Mindfulness in the Marketplace: Compassionate Responses to Consumerism
Allan Hunt Badiner (editor)

This collection of essays edited by Allan Hunt Badiner shows us how to look deeply into the items we consume every day-not only food, but clothes, media, ideas, and images. Right Consumption suggests a reorientation for consumers from passive purchasers, who willingly and uncritically accept advertising messages for toxic products, to active, mindful, and responsible citizens who see the dynamic connection between their purchases and their values. This results in effects compatible with healthy and enduring human, animal, and plant life.

Not Turning Away: The Practice of Engaged Buddhism
Susan Moon (editor)

The term "engaged Buddhism" was coined by the Zen teacher Thich Nhat Hanh as a way of asserting that Buddhism should not be passive or otherworldly, but on the contrary, that Buddhists should be deeply, compassionately involved in every aspect of society where suffering arises. Not Turning Away is a treasury of writings on the philosophy and practice of engaged Buddhism by some of the most well-known and respected figures in the movement, gleaned from the pages of the magazine that is the primary forum for engaged Buddhism in America and elsewhere: Turning Wheel: The Journal of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship. Not Turning Away provides a history of the engaged Buddhism movement, an analysis of its underlying principles, and inspiring practical examples of real people's experiences in putting spiritual practice to the test on the personal, national, and global levels.
