Deborah Eden Tull

Deborah Eden Tull, founder of Mindful Living Revolution, teaches the integration of compassionate awareness into every aspect of our lives, bridging personal and collective awakening in an age of global change. She is an engaged dharma teacher, spiritual activist, author, and sustainability educator, who teaches dharma intertwined with post-patriarchal thought and practices, resting upon a lived knowledge of our unity with the more than human world.. She trained for seven and a half years as a Buddhist monk at a silent Zen monastery and has taught engaged meditation for over 20 years. Eden has lived in sustainable communities and as an organic gardener/farmer for decades and celebrates the essential wisdom of nature.

Her books include: Luminous Darkness: An Engaged Buddhist Approach to Embracing the Unknown (Shambhala 2022), Relational Mindfulness: A Handbook for Deepening Our Connection with Ourselves, Each Other, and the Planet (Wisdom 2018), and The Natural Kitchen: Your Guide for the Sustainable Food Revolution (Process Media 2010).

Eden’s teaching emphasizes the personal, interpersonal, transpersonal, societal, ecological, mystical, and global impacts of awareness practice. She draws upon her own experience of navigating loss, illness, and trauma, and guides people to embrace the alchemy of light and darkness as teachers of love.

Eden also facilitates The Work That Reconnects, as created by Buddhist scholar and eco-philosopher Joanna Macy for transforming our pain and love for our world into compassionate action, and teaches with UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center. She offers experiential trainings in deep listening, relational intelligence, regenerative leadership, spiritual activism, eco-dharma, and the deep-feminine.

Eden’s work has been featured in The Los Angeles Times, Tricycle, Yogi Times, Shambhala Times, The Shift Network, and The Ecologist. She teaches nationally and internationally, including at The Omega Institute, 1440 Multiversity, and Esalen Institute.
