There’s a magical place – a beautiful tropical island with soft sand beaches, breathtakingly beautiful flowers and palm trees, gentle warm breezes, peaceful blue waves and warm sunlight.

A place where the weather is always just right.

No, it’s not a real place. But sometimes it seems like it is! I often go there on a mental vacation. At least, when I’m able to keep my wits about me and remind myself to take a break!

Alumanaya (ahh-loo-mah-NAY-ahh) is where it all began for Steve and me. Born out of Steve’s creative imagination, it’s the foundation for An Island Perspective and everything we do.

Part of practicing An Island Perspective is following the simple, yet powerful principles of Alumanaya – endeavoring to live a life of purpose, meaning, fulfillment . . . a life of exhilaration.

If you’re still a little fuzzy on what this Alumanaya stuff is all about, start by watching this brief movie. Maybe you’ve had a stressful day and you’re being pulled in a hundred directions this very moment. Couldn’t you use a little respite, a tropical getaway, right now?

We need each other’s support to stay the course on this journey. So, come on . . . join me as we continue the joy of living an exhilarating life.

As a matter of fact, I could use a little practice right now. Let’s start with a relaxing walk on the beach. Think about a beautiful tropical island. Feel that soft, warm sand between your toes . . .
