Presented by Eris Weaver
Many communities find themselves in conflict over financial and budget issues…and the current economic situation doesn’t help! Conflicts about money are really conflicts about values. In this experiential workshop we will discuss how to have useful conversations about our financial values - conversations that lead to greater understanding & connection as well as more effective financial decision-making.
