Program Description

“If you are not content today, there is nothing you can buy tomorrow to change that.” – Joshua Becker

True happiness is not found in consumption. But how do you really learn how to own less and live more?

Join best-selling author Joshua Becker (The More of Less) for this powerful weekend on how to own less and create a more fulfilling life. Stop chasing material possessions, and connect to your desire for deep meaning that has little to do with material acquisition.

In this life-shifting workshop, you’ll:

  • Reevaluate your definition of significance
  • Discover how owning less frees you to accomplish your highest goals
  • Create a road map for a clutter-free home and life
  • Explore how you can apply minimalist principles in every endeavor
  • Overcome stress, busyness, and financial discontent.

Minimalism is a return to intentionality—find out how owning less allows you to refocus your pursuits and align your actions with your deepest values.

Own less. Live more. Discover the life you’ve always wanted.
