Mindful Monday Community Conversations - Mindfulness and Money

with Loraine Locke

August 20th (2018)

    Room: BSMC

    Mindfulness means paying attention to the details of what we are doing, in contrast to doing things in a habitual and distracted way.  Being mindful implies having awareness about how our actions unfold in the world and about how, unless we pay attention, we can be influenced by unspoken assumptions, wishful thinking, and concepts that we actually don’t believe.  In Shambhala, mindfulness is coupled with kindness and appreciation for humanity’s inherent wisdom and compassion.  Mindfulness is a tool for cutting through confusion so that our basic goodness can fully blossom.

    In this series, on the third Monday of each month, we will practice meditation 7:00-7:30 PM, and engage in a conversation about mindfulness applied to different areas of our life and society, from 7:30-8:30.  Each session will have a facilitator, but is meant as a time for us to share and contemplate the theme together.

    Monday, August 20th  – Mindfulness and Money

    What is money?

    Why is it so important?

    What are our attitudes about money?

    How did we get those attitudes?

    How can we apply mindfulness to reach a better relationship with our money, one that is more aligned with our personal values?

    Join us for a discussion of these questions, a brief history of money, the economy and more.
