Our consumer crazy culture shouts at us daily that we are not complete until we get the latest and greatest new thing that will surely make our lives easier and more fulfilling. We grow attached to ideas and thoughts about what we want or expect out of life. Then it seems we spend a lot of our time grasping at things that we hope will fulfill us. Just what is a better life and how might we discern what we need to really experience an abundant life? Join us as we explore how we might find abundance without the disappointment of attachment.
