“Voluntary Simplicity” is a fulfilling alternative to our consumerist society, and it lays out the ways in which we can establish a sustainable future by making conscious changes in our lives: the work we do, the neighborhood in which we live, the housing we choose, the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the transportation we choose, and much more.

In living more simply, we encounter life more directly — in a firsthand and immediate manner. We need little when we are directly in touch with life. It is when we remove ourselves from direct and wholehearted participation in life that emptiness and boredom creep in.
