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! Stream the show on Amazon Prime here or on PBS across the U.S., starting June 2021.
Conscious Living® was created by husband and wife team Bianca and Michael Alexander. The pair 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 television program highlighting the best in health, wellness and sustainability.
Completing 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 begin producing Conscious Living. Since then, the pair has produced hundreds of stories and created a robust international distribution network. Today, Conscious Living is an award-winning broadcast TV show streaming on AmazonPrime and nationally on PBS starting June 2021.
“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
Bianca is the host and creative director of Conscious Living. Bianca graduated from Princeton University with a B.A. in Spanish and French languages and literature and then the University of Virginia Law School, which primed her for a successful career as a Hollywood entertainment attorney at Paramount Motion Pictures and currently as lead attorney for The Kelly Clarkson Show. After stepping in front of the camera to host cable TV shows on Lifetime and TV One, Bianca later combined her passion for media and social justice to launch Conscious Living with her husband, muse and business partner Michael.
A few years later, she won an Emmy for her role as “Outstanding On-Camera Correspondent” on Conscious Living’s original series, Soul of Green, a lifestyle news program about urban sustainability airing on Fox. Bianca is also an award-winning fellow of the Association of Health Care Journalists and USC’s Annenberg School of Health Journalism.
Bianca’s devoted to creating a more just and sustainable fashion industry, and has served as a founding board member of Fashion Revolution USA and executive producer of several headlining eco-fashion runway shows across the U.S.
A passionate wellness advocate, Bianca is also a certified yoga instructor, second-degree Reiki master, eco-artist and certified plant-based nutritionist. From daily meditation, sporting ethical fashion and following a vegan diet while documenting the best healing travel around the world, she’s committed to the lifelong journey of mindful living. In addition to her work on Conscious Living, Bianca has contributed to many mindful publications, including Spirituality & Health Magazine.
For the last 25 years, Michael has served as a passionate advocate for healthy, sustainable and mindful living. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate in economics from the University of California-Davis, Michael parlayed a successful career as a holistic health entrepreneur into his work as an award-winning health journalist, filmmaker, certified plant-based nutritionist and co-author of the e-book The Conscious Living 10-Day Detox.
Along with his wife and creative partner Bianca, Michael co-founded Conscious Living. As the executive producer and co-host of the show, Michael has overseen the show’s journey from a digital web series to a global broadcast television show airing on platforms like PBS and Amazon Prime. A self-taught editor and filmmaker, he has also served as principal photographer and editor of Conscious Living, bringing stories of health, sustainability and practical spirituality to hearts and minds across the globe.
Michael is also a seasoned event and fashion show producer who has produced and directed two Conscious Living documentaries – the PBS feature The Cure, about the outdated standard of care for breast cancer that followed three courageous women facing the disease; and Bhakti Behind Bars, which went behind prison walls to film the work of a small band of inspiring bhakti yogis providing love and compassion to America’s forgotten souls through yoga.
After 25 years on the cutting edge of biological and complementary medicine as a patient, Michael is an Emotion Code practitioner committed to healing the emotional pain body caused by countless generations of colonialism and patriarchy. Inspired by saints of all religions, including noted yogi Paramahansa Yogananda, Michael has been an avid yoga practitioner for the last 20+ years.
