Introduction, Workshop 12: Spiritual Practices in a Material World

In "The Wi$dom Path: Money, Spirit, and Life," a Tapestry of Faith program

I wanted to change the world. But I have found that the only thing one can be sure of changing is oneself. — Aldous Huxley, British author (Brave New World)

In this workshop, participants craft a personal theology of wealth and money and set a plan for sustainable, spiritually healthy financial practice at home, at work, and in their congregation. The workshop revisits prompt questions from previous workshops and guides participants to articulate a "credo" about money which states their personal beliefs, values, and intentions. Then, participants plan how they will transform their intentions into actions and make a commitment to follow through.

A week before the workshop, contact participants and remind them to bring with them any written, artistic, and/ or creative expressions and reflections from prior workshops or prepare some thoughts about their hopes, dreams, and intentions for their financial lives going forward.

You and workshop participants may decide as an alternate or additional activity to plan and lead a worship service which brings the spiritual work of The Wi$dom Path program into a community religious celebration.

Before leading the workshop, review the Accessibility guidelines in the program Introduction under Integrating All Participants.
