Sacred Economics : Money, Gift & Society in the Age of Transition

Sacred Economics
by Charles Eisenstein

Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth. Today, these trends have reached their extreme—but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being. Today, these trends have reached their extreme – but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.

In keeping with one of the main themes of the book, gift economics, Charles has made the full text of the book available online as a gift. If you feel moved to send Charles a return gift, you may do so on a “pay what you want” basis or by purchasing a hard copy.

I came across this gift this morning when Christa Gallopoulos shared the video below on her Facebook page, which I adored. Further clicking lead me to the video above.

I feel that this speaks to the heart of our creative community, a few people in our community are already doingworkaround this topic in some form or another. I’m eager to read what Charles has to bring to the table as it is prevalent topic in our community.

I wanted to share it in case you wanted to explore it as well.

A question that he tackles in the book : How can I share my gifts in today’s money economy and still make a living? Some people who ask this question are artists, healers, or activists who despair of finding a way to “get paid for” what they do…

There is definitely a shift happening around money right now in our culture & I am blessed to be connected to a few of the people that are making it their life’s work to make that happen. I’m also staying open to whatever I come into contact with that will open & spread this topic further because it’s good-good stuff.

Enjoy!


Love,
