Vennly is an audio-focused spiritual health app that aims to create a safe space for users to seek inspiration and guidance from top spiritual and community leaders on a variety of topics.

Life can throw a lot at us and often at the same time. Whether it’s a new job, coping with the loss of a loved one, beginning a new relationship, becoming a parent, or simply trying to make sense of the world around us, we know it can be difficult to navigate life’s challenges, big and small. At Vennly, we were struggling with where to turn for guidance and spiritual support.

Increasingly, more of us are defining ourselves as “non-affiliated” religiously, yet still spiritual. And while mindfulness apps, yoga, and talking it out with friends offered us important outlets, we craved more.

Our mission at Vennly is to bring wisdom and inspiration to those who seek it, when they seek it. Vennly is an app that offers a safe, inclusive place for people to explore themes related to spirituality and everyday life through the perspectives of respected spiritual and community leaders across different backgrounds and traditions.

The name Vennly is derived from the Venn Diagram; it represents different traditions and perspectives converging in one place. “Being Vennly” is about the strength that we gain when we come together to learn, share, and reflect.

All are welcome.
