The Holstee Manifesto is one of the most creative expressions of genuine values I’ve ever seen. I strongly believe that we will need a shift within organizations, from “prescribed values” to “real values”, co-created with all stakeholders and engrained in the minds and hearts of the people involved. By embodying this, this Manifesto has not only inspired a lot of our work around Impact Organizations and helped us to frame our ideas, but left a lasting footprint on me and the whole Sandbox community. I just placed it over my bed, as a constant reminder to live each day to the ideas and ideals that keep me running.

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.
