Julia Cameron is perhaps best known for her landmark book on unblocking creativity, “The Artist’s Way.” In "The Prosperous Heart" she delves into the negativity encouraged in our culture rooted in the misperception that prosperity equates with a financial bottom line. Rather, she says, prosperity is a spiritual bottom line that affects all areas of life. “The opposite of prosperity is not poverty. It is anxiety. When we are possessed of a prosperous heart, we do not act rashly out of anxiety…we respond to life rather than merely react to it. Doing so, we find our lives are filled with choices.” Decades of working with creatives who seemed resigned to the role of “starving artist” inspired Cameron to design a 12-week program to explore our relationship with money and the qualities that engender a prosperous heart and fulfilling life. Inspiring stories of how money impacts people’s lives accompany daily tools, exercises, and strategies for discovering the true meaning of prosperity and abundance in this uplifting and beneficial guide.
