A day-long retreat with talks, master classes, and group practices focused on building an economy that works for all. 

The Satsang took place June 7th 2015 at Impact Hub Oakland. Please stay in touch to hear about future events.

Economic systems and markets are simultaneously beneficial and harmful forces in the world, providing opportunity for billions of people but also causing significant social and environmental degradation. However, it is imminently possible for our economic systems to provide for all aspects of the individual and society. Not only through financial stability, but also by engendering purpose in people's lives, promoting healthy lifestyles, and enabling the full expression of the individual.

Our personal and spiritual development, each of us reaching the heights of our unique potential, is ultimately the best way to make the world a better place. It allows us to make decisions, build organizations, and create an equitable and regenerative economy that aligns value with our values.
