Culture of Empathy Builder:  Charles Eisenstein

Charles Eisenstein, David Hazen & Edwin Rutsch: How to Build a Culture of Empathy with Sacred Economics

Charles Eisenstein is a teacher, speaker, and writer focusing on themes of civilization, consciousness, money, and human cultural evolution. He is author of: Sacred Economics: Money, Gift, and Society in the Age of Transition. Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth.

David Hazen (Love Always Wins: Hope for Healing the Epidemic of Violence) and Edwin Rutsch, interview Charles about how to transform society and build a culture of empathy. How to move from a culture of separateness, alienation, greed and selfishness to empathy, gift, connection and love.
