Lynne Twist is a co-founder of The Pachamama Alliance, and founder of The Soul of Money Institute. She has dedicated herself to alleviating poverty and hunger, and supporting social justice and environmental sustainability.

In 1995, a group of people, including John Perkins, and Bill and Lynne Twist, answered a call from the Amazon rainforest and Mother Earth herself. At the invitation of leaders of the Achuar indigenous people of Ecuador, they traveled to their Amazon home to learn more about this imminent call their hearts yearned for an answer. The Achuar shared with them the urgent threat to their lands and culture, their vision for self-determination, and a request for allies from the North who would change the dream of the modern world by shifting its culture of over-consumption to a culture that honors and sustains life.

This group committed to a partnership with the Achuar, and, upon their return to the United States, co-founded The Pachamama Alliance to carry this commitment out.

To date, Lynne is a Pachamama Alliance board member and fundraiser. She also leads journeys into the Amazon rainforest through the organizations Pachamama Journeys program.

In 2003, Lynne founded The Soul of Money Institute. The Institute is a center for exploring and sharing the best practices, theories, and attitudes that enable people to relate to money and the money culture with greater freedom, power, and effectiveness.

Lynnes book, The Soul of Money, is a wise and inspiring exploration of the connection between money and leading a fulfilling life. This compelling and fundamentally liberating book shows us that examining our attitudes toward money how we earn it, spend it, invest it, and give it awaycan offer surprising insight into our lives, our values and the essence of prosperity. Through moving stories and practical principles, Lynne demonstrates how we can replace feelings of scarcity and guilt with experiences of sufficiency and freedom.

In this book and its audio CD workshop, Unleashing the Soul of Money, Lynne shares from her own life and work a journey illuminated by remarkable encounters with the richest and poorest people on earth, from the famous (Mother Teresa and the Dalai Lama) to the anonymous but unforgettable heroes of everyday life.

Lynne has also contributed chapters to more than ten books, including:

She has also written numerous articles for RSF Quarterly, Fetzer Institute, Noetic Sciences Quarterly, and YES! Magazine, among others.
