I have been through some rough things in my life in recent years including the loss of my oldest daughter to cancer at a way too early age, the end of a thirty year marriage, and most recently a break up of a relationship of 9 years that I thought would be part of my life until the end of it. All of that has made me very disillusioned with finding happiness. Someone posted the Manifesto poster on Facebook and a lot of it spoke to me. I have it hanging in my office where I can be reminded several times a day of the possibilities in my life that are yet to come.-

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.
