"We have flown the air like birds and swum the sea like fishes, but have yet to learn the simple act of walking the earth like brothers."

​— Martin Luther King Jr.

As a species, we have done so many incredible things — feats that were at a time unimaginable and seemingly impossible. But when it comes to something as human as being compassionate, understanding, and loving to our neighbors, we often fall short, letting petty differences divide us.

And as sure as we need to walk before we can run, we’re sure that once we do learn to walk as brothers (and sisters!), we will be able to fly higher and swim farther together.

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.
