Details: Product Description Learn everything you need to know about money management with this approachable guide to tackling financial fears and challenges with confidence, mindfulness, and self-compassion. Is one of the most challenging relationships in your life the one you have with your money? Do you talk about everything, except finances? Do you make shopping decisions based on your emotions, rather than your budget or big-picture goals? Bari Tessler is here to help!
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.”

An Elephant Worth Friending You believe a good life is a conscious one. You reflect deeply, question the status quo, and infuse your decisions with good intentions. You might not have it all figured out, but you’re pretty sure the meaning of life has something to do with being as loving, compassionate, and mindful as possible, in big choices and teensy ways, every day: from smiling at passersby to being a conscious parent to finding a way to make a big, positive impact on the world with your one beautiful life. Normally, you’ll look the toughest taboo in the eye. (Heck: you’ll pour it a glass of wine and share a few laughs.) From body image to spirituality, diet to a meaningful career, you’ve gotten brave, gotten honest, and worked to create healthier, more intimate and mindful relationships with yourself, with others, and with the different aspects of your life. But there’s one nagging exception. An area of your life that you’d rather not think about, let alone talk about. One last taboo that can still turn your palms sweaty and give you that icky, pit-in-the-stomach feeling. It’s the elephant in the room. MONEY. Money was the elephant in the room during that
