What is the one thing that Beyonce, Tony Robbins, Ronald Reagan, Queen Elizabeth and I have in common?

When we shit, it stanks.

Nobody likes the smell. But nonetheless, shit happens.

It’s a bit awkward. It’s a bit taboo. And often people like to pretend it never happened.

But it most definitely happened. And it happens every day.

Your race, your face, your gender and your wealth don’t exclude you. It's not even limited to our species.

But what if what grosses us out about ourselves and each other is the one thing that can really bring us together?

When all else fails, there's always some shit to unite us.

Our Themes

Distilled from our Manifesto, positive psychology, the science of mindfulness, and ancient philosophic studies we have identified twelve themes core to living both fully and mindfully. We mapped these twelve themes to each of the twelve months in a year. Together with our community we explore one each month.
