Discover how to heal your thoughts and feelings about money to enjoy all aspects of your life.
Learn how to open to self-empowering ways of engaging with money that support your authenticity and sense of belonging — whether your net worth increases or not.
Are you always wishing you had more money?
Yet, do you find it difficult to request the amount you want — and deserve — for the work you do?
Or maybe you overspend and can’t stay on a budget or “underspend,” keeping your money squirreled away, not taking vacations or buying things you’d enjoy, and could actually afford.
If you’re like most people, just reading this and thinking about these money issues has you squirming inside.
We don’t like to talk about money. In fact, most of us have been programmed by society, our upbringing, and the culture we were raised in that it’s taboo to discuss our finances.
Yet by not unearthing and discussing your issues around money, you give it even more power in forming how you live than society’s glorified materialistic lifestyles already have.
You end up forming a relationship with money that’s rooted in fear or shame — I won’t have enough money to retire OR I can’t buy that expensive car, people will think I’m extravagant or wasteful.
Or, you have your self-worth tied up in your net worth, believing you’re not worthy of acceptance — or even love — by particular people or groups if you don’t make or have a certain amount of money. Many of us gauge our own value by our bank account balance.
For most, these self-sabotaging thoughts and feelings about money are unconscious — permeating all areas of our lives without us even knowing it — and preventing us from fully enjoying our lives, thriving as who we want to be, or bringing to the world what we most want to.
So, what do we do? Where do we start?
With self-compassion and curiosity...
And author and therapist Kate Levinson, PhD, will show you how in this mind- and heart-opening hour that can help you start to break free of the grip your thoughts and feelings around money have on you — and your life...
She’ll show you how to start uncovering and understanding your relationship with money so that you can open to self-empowering ways of engaging with money that support your authenticity and sense of belonging.
During this insightful 60 minute free event, you’ll be introduced to:
- Slowing down and paying more attention to money
- Breaking the taboo against talking about money
- Moving out of judgement and into curiosity in your relationship with money
- Finding more freedom in your relationship with money from doing your emotional work around it — without your financial situation changing
- Understanding the cultural imprints around money that may be affecting your perceptions about it
- Experiencing unexpected benefits from exploring your relationship with money — perhaps a heightened sense of competency, creativity, or healing in other areas of your life
Kate has spent 20 years studying the interface of money and psychology, and is the author of the popular book: Emotional Currency: A Woman’s Guide to Building a Healthy Relationship with Money.
She’s helped thousands, including individuals, couples, and groups, uncover and unravel life and financial issues to bring more freedom, creativity, and joy into their lives.
What you’ll discover in this hour is that freedom around money does not necessarily come by increasing your net worth, but instead by uncovering and shedding your false, self-limiting beliefs around money and adopting new, more beneficial ones...
... AND that when you make healthy shifts in the way you think and feel about money, you’re more able to revel in your self-worth — even if your net worth hasn’t changed.
Your relationship with money is something you deal with every day... and this complementary hour with Kate is an opportunity to look at that relationship without judgement and start to unveil where you get hung up in fear, shame, or scarcity around money, so you can experience more ease, comfort, and security in your life — no matter your financial situation.
