Helen Nearning: Conscious Living/Conscious Dying

This video examines the lives and deaths of Maine authors Helen Nearing and her husband, Scott, who were best known for their book about homesteading practices called Living the Good Life. More than a biography, this hour-long documentary looks at the Nearings' commitment to self-sufficiency and voluntary simplicity and unveils the spiritual philosophy that underlay their lives and work.
