Ever wanted to create a manifesto, a personal declaration of how you want to live your life? In this new solocast on the podcast, I share my story of creating manifestos, more about what they are, the many different ways that we can express them, and an invitation for you to create your own!
In this Episode:
- The full circle moment with my two children this summer that reminded me of the power of having a manifesto.
- The meaning and origin of the word manifesto.
How I came to create my first manifesto through a course with Jonathan Fields of the Good Life Project Podcast.
- Five different suggestions for expressing a manifesto.
- A reading of my Becoming 50 Manifesto that I created through Book Spine Poetry.
This Episode’s Challenge:
Create your own manifesto. Share it with us in the Mother’s Quest Facebook Community, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or tell someone special in your life. Declare it to others to make it real. If you’d like some support to move you through a reflective process to help you clarify your manifesto, we’ve created a self-guided Manifesto Challenge Course in Mother’s Quest MemberVault.

- Ep 63: A Maker’s Journey to a Good Life with Jonathan Fields
- Ep 61: Reclaiming Ourselves in Motherhood: Revisited with Graeme Seabrook
- Ep 89: Seeking Wonder and Mondo Beyondo Manifestos with Andrea Scher
- Manifesto Challenge Course – A 7-day self-guided experience that will move you through a series of reflective prompts to support you in creating or refining a “manifesto” of your own
