Welcome to GROK* the World, a resource to support your authentic compassionate life! Here you'll find products and services to increase compassion, clarify intentions, and improve communication in all your relationships - even the one with yourself!
As two women desiring to contribute to life in a positive and life-serving way, we began our business in 2005 to promote a more peaceful and empathetic world. Our first product, GROK games, was translated into other languages and has been shipped to over 25 countries around the world. We were so inspired developing this product that we continue to create more materials to enhance emotional intelligence, cultivate compassion, and promote peace.
We invite you to browse our website, check out our games, booklets, and workshops, read our blog, and enjoy our videos. And write to us to share your wisdom and experiences.
