Conscious Living is a broadcast television program covering the latest in health, spirituality and global sustainability. Consider this show an antidote to the stories of violence, sadness, disease, and greed that have become the norm for mainstream media. The time for change is now.
We believe thoughts are things. We believe every choice makes a difference. We believe mindfulness can change the world. It’s time to focus our energy on what we wish to see in the world. Despite what we see on the news and in the papers each day, the world is a beautiful place, filled with beautiful people from all different backgrounds and walks of life who are working together to create a more loving, just and sustainable world. These are the stories Conscious Living is dedicated to telling. Join the movement! Watch our show here, or on a local broadcast station near you.
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 Ghandi Lawn, on Ghandi’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 and HuffingtonPost. We are proud to work with a talented team of contributors, who we consider some of the top experts in their field.
Today, Conscious Living is an award-winning online lifestyle destination and broadcast TV show now airing to over 3 million homes in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area on Channels 10, 36, and 42, and in 55+ regional markets across the U.S. The show is also available on Apple TV (Aol, Vimeo) and Roku (Aol, The Food Channel).
