures of distrust, judgement, and forced insincerity that we often face in our current societies.
Because we all contribute simply by daring to our drop defense mode, we can create spaces of trust and generosity.
Cosyland is designed to be a safe home for those who are aware and actively working on themselves. But of course it exists in a world where many people didn’t have much chance to do so.
It is the purpose of Cosyland to reach out to people who might be stuck in mindsets of competition and scarcity and offer them a ride. And to show them by example that it is just better to join communities who practice awareness and sincere cooperation.
Anyone who is prepared to work on themselves is invited to embark on the journey to Cosyland. It’s the only criteria.
Cosyland can become a powerful ground for transformative projects: By cooperating sincerely, we can contribute to turning all of planet Earth into a place, where we all can be at peace with ourselves and nature.
