Deborah Eden Tull

Deborah Eden Tull, founder of Mindful Living Revolution, teaches the integration of compassionate awareness in every aspect of our lives. She is a Zen meditation and engaged dharma teacher, public speaker, author, and sustainability educator. She trained for seven years as a Buddhist monk at a silent Zen monastery and has taught meditation for over 20 years. Eden has been immersed in sustainable communities and organic gardening/farming for decades and teaches the essential wisdom of nature.

Her books include "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 2011). Luminous Darkness: An Engaged Buddhist Approach to Embracing the Unknown,will be released by Shambhala Press in September 2022. Eden’s work bridges personal and collective awakening, emphasizing the spiritual, interpersonal, transpersonal, societal, ecological, and global impacts of awareness practice. She teaches The Work That Reconnects, created by Buddhist scholar Joanna Macy for transforming our pain and love for our world into compassionate action, and teaches with UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center. She also offers online trainings in embodied listening and regenerative leadership.

Eden has a gift for facilitating mindful inquiry, fierce compassion, and relational intelligence. She weaves dharma with her embodiment of deep ecology, shamanism, and conscious movement/dance, to help people release collective biases that have been passed down over generations. She draws upon her own experience of navigating loss, illness, and trauma, guiding people to embrace the mystery and celebrate the value of both light and darkness as teachers of love.

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.
