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.

Ravioli in mushroom sauce

Ravioli's have always been one of my favorites. My Mother-In-Law taught me how to make fresh ravioli the way she was taught growing up in Abruzzo, Italy.  It's very time consuming.

I Hate My Job!

I Hate My Job!

How many times have I read about purpose and passion in the past 2 years! I want to scream. Practically no one I know is working at their purpose and passion, except me. They have kids to raise and that’s expensive. They have bills to pay, student loans to pay off and college savings accounts to fund.

And we all have a fear of leaving what we know and depend upon for that ethereal dream of making our passion our work.
