In her first completely new work since The Path of Transformation, personal growth pioneer Shakti Gawain presents her definition of prosperity, one that places importance on the fulfillment of our heart & soul's desires rather than the amount of money we have. In interviewing people about their preconceptions & dissatisfactions surrounding their own prosperity, Shakti finds that most people, regardless of their wealth, experience a lack of prosperity. With this in mind, she examines the pitfalls of monetary wealth & how it does not necessarily lead to happiness & prosperity--what she defines as the feeling of having enough of what we truly need. Her approach is fresh & original; she dismantles the cause-&-effect relationship that most people construct around money & happiness, & she challenges us to truly pay attention to our longings, follow them to their roots, & separate them from false desires or addictions. In her own unique & stimulating way, Shakti explores & contrasts three traditional philosophies about wealth & prosperity: the materialistic philosophy, the transcendent spiritual viewpoint, & popular New Age philosophy. Shakti shows us how to create true prosperity, which includes satisfying relationships, happiness, & fulfillment. She speaks with authority & warmth as she sheds new understanding on a subject that concerns us all.
