The New Modality is a new publication and community based in San Francisco.  We explore the edges, asking: What is a meaningful life in this rapidly changing world, and how can we all show up to create that?

We cover art, culture, business, tech, science and spirituality, relationships, governance, and beyond, because change is occurring at all levels: The individual, family, community, city, nation, and the world.

When building community, we aspire to help people genuinely and authentically connect.
We hope to create infrastructure for long-term resilience, both within our communities and by means of our articles.
When we distribute information, we seek to be thoughtful, explanatory, and solutions-focused.
We publish material that teaches rather than triggers.
We celebrate art, beauty, love, optimism, openness, innovation, and play.

We believe in interdependence and intersectionality, while simultaneously supporting individual freedom and self-expression. We believe that no problem is too big and no issue is too small to be addressed with optimism, empathy, and human brilliance.

THANK YOU to everyone who backed us. We're so grateful for the support we got on Kickstarter!
If you didn't see our Kickstarter in time, you can order our print magazine or get a subscription in our online Backerkit store (eventually we'll move this onto our website).
