The Story Behind Our Mindful Launch Date – 8.8.08 8:08
Here is a brief explanation from the Mindful Living Network’s founder, Dr Kathleen Hall regarding the significance of the number eight:
“I found this number to be so powerful and auspicious I decided to launch the Mindful Living Network on August 8, 2008, at 8PM, on minute 8 and on the eighth second. That was on the eighth year, eighth month, the eighth day, eighth hour, and eighth second of the day. The Mindful Living Network continues to grow and flourish from the womb of 8. When we have struggled and worked through challenges, I have depended on the energy of 8,. The number 8 to me is the Divine number and power, as well as a beacon of light guiding us through. Mindful living is number 8. There is no end to what you co-create when you live mindfully. Your life becomes one continuous, eternal, Divine loop of nourishment, challenges, growth, and wisdom.”

The Story Behind Our Logo
Did you know that the Fibonacci Sequence is a phenomenon that occurs throughout nature, art, music, and mathematics? The Fibonacci numbers are seen in the growth of every living thing, including the Mindful Living Network. Dr Kathleen Hall says she wanted a powerful, sacred, Divine symbol for the logo. As a result, when the Mindful Living Network was created, our logo features the Fibonacci Sequence.
Dr Kathleen Hall chose what is for her the ultimate symbol of the Divine in the universe. As she explains, “I prayed that this universal Divine code would drive everything we do at the Mindful Living Network. It does this by bringing hope, healing, and love into the world while alleviating suffering. This powerful symbol still lights our way. It continues to guide us to help love and heal the world”.

Quotes that embody the essence of Mindful Living
“The Earth does not belong to man; Man belongs to the Earth. This we know.
All things are connected like the blood which unites one family.
Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons and daughters of the earth.
We did not weave the web of life. We are merely a strand in it.
What we do with the web, we do to ourselves.”
~ Chief Seattle, A prominent Native American
(Seattle, Washington was named after him)
“Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi
“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right,
especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake.
Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds
we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
~ Dr Martin Luther King, Jr
