From an Inner Fortune press release:

With the current economic woes rocking our country and the global economy, and the approaching threat of global warming related catastrophes, these two themes seem more pressing now than ever before. Finding the proper balance between monetary prosperity and environmental and social responsibility may seem like an impossibility. Through a carefully constructed free two-hour workshop offered by Inner Fortune, and held at the Jones Library (43 Amity St., Amherst, MA 01002) at 7PM on March 19, participants will examine the role that these two desires play in their own lives, and work to find an ideal balance between the two.
