Polly Campbell

 Polly Campbell-Author of Imperfect Spirituality: Extraordinary Enlightenment for Ordinary People

Buddha probably never pulled a raisin out of a toddler’s nose on his path toward enlightenment, but stuck raisins and other real-life moments have provided writer Polly Campbell plenty of opportunities for spiritual growth and self-improvement. Campbell’s articles on personal development topics and spiritual practices appear regularly in national publications and blogs and she is also a professional speaker who inspires and energizes audiences with a blend of wit and wisdom.

She admits to practicing many of the things she writes and speaks about in her own quest to find more peace, happiness and sometimes just socks that match. The spiritual practices and personal development strategies she practices have also helped her cope with chronic illness – juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and a melanoma cancer scare.

Despite these and the other every-day challenges, Campbell has consistently developed her own spiritual practice by adapting the most powerful principles to fit into her unpredictable lifestyle. Her down-to-earth, and imperfect yet practical, approach has helped others uncover their own greatest potential and live close to spirit.

Campbell is also a multi-tasking wife and mother, an avid player of Candyland, a forever fan of University of Oregon Duck football and a reader of personal development and spirituality books from her home in Oregon.

Tasch is widely regarded as a pioneer of the concepts of patient capital, mission-related investing and community development venture capital.

Tasch is now working on the sequel to his first book, revisiting the fundamental principles of Slow Money, based on the experience of the last four years since launching the organization and movement.
