Why We Are Here:

As with the story of the hundredth monkey who created a wave of innovative thinking by trying something new ( check out www.wowzone.com/monkey.htm for the whole story ). So too the 100th Monkey Studio hopes to promote a better social outlook by improving the physical and mental health of our community, one body at a time, one breath at a time.

The Navajo teach their children that every morning when the sun comes up, it's a brand-new sun. It's born each morning, it lives for the duration of one day, and in the evening it passes on, never to return again. As soon as the children are old enough to understand, the adults take them out at dawn and they say, “The sun has only one day. You must live this day in a good way, so that the sun won't have wasted precious time.”Acknowledging the preciousness of each day is a good way to live, a good way to reconnect with our basic joy.
