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 80+ U.S. markets.
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 most recently, Amazon Prime. We are proud to work with a talented team of contributors, whom 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 80+ regional markets across the U.S. The show is also available on Apple TV (Aol, Vimeo), Roku (Aol, The Food Channel), and coming soon, Amazon.
“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
