An Evening with Koorosh Ostowari

a Stepping Stones Books and Gifts Free Event

with author Koorosh Ostowari

Date:   Friday, February 5
Time:  7 pm
Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa
2075 Occidental Road
Koorosh will discuss his new book designed to help individuals deal with their anxieties about money. The Money Anxiety Cure: A Path To Financial Wellbeing will not offer you advice on accounting, budgeting, spreadsheets, or numbers. Instead, it focuses on a deeper cure: how to create financial wellbeing by changing your attitude toward money and creating a realistic and balanced vision for your own personal prosperity. Using mindfulness, reflective journaling, and somatic tools, you’ll learn to better manage your anxiety around money—and your life.
So many of us were raised to believe that financial success and material prosperity are the most important things we can achieve in our lives. But where does that leave us when things don’t go well with our bank accounts, when we don’t achieve what we think we should have achieved when we expected to achieve it, or worse, when we make a lot of money and experience professional success only to realize we are still not happy? And when the entire world seems to be in an economic downturn, does that mean that we too are doomed to misery?
As a first generation Iranian, Koorosh Ostowari (ku-rosh ostaWAARi) saw his single mother overcome great financial and cultural obstacles to provide her family with the American Dream. Following in her footsteps, Koorosh retired early from a successful 25-year career in real estate, then successfully bridged the gap between spiritual and material worlds by becoming trained as a Spirit Rock Meditation Center Dharma Leader and certified somatic therapist.
Koorosh Ostowari's new book The Money Anxiety Cure is available at Stepping Stones Books and Gifts.
Please join us for an evening about the subject of money. No Reservations or Tickets are required.

Book Review: Creating A World That Works For All

by Sharif Abdullah

What does it really mean to hold a vision for a world that works for everyone? Sharif Abdullah thoroughly explored this in his book, Creating a World that Works for All.  He starts out laying the foundation of the understanding of our oneness and the importance of seeing and living from a new paradigm. Then he invites us to take a good look at the issues facing us. As is said, we can’t change what we refuse to admit. He lays out clear instructions on how to work with our consciousness to truly shift into an expression of oneness. This is the direction needed to take our understanding from just talking affirmatively to being the change we want to see in this world. Well done Sharif Abdullah.

Review by Rev. Ruth Barnhart, a staff minister at Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa.

Creating a World that Works for All  is available from Stepping Stones Books and Gifts.
