Westport woman wants to improve her relationship with money

April is Financial Literacy Month and according to Westport resident Kerry Cudmore, it’s a good time to reflect on your relationship with money. Cudmore offers free financial literacy courses on its website,

Classes are delivered over Zoom, once a week for five weeks, and offer new ways of looking at money. Cudmore has been teaching financial literacy since 2008. In 2018, Spiritual Finance was granted nonprofit status.

Program goals include reorganizing your relationship to prosperity, abundance, and success, removing emotional clutter from limiting financial beliefs, becoming comfortable in the “life conversation” ‘money’ and creating a healthy and nurturing relationship with money and finance.

The next series of classes begins Monday, May 23 and runs from 10 a.m. to noon. Class sizes are limited and pre-registration is required, but again classes are free.

During a visit this week to town square sunday, Cudmore admitted that she is not a financial adviser; in fact, her own start with money was what she described as a “nightmare”.

“It was total chaos,” she said. “I had stacks of unopened bills, I had angry creditors calling me every day. I needed to change my relationship with money.”

Out of desperation and need, Cudmore said she figured out how to do it on her own and now she and other “teachers” are passing on the lessons they learned.
