Inspiration and tools to help you live a more meaningful life.

In today’s fast-paced, hyper-connected world, it’s become harder to focus on what’s actually important and not just what is urgent.
  • to find the time
  • to know where to begin
  • to do it alone

Begin your day feeling grounded and inspired.

A free 30-day email series where we share the most impactful stories and ideas that have helped us on our journey to live a more meaningful life.

Our story begins with The Holstee Manifesto.

Remember, this is your life.

Over ten years ago, we wrote The Holstee Manifesto — our own definition of success. But in trying to live these values, we struggled, finding ourselves distracted by the urgency of our notification-driven culture and trapped by the idea of living up to someone else's definition of success.
Over the years, it became clear to us that living with intention and reflection is an ongoing practice, not a destination. This was the seed that started the Holstee Membership.
We created the Holstee Membership to be a constant reminder to live fully and mindfully.

Each month, together with our community, we explore one theme that's core to living a more meaningful life.

We are passionate about bringing more meaning and inspiration into people's lives. To do this, we’ve put together a framework of 12 themes that can help you slow down and think about what’s most important to you. These themes are grounded in ancient philosophy, modern science, and the words of the Manifesto that put us on the map.
With your monthly Holstee Membership, you will get inspiring art, actionable guides, and curated resources to help you find perspective in a sometimes complicated and overwhelming world.
Every month, Holstee Members receive:

Inspiring Art

We’re on this journey together.
There is a lot of “we” talk on this page — that “we” is us! We’re brothers and the co-founders of Holstee. We started Holstee in 2009 as a t-shirt company focused on the social and environmental impacts of production — an extension of our true desire to live both fully (do something we are passionate about!) and mindfully (be aware of our impact on the world around us). We never could have guessed that our journey would lead us on this wild path of learning and self-discovery, but we are so happy it has.
Together with our team, we have jumped headfirst into the literature of a life well lived, from classic philosophers like Aristotle, Seneca and Nietzsche to modern thinkers like Martin Seligman, Carol Dweck, Tal Ben-Shahar, and Brené Brown (just to name a few!). Combined with the values we first shared in the Holstee Manifesto, we identified 12 themes that we believe are core to living both fully and mindfully. Each month, we explore one of these themes through our Holstee Membership.
There are a lot of companies and people promising a silver bullet solution to all your “problems”. This isn’t that. We’re just normal people striving to live well and sharing what we’ve learned. We don’t have all the answers, but we’re committed to asking the questions and doing the work. And like you, and the thousands of people in our community, we’re also on this journey.
Here’s to enjoying the ride,


Mike and Dave Radparvar
Co-Founders, Holstee
