The Intentional Quarterly aims to "examine innovative trends for intentional living" by engaging readers in a discussion about what quality of life truly is and how to get it. This encompasses a range of topics from community-building to health and wellness to international development. It features thought-provoking essays and art that consider cutting-edge sociocultural tendencies and initiatives for their added value to our daily lives and to the global community. The Intentional is concerned with evolution – of society, of art, of culture, of business, of technology, you name it – and how such subtle changes could better our lives, our communities and our world in non-materialistic ways.
Each issue will be around 70 pages in length and will be presented as a quality print product. The web site features articles and projects we're working on for the upcoming issues but is not a substitute for the printed magazine.
Where does the money go?
The campaign will fund the launch of the first issue, which includes the printing costs, the production of a quality web site, fair wages for staff and a launch party or two. After the first issue we want to be self-sustaining, but we need your help to get us there.
Why should you fund us?
A lot of dedication and volunteered sweat has gone into the project to get it to this point, all so that we can initiate this much-needed conversation about how to really live it right. We want you as potential readers to have the opportunity to benefit from and participate in this dialogue, but it just won't happen without a little help from our friends.
Who are we?
We are a group of enterprising altruists - people who are actively cultivating personal awareness of potential and existing opportunities to create positive impact in the world. We are skeptical of many of the values that were instilled in us, and so we are questioning everything we were always told was true. Some of the writers enjoy successful careers, while others do not, but regardless they are all searching for their true north - what it is that really matters - in one way or another.
