About Richard & Stephanie

Richard and Stephanie became friends in 2006. Through a series of conversations about the importance of raising consciousness on the planet, and a shared love of laughter and play, they decided to launch a project that would inspire and support other people, such as you, the reader, to give themselves the experience of peace and joyful living on a daily basis in whatever way appeals to those people. They believe that shifting our minds from fear-based thoughts to a sense of presence with whatever is happening in the moment opens us to creativity and connection. Also, if people were to experience such peace in a bold, communal way, all on one day, it would change the energy of the world, reduce stress and conflict, and improve relationships. They hope you will join with them in an exploration of the possibility this idea holds. It's the next great adventure.
