Every month Imagine will gather to discuss our experiences with a certain book. The purpose is to learn from each other’s perspective. We will share something new we learned, how the book applies to our everyday living and enter into conversation that will engage both our minds and hearts.
This month’s book is “The Soul of Money” by Lynne Twist. It was our May book but because so few could come and it is such a rich book to read and discuss I am keeping it for June.
This compelling and fundamentally liberating book shows us that examining our attitudes toward money—earning it, spending it, and giving it away—can offer surprising insight into our lives, our values, and the essence of prosperity. Through personal stories and practical advice, global activist Lynne Twist demonstrates how we can replace feelings of scarcity, guilt, and burden with experiences of sufficiency, freedom, and purpose. Twist takes an honest and critical look at the extraordinary power that money wields over our lives and its profound and often destructive influence on our self-image and relationships. In a consumer society that glorifies the pitch, the sale, and the insatiable appetite for more as a measure of self-worth, ?The Soul of Money? asks us to step back, to examine our relationship with money, to assess our connection with core human values, and to change this relationship and, in so doing, to transform our lives.
I refer to this book often to help me remember that there is enough. You will be inspired by this great read!
