The Manifesto is incredible because it it gives one single-minded powerful first step in how to make the world a better place. It does not tell me to “drink tap water” or “give to charity” or “save the rainforest”. It does not burden me with guilt or shame for my current behavior (I fly a lot). Instead it tells me to look in the mirror and to begin taking myself seriously. As a human. Do the things I care about. Enjoy the last bite. Share my passion with others. It is hedonistic sustainability. Making the world better does not start with fixing someone else. It starts with fixing me. That is the first step. That is what the Manifesto reminds me to do.

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.
