Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Aburdene (co-author, Megatrends 2000) offers enriching discourse about how people can manage their money life, personally and in society, to better reflect their spiritual values. She begins by making a strong case for cultivating personal higher consciousness and values around money. She describes this inner work as developing a "spiritual competency" that will enhance one's ability to attract abundance, which in turn defines how one uses a conscious-money outlook within the larger world. The more compelling and comprehensive element of the book follows, providing a wealth of information on companies practicing conscious business. Aburdene examines businesses such as Whole Foods, Costco, and REI to illuminate the qualities of "conscious capitalism"—how conscious money is used in the world of business. She provides a wealth of strategies and guidelines for practicing mindful spending and conscious investing, and for getting to know if a company is one you would feel good doing business with—whether as a shopper, employee, supplier, or investor. 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.

From the Publisher
“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
