An empowering book on propelling profound social change by going inward, from a mindfulness teacher and activist who has turned personal practice into movements The practice of self-care is most often touted for its profound mind, body, and spirit benefits. Shelly Tygielski shows that self-care can also be a powerful tool for spurring transformative collective action. In a winning combination of memoir, manifesto, and how-to, Shelly shares her evolution from a Jerusalem-born child of traditional Sephardic Jewish parents to a middle-class American suburban youth who questioned her faith to a young executive in corporate America. As she used radical self-care practices to manage a serious chronic health issue, she had an epiphany: finding true health and peace is not a solo endeavor but one that lives in connection with others. Tygielski considers herself an unlikely meditator, activist, and teacher. But as such, she is uniquely qualified to speak to all today who wonder, "What can I do?" or, "Will my actions even make a difference?" Tygielski's work began as "me" work and transformed into "we" work. In Sit Down to Rise Up, she shows that this is possible for all of us.
