The Mosaic is a story that will touch the heart and soul of anyone who has ever experienced loss or felt alone and disconnected. It is a story of hope and of seeing a world you never saw before. It is, a story of connection and in one way or another, it is the story of all of us.
The fact that you are here now means The Mosaic has found you. It invites you now, to read its pages. Let me warn you, it may appear simple but it should come as no surprise to the reader, that a story that speaks of seeing what you can’t see, would hint at connections that when taken would open doors to illuminate a completely new reality.

DANIEL BRUCE LEVIN
All of us hide. I do too. If you are observant, you can see it in my picture, my eyes are hidden by the tint of my glasses. Strange for someone who says he is a connectivity expert, no?
No. For you see as different as you might think I am, I am just like you. I laugh when I am happy and hide when I feel pain. And it is because I am like you and feel what you feel, that I am able to understand you and know the obstacles you face, because I have faced them too. It is the fact that we are the same that makes me feel deeply connected to you.
But on the surface we are different. I walked away from an opportunity to run a billion dollar company to hitchhike around the world because what motivated other people did not motivate me. I have dined with the wealthiest of the wealthy and sat on street corners with the poorest of the poor. I was one day away from becoming a Rabbi and I lived as a monk for 10 years. I was the Director of Business Development at Hay House and helped them grow from $3million a year in sales to $100million in revenue through out of the box innovative strategies. I am that rare breed of person whose path is an embrace of business man and mystic forging a road that was at one time mostly uncharted.
But no matter how different our lives seem, when we sit together and listen to each other, I know we will find amazing similarities. As a connectivity expert and business leader I work with those similarities to connect governmental organizations, corporations, and businesses by inviting them to look past the surface differences to find the place of real connection. I am available to speak at workshops, retreats, and corporations with the mission to reconnect the world to that which we hold in common.
I am married to a woman I love deeply. She shows me how to trust in the power of my heart. I am the lucky father of a beautiful special needs daughter who teaches me unconditional love, a fun-loving stepson, a brilliant stepdaughter and a very needy Golden Retriever. We currently live three blocks from the ocean and feel blessed to be alive.
The Mosaic is the
vehicle of connection.
When you look at a mosaic, the way the pieces connect tell a story. Some pieces connect side to side while others connect only corner to corner. The power of the mosaic is both in the connection of the pieces and in the experience that happens when the pieces come together.
Those who find the place of connection experience harmony in relationships, business and even self mastery. But all too often, we focus on the lack of connection and experience separateness, loneliness and despair. One change of perspective changes not only the life we live, but the world we live in.
PEACE BY PIECE: THE MOSAIC STRATEGY
As simple as it sounds, our work when we come into a business, corporation or even a family is to re-focus the attention from the differences within a company, organisation and/or family and magnify the similarities. We ask those we work with to go beneath the superficial or surface things to find the one thing they all want. Everyone wants to be loved and accepted; listened to and understood; validated and appreciated. When we find that place in those who disagree, connection happens and all conflict resolves.
The Mosaic Solution
In the most connected time the world has ever know, we have become divided. To find strength, we have taken refuge in the silos of the people who think like us. And though we feel safe with people of like mind and our voices have become more powerful, the problem is there are very few people listening. Everyone has found their silo and the gaps between our silos is getting wider and deeper. We seem to have become more concerned with our silo being right, than in solving the problems in front of us.
What happened to our ability to listen to each other? We have started to speak with anger and listen with judgment. More and more we see verbal attacks on people who disagree with us. They are increasing. Common ground appears to be diminishing and the absence of trust just keeps growing.
The changes needed require innovation. Innovation demands that we listen to each other and take risks, but our lack of trust in each other diminishes the amount of risk we are willing to take. And all the while, innovation is being replaced by mediocrisy and a fear of thinking outside the lines.
Connection is our solution. We need people of like and unlike mind to come together and listen to each other. To find new ways to see the same thing and in this new seeing, perhaps the impossible will suddenly become possible.

THE MOSAIC COACHING METHOD
We live disconnected. Disconnected from parts of lives that were at one point incredibly meaningful to us. As pieces, we live fragmented, but when we connect the pieces ur life together, we initiate a new flow of energy.If you are ready to: 1) understand and integrate the connections to every part of your life (past, present and future), to feel connected to the lives of those around you and the energy of all that enters your life, 2) stop judging the seemingly disconnected pieces of your life but rather allow their connection to show you innovation, 3) leave your comfort zone to see things you don't see now, 4) trust that you already know you own answers and connect to the part of you that is connected to all things, 5) surrender your need to be in control and know that there is something much bigger than you and in that connected consciousness, answer appears, 6) have the courage to experience emptiness so that you can be filled with something new . . .It is time for you to BUILD YOUR MOSAIC. I am here if you feel to connect with me, not because I can teach you, but because together we are stronger, wiser and more powerful than we are alone.
What They Say
“In The Mosaic, Daniel Levin captures the essence of the human condition in a delightful parable that will entertain, enlighten, and touch the hearts of all who read it. This simple and enjoyable story is a new adventure for all of us who desire to connect with and trust more of what is the same within us all.”Rev. Dr. Iyanla Van ZantNew York Times best-selling author; Host of Iyanla Fix My Life (OWN)
“It is rare that a story today qualifies for the true meaning of a fable but this one does. Like Aesop’s Fables, The Mosaic contains one wisdom lesson after another told by characters—some of whom dwell in this world and others in the next. A fun read.”Caroline MyssNew York Times best-selling author
“The most profound and lasting way to learn is through story, and a story that reflects so many aspects of our shared human journey keeps the lessons learned alive in the heart forever. This is one such beautiful and lasting story.”Sonia ChoquetteNew York Times best-selling author
“The Mosaic is a stunning, powerful, timely and magnificent book. The Juiceman . . . Road Worker . . . the Traveler . . . the Street Artist . . . the characters, archetypes, and metaphors within this brilliant fable are intoxicating, mesmerizing, and heart expanding. Daniel Levin provides deeper messages through the ‘back door’ of our own consciousness, resulting in subtle and precious heart-warming take-aways. Highly recommended.”Arielle Ford with Brian Hillard Best-selling authorRelationship Expert and Leading Personality in the Self-Growth Movement
“The Mosaic is a beautiful story with a profound message: Look past all the seemingly segmented parts of our lives and ourselves and find the unity and connectedness within the bigger picture.”Bruce D. SchneiderFounder, IPEC Coaching and Best-selling Author
“When author Daniel Levin told me that The Mosaic was a parable about one boy’s search for heaven, the people he meets along the way and the lessons he learns, I was skeptical that anyone could make this archetypal hero’s journey fresh, new and engaging. The Mosaic blew away my skepticism in the first few pages. Every person our hero “Mo” encounters from the Trashman to the Wise One spoke directly to my soul. I loved meeting the Blind Woman and the Shoemaker, the Ordi- naries and the Specials, and had one deep insight after another as Levin deftly wove each character’s profound knowledge into the fabric of the parable, never once sounding preachy or resorting to platitudes. I’ve been a student and a teacher of self-awareness and transformation for over 40 years, and reading The Mosaic was truly a highlight of my own personal journey. The magic it imparts is palpable and theDebra PonemanBest-selling author; Founder of Yes to Success Seminars; Co-founder of Your Year of Miracles
possibilities it ignites are real.”
“The Mosaic. I knew it would be different. I knew it would openHillary AlexanderPermanent Secretary for MSET - Jamaican Government
doors of insight and pathways to truth, because Danny IS different,
and that’s what Danny does. What I did not expect is the extent to which the Mosaic draws you in with every step on that winding journey, how it connects to our own personal experiences, every raw, searing, emotional loss, with each of our own personal joys, our insecurities, our triumphs! Mo is in all of us. Mo’s journey, his pathway, metaphorically, is the journey we all have walked or will walk someday, in some way—if we allow ourselves the freedom to see and experience even that which ‘we cannot see.’ The Mosaic, in every chapter, touches a chord in our souls, it connects us and it is a beautiful experience.”
“The Mosaic is a remarkable parable for our time. Daniel Levin’s luscious writing style echoes of the Alchemist, as it radiates with joy and guides you on an adventure of the heart. The deeper messages in this book come as a gentle breeze and invite you into the garden of your soul. The Mosaic has lasting magic for the ages!”Denise LinnPublic Relations Consultant, Freelance Writer and Editor
