Mindful Living Revolution: How to Live Sustainably from the Inside Out includes a book, an online course, a blog, and workshops. The mission of the project is to provide a mindfulness-based experiential education in both environmental and personal sustainability (mindfulness, resilience, self- compassion, and compassionate action). The project explores mindfulness with the self, community, and the planet, and shows how mindfulness is an antidote to the environmental, social, and spiritual crisis of our times. This groundbreaking book and course merge the practice of mindfulness with a radical re-education about global sustainability and ultimately offers the path of interconnection and sustainable design as a way of life.
