Conscious Living® was created by husband and wife team Bianca and Michael Alexander. On a long overnight flight back from their 2004 honeymoon to Asia, 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 30+ regional markets across the U.S. The show is also available on Apple TV (Aol, Vimeo) and Roku (Aol, The Food Channel).
