The Art of Living consists of a cross-section of voices from diverse cultures worldwide, each of whom share with us their thoughts on those questions of being alive which concern us all – irrespective of our religious or cultural backgrounds: in effect, ‘pooling our resources’, in order that we may all help each other learn the beautiful and complex ‘art’ of being alive.
From the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Michael Douglas, Mario Vargas Llosa, Muhammad Yunus, Deepak Chopra and Mikhail Gorbachev, to a Native American storyteller, an Armenian Shaman and a 104-year-old Holocaust survivor, The Art of Living doesn’t pretend to be an exhaustive study of every single aspect of being alive, but it is compiled with the hope that it may help to shift our perspectives – just a little.
http://artoflivingguide.org, the not-for-profit based on the same premise as the book, 'The Art of Living' (Kairós, 2009) was launched nearly 3 years ago, and since then, over 161 people from all over the world have visited our website, sharing their thoughts, experiences, poems and stories on those aspects of being alive which we all have in common - in other words, 'pooling our resources', so we can all help each other more with the beautiful and mysterious 'art' of being alive. -We'd love to hear from you, too, if you have something to say!
And if you're interested in donating, to help support our work - or in sponsoring a section of the site - we'd also love to hear from you!
