Sloww Premium in Detail
What are 750+ members from 50+ countries saying?
“I recently became a Premium member. I’d like to congratulate you on developing one of the few thoughtful and well-presented blogs and websites. I now consider Sloww one of my core thinking sites, along with Tim Ferriss, Farnam Street, and Brain Pickings … Sloww is the equivalent of being more aware and appreciating the substance of our intellectual capabilities.” — Richard S.
“I’ve been exploring issues of self-development and self-enlightenment for more than 25 years. However, it’s mostly been a solitary journey. I discovered your blog in December 2019, and it was a revelation. I felt like I had found another kindred spirit who thought as deeply as I did. I also appreciated how it exposed me to new concepts or dug deeper on issues that I had previously considered. In your blog, I felt that there was a community who was just as passionate as I was about living simply and thinking deeply. For that, I am forever grateful! I finally got the lifetime membership today and it was a long time coming. I just wanted to say, THANK YOU for all of your work and effort. It means a lot to me and the others who follow your blog. I look forward to your new postings that continue to challenge my thinking in new and more expansive ways.” — Peter C.
“I just want to say ‘thanks’ for all you are doing here. I’m 69 years young, and most of my life I’ve been searching for meaning and answers to some of life’s most basic (and not so basic) questions. Your site shows me I’m not alone, and there are answers out there. While we all must walk our own path, it is reassuring to know there are others along the way.” — Michael H.
“Keep up the outstanding work you do. You give and share so much world-class wisdom for free, plus the Premium membership is a real deal of a lifetime … The fact that you are a team of one makes Sloww even more commendable. Your articles, the graphics, the layout, and the way you present it all is truly world-class by far.” — Hussein J.
“Premium content is super insightful! If you enjoy reading Sloww posts, then there is no reason to not get the lifetime Premium content. Think of it as personal and spiritual growth on steroids (if you’re willing to read and ponder). Thank you. Your work is fantastic!” — Prakhar V.
“I LOVE YOUR WORK!!! Joining Premium has changed my life … I absolutely love what you’re doing, and I’m SO glad you decided to use your genius to make such an incredible contribution to the world … I am a superfan … I REALLY resonate with your approach, the way you’ve connected the dots, and your incredible ability to synthesize … You’ve done a fantastic job synthesizing very complex ideas into an easily digestible, highly enjoyable masterpiece. Please keep up the GREAT WORK!!! You’re definitely a Philosopher King. I’m so excited to be in your community!!” — Janie L.
“Wow, you have provided me with a great gift! … Truly, you are doing the world a service, synthesizing what you are learning. In a journey catalyzed by your own dis-integration, you are healing yourself and the world by integrating the wisdom you are uncovering book by book by podcast by webinar. I LOVE that you understand and value yourself as a ‘creative combinator’ … I am so grateful to you for your work … Again, sincere thanks for what you offer the world!” — Claire K.
“The depth of your evolving content continues to perpetuate my personal growth in all areas. Your journey continues to resonate with me year after year and your platform has become a beacon … Your content never fails to provide the right direction and momentum for my journey. Your work is invaluable to me.” — Amber R.
“I absolutely love your site, your honesty, your generosity in sharing and how you live. I find much comfort in knowing I’m not the only one who ponders these things! It’s made me feel more connected to humanity, Mother Nature, the planet, etc by reading things you suggest and just taking time to know my thoughts and ideas matter. You’re awesome, and I’m forever grateful!” — Stephanie R.
“I’m glad I am a Premium member, it’s a bargain value … Sloww is deeply focused on finding the really differentiated thinkers and perennial spiritual wisdom. If there’s too much nonsense out there, why not focus on truths that might be universally applicable? He has written so much great stuff.” — Tom M.
“I’ve been enjoying your writing and wisdom you’ve synthesized more and more! Thanks for putting out great things into the world. I feel like each time I take a look at something you put out I realize how much wisdom is in it … Your ideas have really helped shape my thinking, and I can only image how many other people have been positively impacted by you!” — Sean D.
“I’ve really enjoyed Sloww these past few years … I was drawn into your experiences. I feel really fortunate. I signed up for your Premium membership almost immediately, and I am very gracious for your work. Onward and upward!” — Max K.
“I literally look forward to every Sunday to get your newsletter, and it does have very transformative content. Today, I decided to become a lifelong fan of you and look forward to delving into some of the Premium content. Thanks for all the work you put behind this.” — Karthik K.
“I feel a deep affinity to your mind, your journey, and the content that you produce. I’ve signed up for your Premium content (which I think is a complete steal).” — Mike J.
“Your blog is one of the few that show deep thoughts in everything you write. Everything you write is condensed down to the essence, both to leave room for readers to think deeply and also to respect the time of those that don’t … This is the main reason that I wanted to join Premium.” — Khai Yuen L.
“I ran into your blog about a month ago and just purchased the Premium membership a few days ago because I kept finding myself back at your website. Thank you for creating this treasure trove where one can stop by for quick hits of inspiration, and/or stay for hours … I look forward to many more hours of reading of your blog over the next few months.” — Richa G.
“I recently joined the Premium membership you offer. I just wanted to congratulate you because I’m usually cautious about my spendings. This time, I found you so reliable based on the things I had already seen from you for free (and thought that you had already given me so much) that even if I don’t have time right now to read the Premium content I know I want to pay for what I already got, and I know I want to read everything later. I hope this sounds as big of a compliment as it’s meant to be … In a nutshell, massive congratulations for what you do, and I hope it will be of interest to you for a while so I can keep on learning from your work!” — Tom C.
“You are incredible. Never been drawn to a blog as much as yours. I am spending hours … learning so many cool things. The Premium level was a very easy decision. Thank you for your teachings.” — Daphne S.

Why a Premium Membership?
We have an abundance of information and inspiration these days—what I call “why content.” It plays an important role and can be impactful, but it only represents one side of the spectrum.
On the flip side, there seems to be a scarcity of practical “how content”—where the “rubber meets the road” and we meet day-to-day life face-to-face.
It’s time to connect why and how. The big question:
How do we integrate timeless wisdom and modern knowledge to transform our lives today?
Sloww Premium is for anyone who is ready to dive deeper into the art of living and attempt to answer that question.
It’s for you if you’re ready to truly take action to awaken the art of living in yourself—to live intentionally, travel inwardly, be a student of life, and be the hero or heroine of your own journey.
Sloww Premium content synthesizes why and how.
After all, we aren’t taught how to live in school or the workplace. We must go deeper on our own to gain wisdom. In a world of surface-level content, this deeper level is where I’ve found the timeless ideas and insights.
It’s time to move from aspiration to action, from philosophy to practicality, and from desire to doing. Once you have the spark, Sloww Premium gives you the steps. Once you have the passion, it gives you the process.
But, that’s not all. You can take the content to the next level with the online community (launching very soon)!
The Sloww Premium community connects you with kindred spirits pursuing the art of living so you can “find the others.”
What does Sloww Premium include?
For a full list of every Premium post, see the next section below: Where do I start with Sloww Premium?
📖 Deep Book Series:
What happens after you read a book or book summary? What about deep books on the meaning of life? Or books on Stoicism? Spirituality? Self-actualization and transcendence? Even simple living isn’t so simple. How do you apply all these to your actual life? These Premium summaries take another pass at the public book summaries to further distill them down to their essence—giving you actionable ideas to implement into your life immediately. Not only are they more actionable, they are also on average about half the length of the free book summaries. The plan is to have a Premium companion post for every recommended book.
📚 Knowledge Synthesis Series:
The more I read, the more I see common themes between books and ways that individual books could connect to become greater than the sum of their parts. I also often go deep on a specific topic and learn everything I can about it (e.g. life purpose, self-actualization, transcendence). This series is for that deeper level of synthesis.
💭 Stream of Consciousness Series:
Most of the time, I go deep into a concept or book, synthesize what I learn, and then summarize it for you. We must go deep to reach a sufficient level of understanding and uncover the most impactful insights. Stream of Consciousness takes a different approach with more free-flow thinking and writing: What are the ideas or concepts that seem to repeatedly come up? How can we think about the deep questions that don’t seem to have answers? What are the paradoxes that should be considered for daily living?
👋 Behind the Scenes Series:
The newest Premium series is called Behind the Scenes. What does my life actually look like? Do I practice what I preach? How is Sloww doing as a business? What have I learned? This series is intended to give you a more transparent look into my life and Sloww.
📰 Premium Infographics:
Your membership includes a dedicated library for quick access to Premium post infographics. Use it to browse all Premium infographics, or use it as a discovery engine to explore new Premium posts. Download them, practice them, integrate them, embody them, master them.
📘 Included eBooks:
Your membership also includes access to the first paid eBook: Ikigai 2.0: A Step-by-Step Guidebook to Finding Life Purpose & Making Money Meaningfully (+ Bonus Workbook)
👥 Member-Only Community:
Coming very soon! The new online community—”Sloww Society”—is coming together nicely! It’s built on one of the latest and greatest community software solutions (Circle), so it’s easy on the eyes with minimalist design and easy to use with intuitive navigation. If you’ve ever wanted to “find the others” and connect with kindred spirits, it will soon be a reality!

By becoming a Premium Member, you’ll receive discounts on upcoming products and services. Here’s what I’m working on now.

Sloww Premium Pricing & FAQs
I would recommend charging more for Premium … Given the value, I would consider an annual membership fee of $199 or more.— Joe D, Premium Member
How much does Sloww Premium cost?
I greatly appreciate Joe’s comment above, but Sloww Premium will continue to be a small fraction of that price. A $75 one-time payment gets you immediate lifetime access to all current and future Premium content plus an invite to the new online community. Here’s a conservative estimated value of Sloww Premium:
- Exclusive Online Community: Priceless
- Deep Book Series: 12 posts at $7 = $84
- Knowledge Synthesis Series: 11 posts at $12 = $132
- Stream of Consciousness Series: 9 posts at $5 = $45
- Behind the Scenes Series: 4 posts at $5 = $20
- Ikigai 2.0: 1 eBook at $15 = $15
- Total = Premium Content ($296 Value) + Community Connection (Priceless Value)
Premium members say you can’t beat the value:
- “I’ve signed up for your Premium content (which I think is a complete steal).” — Mike J, Premium Member
- “The Premium membership is a real deal of a lifetime.” — Hussein J, Premium Member
- “The BEST value on the internet. I love it! So happy to have found it.” — Blue Pearl Wellness, Premium Member
- “I’m glad I am a Premium member, it’s a bargain value.” — Tom M, Premium Member
- “The membership is probably too cheap. Love your work mate.” — Chris D, Premium Member
Why a lifetime membership vs a subscription?
- “Subscription fatigue” is a real thing these days. Who wants to add another recurring bill to their life? It’s just another thing to clutter your mind, your time, and your energy (not to mention your expenses). A lifetime membership is one and done. You never need to think about it again. And, that’s a cool feeling to know that you will be part of the community forever if you want to be. The nature of Sloww content also lends itself to a lifetime membership. Intentional living, life purpose, mental mastery, and becoming wise are all multi-year (often lifetime) adventures on the hero’s/heroine’s journey.
Note: In the US, the FTC requires clarity around “lifetime.” In this case, lifetime means Sloww’s lifetime (as long as Sloww.co exists). Good news, I’m not planning on going anywhere!
Why is it so inexpensive?
- As you can imagine, I did a ton of research to determine pricing. Sure, others are charging way more—up to $250+ per year. Some also have confusing pricing tiers and options overload. To avoid the “paradox of choice,” I’m keeping it as simple as possible. No pricing tiers. Only one price option and one payment. My goal is to strike the balance between accessibility and sustainability—the price should be low enough that many people can afford it and benefit from the content and community (accessibility), but enough to keep Sloww going (sustainability). This feels like the right amount to charge for now. That being said, as the Premium content library and perks grow, the price may increase over time. So, there’s no better time than now to sign up.
Can I get a discount?
- Since you asked nicely, sign up for Sloww email and get a coupon code for 20% off in your welcome email. You can do that right here:
Can I get a bulk discount for my company, class, club, etc?
- Yes. Please email me at kyle(at)sloww(dot)co and let me know what you are thinking. We can work out a rate, payment method, and the best way to get everyone signed up successfully.
Is it safe to check out on the site?
- Yes. Sloww.co is SSL-encrypted and uses one of the top membership software services available. The software utilizes well-known payment gateways PayPal and Stripe (for credit card payments). Your credit card information is not seen or stored by Sloww.
This all sounds great, but what if I still have buyer’s remorse and want a refund?
- No hard feelings. Send me an email at kyle(at)sloww(dot)co within 30 days of the initial purchase with your name, email address you used to sign up, and reason for the requested refund.
Have another question?
- Email me directly at kyle(at)sloww(dot)co.
