Loving is an art.
It must be learned, practiced and explored.

Finally, the education you always needed.

Create The Love began as a collection of words inspired by a rock bottom. Rock bottoms are chances to meet ourselves – to touch the depths of who we truly are, buried deeply below who we were taught to be.

Today, Create The Love is a platform that guides you to design the life + love you’ve longed for, holding space for wherever you are in your journey. The most important part is, you made it here. And you are exactly where you should be.

If you’re ready to smash through old barriers, let go of unhealthy habits (from relationships, to booze, to sex, to food), establish clear boundaries, and step into the wholeness that fuels the love, relationships, passions and dreams you desire…this is a space for you.

When we remove our masks
Embrace the shadows of our past
Shift our expectations
And take time to understand ourselves and our heart….

things happen.

Meet Mark Groves

Human Connection Specialist

Mark Groves is the founder of Create The Love. His own rock bottom – a relationship ending – sparked his lifelong journey to turn his mess into his message. Today, Mark is a human connection specialist, speaker, writer, motivator, creator, connector and collaborator. All. The. Things. As a bridge between the academic and the human, Mark invites people to explore the good, bad, downright ugly, and beautiful sides of connection.

As he puts it: “My brain and heart are home to a lot of relationship nerding-out. Here’s the deepest truth I (currently) know: I’m not here to eff around on this planet during this lifetime. I don’t want to ‘kinda’ do things. I am here to rock the boat. I’m here to share my truth.”

Mark’s purpose? Empowering individuals to step into their power, transform the way they relate to themselves and others, and create authentic change – for a life + love they’ll look back on with a resounding “f*ck yes.”

Better Together

The beautiful part of connection, is the act of sharing unique experiences with other people. This Create The Love team is scattered around the world and yet we serendipitously all connected through Mark. We’re a small, mighty values-based team that love our very real human connection both on and offline. We vibe based on our shared love for wood burning fireplaces, tacos, good coffee, music, nature and a shared vision for making the human experience a little bit better through great relationships.

Meet Carrie

We like to think of Carrie as Mark’s second brain, the keeper of all the things. Her playfulness makes managing all the behind the scenes and inner workings of the company fun and refreshing. Before working at Create The Love, Carrie worked in oil and gas for 5 years—BIG shifts here! Carrie has an energy that lights people up. Her ability to communicate with honesty and kindness creates the space for others to do the same, fostering team connection and building trusting relationships.

When Carrie’s not working, you can find her in a small Albertan town riding horses, playing with her pup and daydreaming of where to explore next. She’s originally from across the pond and believe it or not—she has a delegated Ladyship title… That’s right, she’s a laaaaady!

Meet Joanna

Jo is a self-taught tech whiz who possesses an entrepreneurial spirit and continuously innovates to achieve great results. She’s the energizer bunny on the squad—sometimes we question whether she’s drinking crates of Red Bull behind the scenes! Jo’s a systems-thinker who continuously finds new ways to evolve and improve how we work. With a brain wired for building from the ground up, she loves the back end of creating courses here at Create The Love! 

Jo was born and raised in Chicago and now leads a life in warmer parts of the States! She’s a Geology major, speaks 4 languages, is a mumma to an energetic baby girl and 3 cats, and holds certifications in energy healing. Joanna dreams of building a spiritual retreat centre in Hawaii in the future! Wanna chat about your horoscope or better yet, aliens? Hit up Jo!

Meet Katherine

Katherine, aka Kat, is our Admin Coordinator here at Create the Love and the lovely human replying to your emails over at Customer Service. She can usually be found sipping an iced oat matcha latte, vibing to Bob Marley and coordinating magic behind the scenes!

A Vancouverite now living in the desert of the US Southwest (a girl’s gotta have sun), Kat completed the Marketing and Merchandising for Fashion program at the Visual College of Art and Design of Vancouver before launching into a successful career in the fashion industry. Craving more freedom, fulfillment and impact, Kat soon left the corporate world and made the leap of faith to solopreneurship, helping entrepreneurs to uplevel their biz through a killer social media presence.

Not long after, Kat discovered Mark’s work and fully immersed herself into her own healing. This journey ultimately led her to merge both her personal and professional passions by joining the Create the Love team!

When Kat’s not tapping away at her keyboard, you can find her planning her next overseas adventure, scouring the racks of a local thrift store, or spending time with her soul fam.
