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.

The Beauty referenced in "Beauty As Action" is not superficial or trivial. Quite the contrary. It is a manifestation of harmony. It is many different & distinct elements coming together harmoniously, creating not cacophony, but a positive cosmological flow.
In these days of upheaval and cultural paradigm shifts we need to be practicing True Beauty more than ever before in our lifetimes. Practice True Beauty!
Beauty as Action
All contemporary crises can be reduced to a crisis about the nature of beauty.
Polarizing dualities can’t exist, and luscious diversity may unashamedly bloom in a universe where True Beauty is a primary paradigm and one of humankind’s guiding references.
