Paramhansa Yogananda

These 4 words can change your life.

If you are like most people, you probably live Outside In rather than Inside Out. That is the exact opposite life of which Yogananda speaks of above.  

An Outside In life is Center Nowhere, Circumference Everywhere.   You are the things that happen to you and you get tossed and turned by everything that happens in life. You walk into a room and become the energy of the room. Using the image of the wheel, you live most of life on the rim affected by everything thing that happens.

Or perhaps you live life from the wheels spokes. If you live here, you think I am what I do. You define yourself by your work, or think of yourself as a dad or a mom, a banker or a shop keeper. You think you are what you do.

But you are neither the things that happen to you (the rim) or the things you do (the spokes),  Your are not your successes nor your failures. You are not better if people like you, nor worse if they don’t. As hard as it might be to believe, who you are is untouched by any of this.

Though you might not realise it yet, you have the potential to  walk into a room and uplift it, not by your words or your actions, but by who you are.  

This presence is intoxicating. It comes from those who know themselves from the Inside Out. These are the few that live Center Everywhere, Circumference Nowhere.

The fact that you are here now reading this means the world is calling you. Do not be afraid. I am holding the space for you to go within and LIVE INSIDE OUT.

The Mosaic is a story that touches your heart and soothes your soul. This is what you will experience when you read its words, but that is only one part of the story. The story of its words.

There is another story that is in the space that exists between its words.

It should come as no surprise to the reader, that a story that speaks of seeing what you can’t see, would use its words to only hint at hidden stories it wants to invite you to read.

What you experience beyond the words of the story is really what The Mosaic is all about.  I believe a book that can help you see something you never saw before, is a book worth reading.

Think about it. Perspective changes everything. The skyscrapers in your city, the mountains you climb, the park you walk in, the lake where you swim, the distances between things that on a day by day basis that seem large to us, but from a plane at elevation suddenly seem really small.

The closer we are to something, the bigger it appears. This is not only true for objects, it is true for the beliefs we hold, the people we surround ourselves with, the thoughts we think.

One change of perception changes your entire reality.






We live in the most connected time the world has ever know, but so many of us feel disconnected. We are a divided nation and world. We fight each other from our silo’s taking sides one against the other over skin color, sex equality, environment, borders, religion, and politics. We shout over each other, rather than listening to what each other is trying to say.

Tim Sloan, CEO of Wells Fargo said he feels the lack of Social Cohesion is one of the biggest problem our world faces today.  “I think the biggest challenge we have in our country is the inability of folks to listen to another’s opinion.  These are basic lessons our parents all taught us.  We don’t always have to agree.  But to be successful, we have to learn to work together.”  

Somewhere along the line, things stopped working. This is no longer the world any of us want our children to inherit. The old paradigm is not working. 

Buckminster Fuller said, “You cannot solve the problems of the old paradigm with old paradigm thinking. You must create a new paradigm that makes the old paradigm obsolete.”

The new paradigm is not authoritarian but connected.  Each piece is an integral part of the whole, each voice essential in creating a CONNECTED LIFE. It is time for us to UNZIP THE SKY, come together and listen to each other. The congregation of like and unlike minds will illuminate us to new ways of seeing and perhaps in this way, we will find answers that individually we could never know.   

The currency of this new paradigm is connection.

Most of us surround ourselves with people who think like us. For many of us living in like minded communities is not only a dream we believe in but something we desperately seek.  We got used to being lone wolves howling on the mountain top, but soon we realised our voices individually could not be heard, we thought they could be stronger and heard by more people if we were to create like minded communities. And so we did and we became stronger.  

But by connecting to like minded people, our thinking became silo’ed and over time we disconnected from those who don’t think like us. In shouting out what we believe, we stopped listening to what others believe, and the gap between our silos got wider and wider. 

The Mosaic Process disrupts those silos by helping us see the walls that protect us, separate us from each other.  The Process encourages us to connect not only with like minds but with unlike minds and invites us to see what we are looking at, differently.




This simple Mosaic Method is surprisingly not so simple. It has become increasingly harder and harder for people to listen with an open mind. To hear what a person is saying rather than thinking about what they are going to argue back while the other person is still talking. When people do not feel heard, they get angry, and our inability to effective listen causes problems for people both in the speaking part of the equation and the listening side as well. The Mosaic Method is just good old common sense, but somehow we have forgotten our common sense principles.

We have also developed a process, called The Mosaic Process that uses the method above as a tool to gather information from groups of people to helps them discover answers to the questions that trouble their business, their families or society as a whole. We beleive that when people come to their own solutions, the results are more powerful and more long lasting.

It is time for a change. The time for the Old Paradigm of vertical thinking where there are teachers and students; leaders and followers those who know and those who do not know, is ending. There is a New Paradigm emerging, one that is much more Mosaic like, where every voice, and every piece in the mosaic is needed to create it own artistry.

The New Paradigm uses the modalities of HiveThinking, Swarm Intelligence, Connected Intelligence to bring people together so that they can find solutions to problems they could never know how to solve individually.


There are moments in time, magical moments when seemingly out of the blue, the sky opens
and we see something different, a new reality, a world that we never saw before, where we are given an opportunity to initiate a new way of thinking.

These moments are rare, they do not happen all the time or maybe they do and we just don’t notice them. Either way, when they come, the world changes, these are the moments we call innovation, revelation, elevation and pure magic.



By asking questions, and listening to your answers, I connect to you.
I learn who you are, how you think,
what you want and what prevents you from having the results you seek.

Through intuition, discussion and assessments,
I go deeper within you
to find your purpose and see what is blocking you from reaching it.
Understanding your why allows me to understand your purpose
but finding your WHO allows us to create strategies together
and techniques to connect you to who you are and where you want to go.

When we are able to connect to self, source, purpose and others,
we see a life we never saw before and a happiness we have never known.
Connected we are happy.
Disconnected we suffer.
Live Happy. Live Connected. Live Mosaic.





Unfortunately, the life most of us are living it is not working.  Certainly a few would argue that. Those at the top of the food chain would fight and say, it seems to be working pretty well for me, and i guess on some level, they might be right.  But I am not talking here about financial wellbeing. I am talking about how connected we feel to the life we are living.  We live in the most connected time the wold has ever known and yet so many of us feel disconnected. Something is not working.

Through out time, there have always been small groups of people who have come together and questioned the status quo. They are the innovators, the disruptors, the rebel rousers, the ones who see a different world and are crazy enough to believe they can influence the world they see. And they do.

The Mosaic stands at the crossroads of a new generation of connective innovators, of people who are at the forefront in the research of MindHive Mentality, cross functional connectivity of Artificial Intelligence, Alien Intelligence and Human Intelligence. Space Travel will disrupt our belief that Earth is the only planet where life exist, we will conquer gravity, and the intersection of science and spirituality will show conclusively that we are all connected.


We live in the most exciting time, the world has ever known. We are more connected than we have ever been and the ratio of exponential change is happening faster than it has ever happened.

Most of what we currently know will become obsolete within the next 20-30 years. We will become multi-planetary beings and the time it takes to travel on this planet will so greatly diminish that people will start to commute across the planet for work. The products and services we have become so familiar with will vanish, along with the jobs that have made those products and services, along with people’s identity of who they are. It will be replaced by Artificial Intelligence, 3D Printing and Augmented Reality. Information will travel faster as will people as we disrupt the laws of gravity and find new sustainable sources of energy. Those who master the art of connectivity will be the new caretakers of prosperity.

Those who are able to predict and answer the needs created by the exponential growth of technology and are able to translate and redefine human purpose to give significance again to the common people, will be the ones that hold the key to future prosperity and growth of our economy.

This simple story of The Mosaic is a portal for the masses to experience a new paradigm that opens the moment they realize that what they see is not what is, but only what they see. What then becomes possible?


The 9 MindHacks of The Mosaic:

1: innovation happens when you see what can’t be seen.

2: separateness is an illusion. everything is connected.

3: create like and unlike minded communities.

4: past, present and future are all connected. change one and all change

5: connection furthers happiness. disconnection furthers suffering

6: The new practice is listening.

7: ordinary is the new extraordinary

8: emptiness is the new opportunity.

9: the currency of the new paradigm is connectivity.

Are you prepared for a future that is accelerating toward you at a pace quicker than you can imagine? Will you and your company be one of the early adapters who capitalize on the rapidly changing landscape and monetize it or will you become one of the “phone booth culture” who is unexpectedly caught in the devastation of what currently is and become extinct or left behind?

We are living in one of the most exciting times in the history of humankind, changes in technology are happening at exponential proportions. Innovation is no longer a sound bite in a companies branding statement, but an essential tool for adapting to a new paradigm. Many of todays top companies will be gone tomorrow. The competition in this new paradigm is not another Fortune 500 company, but two kids in a garage disrupting the functionality of status quo.

Levin’s message is that as the world moves more and more into AI (Artificial Intelligence) and 3D Printing, our focus needs to shift from the making of products and the delivery of services to the Human Intelligence of Connectivity.

Honest, innovative, and insightful, Levin will disrupt the way you see the world and invite you to participate in the creation of your future. Innovations in hi tech will solve many of the problems that exist today and create many other problems. Where will your company be positioned in this new economy? Will you be one of the companies leading the way? Or will you be left behind?

Levin believes the currency of the future will be connectivity and his talks highlight that the way we prepare for the coming changes will either lead us to become the innovators of the future or the dinosaurs of the past. His talks are not doom and gloom but visionary and magical and he promises to electrify any conference that hires him.

Everything is happening in real time right before our eyes, the question is, what will we do with the information; thrive or become extinct?

. . . Daniel Levin captures the essence of the human condition in a way that will entertain, enlighten and touch the hearts of all who hear him.”
-Rev. Dr. Iyanla Van Zant, Author
Host of “Iynla Fix My Life” (OWN)


Daniel Levin has lived 1000 different lifetimes in this lifetime. He left a business that was a household name to hitchhike around the world to find happiness and inner peace. He studied in a seminary in Jerusalem, Israel to become a Rabbi, only to leave one day before he was to be ordained. He ran an assortment of businesses, a restaurant and book store, a market, a meditation retreat center, and publishing company, and he was the director of business development at Hay House leading the company from $3 million a year in sales to $100 million in sales 10 years later. He owned a clothing company, a branding business and a coaching practice and was a monk for 10 years in a yoga order in Northern California. And now he is an author, traveling speaking and promoting his book, The Mosaic.

Levin is a rare blend of mystic and business guy and as such has foreseen trends that have brought the companies he has worked with amazing success.

He is the author of four books, his latest, The Mosaic, being the one he is most excited about. He believes it is a starting point for a series of conversations, a disruption of old ways of seeing and a collection of mindhacks that will usher in a new paradigm.


1. The Mosaic of High Touch and High-Tech  
2. Innovation = That Moment When We See What We Cannot See
3. The new conversation  is L I S T E N I N G !
4. The Mosaic Method – Reconnecting a Disconnected World

redearthThe ‘Ohana of Red Earth


This is the beginning of a new time, a new paradigm shift and it is real.
The time for doing things on our own is over,
the time for like minded communities is done.
it is time for us to come out of our silo’s
and enter into the big open field where everyone is invited
where like and unlike minds come together,
where the innovation to find solutions
to problems we do not even see yet is already happening.
There is a saying that they say comes from an African Proverb
“If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
Going alone will no longer be an option
the solutions will only come when we come together just like in the picture above.
No one could have done what they did on their own.



Daniel Bruce Levin walked away from a huge opportunity (to work his way up from pushing a broom to running a billion dollar business), to hitchhike around the world to find happiness and inner peace.

His life has been dedicated to finding the peace and contentment that comes from truly knowing yourself.  His mission has become holding the space for others to find that peace too.

One day away from being ordained a Rabbi in Jerusalem, Israel, Levin left and went to live for 10 years as a Monk in a monastery in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

He became the Director of Business Development at Hay House and played a big part in helping it grow from $3,000,000 to $100,000,000 over the next 10 years. 

He is a rare blend of mystic and business guy, and he believes it is his ability to see things from different perspectives that draw companies to work with him and quite frankly what brings him joy.

He is the author of  THE MOSAIC, a beautiful that touches the heart and soothes the soul, but to this day, he feels it was the characters of the fable that actually wrote the story.


It isn’t the words you say that inspires people, it is who you are.

  • Danny is a one of kind visionary and will help bring your brand to a whole new level. He has helped develop several very successful brands for us here at Hay House.


    Reid Tracy
    CEO - Hay House
  • Danny Levin authored The ‘Ohana of Red Earth, our resort’s story. He immediately grasped what we wanted to accomplish with authoring a book that would ultimately be a training tool for on boarding staff, and a story for our guests to appreciate. Working with him throughout the writing and editing process was not only a pleasure, but an amazing journey of discovery. Danny has opened the door for us to become a culture of caring individuals, to each other, and ultimately the guests that we will serve. Danny has also completed the process by leading motivational seminars of our group to further enhance our resorts culture.
    We would be hard pressed to find another individual who has Danny’s passion and intuitive nature. We are truly very fortunate to have discovered him.


    Michael Stephens
    General Manager - Andaz Maui at Wailea
  • Listening to Danny is like going to church. In many ways, he is a SHAMAN, knowing how to listen and articulate the thoughts of his clients in a much more meaningful way than they can objectively do themselves. I joke with Danny that there is a power to “Shaman Levin’s” Sermons, which are ultimately the output of  how he helps to bring your brand to life – in more positive ways than you could have imagined. He is a true “intuitive” and an absolute pleasure to work with, particularly for those companies and brands wishing to balance both head and heart.


    Mia Kyricos
    President - Kyricos & Associates
  • Danny Levin is a synchronistic master. When you need him, he will appear. His wisdom and kindness is ever present . His toolbox is filled to the brim. Are you looking for a guide? Are you looking for a mirror? Does just reaching out to him feel right? What are you waiting for?


    Carri Levy
    Senior Associate Producer - The Balancing Act TV, LLC
  • I am so grateful to you!  I feel completely different from when we started.  I feel more confident in my work. . . . . I feel more comfortable in my own skin.


    Julie Pankey
    Managing Partner - JMPankey
  • Danny is a unique and unusual individual. He has the sensitivity, depth of understanding and compassion rarely found in people. He has the ability to help identify feelings that result in unnecessary pain for many of us and is successful in their resolution.


    Donald Sabin
    Retired Executive
  • A big thank you to Danny Levin!  You are truly a soulful, gifted and amazing thought, and branding, coach. You have a special ability for capturing my inner essence and incorporating it into my branding and marketing.  You really see me and my potential.  With your help my repackaging has taken my product to a whole new level….I appreciate who you are and look forward to big things in the future!
