An integrative 3-step approach to financial literacy that brings mindfulness, body-based awareness, and radical self-love to one of our most troublesome relationships--the one with our money

"Bari Tessler adds an exciting, important voice to the money once spiritual and practical, this is the education we've been waiting for." Lynne Twist, Author of The Soul of Money

For many of us, the most challenging and upsetting relationship in our lives is with our finances, bringing feelings of shame or powerlessness. But Bari Tessler's unique 3-phase program creates the real possibility of "money healing" as a gateway to self-awareness and a training ground for compassion, confidence, and self-worth.

Tessler's gentle, somatic techniques weave together emotional depth, big picture visioning, and refreshingly accessible, nitty-gritty money practices. She breaks it down into 3 phases of Deep Money Work:

Money Healing Healing money shame, money rituals, the body check-in, and letting go

Money Practices Money as a self-care practice, values-based bookkeeping, and the spiritual side of a money practice

Money Maps The 3-Tier Money Map designed to evolve with you over time, making good money decisions, and your money legacy

Guiding readers through their own step-by-step journey, The Art of Money will help anyone transform their relationship with money and, in so doing, transform their life.
