An Eco-Spiritual Odyssey

A Voyage of Spiritual Discovery Informing a Lifetime of Environmental Activism

Media & Press

A 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.

Yudelson’s blend of environmentalism and spiritualism captures an overlapping sensibility.
