Coming Events

Please join me for an extraordinary online event—10 powerful days designed to help you set your course for 2022.

My colleagues at Heart Mind Institute and Wisdom for Life have teamed up to bring you the 2022 Best Year of Your Life Summit on January 12-21.

Sign up now for FREE.

They’ve gathered more than 45 presenters to guide you, including renowned authors, scientists, habit change specialists, mindset and success coaches, and experts in relationships, health & wellness and more.

I’m thrilled to be one of the Summit speakers, along with Marianne Williamson, Dr. Michael Beckwith, Sharon Salzberg, Dr. Dan Siegel, Kelly McGonigal, Thomas Hübl, Kristen Neff, Jack Kornfield & Trudy Goodman, Richard Davidson, Kute Blackson, Amishi Jha, Ruth King, Harville Hendrix & Helen Hunt, David Richo, Vicki Robin, Richard Schwartz, Max Strom and many more…

See the full lineup of presenters here.

I agreed to speak at this Summit – and I do very few now – because I have an unusual sense of expectancy.

The pressures bearing down on us can temper rather than collapse our souls. I see this happening all around me – and within me.

My work, over decades, has covered a range of transformational topics: conscious money, local food, true freedom, deep dialogue. In this Best Life Summit, I weave these together and I’m very excited to share this with you.

Hollyhock Money Retreat 9/20-25

Join Vicki Robin at the beautiful Hollyhock Retreat Center to look at your individual – and our collective – relationship with money, from spirituality to spreadsheets, from practices to potential for change. Emerge clear, effective, light-hearted and honest about money, and with tools to set a firm financial foundation for whatever you want to do with your life. 

September 20 – 25, 2019

Put money in service to your values rather than your life in service to money! Transform your relationship with money through this radical, clear-eyed, compassionate, and systematic approach; redefining both your beliefs and behaviours.

Wake up to what money is, does and how it functions in your life. Learn to:

  • Save more, spend less
  • Reorder material priorities and live well for less
  • Resolve inner conflicts between values and lifestyle
  • Save the planet while saving money

This is a rare opportunity to dig into the methods presented in the widely celebrated, bestselling book Your Money or Your Life: Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial Independence, co-authored by Vicki Robin and Joe Dominguez.

Portland, Oregon March 5, 2019

Financial Independence for All
6-7:30 PM
5441 Southeast Belmont Street, Portland, Oregon 97215

What if we reimagined financial freedom from a pathway to personal empowerment to a framework for more justice and civics in our country? Join us March 5 for an evening with Vicki Robin, coauthor of the NYTimes bestseller, Your Money or Your Life and godmother to the FIRE (financial independence retire early) movement. Vicki sees the FIRE movement as full of potential to do some real good in the world with the time they liberate from paid employment.

Vicki will tell us about FIforALL, her framework to guarantee financial security for all Americans, regardless of their station. She will invite us to imagine what our country would be like if everyone had their baseline material needs met. Join us for a fun and inspiring evening with one of America’s finest and most original minds.

Tickets here!

Your Money or Your Life Launch at Whidbey Institute April 9, 7-8:30 PM 6449 Old Pietila Road, Clinton, WA 98236

These are the “interesting times” of the oft-quoted Chinese curse. Many are fearful of what the future holds.

  • How do we relate to money in such a season of tectonic change?
  • How do we stay with the changes, whatever our age, when the grounding points of the old American Dream are un-moored?
  • What prospects do our young people have in this gig and sharing economy when jobs are outsourced to low wage countries and now robots?

If there was ever a time to examine our relationship with money and become more resilient, it’s now. With these complex challenges in mind, Vicki Robin, author of the classic bestseller, Your Money or Your Life, decided to do a 25th anniversary makeover and wanted to offer her community a look between the covers the week of its official release. Some of the topics she will cover are:

  • The classic 9-step program for transforming your relationship with money
  • The rise of the FIRE (financial independence retire early) subculture
  • What FIers (followers of the financial independence path) are investing in now
  • Financial Interdependence​ – ​what is ​security in a connected world
  • #FIforALL – an aspiration and a set of policies to transition out of the old American Dream and into the new landscape of work, purpose, identity, connections and enoughness.

There will be ample time for questions and discussion, often the richest part of an evening. Books will be for sale at the event, and Vicki will be signing them.
