Our Mission

To provide a place to explore heartfelt community,
lifelong learning, mind-body awareness,
and financial abundance under one roof.

Our Story

The Aligned Center started when Matt Ludmer, a former Director at Morgan Stanley, and founder of Aligned Wealth Management, left Wall Street to bring to fruition an idea of great depth and purpose.

After thirty years at Morgan Stanley, Matt felt that the concepts of wealth and growth had been too distinctly and too narrowly defined. So he left to create a new vision—Aligned Wealth—that would help clients achieve more balanced and fulfilling lifestyles.

His entrepreneurial pursuit did not stop there. As a longtime student of various traditions and growth paths, Matt had always felt that modern life was overly fragmented, and that a more integrated approach to living was deeply needed.

Realizing that this was symptomatic of our tendency as a society to categorically divide experiences like spirituality and finance, business and pleasure, intellect and body, he was inspired to create a new type of space where people could come to align these multiple dimensions of our lives.

He therefore founded The Aligned Center, based on principles drawn from many sources, including the Integral Theory of Ken Wilber, the Tibetan Buddhist insights of Chögyam Trungpa, the Jewish Kabbalah teachings of Reb Zalman and others, and the Financial Life Planning principles of George Kinder.

The Aligned Center serves as a place where people can come to experience and explore four dimensions of wealth – heartfelt community, lifelong learning, mind-body awareness, and financial well-being–all under one roof.

Our Philosophy

The Aligned Center was inspired by the well-researched principles of Integral Theory, which integrates models of cognitive, psychological, and spiritual growth to create a lens for understanding our own development, both as individuals and as a society.

Our philosophy draws from Integral Theory’s focus on the concept of showing up, which refers to the idea of being fully present in these four dimensions of our lives:

cultivating our personal internal understanding


Enhancing our material growth

Deepening our connection to community


Engaging in continuous, meaningful learning


Everything about The Aligned Center, from the mindful family offices to the membership-based coworking space, to the diverse range of community classes, talks, workshops, and meditations, has been intentionally designed to inspire growth in all dimensions.
