A further take on "Your Money or Your Life" available

When I first encountered fair trade in 1999, I was probably primed to the notion of valuing work and talent in ways that matched investment of time and energy by the influence of the book "Your Money or Your Life" by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin.   I studied it in the context of my Quaker community and the voluntary simplicity movement. 

Last year I was proud to be a supporter of a film by Katie Teague that was following in the tradition of those movements.  "Money & Life" is an inspirational essay-style documentary that that asks a provocative question: can we see the economic crisis not as a disaster, but as a tremendous opportunity? This film connects the dots on our current economic pains and offers a new story of money based on an emerging paradigm of planetary well-being that understands all of life as profoundly interconnected.

Find out how you can stream the documentary, host a viewing party, or buy your own copy.  True confessions: I haven't watched my copy yet, but plan to beat the heat sometime soon and enjoy a matinee.
