I’m a TEDster (at TEDActive in Palm Springs) who didn’t make it this year (where I think your poster was given to attendees). I run TEDxCanberra, which is a huge and overwhelming outlet for my passions. There’s so much resonation for me and my partner with the Manifesto—we’re both putting a copy in our offices after we have them framed. I work in communications, service design and community building, but it’s really just a way to get paid to support my passions—innovation, creativity, solving intractable problems—until I can reboot my business (I’m working for someone else at the moment, but I own and run acidlabs - http://acidlabs.org/). I’m planning to get a copy of the Manifesto for each member of my team at TEDxCanberra. I think it represents so much of what we’re about.

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.
