A Golden Civilization Conversation with George Kinder
Tuesday, July 23, at 12 p.m.
Imagine a thousand generations into the future there is a Golden Civilization. What does it look like? Feel like? How do people communicate and govern themselves? What does the economy look like? And what can we each do to move towards it right now? You’re invited to a conversation and visioning exercise facilitated by George Kinder, internationally-recognized thought leader and father of the financial Life Planning movement. Inspired by his latest book, A Golden Civilization and the Map of Mindfulness, these structured conversations are designed to move us through much of the turmoil we find ourselves in by creating a positive vision of civilization’s future and action steps to accomplish it in short order. Visit AGoldenCivilization.com for more information. Lunch will be served at 12 and this post lunch lecture will start at 12:30 p.m. Sign up at 978-692-5523.
