Dear Adventure Learners and Finders

Welcome to the 2nd edition of Adventure News. We are now two months on from our last newsletter and we have been busy. is now moving into the more formative stages of childhood. The teething process is almost over and we have hit the 3000 people a month traffic mark. Alexa has also decided that we are worthy of a ranking within the top 10% of the World Wide Web, Hurray!


The other great news is we have another BABY! Our new site has just been born. Some of you might have had a sneak preview of her by following the links under the meditation section of her older sister is now ready to spread her wings on the World Wide Web. This meditation web initiative is dedicate to inspiring stillness and clarity in the Now age. There are helpful tips and exercises on meditation and intuition as well as informative conceptual pages on living a deeper and fuller human experience. Do you choose a life of happiness, freedom and love, or a life of rioting and unemployment? Meditate On It…

The Now Ten Commandments: Translations in French and Russian

For those of you who have seen the Now Ten Commandments on our site translations in French and Russian are now available. If you have not seen the Now Ten Commandments yet we suggest having a look at these potent energies that are shaping the future.

The American President-Elect
Did He Read the Pay It Forward Section
of Adventure Learning Initiatives?

We think American President-Elect Barack Obama read some of the pages in the new Pay It Forward section of ALI, especially after his statement answering financial concerns in America:

“Even as we dig ourselves out of this recession, we must also recognize that out of this economic crisis comes an opportunity to create new jobs and keep our economy competitive in the 21st century…

Doing all this will require not just new policies, but a new spirit of service…”

Who's afraid of trillion dollar deficits? Not Obama... We think he could teach a thing or two to the people of Greece and China who have decided rioting and mob mentality is the best way to overcome economic down turns and financial fears. Or, maybe they should just check out the new Pay It Forward section of ALI. Our Mentors on a Mission are all about a new level of service and appreciation in the world. We spoke of running the opposite direction to the lemmings in the last edition of Adventure News. Well, now we are offering you a concrete forum that is all about running the opposite direction to the chaos and fear mongers out there.

The Information Age is over. Even the web is aware of this. The average surfer is now seeking the best information wave of value and service. Our Pay It Forward Circle of Life Forum is all about creating those waves. We offer you a place to inspire and share your knowledge, skills and services. Now you can really put into action the act of service and appreciation by inspiring people through sharing and living an inspiring life.
