Charles Eisenstein is a teacher, speaker, and writer focusing on themes of civilization, consciousness, money, and human cultural evolution.
This seminar will tie together three issues under the common rubric of the gift. Ecology: a web of giving and receiving that we rupture at our peril. Economy: based on the gifts of Earth and the gifts of the ancestors (nature and culture). Life purpose: life itself is a gift, and its purpose is not to maximize self-interest, but to give onward.
Sacred Economics: Money, Gift and Society in the Age of Transition. An evening with Charles Eisenstein
Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth. Today, these trends have reached their extreme – but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.
