Over the last few days, I've been watching @TribeSteemUp's Voting Power float between 85 & 95 percent, which seems about perfect to me. Now that some new equilibrium has been reached, I've opened the recruitment process, and we've got 12 new members of The Tribe! To see more about the process of finding balance, check out @TribeSteemUp's last 2 posts: Big Voting Changes & Finding Balance, Maximizing Effect, Moving Forward
We'll let these folks settle in for the next week and see how our VP is doing before adding another wave of creators :-) I've already got more than 20 others that have been recommended by Tribe Members! Many of the descriptions below were written by various members of the Tribe (often the person who suggested that new member). The SBD rewards from this post will be split evenly between all 12 of the new members, as well as everyone who wrote for the post.

Who is the Tribe?
@TribeSteemUp is a hand-picked group of content creators, assembled by @kennyskitchen over the last 10 months. Nobody can apply or sign up, new members are chosen because they are already consistently putting out content that maintains a semi-professional level of quality, as well as aligning with The 8 Pillars of TribeSteemUp, which are as follows:
FIRST, each individual is the exclusive proprietor of his or her own existence and all products thereof, holding no obligations except those created by consent;
SECOND, no individual or association of individuals, however constituted, has the right to initiate force against any other individual and each individual has the inalienable right of self-defense against the initiation of force;
THIRD, explicit voluntary association is the only means by which binding obligations may be created, and claims based on association or relationships to which any party did not consent are empty and invalid;
FOURTH, rights are neither collective nor additive in character, and no group can possess rights in excess of those belonging to its individual members;
FIFTH, the Earth is not a resource to be exploited, it is a living system, of which we are all pieces, and we must learn to live in harmony & balance with the rest of the system;
SIXTH, animals & plants do not exist to serve humans; they are living things that have their own existence, of which they are the exclusive proprietors;
SEVENTH, the purpose of all human endeavors should be the creation of a more thriving, peaceful, healthy, joyous world for ourselves and to leave for future generations;
EIGHTH, basing our interactions with each other on cooperation, co-creating the world we want to live in and pass on, is key to our success...
So how do I join?
I feel like I've got to make this one extra clear because of the vast amount of comments & direct messages I get, there is no way to join TribeSteemUp. Becoming a consistent creator, and working to create the same world that we are, will get you noticed, and when there becomes more room (more delegations, people going dormant, STEEM increases, etc), we add in the next wave.

@ameaningfullife is one of the newest Steemians in the Tribe, having only joined the platform a few weeks ago. His content was pretty good right out of the gate, and he's quickly expanding his formatting and getting involved in various communities.
His content so far has been pretty focused on meditation and mindfulness, but he promises a variety of other topics in store

@HolisticMom is a beautifully kind soul who is super passionate about nature, healing and alternative medicines, and is really keen on the idea of community, off grid life and growing produce to support her beautiful family. She's raising 4 children with a whole lotta love, care and mindfulness. She also has a house full of musical talent, and is one of the most kind and caring people you'll meet on Steemit.

@HopeHuggs' many roles include Mom, poet, entrepreneur, motivator and children story writer. She passionately advocates people living life on their own terms and not what society tries to dictate. Most importantly she believes in being yourself and not letting anyone else decide your worth. She is qualified to talk about that having recently found the courage to walk away from a long term emotionally abusive marriage. She is now living life on her own terms and learning many hard life lessons and realizations on the way.

@imp.unity is the account of Hae Joo (taking that name from Cloud Atlas), a young seeker who started on this path, like many of us, thanks to some powerful mind-altering chemicals inducing ego death. I stumbled across his work some time ago, and have been pleasantly surprised with the mix of energetics, economics, esoteric, theological research, society, and the paradigm shift as a whole.
One place where @imp.unity really shines is in his formatting and overall article style & flow. The integration of images, .GIFs, and videos, along with varied text, great paragraph & section break... It all works very well to keep his (often massive) posts flowing and easy to read.

@indigoocean is a compassionate explorer of consciousness, personal growth, love and life. since we started connecting on Steemit, she has been one of my favorite people. beauty emanates from her! She writes about life from such a fantastic perspective, I truly believe many of us have a lot to learn from her.
Her writings include spirituality, cryptocurrencies, updates of her travels as she is moving from California to New Mexico and more. In the past she created a land trust project of 26 homes for many families who could not afford housing and has dreams to create a permaculture training/learning farm that supports smaller such farms on the workers' homesteads. Definitely check her out; she's a fantastic new addition to @TribeSteemUP!

@Krishool, who also goes by the name Esoteric Noetic, is a true renaissance man of the 21st century. A singer, dancer, reality TV show star (The Voice Australia), philosopher, voluntaryist, writer, crypto-enthusiast, podcast host and vegan, Krishool is a jack of all trades and a master of many. He can sing, he can dance, and he can provide some of the deepest reflections on consciousness and the nature of reality, weaving his spiritual philosophy of compassion and Ahimsa into his many original songs and artistic performances.

Born in France, 42 years ago, I spent the last 16 years in India, and currently resides in Atitlan Lake, Guatemala . I studied ayurveda and herbalism with the European Institute of Vedic Studies of Atreya. I became then mostly autodidact and kept on learning from all the teachers, healers and masters I met in my travelings. Discovering and practicing new holistic ways of healing to bring well being, harmony and health in the world,my path crossed many different fields : massage therapy, accupressure, ayurveda, alchemical medicine preparations, alchemy, orgonite maker, Theta Healing, radionics, dowsing, shamanic healing, Matrix Energetics, meditation, yoga, vedic knowledge, herbalism, gem elixirs, incense and perfume blending, and different energetic healing modalities, the most recent being Light Language from the Mayan School of light. I took initiation with my spiritual master Sri Tathata in 2010.
I built my own understanding of how all these aspects interact in a higher holistic perspective. This is what I like to share in workshops and retreats, and in my creations.

@ParadigmProspect is one of the Steemians I've found whose journey most closely resonates with my own. His work embodies the idea of anarchy from the heart meeting anarchy from the mind, he's a long time supporter of the Zeitgeist Movement, and his posts are not only quite in-depth, but easy to read and full of imagery.
Somehow, I only found his page in the last month or so, and I really wish someone would build a new Steemian locator plug-in that can sort by the tags you like, the people you follow, the people they follow, etc, crossed with a @cheetah -like checker for plagiarism, optional word-count and even potentially running something like wordcounttools.com... anyway, I'm on a tangent :-) Seriously tough, someone build that!
He's a regular guest curator on @thedailysneak, and his content covers everything from magic to Zeitgeist, life-hacks to truth-seeking, his own music, and much much more!

You will find these thoroughly researched and articulated for the interested student of the hidden. Here you have the alchemist among the writers. It is highly suggested to follow his work but be aware: it might change your reality.

@startreat is here to post about creativity and living life to the full with her family in a beautiful community in Southern Spain. She is truly passionate about conscious birth and parenting and wants to share what she has learned and experienced during and after two homebirths, which were both very different stories! By posting about the trials and triumphs of motherhood, she hopes to inspire mums to realise that they are not alone and that they always have a choice in what they do.
Star is also an outstanding massage therapist, trained in many modalities and having created her own unique style and she is sharing some simple techniques that can be used by anyone to relieve stress and feel good.
Expect this, plus creative ideas to do with your children, nature, life in rural Spain and much more from her.

@vegan.niinja is an amazing creator of raw & vegan foods. The food she creates along with being super healthy and wholesome, are like works of art; she certainly has a gift when it comes to creating really good food. She is also a promoter of attachment parenting, she writes very inspiring posts about this most natural way of raising children. She is a great advocate for breastfeeding and child lead weaning.
If we are to empower ourselves then we need to start by paying attention to what we are putting into our bodies, @vegan.niinja is someone who will inspire you to nourish your body from the inside out.

New Tribe Member To-Dos
- Keep up the great work! You've been chosen because we see the value in what you are creating on STEEM!
- Read the 8 Pillars of TribeSteemUp and verify that you align with them
- Come join us on Discord (it's the only way to keep up with contests & collaborative projects within the Tribe, and we have a channel just for link-dropping posts that get missed by the auto-voter)
- Ride the beautiful waves of the paradigm shift here on Spaceship Steemit!
So what was that thing about curation rewards?
Right, I did mention something about how everyone can increase their STEEM income didn't I? Well, as many of you know, there are a variety of factors that are taken into account when calculating curation rewards (how much you get paid for voting). One of the big factors is how many (and what value) votes arrive after yours. Since @TribeSteemUp hits everyone on this list 1x/day, at the 30 minute mark, by putting those you want to support on your autovoter at the 29 minute mark, you will see a big increase on your curation rewards. For more on this tactic, check out these two posts from Tribe member @flauwy. (above image from @flauwy as well)
The Current Tribe Members
I'm actually going to break this into 3 groups: Those who are active & on our autovoter, those who are active but are not being auto-voted at the moment (because they earn $75+ on every post without us), and those who are dormant for the moment.
Active, Auto-Voted Tribe
