Is it possible to be a conscientious citizen of the world and grow wealth? The author, a Buddhist and a financial planner, says yes and explains exactly how. Money drives many of our decisions. We all worry about earning it, spending it, and saving it — regardless of our income level or spiritual perspective. Yet few of us understand money’s true nature. Jonathan K. DeYoe helps you create a unique financial plan that is guided by your deepest beliefs, and shows you how to save, invest, pay off debt, and fund your retirement and dreams by building a lifetime income stream. Mindful Money does all this while emphasizing that money is a tool you can use to support your lifestyle, reach your goals, and earn the “happiness dividend” everyone deserves.
Being mindful about money is a habit that has stayed with me to this day. When you finally have enough money to invest in something other than a house, books, music, education in general, a car, clothing, furniture, good causes, ...

From two leading instructors in business and Buddhism comes a fresh approach to making peace with your finances and creating true abundance. It may seem contradictory that Buddhist teachers Kulananda and Dominic Houlder have also been highly successful in the business arena, but they have learned that Buddhist teachings do not require a life of poverty, and can indeed go hand-in-hand with wealth and prosperity. Mindfulness and Money brings to light the teachings of Buddha as they apply to the money part of life, and shares the stories of others who have found the Buddhist path to freedom, creativity, and abundance. Using the Buddhist Wheel of Life as a starting point, the authors explore the mechanism by which desire for money and material things is confining, and how mastery of desire can free us to live peacefully with our finances. Kulananda and Houlder offer five precepts for living on the Path of Abundance, including kindness, generosity, contentment, honesty, and awareness. Through prescriptive meditations, reflections, and exercises, we can begin to earn and spend more purposefully–the key to finding financial peace, whatever one’s income. An enlightening combination of practical wisdom and spirituality, Mindfulness and Money is a valuable asset for all seekers.

Mindfulness is celebrated everywhere—especially in health psychology and spiritual practices, but also in the arts, business, education, environmentalism, sports, and the use of digital devices. While the current mindfulness movement may be in part the latest fad in a narcissistic and therapeutic culture, it is also worthy of greater philosophical attention. As a study in ethics and moral psychology, Mindfulness in Good Lives remedies the neglect of this subject within philosophy. Mike W. Martin makes sense of the striking variety of concepts of mindfulness by connecting them to the core idea of value-based mindfulness: paying attention to what matters, in light of relevant values. When the values are sound, mindfulness is a virtue that helps implement the kaleidoscope of values in good lives. Health psychologists, who currently dominate the study of mindfulness, often present their research as value-neutral science. Yet they invariably presuppose moral values that should be made transparent. These values, which lie at the interface of morality and mental health, form bridges between philosophy and psychology, and between literature and spirituality.
Money-balance is the pursuit and use of money in mindful ways. These ways are generally understood in terms of moderation, but moderation cannot be specified in absolute quantities of money. Moderation concerns reasonable allocations of ...

Does thinking about money stress you out? Does the concept of ‘having it all’ seemed more like a taunt than an aspiration? Do you want to make your money work for you, rather than the other way around? Has the Covid lockdown forced you to reconsider how you live your life and awakened a desire to develop a better work–life balance? In 2018 Kel Galavan was living and working at breakneck speed, spending endless hours commuting, and felt like she saw more of her children asleep than awake. Realising this wasn’t the life she wanted for herself or her family, she quit her job, and with the family income reduced, embarked on a No-Spend Year in January 2019. Her journey through self-doubt and hard-won life lessons culminated in savings of over €27,000 and changed the life of her family for the better in ways she could never have imagined. Now she wants to bring these lessons to you as we adjust to the post-Covid world and hopefully an understanding of the importance of family and health above the consumer-driven rat-run of life in the twenty-first century. Mindful Money is about building good spending habits and a positive money mindset to build a fulfilling, happy life no matter what the income. Part personal story, part how-to guide, Mindful Money provides deep insight into the emotional journey of Kel’s own experience, along with a background on how money works, and details the seven habits of mindful spending so that anyone can build a life of their own design on their own terms. Mindful Money is more than a journey; it is a transformation in mindset that allows for more money, more freedom and more happiness in all our lives. Kel Galavan is a well-known blogger and Instagram influencer, known as Mrs Smart Money. She has appeared on RTE Radio One, 2FM, Today FM and Virgin Media One.
Having money reduces the need to pay interest or fees on overdrafts and loans. Money cannot directly buy happiness, but it can buy security, healthcare and peace of mind. Mindful spending is not about frugality, hoarding or getting the ...
