The Soul of Money is a wise and inspiring exploration of the connection between money and a fulfilling life.

amazon   bn

This compelling and fundamentally liberating book shows us that examining our attitudes toward money– how we earn it, spend it, invest it, and give it away–can offer surprising insight into our lives, our values and the essence of prosperity.

Through moving stories and practical principles, Lynne demonstrates how we can replace feelings of scarcity and guilt with experiences of sufficiency and freedom. Lynne shares from her own life and work, a journey illuminated by remarkable encounters with the richest and poorest people on earth, from the famous (Mother Teresa and the Dalai Lama) to the anonymous but unforgettable heroes of everyday life.


The Path Made Clear: Discovering Your Life's Direction and Purpose

Lynne Twist is quoted in Oprah's latest book

In her latest book, The Path Made Clear, Oprah shares what she sees as a guide for activating your deepest vision of yourself, offering the framework for creating not just a life of success, but one of significance. The book’s ten chapters are organized to help you recognize the important milestones along the road to self-discovery, laying out what you really need in order to achieve personal contentment, and what life’s detours are there to teach us.

Oprah opens each chapter by sharing her own key lessons and the personal stories that helped set the course for her best life. She then brings together wisdom and insights from luminaries in a wide array of fields, inspiring readers to consider what they’re meant to do in the world and how to pursue it with passion and focus. Renowned figures such as Eckhart Tolle, Brene Brown, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Elizabeth Gilbert, Jay-Z, and Ellen DeGeneres share the greatest lessons from their own journeys toward a life filled with purpose.

Here is what one reviewer said about Lynne's Contribution to Oprah's book

Perhaps the most powerful section is a short Q&A Winfrey conducts with Unleasing the Soul of Money author Lynne Twist on the silent power of money. Twist makes a fantastic point about how we always think we need 30 per cent more of everything. “There’s not enough time. There’s not enough money. There’s not enough love. There are not enough vacations … every conversation, every lunch, every dinner, everything is about what we don’t have enough of,” Twist says.

She says that mindset affects our sense of ourselves – “we’re not enough, I’m not enough” – which becomes the source of so much suffering. Instead, we should aim for sufficiency, “a place of wholeness, completeness and deep understanding of who we are

Paired with over 100 awe-inspiring photographs to help illuminate the wisdom of these messages, The Path Made Clear provides readers with a beautiful resource for achieving a life lived in service of your calling – whatever it may be.

Vicki Robin Author, Your Money or Your Life

Lynne Twist’s deep insights into our human relationship to money, coupled with her life’s work in the arena of personal abundance and fundraising make her a must-read author. The Soul of Money is on the top of my list of reading for anyone wanting to understand and improve their relationship to money.

Lenedra Carroll Businesswoman and Author, The Architecture of All Abundance

In an era bloated with data, we are starved for wisdom.


Eloquently and passionately written, The Soul of Money describes how money can be a vehicle to fulfill our highest ideals of life and love and to discover new meaning in our lives. I recommend it highly.

Dean Ornish, M.D. Author, Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease

In a nation and world divided more sharply than ever between the haves and have-nots, where millionaires’ desires are filled before children’s and the poor’s needs, The Soul of Money reminds us that when you follow the money, you find out what we really care about and that there are choices that will lead down a new, more just path.

Marian Wright Edelman President, Children’s Defense Fund

If you have ever touched money, made money, spent money, given money away, saved money, if money has kept you up at night or helped you to sleep in peace, this book was written for you.
