What Is Conscious Living?

Conscious Living® is dedicated to sharing positive news about living a more happy, healthy and mindful life.

Through the joyful adventures of its host, Michael Alexander, a raw vegan chef, and his wife and co-host Bianca, a yogi and plant-based nutritionist, Conscious Living explores the fun side of the journey to physical, emotional and spiritual liberation. From eco-adventures around the world to the latest in holistic health and nourishing spiritual retreats, tune in to Conscious Living – and raise your vibration.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe thoughts are things. We believe every choice makes a difference. We believe in progress, not perfection. We believe mindfulness practices – like meditation and yoga – can raise your vibration and empower you to be better, stronger, happier. We are part of a new global paradigm shift guided by spirituality, sustainability and divine justice for all. We choose to focus our energy on what we wish to see in the world, not on what we don’t. These are the stories Conscious Living is dedicated to telling. Join the movement! Watch our show online here (grab your vegan popcorn for some healthy binge-watching!) or on a local broadcast station near you in over 90+ U.S. markets.

ABOUT US

Conscious Living® was created by husband and wife team Bianca and Michael Alexander. In 2004, they married at the Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine’s Gandhi Lawn, on Gandhi’s birthday, a divine omen of their future life as advocates for conscious living. During their honeymoon on a beach in Bali, Indonesia, the team “conceived” their baby: Conscious Living, a media network highlighting the best in health, wellness and sustainability.

After a successful career in Hollywood as an entertainment attorney, and later, on-air television personality, Bianca grew increasingly disenchanted with the lack of uplifting, inspiring programming on television. Michael, a San Francisco native, life-long environmentalist and holistic entrepreneur, was eager to redefine mainstream news and reshape the future of media to create a more just and sustainable world.

After several false starts, and during a year-long spiritual sabbatical in the healing vortex of Sedona, Arizona, they were guided to launch Conscious Living and the ConsciousLivingTV.com digital platform in 2006. Since then, the pair has produced hundreds of episodes and created a robust international distribution network, including some of the world’s largest media platforms like Aol, HuffingtonPost and Reuters, among others. We are proud to work with a talented team of contributors and authors, all of whom we consider the top experts in health, wellness and sustainability around the world.

Today, Conscious Living is an award-winning online lifestyle destination and broadcast TV show now airing in 95+ regional markets across the U.S. The show is also available on Apple TV (Aol, Vimeo), Roku (Aol, The Food Channel), and AmazonPrime.

“You must not let your life run in the ordinary way; do something that nobody else has done, something that will dazzle the world. Show that God’s creative principle works in you.” ― Paramahansa Yogananda
