The Consciousness of Money

Money is interwoven through every moment of our lives. We have an intimate relationship with it, regardless of whether we accept or reject it. It’s an energy that connects us all in an invisible web of exchange. It’s extraordinarily powerful, and when you step back to observe it there is great beauty in the way it flows through our daily lives.

Our financial systems are currently evolving very rapidly and this is likely to continue for the foreseeable future. This level and speed of change creates insecurity for some and opportunity for others. But this is not only about money as cash and transactions. It’s not only about the rapid growth in crypto-currencies and the unprecedented financial freedom that’s being promised. It’s not only about the shifting global economy. It’s also about our relationship with the energy and consciousness of money, the extraordinary system that supports our creativity and fuels exchange across the planet.

The Consciousness of Money

The Consciousness of Money is a deeply experiential gathering that will change your relationship with money for ever in a way that’s fully aligned with life and the planet. Through an exploration of how you feel and act around money you will discover the sheer joy of interacting with an energy that is very much alive. It is the essence of generosity. It is multi-dimensional. It speaks the language of love with every human being. And accepting it wholeheartedly into your life opens you to experience true prosperity.

Led by Sarah McCrum, Jeff Vander Clute, Niko Dujmovic and Lisa Manfredi, the essence of the experience combines deeply connected, creative conversations with Resonance Mapping of a wide range of cutting-edge financial concepts, opportunities and directions.

We blend exploration of tangible and intangible aspects of money, from real world opportunities such as cryptocurrencies to the multi-dimensional aspects of the energy of money and true prosperity. We introduce topics each day to stimulate the conversation and guests are encouraged to take the exploration in directions that most interest you. We guide you to ensure that all discussion is creating direct shifts in your consciousness, energy and your financial life and expands your worldview.

We may Resonance Map any topic that comes up, This is a unique method developed by Jeff of taking a precise reading on the energy and potential value of any option, decision or idea to find the greatest luminosity and awakeness. It can be used to assess the consciousness of different aspects of money, for example forms of investment, business models, ways of giving or individual financial decisions and opportunities. It’s a practical way to help you lead with presence and make enlightened financial decisions. It’s also totally fascinating.

The gathering includes:

  • Understanding of money as multi dimensional with Jeff Vander Clute and Sarah McCrum
  • Introduction to cryptocurrency with Lisa Manfredi (via Zoom with projector)
  • Mapping the consciousness of financial systems with Jeff Vander Clute
  • A love relationship with money with Sarah McCrum
  • The consciousness of giving and new approaches to philanthropy
  • Unconditional love relaxations with Niko Dujmovic
