This daylong conference brings together leaders in psychology, social justice, religion and finance to explore money from the perspective of spirit. Examine your relationship with money, and the multiple roles money plays in our lives, culture, and communities. Gender, race, class, and our personal and societal values all directly impact this relationship.
“Whether we are rich or poor or somewhere in between, money tests what we truly value in life. Hearing of others’ challenges and insights with money not only makes us more mindful of our relationship with money, but also enlivens our heart and connects us to one another.”
