Minimalism as a lifestyle

Los Angeles, get ready for another event by the Minimalists!  My cousin Tina and I saw them speak at The Last Bookstore over a year ago. As we walked into the store, it was packed with people, making it difficult to find an empty spot to stand!  Once Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus started speaking, the audience was captivated.  They discussed their personal journeys and how they embraced minimalism (by eliminating excess belongings and simplifying their lives). It was a meaningful evening which sparked conversation and allowed everyone to express gratitude for what they had. It seems like this year’s event (June 5th) will also include storytelling and a violinist! Hooray!



Last year, we embarked upon an ambitious 100-city tour. If we couldn’t make it to your city, or if you weren’t able to attend one of our events, you’ll be happy to know that, this year, we’re teaming up with some of our friends for another tour: WordTasting Tour 2015. And we’re coming to Los Angeles on June 5.
