Money is much more than a piece of paper, a coin, plastic card or a number in an account. It is also a psychological complex as powerful and multifaceted as any other in psychology. Aaron Kipnis calls it The Midas Complex, and in this course he explores how money drives us crazy and what we can do about it.

This course is about the deep psychology of Money. It considers all the various ways in which Money affects us, both individually and as an entire culture.
The goal of the course is to become more aware of the ways in which Money can – often unconsciously – impact the major decisions and choices we make in life. What we can bring into consciousness has the potential to give us greater freedom and fulfillment in how we shape our lives.
This course is ideal if
- You are interested in having a conscious relationship with Money
- You want to learn more about how and why one’s personal sense of worth and value is usually attached to financial status.
- You want to understand why the Money complex has such a major impact on relationships.
- You are interested in liberating yourself from your own complexes related to Money.
Class 1. The Evolution of Money
What exactly is Money? Where did it come from? Why do we need it? This class unpacks the phenomena of Money in all its myriad forms, as vast and complex as the Gods and Goddesses of cultures throughout time and place. We capitalize the word, because in many ways, Money has actually taken on the form of a God in many cultures today.
Class 2. The Deep Psychology of Money
Money is a powerful maker of human identity and culture. This class examines Money’s impact on Psyche. How Money can affect our personal sense of worth, our relationships, our choices in life, work, education, family dynamics, mental, spiritual and physical health, intimate partnerships and more.
Class 3. The Psychopathologies of Money
Money drives us crazy. How so? This class considers the many ways in which individuals, families, communities and nations suffer due to their, often unconscious, relationship to money. The specific pathologies that can be directly attributed to crazy-making engagements with Money are detailed. And, opening toward Class 4, begins to examine ways in which we can liberate ourselves from Money as a force of possession in our psyches.
Class 4. Beyond Money
What might it be like to live with greater freedom and insight into Money’s influence on our lives? Depth psychology says: we become possessed by what we fail to commune with. We will consider what it means to have a conscious relationship to Money, to better assure that it stays in its proper place in our lives (as a tool) and does not possess and take us over (as a drug).
By the end of this course, you will
- Understand how money influences your self-esteem, sense of worth and sense of value.
- Have a broad overview of the psychological history of Money and why it is so strongly entrenched in our culture.
- Have a better understanding of the perils of an active Money complex.
- Be able to recognize your own Money complex triggers and start working towards a more conscious relationship with Money.
