How can we influence society for the better? Author Helen Nearing believes we can do so without ever leaving our room! No matter what our age or stage of life, we can add good vibrations to the world with these simple steps.
Helen Nearing and her husband and coauthor, Scott, made history with their experiments in self-sufficiency. Together they wrote the best-selling book “Living the Good Life” and other books. Among her other books are “Our Home Made of Stone" and "Simple Food for the Good Life." After Scott's death, Helen lived her last years in the stone house they built together on the coast of Maine. Their work continues today at The Good Life Center.
