Resources

We all find inspiration in different ways, that is why this collection of  poems, writings, daily practices, quotes and videos have been collated from many sources. Here, Mana staff, community, teachers and renown philosophers share their thoughts – in the words of Paul Smith “You can find inspiration in everything. If you can’t… look again.”
