The Art of Money

Dear you,

I know how brave you are. Normally, you’ll look the toughest taboo in the eye.

Heck, you’ll pour it a glass of Pinot Noir and share a few laughs.

Whether it’s sex, spirituality, or the Great Gluten debate, you reflect deeply. You might not be perfect, but you believe a good life is a conscious one — and do your best to live your values and good intentions.

But there’s one exception. And it’s haunting you.



Money’s the one area of your life that feels … off. Shameful. Misaligned, maybe.

Gulp. Sweaty palms. Scary, icky pit-in-stomach feeling.

Money is the elephant in the room. But the truth is: he isn’t going anywhere.

Isn’t it time you looked him in the eye, poured him a cuppa chamomile, and had a heart-to-heart?

He doesn’t bite. (Pinkie promise.) When you give him a chance, you’ll see: he can be a powerful, loyal friend.

But most of us have no idea how to do this. We simply weren’t taught how to work with money, from childhood on up. And we certainly weren’t taught how to deal with our emotions about it!

Money is the final frontier of a conscious lifestyle for many, many people.

That’s why I do what I do.

headshot-1-400wHi, I’m Bari Tessler Linden, Financial Therapist, Mentor Coach, and author.
Over the last 15 years I’ve guided thousands of people into new, more loving, and refreshingly honest relationships with money.

Four years ago, we shared something completely new with the world: a one-year money school called The Art of Money. It’s the culmination of over two decades of my money, emotional, and body-centered work — and the most effective container for my teachings, ever.

The results have been nothing short of incredible. Each year, the movement gets bigger: in 2016, we welcomed over 400 members from 17 countries… Mamas, papas, students, CEO’s, creative entrepreneurs, healers, movers, and shakers

… all coming together in the global conscious money movement.

Soon, we will welcome a new group of Money to our fifth year: The Art of Money 2017. It’s going to be our very best year, yet: even more Teaching Assistants, new, eclectic and expert Guest Teachers, and the most refined methodology yet for sustainable financial transformation.

The Art of Money is …

… a year-long journey of deep + practical transformation
… a kindred, global community
… my entire methodology, library, and live monthly group coaching calls
… a complete tapestry weaving together personal, couple, and entrepreneurial money teachings
… all all at affordable price.

I want to make this life-changing work as accessible as possible. That’s why I’ve kept the price low. $88 per month for solo journeyers — or —  $108 per month for couples, for 12 months. With a pay-in-full discount.
We only begin this journey once a year, so I can pour so much love into it. And I would be honored to welcome you in 2017.

I found myself in an incredibly supportive, gentle community that encouraged me to explore, share from my heart and release a lot of old shame. I’m not afraid anymore. Results like earning more, saving more and paying off debt were great. Just as important was building my capacity to understand my needs at any given moment, and to see how often it was rest, self-care, time in nature, creative expression and connection with others, all independent of money. I highly recommend AOM, especially to artists, sensitive and creative people and entrepreneurs because of its right-brain approach. Thank you Bari and Forest for creating such a potent container to explore and transform around money.

I’m not really sure I will ever truly find the right words to express my deep gratitude for having found Bari’s work and for the year I have spent as part of the AOM community. This program has RADICALLY shifted my relationship with money and even how I see myself. I broke through some barriers that had held me back for a long time. I even launched out and started my own business which I NEVER would have been able to do if I had not changed how I related to money. This program was a gift from the Divine at a time when I needed it the most. If you are considering doing this work, I can’t say strongly enough how much you should do it. Money and I are on such better terms and I owe it to this program. You will not be sorry and you will be the better for having invested the time. It has been an absolute joy to have spent this last year with her and her team. I loved this program and I know you will too!

As a man with a traditional finance background, I was extremely skeptical of this seemingly feminine and feelings oriented course because I felt like I knew exactly what needed to be done for our financial health. But through the course, Bari won me over and my perspective has completely changed.

If you are a married couple with young children like we are, and you are wondering if you should do this, I would strongly suggest it. I have been the money person in our relationship, and I always wanted my wife to care as much about saving money as much as I do. But I couldn’t get her to see my side of things. She is very comfortable spending, very different than me.

So it wasn’t a surprise to me that she proposed we enroll in this course. My instant reaction was that we should keep our money in our account instead of enrolling. I tried to convince her that I could teach her everything she needs to know about budgeting, money, investing etc. It turns out, Bari was a better teacher for her than I am. She needed a really kind, gentle approach, and a community of support to engage in money talk.

Bari taught us techniques for being kind to ourselves and each other around a topic that brings up so much tension and stress. During the course, we paid off all debt completely and are both focused on building our savings. My wife does it without me nagging her now. Her inner money manager has been awakened. Our finances are better than ever before, and we are both involved now. I’m grateful to you Bari, for helping us connect on this issue so deeply.

Deep money work isn’t magic. It’s conscious transformation.

You can transform boring, dry “money stuff” into a creative, loving self-care practice.

You can replace those tense money conversations (or deafening silence) with your sweetie into intimate Money Dates that bring you closer than ever.

And you can experience money itself as an empowering adventure of deep visioning, mindfulness, and joy.

Because when you finally look into the elephant’s warm, brown eyes and give him some love, he’ll love you right back. We’ll pour the tea and bring the peanuts.
