🔥 cXc Tribe is lighting our fire! 🌞🔵🟣 Walk beside us to a more musical world 🔮🧙‍♂️

cXc Tribe is a holotropic, bond-based fractal organization serving creatives through biomimetic content networks.

cXc.world is a tool to help creatives everywhere, currently focusing on Music. As an organization, cXc is also dedicated to personal growth + self expression by all members according to their goals and purpose. As chief, I seek to be a service-leader, guiding each member to embody the highest version of themselves, and to honor our cXc Temple.

The Power of Tribe 🔥

Tribe is empowered through community to act as cXc, not just as a representative, but an embodiment of the spirit of cXc. We take the “ask forgiveness not permission” approach and trust you to express your unique value for mutual benefit, without interference, and with guidance readily available. With great power comes great responsibility, and you’ll be responsible for expressing your higher self and serving others on their journey to do so. While you’re becoming villager, take a moment, a night, a week to fully feel if this Tribe is where you belong. We hope to walk beside you soon.

Your actions allow you to form a bond, and as long as that bond isn’t broken, you’ll get paid PURPLE every month.

🔥🔨 Forge your bond to cXc by completing actions, and uphold your bonds to continue breaking 🥖🟣 with Tribe.
