Saturday April 21 8:00 p.m.–9:30 p.m. All Omega NYC participants are welcome. Geneen Roth Food, Money & What's Enough An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything. Continuing education credits are available.
New York Times best-selling author Geneen Roth galvanized millions of readers with Women Food and God, a book that draws on her 30 years of teaching about the charged relationship between food and our inner lives. Now she turns her attention to another great secret in American culture: the conflicted relationship that many people have with money.
In this inspiring keynote talk, Roth shares the lessons she learned through the loss of her entire life-savings in the Bernie Madoff scandal. During that crisis, she took a hard look at her own financial habits and discovered direct parallels between her relationships with food and money. With humor and wisdom, she helps us examine belief systems and behaviors around food and money, and guides us to explore the deeper side of the question, "What is enough?"
