Money and Mindfulness

with Christian McEwen

June 6, 2020

“If money talks, it is with our voice.” Lynne Twist

Traditional Buddhism says we should give, “courteously, happily, quickly and without regret.” But this is not always so easy. Money remains one of the trickiest of subjects to address, even among longtime practitioners. Join us as we explore our personal money stories through reading, writing and discussion combined with guided meditation. Our primary focus will be on generosity, but we expect to include more shadowy emotions too (fear, anxiety, envy, etc.), while remembering that true wealth comes in many forms, not least our own capacity for happiness.

We strive to keep our retreat prices low and offer these programs on a sliding scale. It’s important that the dharma is available to everyone. Thank you for your continued support.
