Money is one of those topics that, uuuuuuuuugh can bring up so many things - full spectrum. For me - guilt, shame, not good enough, contraction, avoidance, and guilt. It’s different for each person. One thing is for sure though, we definitely don’t like to talk about it in this culture. We also don’t provide basic education on how to work with it well. It’s personally one my main healing entry points, and one that is so essential to address if you are going to be engaged in life and not meditating in a cave 24/7.

Over the years I’ve made my way through a variety of approaches to working with money - both spiritual and uber practical, and they seem to miss the full picture. It wasn’t until I came across Bari’s very somatic based money teachings that things started to shift. Bari pieces all the different layers together and in way a that is incredibly nurturing, direct, and effective. In this first episode of season 2 Bari shares some crazy helpful tools and illuminating stories on how we can heal our relationship to money, develop healthy honey practices, and find our way to financial happiness.

"Fear, anxiety, anger, sadness, checking out, joy, guilt, excitement -

all the emotions that come up in any other big area of life will come up with money too.

They are all welcome.

They are all part of the terrain."

We discussed:

  • How Bari’s daunting student loan surprisingly propelled her out of her somatic therapy practice into conscious bookkeeping and later money therapy

  • The power of basic financial education - and how the lack of it affects everyone

  • Why we need to address the psychological, spiritual, and practical levels when working with money

  • Money shame - how it shows up and the initial antidote to unravel it

  • The key of the body check-in for any money moments

  • Money Dates - how to set yourself up well

  • Why you need to look at your numbers and identify your money values

  • The inner money judge voice

  • The money differences that can arise with couples

  • Tips for having those tough money conversations and plans with your partner

  • The Art of Money for Financial Happiness
