About

Ruth

I am a former university professor from Nicaragua with various degrees and experience in pedagogy and linguistics; in 2003 I was nominated by my alma materโ€™s School of Humanities department as one of the best teachers on campus.

Although I still have a strong passion for linguistics, my gradual need for a healthier life lead me to explore the 8 limbed path of yoga, eventually earning a yoga teacher certification and becoming a part-time yoga and meditation teacher leading classes around the world in Central America, Europe and Asia. In 2014 I earned my certifications as an Ayurveda consultant and massage therapist specializing in Tok Sen, Ayurvedic and traditional Thai massage.

I am on a mission to help people find and maintain their custom approach to perfect health of body and mind to pave the way for true inner growth.


Thomas

I am a French engineer with a Master’s degree in entrepreneurship from EM Lyon Business School. After having worked for startups in Paris, London and San Francisco, I decided to venture on my own, create a startup and live as a digital nomad.

A set of events took me to Latin America where I started to learn more about living a healthier life, yoga and meditation. I then decided to deepen my knowledge of eastern schools of thoughts and thanks to the digital nomadic life, I was able to embark upon a transformative two-year journey in Asia.

Fast forward three years and I have become an avid meditator who continues to be an entrepreneur on a mission to spread the entrepreneurial mindset, help motivated individuals to create purposeful projects and enable open collaboration between business and society.

Why the name WEARECO?

WEARECO can be read in two ways:

#1

It is the contraction of WE ARE ECO, “eco” referring to the environment like in ecology, or ecosystem. Here, WEARECO means “we are the environment” and by extension “we are the planet”, which is a way to remind us of our fundamental connection with the Earth.

#2

It can also be understood as WE ARE CO, “co” being a prefix meaning “together, mutually, in common” that can be found in words like community or collaboration. In that case, WEARECO conveys the ideas of “we are all part of the same family” and “we are in it together”.

Where are we based?

We are currently – and temporarily – in Nicaragua. We have moved quite a lot these past years and the WEARECO project has grown from several parts of the world (here is the list of the top places we worked from). Since 2013, we’ve spent:

Combined, we’ve been to over 60 countries so far. These experiences have been the opportunity to open our minds, understand the world’s state of affairs better and meet great people with inspiring stories to share.
