“THE END OF THE AGE OF BLING”
Patrick Parham, Spiritual Consultant & Financial Advisor
“A world that once indulged American profligacy is no longer willing to do so.”
-Andrew J. Bacevich, The Limits of Power: The End of American Exceptionalism
The current financial and economic crisis is humbling the American Empire and changing the deeply unconscious acquisitiveness of the American Dream. Both as individuals and a nation, we are being forced to give up our illusory and misleading version of the American past and our dream of managing history. It is different this time: “A world that once indulged American profligacy is no longer willing to do so.”
New limits will be placed upon us, and we must awaken to this new reality and alter our basic assumption that more is always better. But with these losses will also come gifts, if we know where to look. Mr.Parham will help us explore some of the ways each of us might act to ensure our basic economic wellbeing by separating what is essential from what is merely “bling”—and begin to reawaken to lives based primarily on relationship, spirituality, and self-awareness rather than the acquisition of money and power.
Patrick Parham, M.A., spent 25 years in global trade, headquartered in New York while also living in Japan, Switzerland,and Jamaica. He currently teaches at St. Thomas University and is a trained Spiritual Director. Patrick also serves as treasurer of the Center for Jungian Studies of South Florida
