What does loving kindness, generosity and contentment have to do with our earning and spending?  How does the act of paying attention to the present moment inform our relationship to money and our material possessions?  No matter how much money we have, we never feel like we have enough, or we fear losing it, or we mourn the way we are forced to earn it.  This curriculum is designed to bring the practice of mindfulness to our relationship with money.  The goal of this course is to inspire students to think differently about the topic of money in order to live more peacefully.  We will combine periods of guided meditation with self-inquiry and text study.
