Drawing on her decades of experience as an expert on the creative process working with artists, Cameron shines a clear light on the path to forging a healthy relationship with money together with a rich creative life. With "The Prosperous Heart" you will: learn which parts of your life are truly valuable; teach yourself practical daily tools and exercises for developing a satisfying and secure present and future; remove emotional issues that create anxiety about finances; learn why creativity is at the centre of all outward and inward success; and, break down the blocks you have to combining spiritual wholeness with financial success.

This book by Julia Cameron following in format and process the work that has changed lives and the creativity therein for folks around the world for nearly twenty years.

Julia's exercises to guide the reader to greater understanding of their prosperity and to "grow" their wealth are worth the time and exploration.
A great group process, shared learning journey as well as an individual experience.

Publishers Weekly, 2011-11-14 Author and teacher of creativity for 35 years, Cameron (The Artist's Way) has realized that the common lament of being a "starving artist" is rooted in the perception that prosperity equates with a financial bottom line. Rather, she says, prosperity is a spiritual bottom line that affects all areas of life. "The opposite of prosperity is not poverty. It is anxiety. When we are possessed of a prosperous heart, we do not act rashly out of anxiety... we respond to life rather than merely react to it. Doing so, we find our lives are filled with choices." Decades of working with students inspired Cameron to dismantle the negativity contemporary culture encourages and design a practical 12-week program that requires only an authentic willingness to explore personal relationships with money and to cultivate the qualities that engender a prosperous heart and fulfilling life. Inspiring stories of how money affects people's lives accompany tools, exercises, and strategies for discovering the true meaning of prosperity and abundance in this uplifting and beneficial guide.
