We promote conscious media, celebrate change-makers, and produce content that combines ancient wisdom with modern culture to inspire, entertain, and empower the Conscious Generation.
Media of all forms plays a critical role in influencing our conscious. Much of today’s mainstream media is fear-driven, contributing to a down-spiral in mental, physical, and spiritual health—we want to counteract this. We believe in the capacity of the human spirit for positive change, and believe that positive, inspiring media will lead to a healthier, happier you, and a healthier, happier world.
At Conscious Good, we are constantly on the look out for the best short films, series, documentaries, courses and practices on topics ranging from Ayurveda to volunteering. And, we bring it all together in a pretty lovely (if we do say so ourselves) environment online that you can visit anytime of the day or night. No fancy yoga pants; no problem. Pajamas are good when you’re at home. No time for a trip to Greece? That’s okay! Learn about the benefits of a Mediterranean diet at your desk. What inspires you? Who makes your heart sing? We intend to help you find out here.

At Conscious Good, we envision a world where all individuals have the chance to experience mental, physical and emotional well-being.
We are pretty hard core about our values. Here are our top five:
We welcome new ideas and new ways of doing things and, in fact, close minded-ness is a non-starter. We recognize that all belief systems are valid. Curiosity is a goal, not a distraction.
We are who we say we are. We want to get to know more about ourselves and others. We don’t have time for superficiality.
Time is precious, and we will sift through the options (so you don’t have to) and highlight the best of the best.
We are committed to nurturing ourselves and our communities in equal measure by giving back 10% of our profits.
Love not fear is our motivating force. We celebrate positive, helpful attitudes and optimistic spirits.
