AOM 2017 draft

You don’t usually avoid things.

You believe a good life is a conscious one. You blaze your own trail. You question the status quo, reflect deeply, and do your best to base your decisions on your values and good intentions.

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.

But there’s one nagging, glaring exception. One area of your life that feels … off. Shameful. Misaligned, maybe.



It’s that thing you’d rather not think about. (Let alone talk about.) Gulp. Sweaty palms. Scary, pit-in-stomach icky feeling.

The Money Elephant was there when you panicked after splurging on those amazing $200 boots. Can I actually afford these? What’s my bank account even AT, right now? Aaaaah, when will I be a grownup with money?

The Money Elephant was on the phone with you when your new coaching client asked about your rates. I want to “charge what I’m worth,” but what does that even mean?? And what if I just really need the money?

That Money Elephant was sitting between you and your sweetheart for a whole week when you gave each other the silent treatment after you found out how much he’d spent on bike gear (and he found out how much you spent on fancy lotions). How do couples TALK to each other about money, when it’s so vulnerable and icky?

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



He doesn’t bite. (Pinkie promise.) And he’s not really a big, scary monster. When you give him a chance, you’ll see: he can be a powerful, loyal friend.

He will move mountains for you to create the life you want.

He’ll light the candles and pour the wine if you want to feel closer with your sweetie.

He will walk beside you, pointing out opportunities for a little more empowerment and peace of mind.

He’ll let you ride on his back as you learn to trust yourself more, tap your intuition, and grow into the person you know you can be.

Life becomes deeper and sweeter if you give the elephant in the room some love … and peanuts.

Most of us have no idea how to do this, though. 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!

That’s why money is the final frontier of a conscious lifestyle for many, many people.

That’s why I do what I do.

And that’s why I’m so excited to share my favorite teaching program, ever, with you: The Art of Money.

headshot-favorite-1-300wHi, I’m Bari Tessler Linden, Financial Therapist, Mentor Coach, and author of the forthcoming book (release date June 14, 2016), The Art of Money. 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 thrilling culmination of over two decades of my money, emotional, and body-centered work — and my absolute favorite teaching model, 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: with even more support, new Guest Teachers, and the most refined and transformational methodology yet for sustainable financial transformation.

Expect heart-opening insights. Deep transformation. And astonishing community support.

This work isn’t magic. It’s conscious transformation.

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

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

And you can transform money itself into an adventure of deep visioning, mindfulness, and joy … so that it stops holding you back and starts helping you live your dreams.

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.

… with a treasure trove of content

… eclectic, expert Guest Teachers

… monthly live group coaching calls with Bari

… a heart-plucked team of Transformation Assistants

… a kindred, enthusiastic global community

One complete tapestry weaving together personal, couple, and entrepreneurial money teachings.

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.

Here’s what’s included:

  • Money Healing. Money Practices. Money Maps. The program unfolds fluidly through these three essential elements. Engage with ease, knowing we’re holding the grand vision.
  • 12 months. 1 powerful year. Within the grand framework, we’ll dive deeply into one theme every month — from careers to kids, debt to ritual, Enneagram to bookkeeping systems. Explore the varied and vast reaches of your money relationship. With ample time to prepare for the journey and integrate what you’ve learned.
  • Live, 2-hour Group Coaching Call with me, every month. This is your chance to ask me anything. I’ll guide the community through our Monthly Mission and save plenty of time for live Q&A. (Don’t worry: you can always send your questions ahead of time if you’re unavailable — or just shy!)
  • Amazing Guest Teachers. We’ll welcome an amazing roster of guest teachers throughout the year, teaching a “money-and…” class on their area of expertise. You’ll receive access to a full year’s worth of recordings of these classes from The Art of Money 2013, 2014, and 2015.
  • My incredible team of Transformation Assistants. These women are wise guides in their own right — and have been steeped in my Art of Money work for years. They’ll help me support all of you, in more ways than I can count. When you hit a wall, when you need a hand, or when you want some help celebrating (which you will!).
  • Monthly Missions. Start each month fresh and focused with a Monthly Mission email. You’ll also receive video, audio, and workbook exercises to guide your exploration deeper.
  • Irresistible exercises. You’ll be encouraged to continuously engage the material — at your own pace — with weekly homework, reflection prompts, exercises, and more.
  • Ongoing Guidance and Love. You’ll be held with so much love by me and my team. Expect emails, loveletters, support, and resources each week.
  • Rich Community. Connect, share, and engage with your fellow Money Adventurers as much as you like within the private Facebook group. I’m very active here, so if you need a little nudge or reflection from me, just ask!
  • Access to my entire Library. I’ve been gathering incredible resources about money for 14+ years now. And you get all of it. Videos, audios, interviews, exercises, referrals for financial experts, and other resources galore. Don’t fret: we won’t overwhelm you with it all! Your Monthly Mission is curated and focused. But all these other goodies are here for you, whenever you want.

As a Money Adventurer, you’ll be guided through my entire, time-tested approach — and enjoy brand-new teachings on a multitude of themes. From grand vision to monthly themes to baby-steps: discover a vibrant tapestry that lovingly weaves together every thread of your money relationship.

Take my hand: I’ll lead the way as your  Financial Therapist and Mentor Coach. Forgive me for stating the obvious here, but you’ll be getting the very best of me in this program. You and I? We’ll be tight this year. I will be your primary guide, teacher, and cheerleader over the course of our year-long journey. You’ll have direct access to me in our private Facebook group and during monthly Q & A calls. I’ll pop into your inbox with love, support, pep talks, inspiration, resources…and frankly, everything I’ve got.

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!
