what we do
sutranovum is an organisation dedicated to supporting people lead fulfilled lives. The problem and the solution cannot exist in the same state. We focus on the positive and seeing it in. We recommend Self-Love as the wise place to start and end all your journeys. We are a lifestyle brand dedicated to emotional intelligence, good humor, and psychological growth.
How can we help you? How do you help yourself? How do we see ourselves differently? How do we grow wisely? How do we collaborate happily? How does imagination play a part in achieving your goals? What part does assumption play in your story? What are the conscious and unconscious assumptions running in your programming? What role does fear play in your story? What is involved in the internal transformations that heal trauma and reverse negative perceptions? Such questions are integral to what we do in and with our lives.
Select the area you wish to grow in and engage with us as coaches, authors, workshop leaders, collaborative pollination hosts and much more.
What we offer
At sutranovum we are delighted to engage with you in the following ways – 6 divisions – 5 are products and services and the final is includes our non-profit focus and how you can get involved.
1. Shop includes sutranovum books and many other inspired products
Categories include: Fashion, Apparel, Stationary, House and Home, Journals, Bath and Bedtime, Essential Oils and Perfumes, Games, Drinking Flasks.
All our products we develop in house with various partners.
We follow the wisdom of: “Does this thing bring me joy?”and “Less is more.” We believe in refinement. If you have a bag – have a strong well designed one that lasts. at is multi-purpose. This seems to follow a trend of returning to quality merchandise. Products that are durable and that are made well. For example: we make sure that our yoga pants are super durable, comfortable and stylish.
We source all our products sustainably and when we finish a design we profile it on a crowdfunding platform and on our shop and that way we only produce what we sell, what the market wants. All our products are not about cheap. They are about durable. And very well-designed. That is our focus. We welcome design ideas too.
We have raw silk yoga pants in production. We have babies clothes on the table. We have a number of bag designs being prototyped. We are a shop and yet we follow the now growing trend that “less is more.” Our philosophy is quality over quantity. You don’t need ten pairs of jeans. You need two really good ones. We focus on that kind of product and that kind only. You pay more – but they are exclusive and of the highest quality, You don’t need crap. You don’t need 20 bags – you need three good ones. ‘What you buy might as well be high quality. Why compromise? You are the artisan of your life. Not it’s victim. You figure out how to do it right and enjoy the process.” That’s the philosophy we expound. That’s the nuts and bolts of our business model too.
For the last couple years there has been a trend in San Francisco. The thrift stores here like Good Will have had to turn a lot of donations away – Mary Kondo’s “does it bring you joy/ less is more model is hitting home. People want less crap. More Order. More out of life, to get down to the marrow and celebrate it. American Giant is a business that makes 150 dollar hoodies in San Francisco with Chinese American women and their hoodies are more than twice as good as the mass market ones out of sweat shops in China. They last at least twice as long and are more than twice as tough.
These two trends are at the heart of our approach to all our products and services. They are well designed to the highest rugged standards.
We curate our store with certain titles we find uplifting. Some that are older and in the public domain – but that are classics and that make for thoughtful gifts any time of the year. We also have our in house authors. This publishing wing is primarily focused on inspiring tomes that help you to live more fulfilled, more focused and uplifting lives – we cover beautifully illustrated stories., the wise reading of myth as metaphor, the themes of self love, leadership, ecological wisdom, financial savvy, agricultural knowhow and meta approaches to human and planetary wellbeing.

Our Non-Profit Work (this ties in with our talks and workshops too) – in development – is founded on the following:
Our Vision: We are dedicated to mentored educational programs – focused on everything from seeing beyond homelessness to integrating technology with government and NGOs and businesses to help them engage in inspired work.
Collaborative Pollination Events – a forum for implementing radical solutions to sharing and using planetary sources from the vantage point of an enlightened approach to the application of technology aligned with nature and the needs of mankind A foundation whose focus is on programs for coaching teachers, parents, students and adults (professionals and non-professionals) on the importance of emotional intelligence – but we go further and seek to collaborate with villlgro.org and support their work in developing entrepreneurial businesses.
Plans for free co-working spaces that are funded by philanthropic efforts to reinvigorate economies.
