Taking It Home, 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)

Write a prayer that expresses your deepest wishes for your own financial well-being and the well-being of those dear to you.

Prepare yourself by reading "Meditation on Love" by Thich Nhat Hanh (Handout 2). Then, meditate or pray for a healthy relationship with money and wealth for ever-widening circles. Pray first for yourself. Begin with your deepest wish for your own relationship with money and wealth. Then, hold those in your family or close friends in thought or prayer. Then, the circle of your faith community. Then the community in which you live. Then, the larger world which surrounds you. Make this prayer a regular discipline as you strive to maintain your own spiritual and financial well-being.
