Combining Yoga/meditation with activism
If global capitalism doesn’t work for everyone... What is the alternative?
Today a powerful few control most of the world’s wealth, while most people work harder than ever, earn less, are forced from job to job, and fall into debt. In contrast, emerging, independent local economies of small businesses, cooperatives and public utilities are building careers and meaningful futures for individuals and communities.
This is the message of Dada Maheshvarananda, a monk, activist, and author of the new book, After Capitalism: Economic Democracy in Action. He explains how social crises are interlinked with personal consciousness, suggesting that finding inner peace is crucial to the struggle for peace and justice.
His practical ideas are grounded in a new socio-economic model based on local, sustainable economies, social justice and environmental protection. Dada directs the Prout Research Institute of Venezuela, and is a featured speaker at the Economic Democracy Conference in Madison, Wisconsin Oct. 11-14.
