Conscious Entrepreneurs' Community - blog

Next Friday April 26th we are excited to return to the Helsinki City Hall for an other event that will surely fill the space with community, connection, and learning (like our CEC Festival back in 2023).

If you would like to join us, you can register for free through our Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.fi/e/conscious-entrepreneurs-self-care-day-tickets-866586953907



The way this event came together has been wonderful! It has been a natural coming together of five different wellbeing experts, all with a different passion and focus, all wanting to share their learnings with others


This day is for you if…


  • You are looking to spend an afternoon in an inspirational environment with an inclusive community feel

  • You are ready to learn concepts and tools to help increase your well-being

  • You want to gift yourself an afternoon to focus on the most important relationship in your life… while also connecting deeply with others!



Minna Mustapää will open the day by sharing about the organizations behind this event and lead us through an opening meditation to get us more present for the day. She will share her journey of chasing her worth outside of herself, and most importantly the tools that helped her to stop chasing. In this section will be grounded mindfulness that will tickle our inner awareness with the intention of increased happiness and emotional well-being.




Next up Carmen Lorenzana will connect us with the power of cyclical living, and how we can use this wisdom to supercharge our lives. She is a certified Fertility Awareness teacher by FEMM (Fertility Education and Medical Management), a Red School Menstruality Mentor, and a life coach. In this workshop, you will explore the profound connections between the cycles of nature and your own inner rhythms. From the daily ebb and flow to the phases of the menstrual, lunar and creative cycles, connect to the richness of cyclical living. We will also explore how the lessons learned from your menstrual cycle can be applied to our entrepreneurial journey, helping us cultivate sustainability and well-being.



Then Tiia Huuhka, an intuitive eating nutritionist who’s changing the way we talk about food and bodies will share how she went from constantly feeling lost and confused about how to eat to feel good in her own skin, to finding food freedom and being in tune with her body. She studied the Science of Nutrition at the university and is passionate about disarming the harmful diet culture we live in. Are you ready to recognize and question damaging beliefs and rules you have about food and eating?



After our short break, we will continue with the amazing powerhouse that is Katre Kitchen. She is a certified personal and group fitness trainer who started her own fitness journey over a decade ago, which just about saved her life. She wanted to pay it forward and see if what she had experienced with training, can help other women. She started an all women Bootcamp three years ago that organically grew at a fast pace. A community of women who wanted to feel better found themselves loving movement through the supportive community. She found out that it works - it wasn’t a fluke and other women are changing their lives too. In this session you will hear Katre's inspiring story and top tips, as well as learn how you can join her Bootcamp if you are ready up level your physical (and emotional) wellbeing!



And last but not least, the wonderful Jessi Christian will connect us with the superpower of self-compassion, and how to turn it into self-confidence. Jessi went from severe burnout and depression to becoming a certified life coach. Giving herself grace and kindness was at the core of her journey and she will share tools and mindset shifts she learned along the way. She supports her clients in tackling topics such as inner criticism, self-confidence, perfectionism, self-compassion and self-care and empowers women to show up unapologetically authentic in life.



...But wait there's more! To integrate all of the inspiring ideas and thoughts we will have learned along the day, we will join together for an open panel conversation on all the learnings of the day, answer any questions, and share reflections. This is set to be a brave and deep conversation that invites sharing vulnerably and creating a strong sense of connection with yourself and others.

Have you ever heard of orange wine? Or are you well versed in the differences of the making of Champagne vs. Prosecco? Have you tried Finnish wine?


One of our wonderful community member's, Maria Kuzina, is an ex-St.George Helsinki sommelier who opened her own specialised wine tasting space on Yrjönkatu 25 in March 2023. https://www.winemaria.com/


I went to visit Maria in her beautiful cozy space and interview her on her journey and ask some questions about wine. You can listen to our open conversation on Spotify about entrepreneurship, jumping to create your own small business and following your vision.



Some of the wines that are mentioned in this episode (not an ad, no affiliation):

  • Ainoa Valokki cloudberry wine (https://ainoawinery.com/valokki)

  • Gewürztraminer wine grape that has a rose water / exotic fruit type of character. Grown in Alsace, Italy, Germany, and Austria.

  • Georgian wine made in large Qvevri vessels dug into the Earth.

I hope you enjoy our open conversation, the fascinating trivia knowledge Maria shares about wine, and feel the power of community when being a small business founder.

We are now officially registered as Conscious Entrepreneurs Community ry and we are so excited for this next step in our development.


For the past two plus years we have been growing organically, slowly underground without any web or social media presence. It has been a grass roots effort driven by the yearning to connect with fellow entrepreneurs and connect them with each other for peer-to-peer support, collaboration and collective growth.


Now in an effort to increase the visibility of our member’s, receive funding for our work to increase our services and to uplevel this community, we have registered as an non-profit organization.

Our bylaws state:


“The purpose of the association is to maintain a community of entrepreneurs and individuals aspiring to become entrepreneurs, who strive to create a positive impact through their business. The association's mission is to increase public awareness of the conscious development of business activities in terms of societal responsibility, sustainability and impact. In accordance with its mission, the association creates dialogue about conscious leadership and how we can utilize entrepreneurship to cultivate our collective future, and develops such training opportunities.”


One of our community founders, Minna Mustapää completed Humanity’s Team Conscious Business Change Angent training back in 2016 which semented her path as an impact driven entrepreneur. During the training she had the honour of learning directly from Ken Wilber, Dr. Alan Watkins, Hank Queen and many other great evolutionary leaders of our time. The Humanity’s Team Conscious Business declaration states:


A New Standard for Business in the 21st Century


As a global community of business leaders we are committed to developing the awareness and skills needed to consciously evolve our organizations in alignment with these principles:

  • We Are One with humanity and all of life. Business and all institutions of the human community are integral parts of a single reality — interrelated, interconnected and interdependent.

  • In line with this reality, the purpose of Business is to increase economic prosperity while contributing to a healthy environment and improving human wellbeing.

  • Business must go beyond sustainability and the philosophy of “do no harm” to restoring the self-renewing integrity of the Earth.

  • Business must operate with economic, social, and ecological transparency.

  • Business must behave as a positive and proactive member of the local and global communities in which it operates.

  • Business that sees, honors, and celebrates the essential interconnected nature of all human beings and all life maximizes human potential and helps create a world that works for all.

  • When aligned with Oneness, Business is the most powerful engine on Earth for creating prosperity and flourishing for all.


How excited do you feel when you read that declaration? If it’s a yes! And if you are looking to connect with fellow entrepreneurial change makers, then you can leave your interest in becoming a member here.


We are excited to live out this Conscious Business Declaration and the mission in our bylaws to create dialogue and training opportunities. Our first such next step is our Conscious Entrepreneurs’ Festival at Helsinki City Hall on the 10th March.
