In 2015 a group of committed friends got together and formed Women’s Emergence with the intention of supporting conscious living, compassionate action and mindful education. In 2016 Women’s Emergence created The Mindfulness Green Cooperative as the vehicle to make that mission possible.


The website MindfulnessGreen.com is intended to be a playful expression that is an inclusive, creative and fun way to promote compassionate action in the world. We serve to protect our planet, people and animals, create optimally healthy minds and bodies and live mindful and connected lives.


We are a cooperative and always welcome your input, contributions to our content and suggestions. We are grateful you are here and honored that you have visited our website.

Trump’s foreign policy of bully and bomb

After sending U.S. carrier strike forces into the Korean peninsula region and conducting joint military operations in South Korea, Mr. Trump has repeatedly tweeted that he is more than willing to bomb North Korea if they test more bombs.

Avoiding Inflammation

Avoiding Inflammation

There are a few main causes of inflammation. It is a normal bodily response to protect us from infection caused by viruses and bacteria. But in some cases the body reacts when there is no danger and reacts to auto-immune diseases like arthritis by causing inflammation. This can cause damage to the body’s own tissue. All inflammation is brought about by the body releasing white blood cells to the affected area causing them to release chemicals that cause redness and swelling in order to protect the body from foreign substances. This type of inflammation is called acute and is beneficial in healing cuts and fighting germs.

United put the hospital back in hospitality

United put the hospital back in hospitality

United Airlines failed spectacularly in showing core values and respect. They realized they overbooked a flight because they needed to send 4 of their attendants to another location. 4 seated, paying customers had to go. One agreed and then realized he couldn’t get another flight that worked for him and then declined. The airline would have nothing of that decision so they forcibly evicted him, drawing blood and the revenge of social media.

Obesity through the ages

Obesity through the ages

If you look at art through the past 500 years you’ll discover that society has both scorned and fell in love with the idea that a few extra pounds were beautiful and obesity was a sign of success. When Paramahansa Yogananda came to America in the early part of the 20th century he lamented that in India his extra weight was considered an advantage and a sign that he was well fed.

Trump disappoints on health care in more ways than one

Trump disappoints on health care in more ways than one

Op-Ed.  When it comes to health-care there are real solutions and systems that are shown to work. Being locked into repeal and replace is not one of those, nor is Trump-Care.

If your doctor prescribes a medication or a procedure you may get a second opinion but you will probably not shop around for a better deal, haggle over it or a walk away and decide you really don’t need it. It’s not car shopping. Health care is a different animal. Free markets are great for running a company but not for running health care.

Two Meals in One: Arborio Rice, Perfect for Risotto & Arancini

(NewsUSA) -It's been said that risotto waits for no one. And perhaps that is true if you want it fresh, but now you can turn leftover risotto into a show-stopping special meal. While you enjoy a delightful creamy risotto for dinner, the question remains; what do you do with the leftovers?

As delicious as it is freshly made, it doesn't reheat well. To the rescue, arancini, those delicious Italian fried rice balls, crispy on the outside and inside creamy risotto filled with velvety melted cheese centers.

Elton John: #1 in generosity

Elton John: #1 in generosity

Elton John supports over 58 charities around the world. In 2004 he donated over $43,000,000 to charities, making him the most generous man in music in the world that year. For many years he has held that distinction. In 2008 he donated 120 motorcycles to doctors and nurses in Lesotho, a small African country, so they could attend to the sick and dying in outlying areas of the poverty racked country. In 1997 he helped raise over $40,000,000 for charity through sales of his single, Candle in the Wind, released after Princess Diana’s death.

Belly Fat

Belly Fat

Belly fat can be a lot more dangerous to your health than fat in other parts of your body. That’s because in addition to the layer of fat near the surface of your skin (subcutaneous fat) the belly contains another, more sinister type of fat deep within your belly called visceral fat.
