LIVE FREE - a day of practical spirituality with Mark Scandrette
Mon 9 January 2017, 10:30 – 16:00 GMT
We were made to flourish and do good in a world full of abundance. Yet so many of us feel crunched for time, stressed in our finances or perplexed about what makes life meaningful.
How you spend your time is how you spend your life. And how you spend your time is shaped by your financial choices. In the deepest sense, simplicity is an invitation to align time and money with what matters most.
Join Mark Scandrette, author, teacher, activist and coach for leaders and teams as he invites us to adopt soul practices like gratitude, trust, contentment and generosity and practical skills like time management, goal setting and living by a spending plan. He will inspire and challenge us to take steps to live more creatively and sustainably. What’s good for the soul is good for the pocket book and good for the planet.
