Two years ago I ordered the Manifesto for my home office. I had been teaching at the university level and was feeling frustrated with my inability to make change there. So I put up the poster, concentrated on reading it daily and decided to quit my job and move on. I took time to have a necessary surgery, spent the past 9 months healing and shooting photographs. I am now offering my images for sale and sharing my passion for photography with family and friends. I really believe I wouldn't have made this change without the encouragement offered in the Manifesto and support of my family. Thank you!

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.
