The Transformative Power of Sufficiency & Gratefulness
This brand new eCourse features Lynne Twist & Brother David Steindl-Rast, interviewed by Sara Vetter. In this course, participants will learn about the power of focusing their awareness on the gifts, opportunities, and commitments in their lives.
Cultivating the practice of gratefulness and sufficiency helps us recognize that we may not need new goals or big changes in order to be deeply happy. Re-orienting to the multitude of “currencies” and the natural flow of resources in our lives offers an alternative path to happiness.
This 6-week eCourse will be offered starting on May 17th, 2017.
In an era bloated with data, we are starved for wisdom.
The Soul of Money Workshop
Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Life
For most of us, anxiety and confused feelings about money are an obstacle to personal and organizational success. A dysfunctional relationship with money can hold us back from achieving our highest potential and realizing our loftiest goals.
This workshop will transform your relationship with money by providing you with an opportunity to deeply explore how your highest aspirations can be supported and nurtured by money, rather than subverted by the constant anxiety and quest for money that is the product of our consumer culture.
By looking closely at your own financial “story” and the ways your beliefs about money have limited and constricted your life, you are empowered to re-conceptualize money as a tool to realize your best Self. As a result of this workshop, you will:
- Experience a new sense of freedom and joy in your relationship with money.
- Discover wholesome ways to earn, save, spend, invest and contribute.
- Appreciate the power and presence of your existing resources.
- Come to know your own sufficiency and natural prosperity.
Lynne Twist has the amazing gift of reconnecting us with our selves. Her workshop awakened me from a consumptive, competitive mindset and launched me into a journey completely aligned with my values. Through her shining example, Lynne has literally altered the course of my life and how I participate in it.

Taking Lynne’s workshop marked a pivotal turning point in both my understanding of how money works, and my professional development as a fundraiser. With this unique perspective, I was able to transform many of my own negative attitudes about raising money, which immediately impacted my effectiveness.
Lynne Twist’s Soul of Money workshop is a fantastic opportunity to remind, re-awaken and re-vitalize one’s purpose in life with one’s values and money.
The Soul of Money will likely forever transform how you relate to money, and liberate you into transforming how money flows in the world and in your life. No, money does not have a soul, but energy does. Lynne brilliantly shows the wisdom on the old saw: “Money is like manure. If you pile it up, it stinks. When you spread it around, it can fertilize the landscape.”
