Praise for The Prosperous Heart:
"Cameron (The Artist's Way) has written a book addressed to our times, offering advice on how to begin to fulfill one's dreams in times of recession or austerity.”
"Many artistic and imaginative souls are troubled and often blocked by money worries. They are unsure about the future and afraid to take risks since they have no Plan B to put into action. In response to this grave situation, Cameron speaks to the darkness and the dread in creative people's hearts with an alternative: the prosperous heart which recognizes "a spiritual bottom line, not a fiscal one. Our faith, not our cash flow, is what brings to our lives comfort and ease….The book is chock-full of other down-to-earth material such as myths about money, trusting that we live in a benevolent universe and that things will turn out okay, clearing clutter away, finding community, and taking to heart the spiritual virtues and practices of forgiveness, kindness, generosity, and perseverance.”
—Spirituality & Practice
"From content to presentation, Cameron shines…How we handle our money and lifestyles, and ultimately our very sense of happiness, is based on how we handle our self-image, emotions and beliefs. Trust, kindness, community, forgiveness (including for ourselves!) generosity – and a plan to help us balance all of this - is ours to study and live, in The Prosperous Heart.”

Everything Julia Cameron writes is worth owning and absorbing - so just save your mental decision making energy, purchase this book first and then figure out later what delicious adventure she is actually going to take you on this time. Though we have never met in person, Julia has traveled all around the literal physical world with me -- in hardcopy, no less as I have to be able to "touch the page" with her writings -- and around and around my inner world with me day in and day out, making me a better writer, thinker and person. "Creating a Life of 'Enough' " is a topic precisely in sync with my current status -- and, hard to imagine though it may be, could be her most important dialogue with me yet!
