The Mosaic is a story that will touch the heart and soul of anyone who has ever experienced loss or has yearned for the happiness that comes in feeling loved and connected. As you meet its characters and listen to their stories, you will feel the power of connection, and will understand anew that what you see on the surface (be it in a person, a situation, a company or a government) is never all that exists.
Though on the surface we all appear different, underneath we all want the same thing; to be loved and accepted; and listened to and heard. There is a longing in all of us to feel connected to something more.
The fact that you are here now means The Mosaic has found you. It has heard a voice within you and wants you now to read its story. It asks you to relook at the world around you and asks what might you see or do differently? Imagine for a moment, taking time to listen more to the people around you; to take time to hold and love those close to you, as if this were the last day you would have with them; to stop fighting and start working together to help each other do extra-ordinary things. Can you imagine how it would feel to be part of a connected universe and to know beyond doubt what is possible together?
It should be no wonder to the reader, that a simple story which illustrates something greater would, in and of itself, be a tool to illuminate a path for those who feel disconnected to reconnect again. To read its story, click below:
The Mosaic is an easy to read, innocent, non-threatening story that asks one of the most life-altering questions you will ever be asked. “What if what you see, is NOT what is?”The Mosaic
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.
The POWER of THE MOSAIC is that it is a vehicle to connect pieces together. But the vehicle has no filter. The same mosaic can spread both the nonviolent revolution of Gandhi as well as the hatred of Hitler. Though it can appear at times, that the decision of what is spread seems out of our control, it lies within each of us, as pieces in the mosaic to allow the flow of the connection to continue or disconnect our piece from it.
The PEACE BY PIECE STRATEGY of THE MOSAIC
When you look at a mosaic, the way the pieces connect tell us a story that most do not see. Some pieces connect side to side while others connect only a tiny corner. The power of the mosaic is not in the individual pieces or even in how they connect, but in the totality of what happens when all the pieces come together.
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 silos of like-mindedness. Our voices become more powerful, we feel safe. The problem is no one is listening. Everyone is silo’ed and the gaps between us are getting wider and deeper. We have become more concerned with our silo being right, than in solving the problems in front of us.
We are losing our ability to listen to each other. We speak with anger and listen with judgment. Verbal attacks on people who disagree with us are increasing. Finding common ground is diminishing. And the absence of trust just keeps growing. Innovation demands that we take risks; lack of trust diminishes the risk we are willing to take. Innovation is being replaced by mediocrisy and a fear of thinking outside the lines. We are the change we have been waiting for.

THE MOSAIC COACHING METHOD
Our thoughts become our words. Our words tell our stories. And our stories create our life. Change any part of the equation and every part of the equation changes.
Through questions, you find your connection points. Through listening, you hear the stories that bind you to those connections. Mosaic Coaching helps you determine which connection points you want to keep and which no longer serve you.
See what you cannot see; Listen to what you cannot hear. This is the art of Mosaic Coaching. The more you practice this art, the more you align yourself with living a connected life.
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
