The energy of capital is the facility to focus on our realization, mildew market-ready identities, and decrease the general public realm to an never-ending sequence of decisions. This has far-reaching implications for our mental, actual and non secular health, and finally for our worldwide ecology. during this shopper age, the underlying teachings of Buddhist mindfulness supply greater than person healthiness and resilience. in addition they supply new assets of severe inquiry into our collective situation, and will aspect, in time, to regulatory projects within the box of well-being.

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. The 'attention economic climate' might be understood as a brand new area of fight in our age of neoliberal governmentality; because the forces of enclosure – having colonized forests, land and the our bodies of workers – are actually prolonged to the world of our minds and subjectivity. 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.
