Suzanne Brogger, Founder & CEO
Suzanne was first drawn to meditation and energy work as a means to create balance and as a respite from the ever-increasing frenetic pace of life. Through decades of exploring meditation, breath work, energy work and with a growing interest in plant and energy medicine, she was guided to create a space to share the teachings of new and ancient practices for accessing our own inherent wisdom to heal ourselves.
Suzanne understands how connected our individual human experience is and feels mission driven to create opportunities for authentic communication and deep healing in small groups and one on one. As an active social issues advocate, real estate re-developer and angel investor, Suzanne brings decades of skill, vision and personal connection to her work. Now, with The Living Room Collective, a sacred space for healing, she has created a natural extension of the work she loves doing in the world, forwarding ideas and practices that illuminate, empower, and heal.
Organizations and missions Suzanne lovingly supports:
The Bystander Project
Founded in 2012, The Bystander Project aims to create a world where bystanders are empowered to become Upstanders in the face of sexual assault and domestic and emotional abuse. Through community and cultural awareness, social media, legislative action and film, we are committed to continuing the conversation until we are all empowered to speak truth to power in our efforts to protect and empower those most vulnerable to abuse.

Inspiring a Reforestation Revolution
What if everyone started giving back to the natural world in ways that restore the global forest? How fast could we make a difference in the face of climate change? TreeSisters exists to elicit collective responsibility for planetary restoration at the grass roots level with a focus on women and tropical reforestation. We are growing a global network of women who donate monthly to fund the acceleration of tropical reforestation as an expression of collective planetary care.
Joyful Heart Foundation
Founded by actress Mariska Hargitay in 2004, Joyful Heart Foundation is paving the way for innovative approaches to treating trauma; igniting shifts in the way the public views and responds to sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse; and reforming and advancing policies and legislation to ensure access to justice for survivors. With an emphasis on ending the rape kit backlog nationwide, The Joyful Heart Foundation has become one of the most impactful survivor advocacy organizations in the country and the world.
CHILD USA’s mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect and to help kids stay kids.

CHILD USA produces evidence-based solutions and information needed by policymakers, organizations, media, and society as a whole to increase child protection and the common good.
