Sustainable communities often have a different way of working with money, but how might the personal relationship we have with money now be getting in our way? In this interactive, engaging workshop, money coach, Karen McAllister, will introduce 8 money archetypes and with the help of facilitator, Chris Chapman, will explore their relevance to those of us working towards more sustainable communities and the potential for us to approach our relationship with money differently. We are inviting people to ‘pay from the heart’ for this workshop – come along and find out what that means! For more details on mindful money coaching, please see http://themindfulmoneycoach.com/
