I quit my job as a graphic designer in 2005, in the hope that I could one day become proud of the answer to the question, “What do you do?” A few years later, once I’d made true on my promise, I was approached by a production company who wanted to make a small video about my life choices. I’ll admit, up until then I hadn’t heard of the Holstee Manifesto and when they sent over a script for me to narrate for the video I thought, “These guys have written this just for me, and they nailed it!” Your Manifesto stands for everyone good, true and worthwhile in life. It’s a reminder not to take time for granted, and that allowing passion to flourish is integral to happiness. Thank you for making the world a better place.

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.
