For the past two to three years, I have seen the Holstee Manifesto every day. When we sat down on the sunny steps of Union Square, we had no idea that the words we scribbled down about what we had come to learn and understand as the most important values of life would be appreciated and shared by millions of people across the world. The idea that it could resonate with some many people from so many different backgrounds gives me hope. It gives me hope for a world where people can believe in a shared reality, have faith in each other and a passion for life. In this world, I imagine health and happiness to overcome war and greed.

The Manifesto was never about a company, it was never about us, and it had no intention other than to capture a dream. The words and image of the manifesto are nearly mute to my eyes at this point, but every day that I see it, I am reminded and inspired by the individuals that share that dream. I find great energy in that shared hope.

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.
