Women, Money, and Spirit
February 7, 2015. Save the date! Join Kate Levinson, bookstore co-owner and author of Emotional Currency: A Women's Guide to Building a Healthy Relationship with Money at an exciting one-day convocation bringing together feminist thought leaders in finance, culture, psychology, and religion. The event will be held at Dominican University of California. Co-sponsored by Emotional Currency, Dominican's School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and Gender Studies Program. We’ll explore our deeper, personal, and spiritual relationships with money beyond dollars and cents. We’ll consider the multiple roles money can play in our culture and our communities. And we’ll uncover language and emotion that truly reflect women’s inner experience of money. www.womenmoneyspirit.com.

Well, not you, because we know you would never do that. But for those other people, we’ve posted a new sign in the store: “See it here. Buy it here. Keep us here.
