Media & PressA young environmentalist meets a powerful Indian spiritual master who shows him how a serious practice of meditation and mindfulness can work hand-in-hand with protecting the planet. The master’s message was simple: change yourself before you try to change the world. In The Godfather of Green: An Eco-Spiritual Memoir, Jerry Yudelson weaves an enchanting and insightful tapestry from two interrelated threads of his life: an intensive spiritual search and a lifetime of environmental work that finds fruition as he grows to be a global leader in the green building movement, a key effort in the battle to reduce carbon emissions and halt the global warming trend.
... brings principles of spiritual mindfulness and stewardship to the (environmental) discussion.
… a fine account of his struggle to integrate social, political and spiritual objectives…a well-done memoir that holds far more insight and meaning than an exploration of one man's singular life.
Yudelson’s blend of environmentalism and spiritualism captures an overlapping sensibility.
Dubbed "Godfather of Green" by Wired magazine––Yudelson shares his determination to live each moment from the highest perspective and in the spirit of selfless service.
