Overview

Mindfulness in the Marketplace suggests a reorientation of consumers from passive purchasers to aware, responsible citizens who see the dynamic connection between their purchases and their values. The Middle Path of Buddhism is not to avoid all consumption, but to consume mindfully in a manner that protects ourselves and all living systems. This anthology outlines a path of compassionate resistance to global corporatization, and offers a view of getting into right relationship with the Earth. Includes the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Stephen Batchelor, and Joanna Macy.

This is an Indispensible book to help you face the blathering advertisements that are telling you how to make your life better every day. The book is comprised of several short essays written by some of the foremost spiritual thinkers of our day such as Thich Nhat Hanh and the Dalai Lama... and many more. Great reference book to bring you some perspective.
