“So it was decided. . . . We would walk away from security and abundance in the spirit of realigned values.”

Ginny and her husband Mark decided to reinvent their world. Packing up three kids and a dog, they left a thriving dance studio and moved to NW Georgia.

However, as they traded stability for a stab at self-sustainability, their million-dollar quest to set up a modest life became a scramble to figure out how to navigate the complicated world of simple living. 

In My Million-Dollar Donkey: The Price I Paid for Wanting to Live Simply, Ginny honestly recounts the four years she and her family gave to their complex attempt to forge a life that would lead to stronger relationships with the environment, community and, most importantly, one another. But change isn’t easy because, when we move, we take ourselves along…

Eventually, Ginny and Mark face a difficult question: what does a couple do when they look at the mountains together, but can’t agree on the best path to get past them?

Award-winning author Ginny East has an MFA in creative writing from Lesley University, as well as a BA from Eckerd College. A nationally recognized dance teacher, she left her hectic dance-driven life to try her hand at country living. Lessons learned, Ginny is now an E-RYT-500 yoga teacher and Reiki master and the owner and director of Heartwood Retreat Center, a 7-acre holistic learning center in Florida with classes in yoga, writing, and sustainable living.
