“Money enters into every aspect of our lives.’ –Jacob Needleman, Money and the Meaning of Life. “Money has become a collector of our fears….Fear erodes the soul’s function of imagination, creativity, memory, love, longing, dreaming deciding, willing, wishing…and most of all, experiencing the presence of the Divine.” –Robert Sardello, Love and the Soul.
This circle will be an exercise in reclaiming our economic souls via art, film, photography, conversation and whatever our collective imagination can provide.

Bill is seeking artists, photographers, storytellers, film buffs, musicians, and other imaginative characters that might be interested in delving into the soul aspects of “economy.” Contact Bill Kirton
