Good intentions are no longer enough. I wanted to support humanity in my own way. Meaningful World was a natural
way for me to help the victims of tsunami.
So many systems have failed us and as we transition from failed models, attitudes and behaviors that are polarizing,
destructive and failing all around us I could not just sit back, be overwhelmed and do nothing… I am doing something
with Meaningful World.
Meaningful World cultivates well-being, relatedness, a deep awareness and understanding how to elevate some of the
world's suffering. Our choices impact all living systems and I choose to be an agent of good.
