What would you do with your wealth if you made financial decisions from the mystical heart?
W&M is a web of people of wealth who seek to align the flow of their financial resources with the Holy Spirit in service of Divine Love and Justice. Our work is rooted in ancient Christian traditions, contemplative and prophetic, and modern social movements for justice.
We offer multi-day retreats and one-day workshops during which we share our money stories with courage and compassion and explore the intersections of spiritual wisdom and social justice. We also share what we are learning through writing, speaking, blogging and newsletters.
We draw our practices from Wisdom Christianity and modern social movements for justice. These practices support inner transformation and allow us to follow our deepest inner promptings into real-world action.

My friend and Y2Y board colleague Stephanie Dodson has kindly offered to host a lunchtime gathering at her home in the Back Bay. I will present a general introduction to the work of W&M, with a special emphasis on engagement with philanthropy. This gathering is meant for new folks in our network who may be considering joining one of our W&M Circles for people who know themselves to have “more than enough” financial wealth. Existing members of our network are also invited to come share something of their experience.

Winter’s invitation is to move downward and inward, to join the plants and hibernators in darkness, waiting, and unknowing. To listen in the quiet depths of the heart, opening to a greater mystery within. Practicing together in silence calls us to the core of who we are, inviting transformation at the deepest levels and preparing us to be in the world with equanimity and grace. This week-long retreat, with a weekend-only option, is a rare opportunity to enter deeply into silence and solitude within a Wisdom community of support through the practice of silent prayer as well as the exploration of Silence as a presence that can be experienced directly by our whole being; body, mind and heart.
