The Challenge of Money: A Shambhala Buddhist Approach
Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 9:00 AM - Sunday, May 20, 2012 at 12:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
In this weekend program, Joanne Martin Braun, PhD and Alan Schwartz will use the wisdom of the Shambhala Buddhist teachings to go more deeply into our relationship with money. How did we get here? How do our beliefs and emotions about money affect our lives? How can we bring more health and vitality to our financial situation? How might our own financial health allow us to expand our personal vision? Through contemplations, exercises, and meditation we will explore how our financial life is not a problem to be fixed but an opportunity to cultivate wisdom, relaxation, strength, and inspiration in working with our resources.
“There's a lot to be said for living our lives from a more creative, generous and open point of view. Money is an issue we often get stuck on, but it's really only one of our resources.” – Joanne Martin Braun
Joanne Martin Braun, PhD, is the Regional Director of Northern California Shambhala. She is also a senior teacher with a particular passion for understanding how the Shambhala dharma can be applied to working with money as an uplifted part of our path. Joanne has been presenting money programs at centers throughout the country for the past 8 years.
