Cultural Wisdom

Mindfulness, Yoga, meditation, Qi Gong… Ancient civilizations already had a lot of wisdom about how to live a good and fulfilled life.

And isn’t that what we all want?

But it’s tough to find reliable and digestible information about the legacies of ancient cultures. And about how to use it. Especially if you don’t know where to look. But even if you do, most of what you find is dry and boring or inaccurate and incomplete.

Our Cultural Wisdom section is a place for you to start learning more about the extraordinary concepts and ideas from these ancient cultures.

But also about implementing them into your life.

We offer in-depth articles on cultural wisdom from around the world. Written in a modern, interesting, and engaging way that will help you learn more about the world around you.

Cultural Heritage

Too often, we only hear about the bad things that happen in other countries. We rarely get to hear about the good stuff or the everyday culture. Sometimes it feels like all we ever hear about is violence and war.

Most of us don’t quite realize how influential culture is. And too often, we take our cultural heritage for granted. And don't appreciate it until it’s gone.

That’s why it’s so essential to discover and appreciate cultural heritage.

It's present in everything: traditional art, architecture, stories, and intergenerational traditions. But also in contemporary culture like cafes, bars, and travel destinations.

And that’s exactly what the Cultural Heritage section is about.

It tells stories about the everyday culture of different countries and people worldwide.
