Lynne Twist and “The Soul of Money”

from The Inheritance Project

Lynne Twist is a … transformational coach who has been privileged to work side by side with some of the greatest leaders of our time, including Mother Teresa, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and Jane Goodall. As a result of her experience, Lynne has developed a powerful whole-life coaching process that produces game-changing results. Her one-on-one personal coaching empowers individuals so that challenges and breakdowns that once looked daunting are transformed into opportunities for growth and breakthroughs. People who have benefited most from Lynne’s coaching include . . . many with substantial financial resources who wanted a more satisfying and effective relationship with money in regard to philanthropy, family dynamics and personal power. “The coaching partnership provides clients with an opportunity to take advantage of Lynne’s personal, undivided attention and potent advocacy. An example of breakthroughs that one client has experienced includes a shift from feeling shame and guilt around her great personal wealth to feeling empowered to act on behalf of the issues she most cared about, and then designing a life plan to express those values. “The Soul of Money”, Lynne’s book, is an exploration of the connection between money and leading a fulfilling life. This fundamentally liberating book shows us that examining our attitudes toward money– how we earn it, spend it, invest it, and give it away – can offer surprising insight into our lives, our values and the essence of prosperity. Through . . . stories and practical principles, Lynne demonstrates how we can replace feelings of scarcity and guilt with experiences of sufficiency and freedom. Lynne shares from her own life and work, a journey illuminated by . . . encounters with the richest and poorest people on earth, from the famous to the anonymous but unforgettable heroes of everyday life. “Founder of the Soul of Money Institute, Lynne has worked with over 100,000 people in 50 countries in board retreats, workshops, keynote presentations and one-on-one coaching in the arenas of fundraising with integrity, conscious philanthropy, strategic visioning and having a healthy relationship with money. Here is a talk given by Lynne at Stanford University in 1912 describing her work on The Hunger Project, which she founded. Finally, as you, dear reader, have no doubt no doubt noticed, this blog post is made up almost entirely from Lynne Twist’s own web sites. That is because I have no other access to Lynne or her work.
