Description

Common Good Espresso Cohort

We live in one of the wealthiest economies on earth. Yet many of us feel crunched for time, stressed in our finances or perplexed about what makes life meaningful. If we don’t make conscious choices to resist these impulses, the force of a materialistic and consumeristic society will make most of our decisions for us. How you spend your time is how you spend your life. And how you spend your life is shaped by your financial choices. When we dream of a world that is flourishing and sustainable, an initial step is to bring key areas of our own lives into greater alignment (time, money, desires, goals and material possessions). What if we dare to believe that we have enough and that we can use what we have to do good? In this workshop, we’ll explore soul practices and tangible skills that contribute to living generously. Each week we will support each other to take practical steps towards greater alignment through readings, exercises, and group engagement. Facilitated by Mark Scandrette, co-author of FREE: Spending Your Time and Money on What Matters Most.

Schedule: Tuesday, October 15, October 22, October 29, and November 5 starting at 10 PM ET / 7 PM PT for 75 minutes.
