Welcome to

Day 4 - Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual awakening represents a significant role in synchronizing our inside with our outside.

I am honored to introduce Matt Ludmer and Jeff Carreira. Their entire life involved spirituality and, over time, established a connection between their interest for business and spiritual awakening. Listening to Matt and Jeff will lay the groundworks of how to:

  • find out what is your passion,

  • let go of perfections and expectations,

  • move towards a future we love to live,

  • discover how to live to be truly happy, and 

  • take yourself less serious and have fun while doing it.


Matt Ludmer began his career on Wall Street in Morgan Stanley’s Individual Investor Services Department in 1984, after graduating from the University of Chicago’s Booth Graduate School of Business. From there he embarked on a long career as a financial advisor at Morgan Stanley, Donaldson Lufkin and Jenrette, and Smith Barney.


During these same decades, Matt was a serious student of the teachings of Tibetan meditation master Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, as well as Kabbalah and Jewish spirituality.


On Wall Street Matt saw the pain and fragmentation that people were experiencing in their lives - success in material wealth did not always equate to success in areas like relationships and personal development. Likewise, in his decades of Jewish spiritual practice and meditation, Matt saw that many people in those communities also suffered from a lack of material wealth, know-how, and skill in navigating our world.


Matt found a roadmap in Integral Theory, the work of philosopher Ken Wilber. He applied the theory to himself, used it with friends, and realized that it could be helpful to a lot of people.


Compelled by a larger holistic vision of what wealth truly meant, in 2013 Matt created Aligned Wealth, LLC, a unique wealth management company that also helps clients bring greater balance to their lives. In 2016, fueled by Integral Theory, he opened The Aligned Center in Irvington, New York, as a place where the entire community could come to explore the four dimensions of wealth: MindBody Awareness, Work & Wealth, Heartfelt Community, and Systems Thinking.
