    Exploring Enoughness and True Security with Author of Lost and Found, Geneen Roth

    Exploring Enoughness and True Security with Author of Lost and Found, Geneen Roth

    In this candid interview, Geneen shares her own money story about losing her life savings to Bernie Madoff and how it changed her relationship with money - and herself - forever. If you are seeking to bring a deeper sense of security to your money journey, if the question of enoughness resonates with you, I encourage you to do a gentle body check-in and listen in.

    Content Warning: Please be aware that while this interview is a candid conversation about our intimate relationships with money, enoughness, and ourselves, relationship with food, as well as disordered eating behaviors, do come up along the way. If today’s teaching is not right for you, please know I see you and always encourage you to honor your needs and well-being first and foremost.

    You’ll hear:

    - What Geneen learned from her lived experiences with scarcity, abundance, and losing everything more than once.
    - Why Geneen struggled with feeling disconnected from truly receiving (and spending!) the money she earned.
    - How the money beliefs Geneen inherited from her father helped her save even in times of scarcity - and kept her from being present with what she had.
    - Why trying to change “undesirable” behavior keeps you from getting curious about what you believe and why you behave the way you do.
    - How Geenen overcame catastrophic financial loss and found enoughness within.

    3 Powerful Somatic Practices to Cultivate Inner Safety

    3 Powerful Somatic Practices to Cultivate Inner Safety

    Dear Money Adventurer,

    Sometimes, as we move deeper into our relationship with money, we find that this work brings up old wounds or painful emotions that we thought we had healed.

    These moments are a testament to your mindful awareness and personal growth, yet their unfolding can feel disorienting and overwhelming.

    Finding yourself moving through painful histories while also simultaneously trying to learn new practical money skills can feel like the ground is giving way beneath your feet.

    You might feel like a child again, yearning for care and support amid difficulty, longing for safety and stability that you cannot provide yourself.

    In the midst of these truths lies another: in turning inward to bring awareness and compassion to the places where we feel unsafe, we can learn to cultivate a deeper sense of inner safety to ground us through life’s ebbs and flows.

    The somatic term for this feeling-safe-in-your-body-no-matter-what is “self-regulation.” – Just as the name suggests, it is a gift that we can cultivate for ourselves.

    I’m going to share three of my favorite somatic practices to help you foster a sense of internal safety as you navigate your money journey.

    These body-based exercises are simple, yet profoundly powerful.

    When you find yourself struggling with money stress, discomfort, or any big emotion, these personal practices can help you feel supported as you learn to self-regulate with compassion and gentle curiosity.

    Let me show you how.

    Dear Money Adventurer,

    Yet, no matter how different our journeys may be, there are certain themes and questions that we all struggle with at some point or another. And when we realize that we aren’t the only ones facing these challenges, the burden is a little easier to carry.

    As your guide on this journey, here are the 10 Things Your Financial Therapist (me!) wants you to know right now.

    How to Transform the Attachment Between Self-worth and Money

    How to Transform the Attachment Between Self-worth and Money

    In a world where so often our self-worth gets tied to the work we do or the money we make, we unconsciously invest our personal value in metrics, paychecks, and bottom lines. And we undermine our ability to truly honor and share our gifts, to show up as our most authentic selves, and to thrive in our work and lives.

    So, how can we transform the attachment between self-worth and money that is so prevalent in life and business?

    This question came up during my recent Office Hours call with the Art of Money participants, and the answer is a profoundly personal journey of self-discovery, tuning in to our inner knowing, and reclaiming our deepest values.
