With a world steeped in materialism, environmental destruction, and injustice, what can one individual possibly do to change it?
While the present obstacles we face may seem overwhelming, in Most Good, Least Harm: A Simple Principle for a Better World and Meaningful Life, IHE President Zoe Weil shows us that change doesn’t have to start with an army. It starts with you.
Through her straightforward approaches to living a MOGO, or “most good,” life, she reveals that the true path to inner peace doesn’t require a retreat from the world. Rather, she offers powerful and practical tools to face these global issues and improve both our planet and our personal lives.
Learn direct ways to become involved with the community, make better choices as consumers, and develop positive messages to live by, and discover that our simple decisions really can change the world.
Most Good, Least Harm is the next step beyond “green” and a radically new way to empower the individual and motivate positive change.
Most Good, Least Harm is a Silver Winner for the 2010 Nautilus Book Awards. The award “recognizes books and audio books that promote spiritual growth, conscious living & positive social change, while at the same time they stimulate the “imagination” and offer the reader “new possibilities” for a better life and a better world.”

Her book gives a new hope and impetus to those who envision a better, healthier, more respected, and valued world.
