Engage a different way of being in the world that will bring new levels of peace, joy, and meaning to every part of your life.

Is it time to update your life's operating system?

We all want more peace, more purpose. And we think we will obtain these through hard work and increased output. But, how we actually find more peace and purpose is by changing our internal programming.

Our life circumstances and behaviors are a natural outgrowth of our current ideas and beliefs. Wisdom offers us the opportunity to break through the hidden barriers that are consistently holding us back. Our lives only change when we invest the time to change our operating system.

What got you here, won’t get you there.

Find Your Inner Monk isn’t about joining a monastery, wearing robes, or spending hours in meditation. It’s about learning to see the hidden bugs in your current operating system, and changing your ways of being in the world—ways that ultimately lead to deeper meaning, connection, and creative impact. You won’t be the same after taking this course (we guarantee it).

This is the best money I have ever spent, on anything. Signing up for the year long FYIM course is the best thing have done for myself in years. It has helped me shift my mindset across the board in all areas, and is changing the trajectory of my life!


The material is rich and deep, and the program challenged my thoughts, assumptions and actions in ways that have led to significant personal growth.


Find Your Inner Monk will guide you to discover a deeper sense of your true self.

Each Sunday for a year you will receive a new video lesson and have the opportunity to connect and discuss your learnings with fellow members. You’ll explore principles of monk living that open up new ways of being in today’s chaotic world, and catapult your joy and peace in the process. This is a year-long journey of exploration and application, that culminates in designing a personal Rule of Life that will serve and guide you as you continue your life’s journey.


  • Understand the key to experiencing deep meaning every day
  • Simplify your life distractions and take effective action with clarity
  • Find alignment with your values and build an inspired life
  • Increase connection in your relationship with your yourself and others
  • Develop a powerful rhythm of purposeful habits

  • Design a personalized mission for your life (Rule of Life)

This program would be great for anyone who has a deep down feeling that they were created for more than what their day to day life currently consists of, but has struggled to figure out what that “more” really is and how to find it.


The Monk Manual experience is far exceeding my expectations by opening a doorway ushering more peace into my life.


When you live in a world that is swirling with chaos, you have to find a new framework for how to build a life of peace. Find Your Inner Monk is that framework.


The FYIM weekly modules have been an invitation to pause and examine more closely the systems, assumptions and beliefs that have been underlying how I “do” life. I am more present, intentional and deliberate as a result. I highly recommend this course to anyone seeking to enhance their awareness of the peace and purpose inherent in life.


Who leads the program?

Find Your Inner Monk is created and led by Steven Lawson, Whole Person Productivity Coach and Founder of Monk Manual.

After spending a decade pushing himself to every limit in the workforce alongside his colleagues and friends, he slowed down, looked around, and realized something was wrong. Modern productivity had helped him become a more efficient machine, but was robbing him of his sense of peace and fulfillment. Determined to find a better way of life, Steven began a life-changing journey that led him to launch Monk Manual. Inspired by the wisdom of monks, and rooted in positive psychology, Monk Manual designs productivity tools for the whole person—body, mind, and spirit.

How does it work?

Find Your Inner Monk has two central pillars. The first is the weekly video series, where you’ll get a new lesson with practical tips sent directly to you each week. Additionally every fourth week you’ll also work through guided exercises designed to lead you to deeper levels of personal insight and clarity on your journey towards a full(er) life.

The second pillar is our Being + Doing Community. The Being + Doing Community is the place where you will put your learnings into practice within a community of like-minded people. Every other week we will host community discussions focused on the Video Lessons to help guide our daily life. Within the Being + Doing Community, we will create challenges, provide encouragement and answer questions to help foster continuous growth.

Together, these two pillars not only ensure that you arrive at new insights and understanding, but also that you have the space and guidance necessary to integrate these insights into your everyday life.

What will I learn?

Find Your Inner Monk is not designed to be a quick-fix self-help program. It’s about building a better foundation for every experience of your life so that you can find greater clarity, peace, and purpose. Our 52-week course flows linearly through the following themes:

• A New Vision for Productivity
• Meaning Making
• How Growth Actually Works
• Presence in Life
• Perpetual Purpose
• Eliminating Distractions 
• Intentional Focus
• The Inspired Life
• Rhythm and Routine
• Formative Habits
• Cultivating Community
• Discerning Forward
• Your Rule of Life

In addition, you’ll also be gaining new insights from the community and from personal reflection in our live sessions every other week.

What is the Being + Doing Community?

The Being + Doing Community is a private online community. Within the community we host bi-weekly group discussions - all centered on the Video Lessons. It is also your place to ask questions, receive motivation and encouragement, and share your insights with other travelers.
