Living Well While Doing Good (Schaper)
Sorry, this product is permanently out of stock.
Can we really enjoy the world while trying to save it? Many of us want to do both, but find a balance difficult to achieve. Part how-to and part memoir, Schaper's book shows us a socially responsible way of having it all.
The short, humorous chapters are about simplifying: food and children, money, romance. From the Slow Food movement to the lighting of simple fires, Schaper provides basic strategies and spiritual solutions for living well and doing good, drawing from her own experience of working for social change while attempting to live fully.
