Charles Eisenstein

Charles was born in 1967 and graduated from Yale with a degree in Mathematics and Philosophy. Growing up, he was consumed with questions like "Where did I come from?", "Why am I here?" and "Where am I going?" He is the author of three books -- The Yoga of Eating, The Ascent of Humanity, and, most recently, Sacred Economics, which Andrew Harvey has called "a brilliant and beautifully written book." He spent time as a Chinese translator, studied herbs, health, and nutrition and educated himself in Eastern spiritual traditions. In addition to writing books, he has frequent public speaking engagements at conferences and smaller events. He has taught at Goddard College and currently lives with his wife in Harrisburg, PA, where he contemplates a new book about "Story" and the building of a more beautiful world.
