A collection of talks and essays on topics that are mainly inspired by our inner world. We’ll tap into stories on how we perceive the world around us, on what inspires us to become better humans, better individuals, while being connected to the outside world.
We’re learning together how to listen to ourselves, to understand our minds, to let our imagination wander, to take things slowly and be mindful of our time & energy.
Today’s choice is Maya Angelou’s “A Brave and Startling Truth”. This poem was composed by Maya Angelou especially for the United Nation’s 50th Anniversary back in 1995. It speaks about our journey in this universe, where we’re “traveling through casual space”, our journey in our global space and history, but also about our journey towards what’s ahead of us.
A short spin around the inspiration behind the name "LAUREL" and how this journal seeks to explore the many facets of our inner and outer world with a balanced, conscious and creative approach towards leading a life to love and cherish.

I want to meet the good side of the world, you know, the real good. The one that inspires people to be kind and good to each other, the one that helps them become better individuals, better friends, better parents, better neighbours. That world where I can put my hands to work, my mind to create and my heart to give it a good beat.
