FINDING THE NAME

Our name BODHIST |’bōdist| was derived from BODHIDHARMA |boh-di-duhr-muh|. An ancient monk, known for attaining the “highest teaching of enlightenment,” & “essential character of one’s own nature.”

In different cultures, BODHIDHARMA is seen as a symbol of perseverance and determination. Therefore, BODHIST’s character is determination of enlightenment for people, a true place in the cosmic order (positive thinking) of balancing act between man & nature.”

Strategy

Awareness is the first step to making a difference. It’s a process: as I grow in my eco-consciousness, I also grow in my own awareness of the ways my actions pollute the environment. When a sustainable lifestyle became the norm for me, I found it enjoyable and challenging at the same time.  
It took real heart to sustain it: my eco-conscious lifestyle became my passion, and my passion led me to start BODHIST. I find it rewarding to share my passion with you and make a positive impact on our environment. Through Bodhist, I help others get the tools to find their passion in an environmentally sustainable and healthy lifestyle.
