Philiana is an initiative that directly fosters a more generous relationship to, and handling of, money within the context of the new economy. Working with the idea that money represents a bridge that can connect, rather than separate, human beings, Philiana has developed methods and trainings thru which participants directly experience the liberation and joy of connection that gift money offers.
Predicated on a theory of change that focuses on individual transformation as the foundation for community and, ultimately, societal development, Philiana works with individuals in small groups in an experiential basis to unlock patterns and traditional assumptions of money and personal needs. The trainings and seminars demonstrate how money, even in small amounts, can be a means to understand, engage with, and connect to others. Indeed, through the medium of money, the powerful experience of human interest and nearness is fostered. This experience can be a catalyst for a remarkable transformation in how we relate to our money, and, more importantly, ourselves and others.
