2013 Nautilus Books for a Better World Gold winner as Best Inner Prosperity/Right Livelihood Book 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."
Drawing on her decades of experience as an expert on the creative process working with artists, Cameron shines a clear light on the path to forging a healthy relationship with money together with a rich creative life. In this wise book, she gives readers the courage and permission to live their lives as they create their art: with purpose, freedom, and inspiration.
--Library Journal"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."
