For many of us, no matter our income level, our relationship with money is rooted in deeply ingrained beliefs and habits that influence our actions. The more we cling to these beliefs, the more likely our finances carry an extra burden of anxiety and avoidance.

But you are better at handling money and wiser than you think.

By working with Buddhist principles, we can loosen fixed beliefs, and learn to befriend—and ultimately transform—the habits of clinging and craving that are at the root of many of our challenges with money.

Taught by Spencer Sherman, longtime mindfulness practitioner, teacher, and founding CEO of Abacus, a sustainable financial firm with Buddhist values, The Dharma of Money is designed to help you overcome your fears and confusion to embrace a resilient and empowering attitude toward your finances.

Learn to transform your financial mindset and make wise decisions from a place of clarity and awareness.

We have this tremendous opportunity to have a new relationship with money. It's not about eliminating beliefs, its about loosening our relationship to those beliefs. Its about befriending our fear and our anxiety about money.

In The Dharma of Money, you’ll explore and unpack:

The beliefs you hold that drive your spending and saving habits

How to reframe your beliefs about your financial situation

How your self worth is infinitely greater than your net worth

How to dissolve habits of comparison and envy when it comes to money

What is “enough” and how can “enough” be a liberating principle

How to approach your finances with mindfulness and clarity
