Work, Sex, Money, Dharma:
Liberation in Everyday Life

On-Demand Course

Available Now!

We can enjoy radical freeness right here, using the circumstances of our modern lives.

Work, sex, and money are the three most charged areas of everyday living; so much so that working with their potency is often overlooked, especially in the monastic traditions.

My own early practice was an ascetic one; I spent some years in Asian monasteries and Himalayan hermitages in intensive meditation, and have great respect for these traditions. When I became a husband, father and householder, I was forced to face work, sex and money, and my hang ups with them, head on.

I’ve learned that our complicated relationships to work, sex and money are the shorthand for both the challenge and the fullness of spiritual, contemporary living. By consciously investigating these areas, our desires, egos, and attachments are brightly illuminated.

Through independent, self-paced study, you’ll deepen your understanding of your mind’s conditioning. How do you push, pull, shut down, or get contracted, confused, or stuck in regards to work, sex, and money? How can you use this information for personal growth?

Throughout this course, I’ll help you to:

  • Uncover your ideas and associations about work, sex, and money formed during your upbringing
  • Recognize how your conditioning is currently playing out around work, responsibility and vocation; sex, intimacy and loving relationships; money, confidence and security 
  • Cultivate a more fluid, free, playful, and peaceful relationship to work, sex and money

I’ve been living and teaching this transformative material since 2010, to hundreds of students in London, Jerusalem, Paris, New York, San Francisco and beyond. Examining our relationships to work, sex, and money through the lens of the Dharma is a powerful vehicle for personal and collective awakening.

Module 1: WORK

In this module, we’ll explore our associations, views, and conditioning in regards to work.

Work, at its best, is our ability to express our intelligence, life force, and understanding in service of the world.

Module 2: SEX

In this module, we’ll examine our hang ups with sex, eroticism, and intimacy.

Our relationships — and our overall relationship with life — can be suffused with love and intimacy, pleasure and delight.

Module 3: MONEY

In this module, we’ll dig into our personal challenges in regards to making, keeping, and spending money.

We can develop healthier, freer relationships with the concepts of wealth and security.

Module 4: DHARMA

In this module, we’ll practice maintaining presence in areas of life where we either become reactive, or have disconnects.

We’ll bring qualities of awakeness, freeness, confidence, engagement, and love into our relationships with work, sex, and money.
