Dr. Kate Levinson, author of Emotional Currency, will lead an introductory exploration about our inner money lives and the relationship spirit and money. We generally think of money in terms of having enough or not having enough of it. No matter how much or how little money we have,money is one of the most emotionally charged areas of our lives and what we feel and think about it - consciously and unconsciously - greatly influences how we deal with money matters. We rarely think about what money means to us, much less how we respond to money emotionally.
Though we use it every day, we know so little about
how we truly feel about money.
–Kate Levinson, PhD
“Here’s the book every woman (and most men) need: a clear, thought-
ful and beautifully written guide for how to cope with the myriad of
emotions caused by money. Kate Levinson shows how money is both
mercilessly public and intimately personal, stirring up our deepest
feelings about independence, status, and attractiveness, and
terrifying confusion between net worth and self worth.”
- Robert Reich, author of “Then Next Economy and America’s Future”
