A Letter from Our Founder:
Shortly after becoming involved with a group that has a great set of principles and to whom I credit a lot of my personal growth, I acquired the nickname “Life” based on my personal motto to “not facilitate addiction but to facilitate life.”
A few years later, I received my Doctoral Degree in Social Psychology from the University of Arizona and many of the people in my close circles began to refer to me as Doctor Life. So with a nickname like this, I thought it would be worth insuring that not only should it have some serious and profound meaning but it should also be put to good use. Therefore, I embarked upon a thorough examination of my personal teaching philosophies and devised the acronym L.I.F.E., representing “Limitless Ideas and Free Environments”. To this day, this ideological moniker serves as the underlying principle of operation for this Foundation and Ministry.
Although not always the case, many limitations that hinder us as humans are based in our thoughts and ideas. Thinking that we are limited is itself a factor of our limitations and accumulating evidence suggests that our thoughts are not only capable of limiting us but are also capable of extending our cognitive and physical limits. Consequently, I believe that we can help people through the process of freeing themselves from the limiting factors of their minds and by doing so help them create environments of freedom for themselves and for others around them.
In this age of little economic opportunity, ramped unemployment, community safety and security threats, questionable food and water security, corrupt governments, religious and ethnic conflicts, overwhelming poverty, inequality and discrimination, century old wars and conflicts, and the destruction of nature, It’s my belief that a Foundation and Ministry with an empowering philosophy such as this taking steps to remove mental, physical, and social barriers is truly needed.
Our commitment to the community is simple! We want to help empower every individual to be the greatest individual they can be and to help those individuals demonstrate that greatness in the best possible way! Every human being, no matter their mental, physical or social limitation, has the potential to do something great for humanity and it’s our job to facilitate that!
Join us in the fight to facilitate the greatness of L.I.F.E.!
