Product Description


"Siegfried Finser has written a book that will turn the world around...This book is seminal in its clarity, impact, intelligence, and integrity. Finser writes what he has lived, which makes the book all the more potent and totally trustworthy. The clear and groundbreaking ideas of the great Rudolf Steiner come alive through this important book. Read it and live it. I give it my highest recommendation." - Lynne Twist, veteran fund-raiser, global activist, author, "The Soul of Money: Reclaiming the Wealth of Our Inner Resources". "The inspiring story of how the Rudolf Steiner Foundation came to be such an extraordinary pioneer in conscious finance, locally and globally. You will never see money in the same way after reading this ground-breaking book." - Hazel Henderson, author, "Ethical Markets: Growing The Green Economy". "This book makes clear that initiatives like RSF need people like Siegfried Finser and his colleagues, not only with a long term perspective but also with a clear understanding what contemporary spiritual knowledge in the field of money means today.

Understanding of what it can do in a positive sense is probably the most forceful source for social renewal today" - Peter Blom, Chairman of the Executive Board of Triodos Bank Group, the European leading Social Bank. "In this book, Siegfried Finser, one of the truly great souls I have known, explains how he and his associates at the Rudolf Steiner Foundation have helped people work together in healing ways around money and credit." - Dr. Clopper Almon, economist. Exploring the wonders of every kind of monetary transaction, Siegfried Finser reveals how all transactions interact with the human psyche. Having evolved through the ages, money is no longer an object so much as it has become a "worldwind" of circulation, moving at various speeds and achieving a myriad of results. Our human intentions give money its qualities and determine its speed and its effect on people everywhere. From object to pure movement, money is now poised to serve our highest goals. As we have nurtured money in its evolution, we must now take responsibility for directing its great potential in transforming social life, thereby bringing healing to the world.

The author gives RSF Social Finance as an example of an organization working to heal our social life. "Money Can Heal" shows a way beyond money as "a thing one acquires" toward money as "movement" among human souls. You'll never see money the same way again. Visit the "Money Can Heal" website for more. RSF Social Finance envisions "a world where a new consciousness is brought to financial transactions, a future when profit is determined by social and environmental benefit, as well as financial return ...a future when it is the ability to enrich human life and sustain the earth's ecology that generates financial support for initiatives and organizations. [RSF holds] a vision of a forward-thinking world that considers the long-term consequences of its actions as essential to right decision-making."

RSF activities include: Investing in Socially Constructive Organizations - thanks to donors, investors, borrowers, and partners, RSF finances innovative and visionary projects that share its commitment to creating a healthy and sustainable world; Working with Philanthropists and Investors - RSF works with investors and philanthropists in carrying forward their best intentions by providing access to capital, with the funds they have entrusted to RSF, to organizations that foster economic, environmental, and social sustainability; Developing Innovative Financial Vehicles - RSF continually researches and develops ways to meet the needs of its clients; and, Building a Community Dedicated to Sustainability - RSF creates a space where ideas are shared and collaborations form to strengthen social finance. It also inlcudes Researching the Role of Money in Society - RSF engages in research on the role of money in society to develop the capacity of individuals and organizations to explore the social implications of financial practices.

HASH(0x9760b0c0) out of 5 stars Spiritual values and money are not incompatible 7 Jan. 2010
By Deb Hansen, interfaith chaplain and life coach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is perfect for those of us who want to spend, invest, and give in ways that will build a more compassionate, creative, and sustainable reality.

The book begins with a careful definition of the three types of transactions and their essential function. The author traces the evolution of human consciousness over time. He, then, he uses his involvement with RSF, the Rudolf Steiner Foundation, as an experiment with a new paradigm of lending. The book ends with some practical exercises to encourage mindfulness around money. The chapters are bite-sized, and I found this helpful. The thinking is so new that it invites reflection along the way. Spiritual values and money are not just compatible -- they must be integrated if we truly wish to bring positive change to our world. This quote from the book summarizes some of the key messages:

"Buying/selling draws human beings into the material world and stimulates the whole world to produce what people desire. Lending/borrowing draws human beings into connection with one another, enabling people to accomplish their intentions. It makes the world into a community of striving human beings. Giving/receiving entices the spirit into material existence and can elevate human beings to greater development, wisdom, and love in shaping the future. Based on my observations and experiences, I have concluded that these three transactions are rooted in the architecture of the universe. They contain all the ingredients we need to become healing forces in the life of society. These three transactions are all we need to transform the world, unfold healthy relationships, and reconnect with the active spirit of our time."

HASH(0x9760bf54) out of 5 stars Re-create the World of Money - Read This Book! 24 Oct. 2009
By PATRICE ONEILLMAYNARD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Read this book! If everyone did, we could build a collective consciousness that could re-build the collapsed economy from loving consciousness and attentive participation. Chapter by brief, clean, and charming chapter, the author gives the reader good pictures of the quality of money, of transactions, and of life. The book goes quickly and the images run deep. You will know much more when you are done reading than you knew at the beginning! Complex ideas are made accessible without any compromise of the purity of the concepts.
