We’ve all been given a gift, the gift of life.
What we do with our lives is our gift back.
This 12-minute film is based on the book called Sacred Economics by teacher and philosopher, Charles Eisenstein.
Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth.
Today, these trends have reached their extreme – but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.
