Grand Haven, MI (Vocus) April 27, 2010
Bari Tessler Linden holds an M.A. in Somatic Psychology from Naropa University and is a mom, teacher, financial therapist, speaker and the founder of Conscious Bookkeeping. Bari spent her 20’s deeply submerged in the study and practice of psychology in Boulder, CO. She spent her time working at Hospice, both leading bereavement groups and caring for elderly, working as a counselor in a variety of mental health facilities and leading Authentic Movement groups for young women, Bari then spent her early 30’s studying the practical side of life and learning everything she could about bookkeeping systems and basic financial management.
In 2001, she launched Conscious Bookkeeping, a system and organization that combines the practical skills of financial literacy with a more introspective, values-based money philosophy and process. Her method integrates Financial Therapy, Bookkeeping Training and Life Visioning.
She teaches the Conscious Bookkeeping method with the intention that it will heal some of the tensions between the internal and external challenges of our postmodern life and that it will assist and guide the individual, couple, family, and entrepreneur into a more conscious, intimate & successful relationship with money, themselves, with each other, and with their contribution to the world.
Executive Director of HighestPurpose.org, Steve Frazee, says “We are delighted to have Bari join the team. She brings a unique perspective of money that is crucial in today’s volatile economy.” Frazee originally met her at Nazrudin Conference. The Nazrudin Conference is a unique conference of financial planners, consultants, and therapists that focus on a holistic approach to life and financial planning. They became fast friends. “I’ve been watching the impact that Bari has in people’s lives for years now. Our clients are going to love her!”
