"We can have a new economic era now—where sustainable values and the genius of human consciousness out perform fear and greed. Conscious Money imagines it, presents the evidence for it, and creates a blueprint for achieving it. Nothing could be a more significant contribution to our personal and global healing.”
—Marianne Williamson, author of Return to Love
“Conscious Money does for individuals what Conscious Capitalism did for corporations: it articulates a simple, brilliant framework for achieving sustainable financial results, while espousing the highest ideals. Read it, get inspired, and prosper.”
—John Mackey, co-CEO and co-founder of Whole Foods Market
"Affirmations, reflections, resources, exercises, and sound financial information and forecasting make this an engaging and practical read on the leading edge of sustainable wealth consciousness." (Publishers Weekly)
“Anything Patricia Aburdene writes is of immediate interest to me. In Conscious Money, she shows us why we should reject conventional economic wisdom (greed is good) and grow prosperity by recognizing values like trust and integrity as our greatest financial assets. Passionate and persuasive; read it to make a difference, find fulfillment, and grow ‘conscious’ wealth.”
—Stephen M. R. Covey, bestselling author of The Speed of Trust and Smart Trust
“Conscious Money translates the profitable business model of Conscious Capitalism into a blueprint for personal finance. Read it, change the way you see, and engage with the world of business, and personally prosper by honoring your values.”
—Kip Tindell, chairman and CEO of The Container Store
“Fundamentally, our inner relationship with our money—how we feel about our prosperity and the paths we’ve chosen to reach it—is one of the truest definitions of fulfillment and security. Patricia Aburdene’s insightful, delightful work carefully and accessibly explores these truths and provides pioneering counsel on reaching our goals. Reading her book is a deeply satisfying and enriching experience.
—Jack Canfield, author of The Success Principles, The Golden Motorcycle Gang and cocreator of The Chicken Soup for the Soul series
“This profound and eminently practical book is pure genius when it comes to money and consciousness. It is not only a superb guide to the release of our money sickness but gives us transformative skills that lead us towards clarity and abundance while enlightening our mind and spirit.”
—Jean Houston, PhD, author of A Passion for the Possible
“Perfect timing. In an era when most of us question ‘economics as usual,’ Conscious Money charts a personalized strategy for embracing human values as the cornerstone of sustainable finance. This is a rare and winning blend of inspiration, information, and wisdom. Bravo Patricia Aburdene.”
—Amy Domini, founder and CEO of Domini Social Investments

Top Customer Reviews
Ms. Aburdene's intention is not just to inform, but also to transform, so "Conscious Money" is full of frank talk about...
* Money and its positive uses and negative misuses;
* The psychology we all have around money, including the shadow self, and how this affects our economic decisions;
* Why being in alignment with your consciousness results in better money choices;
* How to recognize a business operating with consciousness;
* Numerous effective exercises that cut through a lot of the muddled thinking and behaviors that many of us have around money;
* The importance of creativity, intuition, and meditation to conscious money decisions;
* And, additional exercises that would on their own make for a potent spiritual practice
"Conscious Money" is incredibly well researched and provides readers with countless examples of people and enterprises doing the right thing. As I said above the book is grounded in unabashed honesty that liberates the reader's mind. For example, many folks in the consciousness community decry business layoffs, yet Patricia Aburdene celebrates businesses that have had to lay off people or cut back benefits for people in order for future prosperity to unfold. However, she emphasizes that these firms have made these difficult decisions consciously and humanely. This view is often anathema, but I thought it was a breath of fresh air.
Last, because the author describes her own money shortcomings and her eventual triumphs it demonstrates by example the power of what she is sharing. Yea!
Highly recommended for those looking to right their economic ship or to bring greater consciousness to their economic decisions.
Conscious Money also reaches beyond the practical to give us a glimpse of what the future may look like as the Information Age draws to an end. In the tradition of the Megatrends books, Patricia Aburdene methodically collects and weaves together the first threads of what she calls the Economy of Consciousness, where individuals are more empowered in their choices about consumption, personal finances, work, and community involvement. It will give you the courage and the tools to make a difference in your every day decisions.
