Awarded the 2016 Nautilus Silver Medal for Personal Growth! This is the book your money-savvy best friend, therapist, and accountant would write if they could. It's the book about money for people who don't even want to think about money, until the arrival of that inevitable day when we all realize we must come to terms with this thing called money. Everyone has pain and challenges, strengths and dreams about money, and many of us mix profound shame into that relationship. In The Art of Money, Bari Tessler offers an integrative approach that creates the real possibility of money healing, using our relationship with money as a gateway to self-awareness and a training ground for compassion, confidence, and self-worth. Tessler's gentle techniques weave together emotional depth, big picture visioning, and refreshingly accessible, nitty-gritty money practices that will help anyone transform their relationship with money and, in so doing, transform their life. As Bari writes, When we dare to speak the truth about money, amazing healing begins.
