The Myth of Money: A Communal Inquiry into Abundance


The Myth of Money is a series of dialogic conversations (exploring perspectives) with an intention to repair our connection with Abundance. The idea for this series germinated from a communal inquiry launched at the Joysong Collective, an incubator for spirit at work!

Join us for a transformative journey of self-discovery and communal inquiry as we explore the myths and narratives that shape our relationship with money and abundance. In these dialogic meditations on wealth, we will dive deep into the diverse viewpoints, wounds, and deeply held beliefs, and explore how they impact our individual and collective lives.

Our goal is to repair our connection with abundance and discover sustainable solutions for promoting shared prosperity. Join us on this journey to redefine wealth and bring clarity to the way forward in a shifting paradigm!

The guests would include a diverse group of philosophers, artists, entrepreneurs, social workers , philanthropists, etc.
