Financial Freedom for Holistic Centers:
Unwinding your organizational money tangles

The goal of this course is to free the board and management teams of Holistic Centers from blocks around money,
as well as members in Community and Ecovillages.
This will let you achieve the financial results your organization needs to thrive.

When your board and management team haven’t untangled their money issues, the organization will be led by their emotional and unconscious beliefs and patterns of scarcity and fear around money:

Fundraising leads aren’t properly pursued

Big decisions are fed by fear

Critical projects get paralyzed by conflict

The non-profit scarcity mindset undermines growth

The organization is held back from reaching goals or fulfilling its vision

Organizations waste or miss out on raising thousands or even millions of dollars because of the personal money issues that team members inevitably bring with them. This is unavoidable – we all have money issues.

This is so painful! And yet, we don’t talk about money stuff. It’s taboo.
That’s why the patterns remain unconscious. And that’s where money coaching comes in.

Afterwards, you may want to engage in deeper work – individually and organizationally – to access the full potential of your center.

What Participants Say

I have taken so many courses, universities degrees and classes, which I feel were useless and alien for me, then I did this navigation course, and everything I learned I could apply on my boat and ocean. That was amazing. Doing the Financial Freedom for Holistic Centers online course was the second time I got this feeling. It hit home so I dived into the waters that opened my eyes to great learning. I have been smiling ever since. Helpful to self and those around me.

I gained insight into the whole complexity of the issue which feels empowering. I’d love to implement the learning throughout the whole co-worker body and it’s not just money, inner work is important as well. I recommend the course for people who want to open their eyes to a new relationship with money, for yourself and your organisation and how to move forward together. Even if your role is indirectly related to money, it’s still worth doing it. What you do matters and energetically you see you do have a role to play in the bigger picture.

Further, Karen has made use of that training through her own role as founding member at Clear Sky, and is currently Chair of the Board and leader of Fund Development. Her passion for this arises out of her deep desire to make the world a better place, and her realization that so many amazing organizations don’t have the funds they need to truly fulfill their missions, despite the millions of dollars floating around in the economy. She wants you to get that money and get the job done!
