Reimagining Money: A Conversation With John Bloom
Date(s) - 01/19/2017
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
City of Lakes Waldorf School
What is money? What can our relationship with money teach us? How does money connect us to what we care most about, both personally, and as a community? Join us for an evening of conversation with John Bloom on Thursday, January 19, at 7:00 pm to explore these and other questions.
John Bloom is Vice President, Organizational Culture at RSF Social Finance in San Francisco. In his work at RSF he addresses the intersection of money and spirit by facilitating conversations and developing programs that support personal and social transformation. As part of this work he has also helped develop awareness of issues of land and biodynamic agriculture.
Bloom is the author of The Genius of Money and writes frequently for RSF’s Reimagine Money blog. In his latest book, Inhabiting Interdependence, he explores approaches toward transforming the conventional habits of mind and practice that have led to today’s economic imbalance in our own lives, and in society as a whole. Acknowledging that money has permeated almost every aspect of daily life, including our relationships to nature and to one another, Bloom suggests we reconsider our personal and cultural conditioning, and our systems of economic exchange. He asks us to imagine how, in the next economy, we might steward our natural resources, work, and forms of capital in a framework that supports and celebrates our humanity and our capacities as individual human beings.
Open to all, admission free. Join us, and please share this invitation to help bring voices from all walks of life into the evening’s conversation.
The City of Lakes Waldorf School is located at 2344 Nicollet Ave S in Minneapolis.
