PeoplesHub Workshop – Connect online as an individual

Healing Money Wounds

Poverty is trauma, and the impact of chronic lack or looming debt can trigger depression, anxiety and anger. We are bombarded by messages about money, prosperity, wealth and value while we spend our days tending to the wounds of unbridled capitalism. We could all use space to get still and explore our values about money and where we feel wounded in our money story and in our everyday reality. Heal your money wounds and reclaim your worth. Join us in an exploration of societal and family money messages that constrict and wound our ability to feel joy and exercise choice at any income level. Through guided fantasy, Fiscal Trauma Healing Cards and an exchange of tips and tools, we will rewrite our personal worth  messages.
