The Soft Road is a platform for personal and cultural transformation that helps people and groups thrive in creative action. On The Soft Road we set out an experience of life that unwinds stress, unlocks creativity, develops intuition, and builds resilience. These inner resources create a foundation of stability and adaptability that deepens over time and brings greater ease to every day.
The Soft Road approaches this transformation by doing different things,
not simply doing the same things differently.
The Soft Road is especially focused on empowering those who are pursuing new realms of potential and expanded capacities, not only for high performance, but also for an enhanced way of living. Ever-present stress is known to limit the development of increasingly sought-after skills including empathy, collaboration, and critical thinking paired with creativity. By engaging both intuition and intellect, The Soft Road helps to strengthen the links and harness the sustained benefits of wellbeing for positive growth, achievement, and innovation.
Founded by Melanie Kirkbride and Neil Kirkbride, The Soft Road offers a modern context for meditation, applying the benefits of a daily practice at the centre of an array of relevant and relatable tools and information. Together Neil and Melanie leverage the powerful combination of their leadership and coaching experience with their mastery of meditation in the ancient Vedic tradition—as teachers and practitioners in both worlds.
