Below is a description of a popular workshop that focuses on the general anxieties and issues surrounding money:

A New Approach to Resolving Money Anxieties and Issues

Do you ever feel helpless, overwhelmed or anxious when trying to decide money matters with your family, others or even yourself?

In this workshop, I will show you practical techniques for reducing your financial anxieties so that you can find solutions to your concerns that will bring you peace of mind.

I will begin by introducing you to a short Family Money Visualization that will help you get in touch with the family core anxieties and issues that influenced you during your growing up years.  Through group discussions you will learn how these fears influence your own attitude and behavior towards money.  In gaining this perspective, you fears will become much more manageable as you will no longer claim them as your own.

Next I will show you a simple system for analyzing your own financial facts on a single page summary form. In learning how to deal with your facts, you will discover how to find true peace of mind by assessing your financial reality in conjunction with your highest spiritual goals.
