Be the Change
is a fascinating exploration of how meditation can not only awaken our latent potential but also transform the world, creating the foundation for a caring and compassionate future.

As a prisoner in a Chinese jail, Kristen Westby was able to find solace by sitting quietly in contemplation. Deeply affected by the experience of walking on the moon, astronaut Edgar Mitchell went from exploring outer space to discovering the vastness of inner space. While coping with HIV, Mark Matousek found healing through group meditation. Seane Corn used her yoga and meditation expertise to work with child prostitutes in Los Angeles.

In the last few decades, people in all walks of life have begun to realize the profound benefits of meditation. While this ancient practice is personally transformative in that it calms the mind and reduces stress, awakens the heart, and deepens insight, can meditation also change the world for the better? Two award-winning authors and some of today's most notable voices explore this issue, reflecting on how looking within can resolve issues such as anger and fear, inspiring a movement toward a more caring and peaceful future.

Interwoven among Ed and Deb's own thoughts on the subject are the words of more than one hundred meditation practitioners from various walks of life, from Ellen Burstyn, Oscar® award-winning actress, to Jon Kabat-Zinn, director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society; from Marianne Williamson, bestselling author and renowned inspirational speaker, to Richard Davidson, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at Wisconsin University.

Enlightening and inspiring, Be the Change is essential reading for all who desire to make a difference in their own lives and in the world.
