Universal Responsibility

Everything is the product of one universal creative effort. There is nothing dead in Nature. Everything is organic and living, and therefore the whole world appears to be a living organism.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Jilljoanne™ was created with a purpose beyond crafting beautiful bags for men and women, an amount of proceeds are donated to an annual think-tank led by Columbia University. Below is an excerpt from an article written about the program:

“Mainstream psychology programs traditionally exist in the realm of academic language and empirical fact, keeping the supernatural at arm’s length. But in January, Columbia began a spirituality concentration in its clinical psychology master’s program, and last month, the university created a broader program, the Spirituality and Mind-Body Institute, to conduct research and host colloquia.”

The full article can be found at this link.

Jilljoanne ™ recognizes Lisa Miller for her work, and values how important scientific research on spiritual based psychology is. It is exciting and an honor to be on a new and beautiful frontier where science meets spirit.  A notion that we are all in this together.
