This booklet attracts jointly vigorous debates from the recent economics of transition, commons and healthiness, consumerism, and the rising function of mindfulness in pop culture. Engaged Buddhist practices and teachings correspond heavily to insights in modern political philosophical investigations into the character of energy, particularly by means of Michel Foucault.

This poses questions on the restoration of the 'mindful commons': the practices we needs to domesticate to reclaim our recognition, time and lives from the forces of capitalization.?
This is a invaluable source for college students and students of environmental philosophy, environmental psychology, environmental sociology, well-being and new economics, political economic climate, environmental politics, the commons and legislation, in addition to Buddhist concept and philosophy.
