We were founded in 2003, with a mission to educate and encourage those who are searching for ways to build a better world. We believe in living an awakened, mindful life and having the information needed to improve mind, body, and spirit. From the food you put in your body: organic, sustainable, paleo, vegan; to the “food” you put in your mind: meditation, inspirational books, learning from a podcast or enlightening talk; to what you feed your soul: a mystical encounter, transformative experience, astrology, a Tarot reading or channeling – you make choices every day. Put simply, we want to help you live your best, most conscious life.
