All we are saying…

Fri, 06/01/2018 - 08:12 -- Katie Horvath

We have become so polarized by politics, religion, power and money that we forget we’re humans first.  We divide by rich and poor, powerful and powerless, religious and secular, race, status and party lines.  Call me a hippie, but I’m one of those people who believes that in spite of all this, peace is still possible.

The Legend of Mark Zuckerberg

Tue, 05/01/2018 - 12:45 -- Katie Horvath

Have you heard of Facebook?

Of course you have.

The social media company netted over 40 billion dollars in 2017. It has over 2 billion users worldwide using its services for the mission of connecting people to “bring the world closer together.” And when Facebook co founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg first launched his site, he was a 19-year-old student in a dorm room.  

So what happens when the tech savvy millennial sets out to bring the world closer together?

Well, a testimony in front of the United States Congress.

Social Media, Mindfulness & Mayhem

Mon, 03/05/2018 - 09:06 -- Katie Horvath

Don’t let the fad fool you.  There’s more to mindfulness than some new age, “hippy dippy” buzzword that promises rainbow thoughts and inner peace for 5 easy payments of $29.95.  

Mindfulness is ancient.  Its roots are found in  Buddhist teachings of moment to moment awareness.  The purpose is to cultivate focus and awareness on the present moment; not what happened yesterday, last week, or what you’re worried about in the future – mindfulness is about being present right now.
