To celebrate the publication of his recent book, Elegant Simplicity: The Art of Living Well we are delighted to be welcoming Satish Kumar to our Cotswolds Farmshop for a book signing on Saturday 25th May.

Elegant Simplicity provides a philosophy of life that weaves together the simplicity of material life, thought and spirit.  It distils Satish Kumar’s five decades of wisdom into a guide for pursuing a life that prioritises the ecological integrity of Earth, social equity and personal happiness.

A former monk and long-term peace and environmental activist, Satish Kumar has been quietly setting the global agenda for change over the last 50 years. In 1973, after embarking on an 8,000 mile pilgrimage, he settled in the United Kingdom beginning his time as Editor at Resurgence & Ecologist Magazine, where he is now Editor Emeritus – the longest serving UK magazine editor. Satish lives in Devon, where he founded Schumacher College and The Small School, sits on the Advisory Board of Our Future Planet and has authored several books as well as the documentary Earth Pilgrim.

This is a rare opportunity to meet a remarkable man and to be one of the first to purchase his new book.
