Enjoy this Peace Talk Radio podcast where host Suzanne Kryder talks with Lynne Twist, author of “The Soul of Money: Transforming Your Relationship With Money and Life” and financial advisor and author Brent Kessel who wrote “It’s Not About The Money: Unlock your Money Type to Achieve Spiritual and Financial Abundance.”
So much conflict comes up in our lives over money. Are there ways of thinking about money that might bring us more peace of mind? Can our philanthropy really make a difference for ourselves and our society?

Understand Your Relationship with Money
In the second part of our program, we talk with Brent Kessel, one of the top 250 financial advisors in the U.S. according to Worth Magazine. If you go to his website www.BrentKessel.com, you can take a quiz to determine your money type. There are eight types. Most people are mixtures of each but once Brent finds out which types you are, he can help you understand your relationship with money and address any conflict you might have over it. Kessel has also studied meditation with many of the worlds’ most revered teachers.
