By Dr. Lisa Avila Everyone moves through the world meeting needs, healthy or not. It is what we all do as human beings, using our greatest tools to influence the people around us to engage with us in a way that fills our needs. This subtle manipulation is very human, and we do it mostly unaware. But what happens when we become aware of the currency we move through the world with?

Sweat equity is an amazing alternative to using cash as a way of getting things done

Sweat Equity – a good alternative to spending cash

Time banks: Currency the way it was meant to be

By Amanda Hollenbeck The act of time banking has become a popular practice across the country, but it is not a brand-new convention. According to the official time bank website, in the 1980’s, Edgar Cahn coined the concept of Time Banking as  exchanging time and effort in lieu of physical cash for services. Cahn’s idea of time banking was birthed after Ronald Reagan proposed cuts to social programs. Cahn thought that without these programs and lack of social funding, money would have extreme power, and communities might fall apart. By using time banking, communities have the ability to build and connect outside of the of the power and, sometimes corruption, of physical money.
