Announcing my latest book on April 1st…
The Contemplative Capitalist: Spiritual Hacks for Meditation and Making Money.
It’s time to finally unearth the true riches from my years of contemplative study and practice.
You may have thought that the “true riches” of contemplative prayer are related to experiencing the peace of God, but that’s just the beginning of a path to peace and prosperity that goes far beyond anything that Jesus ever talked about, considered, imagined possible, or inspired his disciples to write about.
In fact, Jesus never said anything about the real links between contemplative prayer and financial prosperity…
The REAL SECRET of financial prosperity is found by applying contemplation’s ancient, time-tested practices to American ingenuity.
The contemplative tradition of the Christian faith is an untapped gold mine of capitalist potential that we shouldn’t be ashamed of using in order to meet our financial needs. In The Contemplative Capitalist you’ll learn how to:
- End each day with a Budget Examen (TM): “When was my budget most present with me today?”
- Use a sacred word to ignore your children’s pleas for budget-busting toys.
- Walk out of debt labyrinths in contemplative silence.
- Light a Contemplative Capitalist Candle (TM) for each credit card debt payment.
- Use the power of contemplative silence to get your way in meetings and price negotiations.
- Endure bull markets by passing through a dark night of the investor’s soul.
- Celebrate paid off debt with a pleasant “Ommm” (Contemplatives never scream).
These are proven strategies that the desert fathers and mothers developed in part but foolishly never monetized while sweating alone in their caves weaving baskets (and think of the time they could have had for prayer if they had outsourced those baskets!). Don’t bury the wisdom of the contemplative tradition in the ground. Put it to work for you, and you will see an increase in financial prosperity for you and your family.
How to Purchase “The Contemplative Capitalist”

Do you hear that sound? Of course you don’t, you’re not an expert contemplative like me.
- You can’t hear your money practically draining out of your bank account.
- You can’t fully integrate all of your investments because you aren’t spirituality integrated.
- You haven’t learned how to use the power of silence to crush your competition at work.
This rock bottom price of 3 installments of $7.99 each is going to give you so much value and save you so much money, that you’ll stop talking, just like a true hermit, because you’ll be thinking of all the ways to invest and increase your money. You may even need to build bigger storehouses to hold everything you can buy. In fact, get working on those storehouses tonight.
Your life is about to change. You have no idea what you’re in for…
[Wait, was this an April Fool’s Day joke?]
Yes. I do write books about contemplative prayer, but not about making money from contemplative prayer. At least, not yet…
Each year I try to write some kind of parody of myself and the Christian subculture. I aim to be as over the top as possible. This year I thought of all of those business books I used to shelve in Borders (legit!) that praised Jesus as a great CEO/manager/stock broker/general/fax machine repairman… you get the picture. Going corporate with contemplation seemed like the ticket, even if parodying evangelical Christianity is getting harder with each passing year because many of the parodies I considered were too close to the truth.
While I hope that the jokes aren’t subtle, I also hope that this parody can help us consider the far more subtle temptations to twist Christian spirituality, and many other aspects of the faith, into tools that serve our own interests over the call to sacrificially love God and neighbors.
