Some people are attached to being rich. For a long time I was attached to being poor.
That's the basic premise of my new book, LOADED: Money and the Spirituality of Enough.
But just as alcoholism isn't really about alcohol, money neuroses aren't really about money. Mine was about a lack of trust: a near panic what the money I had at any given time was the only money I would ever have. A profound sense of scarcity.
So it's a book about changing out stance toward the universe, toward reality.
It's about learning to take the true measure of ourselves.
It's about community.
Here's an interview with America Magazine, out yesterday, that gives a bit of context.
I'll post a couple of excerpts in a day or two.

where I recently spent several days on a proposal for what I hope is my next book!
I sort of intensely dislike promoting my work, but speaking of taking the true measure of ourselves, and in the spirit of marketing as a transferral of enthusiasm--I'm putting it "out there."
What I really dislike, I find, is feeling vulnerable!
Thank you all for your loyalty, support and warmth. Those are the real riches we're all able to give each other.
