About this Event

Fostering a mindful relationship to money and wealth means you can make better financial decisions and plans.

Learn how to create a positive relationship with money and how to approach your finances, debt and spending plan in a calmer and more proactive way in this 90-minute live Zoom workshop. Facilitated by expert mindfulness teacher and Chartered Accountant, Gavin Eichholz.

“Fears and worries around money and financial stability are linked to our survival instincts. We have a sense that financial insecurity or loss may threaten our physical survival. By using mindfulness, we can understand this psychological process and make sure we accurately assess both our current situation and our options for the future. In this way, we make financial and life decisions from a basis of reality rather than from fear, leading to wiser, more accurate and better decisions.” — Gavin Eichholz
