Also, this may be a personal prejudice of mine, but I'm not sure how *you* are supposed to grow by giving away money. If it is *your* growth he is promoting, then he ought to insist on you giving time and emotional energy (not that he ought to do that, but at least it would be more consistent with therapeutic aims, if that makes sense?). I doubt many people become more empathetic by giving away money. I have had truly transformative volunteer experiences, but I doubt they'd have been the same if I just made myself poorer financially.
