Join host Michael Lerner in a conversation with the “prophet of consumption-downsizers,” Vicki Robin—co-author of the national best-seller, Your Money or Your Life: Transforming Your Relationship With Money and Achieving Financial Independence and author of Blessing the Hands that Feed Us; what eating closer to home can teach us about food, community and our place on earth (Viking 2014).
Vicki has influenced literally hundreds of thousands of people to rethink their consumption and to value the vast non-material forms of pleasure, security, freedom, and prosperity available to all of us. Her work focuses on the intersection of the “big picture” and our daily lives.
Vicki Robin, a prolific social innovator, writer and speaker, is coauthor with Joe Dominguez of the international best-seller, Your Money or Your Life: Transforming Your Relationship With Money and Achieving Financial Independence. Her new book, Blessing the Hands that Feed Us; what eating closer to home taught me about food, community and our place on earth tells how her experiment in 10-mile eating not only changed how she ate, but also renewed her hope and rooted her in her community.
Vicki has helped launch many sustainability initiatives including: The New Road Map Foundation, The Simplicity Forum, The Conversation Cafes, The Turning Tide Coalition, Sustainable Seattle, The Center for a New American Dream, Transition Whidbey and more. For fun, Vicki is a comedy improv actress, appearing frequently with her troupe, Comedy Island. Find out more about Vicki on her website.
