Upcoming Workshops

Christian is scheduled to teach a workshop on Money & Mindfulness on Saturday, 6th June, at the Zen Center of NYC, Fire Lotus Temple, 500 State Street, Brooklyn 112417.

“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.

Christian McEwen is the author of World Enough & Time: On Creativity and Slowing Down, now in its seventh printing. Her most recent book is Legal Tender: Women & the Secret Life of Money.



April 14th, May 5th, June 2nd.
