A no-nonsense Zen approach to our economic realities can change everything.
Is it possible to be personally fulfilled, and also make a difference within our current financial system? If you’re skeptical, business coach and Zen practitioner Kai Romhardt proposes a minimalist, awareness-based strategy that totally reconfigures our core economic relationships: work, consumption, and money.
How do we do that? We need to pause, breathe, and get in touch with our true intentions.
Too often, we think of the economy as something outside of us, as beyond the scope of our individual choices. We’re unhappy with how things are going, with unthinking growth that polarizes our world and condenses wealth at the top, but we don’t know what to do. Romhardt argues that individuals who wield a sharp Buddhist mindset can, in fact, create change through personal decisions: when we can see in to society, and in to our constructs, we become empowered to choose deeply real and purposeful lives.
