What Is Conscious Living?

Conscious Living® highlights the journey towards 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 living healthy. 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, our favorite! – can raise our vibration and empower us to be better, stronger, happier. We are part of the dawning of a new world order 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 popcorn for some healthy binge-watching!) or on a local broadcast station near you in over 70+ 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 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 70+ regional markets across the U.S. The show is also available on Apple TV (Aol, Vimeo), Roku (Aol, The Food Channel), and 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
