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.
