Beyond its use as a device to acquire our basic needs to survive, money is often a tangled web that is loaded with our hopes, beliefs, projections, and fears. As a symbol of esteem, power and omnipotence to some, or fear and insecurity to others, money and its presence in our life can be a source of great joy or can take us the edge of our undoing.
As a pervasive force that weaves through so much of our lives, we are excited to offer an opportunity to dive deeply into our relationship with money.
Through Healing our Relationship with Money, we will bring more self-awareness, compassion, and authenticity to this often challenging aspect of our life.
“I will not tell you to renounce money. That has been told to you down the ages; it has not changed you. I am going to tell you something else: celebrate life, and the obsession with money disappears automatically.” – Osho
Through inquiring into our Money Stories* we will discover the source of our often complicated relationship with money. In this module we will understand the painful patterns from our early conditioning and wounding experiences with money, that keeps us in a state of fixity on how we live, love and make sense of the world and money.
*A Money Story is a personal history or narrative about money in our life. It includes experiences, thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and beliefs around money. They can be person centric or generational and are often influenced by culture, for example money in western societies and economies have different cultural meanings to say communist or socialist societies and economies.
In this module we will uncover the concepts, judgments, projections and beliefs we have about money that are often restrictive and limiting and restore a more balanced and expansive approach to dealing with the money in our life.
In this module we will explore money in relation to self and others. Uncoupling issues of self-esteem, self-worth and intrinsic value, as well as how we relate to others and money, through understanding how we operate in both our shadow and our light with money.
In this module we will learn how to identify our unique stressors relating to money, in either its practical use in our day-to-day life or in relation to others. We will learn how to create strong financial boundaries and understand our obstacles to goal setting and follow through. We will learn strategies to feel better equipped to manage the practical elements of financial decisions and outcomes and gain an inner authority and capability to change any aspect of money that may cause conflict in our life.
