There Is No App For Happiness

Finding Joy and Meaning in the Digital Age with Mindfulness, Breathwork, and Yoga

Technology is exploding exponentially. We are becoming less happy. Max Strom tells you how to get your life, and your happiness, back. Technology has expanded at such a rate that nearly every aspect of our world has been affected – yet there has been no corresponding expansion of personal happiness. Instead, we find that the wealthiest societies of the world have become depressed, anxious, sleep deprived, and over-medicated. Max Strom, author of A Life Worth Breathing and global teacher of personal transformation, reveals that we each have internal, human technology capable of empowering our lives and leading us to deeper levels of happiness. In his new book, There is No App for Happiness, Strom illustrates three imperatives to take back control of our lives. Learn that joy and fulfillment require us to be active participants, not passive viewers. We should not strive for a virtual life – but a life truly lived. There is No App for Happiness helps us to overcome our negative presets and propels us into a new and more meaningful experience of living.

A Life Worth Breathing

A Handbook of Strength, Grace, and Healing

We can do more with this life. We all know it, we all wish for it, but just how to do it–that eludes us. In his new book, A Life Worth Breathing, internationally renowned spiritual philosopher and teacher Max Strom shows us the way. His groundbreaking book reaches past dogma in a language that is vital, inspired, and accessible. Strom leads us on a journey of self-discovery as we excavate our past in order to have a better understanding of our present. According to Max Strom, “We live in fear of terrorism but in actuality the most devastating terrorism comes from within us as we sabotage ourselves.” With practical techniques, A Life Worth Breathing offers us a path to transformation with visionary insights on forgiveness, gratitude and self-empowerment. The teachings are rooted in Yoga, Sufism and Eastern philosophy, but make no mistake, this is not a yoga book of postures, it is a guidebook for living. A Life Worth Breathing teaches us that by healing our past emotional wounds, silencing the inner critic that cripples us, and cultivating a yoga and breathing practice, we can elevate ourselves from the mindset of a reactionary victim to an authentic life of meaning, health, and joy. A life worth living, a life worth breathing.


This practice is for everyone; every nationality, gender, religion and age, even those in wheelchairs. This DVD is for anyone who wants to improve the quality of their health, vitality, and relationships.

The Healing Power of Forgiveness

Forgiveness is perhaps the most powerful tool we have for healing ourselves. To forgive another, heals oneself, just as anger toward another poisons oneself. Anger and resentment destroy our lives. Failure to forgive affects our stress level, discernment, and our relationships. Also, for the body to heal, often times what is most vital is to heal the broken heart or spirit.
