The Art of Money

Join us starting June 10th for an 8-week discussion of The Art of Money: A Life-Changing Guide to Financial Happiness. We'll review sections of the book and share perspectives. So grab your glass of wine or cup of tea (no seriously, we'll ask what you're sipping on) and join us!  Additional details (including how to read along if you can't join the live discussion and how to order your copy of the book), below.  

About The Book

Self-described ‘mamapreneur’ and founder of the Art of Money school, provides a new way of looking at money from the perspective of the emotions that it creates and how those emotions limit your ability to create financial growth and security
— Geoffrey James, Contributing Editor for Inc.com

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.".
