Mindful Consumption—Exploring Why What You Eat, Drink, and Otherwise Consume Matters 

Teacher: Susan Stone

Mindful Consumption Questions (PDF)

The precepts are fundamental ethical guidelines for sane and joyous living. In a world filled with competing views and an overabundance of choices, the five precepts provide a commonsense framework, a trellis, that guides our efforts and promotes integrity and well-being. As part of our series focusing on the precepts, tonight we will focus on mindful consumption. One formulation of this precept is, in part: Aware of the suffering caused by unmindful consumption, I vow to cultivate good health, both physical and mental, for myself, my family, and my society by practicing mindful eating, drinking, and consuming.
