Introducing Community Hearts: You are the Guide for the Gaia Community

We recently embarked on the next evolution of Gaia . Our move to rebrand ourselves as Gaia was about more than a new logo or color scheme, it was about taking a huge leap forward. A leap forward in the quality of our service. A leap forward in the experience for all of our members. And a leap forward in fulfilling our goal of connecting the global, conscious community.

Having been a member of the Gaia team since the beginning, I am extremely proud of where you have helped us go and how far we have come. I’m also excited about the great things that lie ahead. As part of our evolution, we are rolling out some exciting new features, new apps and great new ways for you to connect with our growing community. I'll be sharing some sneak peeks of what's coming over the next few weeks, starting with a feature I'm particularly excited about:

Community Hearts

The content on Gaia is full of inspiring moments, insightful quotes and intriguing references that provide great jumping off points for your own explorations, but keeping track of it all can be difficult. Our Community Hearts feature will allow you to mark your favorite moments so you can always remember them, as well as discover the most important moments from the rest of the Gaia community.

For you, leaving a heart is like creating a video bookmark that you can reference any time you'd like. For the rest of the community, it's like a sign post on their journey toward inspiration. You are their guide. Show them the moments that open your mind and open your heart. Show them the moments that change your perspective.

Hearts appear above the video timeline, with your hearts displaying in purple. Click any heart to instantly jump to that moment.

This feature is currently available to a small test group, but we'll be rolling it out to all of our members in a few weeks. With Community Hearts, you become the guide for the rest of the Gaia community. We can't wait to see what inspires you.

I can't tell you how many times I try to recall to a friend my favorites, now I have my reference points.

Love this idea! So many times there is a segment I want to share with my partner; this makes it so much easier! When will this be available to all subscribers?

Thanks for commenting. Watch for this feature around the end of November.

What a great idea, only as long as the bookmark you create automatically backs up by 10 sec. or whatever you designate, otherwise your bookmarks are on the tail end of what you're interested in at that moment.

Great idea, but I will not always want to see all of those hearts. I hope we will be able to turn the feature on and off.

SuzannaB@Gaia, posted on November 9, 2015

Yes, you will be able to turn the "hearts" feature off in the video player.

I hear so many things that resonate with me but when I go back to find it, it takes to long and I give up. This is a great idea! I am also excited to see what resonates with some of the other viewers. I look forward feature.

That's kind of a cool idea. I've never considered this or seen this before. I'm looking forward to it. This would be great, also, for the interviewers to see what their audiences really like. It would be cool if it was available on both new and older videos.

Great idea! I have often gone back and forth looking for a particular point in the conversation. Way to go!
