The S2 updates thread is here!
As we rapidly approach capacity for the S2 Program, only a handful of Passiflora Packs remain to be reserved! (For those who will be shortly receiving their sofi surprise, please be sure to upload your image to the form here as soon as it arrives so you can claim yours!)
It is well and truly a race to the finish line and we are thrilled to have doubled the number of Pioneers who will be entering our S2 in comparison to the S1 - with no plans to slow down anytime soon.
In fact, our S2 Pioneer Program is not only the first Program where we combine new and existing Pioneers (more than 500 all together), but it’s the first where we’ll be trialling two different builds of the plant pods and stick for better insight on how we can continue to improve sofi for you.
As of today, the plastics and metals for the sofi stick are all finalised, and electronics are arriving to us for firmware loading and assembly in the next few days. Paper, packaging, and bottles are all beginning production now.
We are currently in the process of flavour tweaking our passiflora formulation, having faced some unforeseen delays with the plant extraction process. Initially we had targeted a mid-June delivery of the S2 Pioneer Boxes for the new pioneers and S2 refill bottles for our existing pioneers, but currently we are on track to get these to you in the first half of July. We promise to do everything we can to push the process more quickly along, but plants are plants, and sometimes there’s just no rushing nature. On that note, please stay tuned for further updates and behind the scenes on production of the S2, coming soon.
What’s new with the Pioneer Program
Excitingly, from the S3 Pioneer Program on, we are drawing up plans to test a new plant every 8 weeks. This will significantly reduce the wait time between pioneer programs. We know our sleeping schedule depends on it! In the meantime, however, it means we are presented with a unique opportunity (as you know by now we are the masters of the silver linings!).
One of the most essential findings of our S1 Pioneer Program was the importance of establishing a routine with journaling in the sofi app, to establish a consistent baseline before we commenced our journey with valerian. Some pioneers managed to baseline for over 60 days ahead of the program starting.
Just as we began the S1 pioneer program with the release and engagement with the sofi app prior to shipping our Pioneer Packs, the first phase of the S2 will begin the same.
We are shortly releasing major updates to the S2 app, and we would encourage you to become familiarised with these elements ahead of the shipping of the S2 Pioneer Boxes and formulations. Ideally, we would like to see a strong and consistent baseline of 30 days for all Pioneers who will be participating in our passiflora trial (S2). Not only will this help to establish a routine, but it gives sofi the data she needs to form confident observations of effect where passiflora is making a difference for you.
To help with this your sofi score will become visible with a single swipe from the main landing page, providing an in-app measure of how consistent you have been in your journaling activity. We would love to see scores in the 70s, 80s and even for a handful of amazing pioneers in the 90s!
The sofi score is a direct indication of your journaling consistency. sofi loves for you to pick a consistent time and place in the day - make journaling once again part of your morning ritual. By journaling everyday at roughly the same time and place, your sofi score will begin to rise, as will the speed and confidence in sofi’s observations on effect…
We cannot express how incredibly grateful we are for the support we have been shown during the S1 Pioneer Program, and can’t wait to get passiflora into your hands. We hope that these new elements make the baselining process that tiny bit more rewarding as we lean full force into daily journaling in the lead up to the S2.
As always, thank you for joining us on this journey.
P.S. switch your sofi reminder notifications on if you haven’t yet (click on the person symbol on the top right of the app, scroll down to notification under “my sofi” section, and make sure all three boxes are checked)! And keep an eye out for more app information coming soon.
