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. For more information, please see www.aftercapitalism.org
