Money Mindfulness Program
Aug 24 – Aug 28 all-day

Hollyhock, Cortes Island, BC

Money Mindfulness Program

Our very survival depends on mastering the flow of money in our lives. And yet, for so many of us it is a subject fraught with anxiety, fear and even loathing. In this dynamic, cutting edge program we look at money from new perspectives. Our relationship with, and patterns around money are examined as a window into our soul journey. Melding various disciplines, philosophies and economic principles we develop a personal theology of money, employ mindfulness techniques and create new strategies for self-management. In aligning our heart and soul we will create not just a healthier and better flow but a pathway to financial wellness and peace of mind.
