What really matters? Surprisingly, it is beauty—True Beauty.
We have all experienced moments of True Beauty—whether seeing a field of flowers, hearing a child laugh, or feeling in harmony with everything around us. Practicing True Beauty—not to be mistaken for glamour—puts us in synchronicity with the healing of our planet as well as on the path of spiritual evolution. Most importantly, by learning to engage with beauty more often, we can heal our cultural dysfunctions and transform our world and our role within it to be more positive and generative.
Beauty as Action guides us on the journey to become practitioners of True Beauty through simple, everyday actions that don’t require esoteric tools or objects. With humor, anecdotes, and dashes of philosophy, author, shamanic practitioner, and inventor Lisa Z. Lindahl shows us how we can:
1. Consciously practice the pursuit and cultivation of True Beauty beyond surfaces and appearances
2.Recognize and honor the presence of True Beauty while we actively engage in creating it
3. Preserve and return the prominence of True Beauty in our global culture
For the sake of ourselves and our world, we must act now. Beauty as Action shows us how.

Do you know anyone who has not had an experience of discovering the beautiful?
Remember their delight? The surprise? Laughter? Smile?
It might have been the sudden appearance of a rainbow, or a piece of music, or a warm hug from a loved one.
Doesn't matter the form...doesn't matter what or when or how. It is the effect of true beauty that is magical, the juice of shared life and livingness and perhaps fuel of the life force itself.

Now it is time to evolve into the next generation of awareness, a generation that pursues not just information, but wisdom, and on that path acknowledges unity consciousness while fully celebrating the fabulous and intriguing individuation of life. For it is life, that magical force of life, that unifies us all.
