Maggie Kulyk uses her many years of experience in financial services and her background in religious studies to help people explore their relationship with money and how it intersects with their emotional and spiritual lives. After working for six years in the business world, Maggie pursued her interest in religion at Emory University. She received an MDiv from Candler School of Theology at Emory in 1996, then finished ABD from the Graduate School of Religion at Emory. Since 2002, she's worked closely with individuals and families helping them put their money in the service of their dreams and values. In 2013 she became a Certified Money Coach through the Money Coaching Institute. Maggie is interested in the deeper story of money in human culture and how it operates symbolically in our lives. She is part of a growing conversation about what it means to give and receive, and she is exploring ideas about how the sharing of our personal and collective resources can lead to a transformed world.
Hugh M. Grant majored in economics as an undergraduate at Davidson College, and his studies in that area awakened the desire to experience a different culture. After two years of teaching business education and economics at a secondary school in Kenya, he returned to the US, working in the field of international human rights before doing masters degrees in theology at Emory University's Candler School of Theology and social work at the University of Georgia. For ten years he practiced as a psychotherapist and clinical social worker. In 2008, after receiving a Master of Divinity from the General Theological Seminary, he was ordained as an Episcopal priest and served at a parish in New York City for five years. He now leads retreats, guiding people in deepening their spiritual lives in the context of nature. Hugh has an abiding commitment to the concept of stewardship—stewardship of personal financial resources, as well as stewardship of the earth, and of the individual’s spirit and psyche. He enjoys helping others develop transformative insights into their relationship with money, as well as curiosity about how this relates to the spiritual and psychological dimensions of being and connectedness.
