"If you are in a relationship, you have two gardens. Your own garden, and that of your beloved.

First you have to take care of your own garden, and master the art of gardening. In each one of us there are flowers and garbage. The garbage is the anger, fear, discrimination, and jealousy within us. If you water the garbage, you will strengthen the negative seeds. If you water the flowers of compassion, understanding and love, you will strengthen the positive seeds.

What you grow is up to you.

If you want to make peace with the other person, you have to go home to yourself. Go home to your garden and cultivate the flowers of peace, compassion, understanding and joy.

Only after that can you come to your partner and be patient and compassionate."

--Thich Nhat Hanh

What do you CRAVE? Sana and James have put a lot of thought into this, and the core values we wish to share with the world, be it in business, family, or otherwise. We boiled it down to these 5 elements we all CRAVE:

  1. Community
  2. Respect
  3. Adventure
  4. Vojdaan
  5. Energy

In this audio series, James and Sana share their thoughts on each of the 5 core values, and what they mean to you as a listener, a friend, or perhaps someone with whom we do business.
