I just want to pause and take a moment for this word.


Chances are you have heard the word at yoga, in talks, through meditations.

I feel like I hear it all the time — so much so that I forget to think about what it really means.

A yoga teacher explained it to me as:

“The light in me sees the light in you.”

Such a beautiful sentiment.

All that is good, all that is pure, all that radiates positivity within me has found and sees the equal in you.

It's the opposite of superficial.

It’s deep. It sees what is within. And then filters it through a rosy lens of positivity.

You don't need to say it. But see it. Give your light and see the light that surrounds you.

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.
