“Money's original purpose is simply to connect human gifts with human needs, so that we might all live in greater abundance.” -- Charles Eisenstein
Let's do it again - frugally and drawing on the abundance all around us! Come ready to share your richly rewarding experiences that didn't take riches to do. Bring 1 or 2 specific ideas or practices you do to move toward frugality. Come ready to share specific actions that groups of us can do -- perhaps some of those next steps we came up with in the first salon.
If this will be your first Frugality Salon, come at 1PM so we can bring you up to speed and get your initial thoughts. If you came to the first Frugality Salon, come at 2PM so we can benefit from what's already bubbling in you bringing whatever our previous conversation sparked plus the ideas, experiences, and resources we didn't have time to consider.
We might take up some of the questions we didn't get to last time, like:
• In the best of worlds, how do we deal with our attachment to our money, wealth (or wish for it), and materialism?
• How do we distinguish between need and desire?
• What is right livelihood?
