The One Million Butterflies project came to life to help people around the world through times of change, and all the fear and uncertainty that comes with it.

We created a 12-week connection, resilience and transformation program

to help you find your way through, whatever it is you’re going through, so you can move forwards, and start to live a more connected and purposeful life, a life that brings you joy.

You deserve that. We all do.

So how does it work?

It’s an online guided program over 12 weeks.


Each week is built around a theme, with a simple but powerful Set Free Challenge for you to work through for that week.


A Week to Grieve

A Week of Appreciation

A Week of Love

A Week of Connection

A Week of Kindness

A Week of Nature

A Week of Courage

A Week of Letting Go

A Week to Dream

A Week to Build

A Week of New Beginnings

A Week of Joy

Change is hard. It takes some work.

But if you or someone you know is struggling with fear and uncertainty, anxiety, you feel lost or overwhelmed, for whatever reason, and you want to find a glimmer of hope, you want to feel part of something, you want, you NEED to make some changes in your life

One Million Butterflies is helping thousands of people all around the world through this time, a beautiful and growing community, finding their way.

We’re all here to connect and support each other.

Maybe we can support you too. 

Simple but powerful program

The program is all online, in easy to follow steps as we guide you, week by week, through a series of Set Free challenges that focus on healing and transforming one area of your life at a time, helping you find connection, build resilience, and slowly transform your life.

You work your way through the video and written modules each week, with check ins to see how you’re going.

We provide you with access to our private facebook group to connect with the global One Million Butterflies community.

And as a community we share our experiences, we encourage each other, hold ourselves accountable and celebrate together as we find our way, together.

"At a time when EVERYTHING I love and count on is either suddenly missing or challenged, I know I will need, as we all will need, lighthouses of soulful connection to buoy this transition in and out of choppy waters.

Those tiny graces of realized shared experience from strangers can shape your day, your week, your outlook.⁠⠀ ⁠

Grateful to be here."

Eliza

"The thing that struck me most was how much I had hidden away, sometimes coping means I don't do much feeling, I kind of just turned off and kept my head above water. ⁠⠀ ⁠

Starting One Million Butterflies was such permission, permission to let go, to feel, to explore the darkness and re-find the light, it also brought such validation, I didn't even know I needed that.

To feel seen is a powerful thing it turns out! Such a lovely community."⁠⠀

Judith

"I loved how One Million Butterflies described exactly what has been going on through my head these past weeks... ⁠

We realised that what we were feeling was grief. We're grieving. Grieving the loss of our lives as we knew them. Grieving the loss of our plans, our dreams. Grieving the loss of stability. Security. Freedom."

Gaurav

"Hi One Million Butterflies!⁠⠀ ⁠

I'm just another random follower, but I just wanted to say thank YOU so much for what you do. I have never really seen any organization or collective start a project like you all have done. Thank you so much for spreading a much needed message of love, human connection, and hope.⁠

Especially during current times, I hope that you are feeling happy, healthy, well, and safe. And if you're not, my best wishes for you to feel better."

Michelle

"It has been very useful to bring back my awareness and to focus on the topic of the week. I have a moderate reliance on alcohol and this community has really helped me to see all the positives in my life.⁠⠀ ⁠

I look forward to each Monday to see what my activity is. ⁠

I am so very appreciative."⁠

FAQ

  • Why is there a registration fee?

    It takes a full time, dedicated team to develop and support this program and the community. Hours and hours of researched and expert content has been created across 12 weeks of guidance - nearly 100 pages plus all the accompanying resources. We have an in-house counsellor, and none of this is funded by any government organisation.

    We also invest in outreach through facebook, instagram and linkedin, to help us reach more and more people in need.

    Your registration fee helps us continue to help people.

    We also want One Million Butterflies to be as inclusive and accessible as possible through this time when so many of us are financially impacted.

    The cost of registration is $90, but if you can only afford $45 or even $25, we’ve subsidised the cost of the program based on annual household income.

    If you absolutely cannot afford even the $25 registration fee, but would still like to participate, please email kat@onemillionbutterflies.org and tell us your circumstance, and how much you can afford to pay.

  • Will this program improve my mental health?

    One Million Butterflies is designed to help process the loss, fear and uncertainty of time of big change, like these times we are living through together. Acknowledging our loss, our fears, but also appreciating what we do have, and letting go of burdens that don’t help us.

    Re-connecting more deeply with ourselves, friends and family, our community, and nature. Self-love. Kindness.

    And creating a vision for the life we would like to live, making a plan to bring that to life, and helping take the first step.

    That is what One Million Butterflies is for. All with the support of our team and this beautiful, global community.

    As authors of the One Million Butterflies program, we do not give medical advice or prescribe the use of any techniques in the program as a form of treatment for physical, mental or medical problems without the advice of a physician, either directly or indirectly. The intent of the program is only to offer information of a general nature to help you and your emotional well-being.

    Please do not hesitate to seek professional help from a mental health practitioner, psychologist or psychiatrist if you are struggling mentally, emotionally or physically. There are many wonderful organisations around the world that can guide you to find the help you may need, and we have provided some links and contacts here for you.

  • Do I have to be impacted by COVID to participate?

    Absolutely not. This is a life-changing program. Whether life has changed for you in a way that is beyond your control, or you are choosing to change your life intentionally, working through the program can help you find clarity, purpose, and yourself.

  • Is this a religious program?

    No. This is a human program. Whatever your background or beliefs, we’re all in this together. This is about universal human themes of loss, fear, courage, self-love, connection and vision. All are welcome, and we ask our community to be welcoming, inclusive and respect the wonderful diversity of thought, race, gender, sexuality and culture.

  • Can I join with friends?

    Yes! In fact, the program is even better to do aligned with a friend, someone to share your experiences with and to hold you accountable.

    Simply both register in the same week, and your programs will start together.

  • Can I buy this for a friend or family member?

    Yes, and what a wonderful, heartfelt gift.
