MotherWealth: The Feminine Path to Money
by Naomi Rose
"This book is something that all women will be able to relate to and take something from by the time they finish that last page. Immediately after reading the first part of MotherWealth, I felt an amazing sense of calm and peace take over (during a turbulent time in my life). This book is personal, comfortable, and entertaining. Do yourself a favor and buy this book!"—Erica B.
"This book is a profound treasure for anyone looking to understand her or his relationship to money. Naomi Rose's writing is incredibly moving. She offers us the model of her own relationship to the inner Feminine that is so honest, painful, beautiful and powerfully rendered that I found myself unable to put the book down. The intimacy of her writing is a gift. The book offered me insight into how the relationship to value, trust and presence is distorted by the culture and by our own personal histories, and how healing one's relationship with money and reclaiming a sense of one's own value is one of the most powerfully transformative journeys we undertake. Bravo!"—Dr. C. Shoshana Fershtman, PhD
From the book:
At a time when I was in need of money yet found it hard to push myself to make money, the process of reaching out to mend the rift with my long-dead mother conferred help in unexpected ways, grace in a place I had not been looking. My mind fumed and sputtered, “What will I do?” but my body told me that the space to have whatever I needed was in me. It was not a matter, this innate knowing said, of “going out and getting”: there was a whole other magnetic, inherent way of having what I needed.
And so it was. Out of my fears and longings and missteps, I had happened upon a natural phenomenon available to every woman and to every man who blesses that he is of woman born. Without any 'going and getting,' the money I needed just came."
You don’t have to “Go Out” and get it. You just have to be Home to receive it.
Reader Praise for MotherWealth
"In this deeply warm-hearted and beautifully written book, Naomi Rose takes us with her on a very personal and profound journey to discover a woman’s way into the realms of money. On her search for answers she finds herself recalling learning to knit at her grandmother's knee, suckling her baby, and playing the piano. Through her very personal and profound journey, she helps us move past our shame around money, and learn an instinctual way to open to allowing our wealth to come to us by giving up going out to get it.” — Barbara Wilder, author, Money Is Love
“MotherWealth captures the way it feels to value the soul’s journey at least as much as money. How we are with money speaks volumes about how we relate to our own inner riches, as the book illustrates through deeply personal, feminine stories and reflections. This book poignantly addresses on an intimate level what Lynne Twist’s The Soul of Money has done on a societal level: bringing the heart of compassion into our evolving understanding of how money is connected to the soul. This feminine approach to money and its place in our lives has the potential to connect and heal us. One of MotherWealth's valuable contributions is to open the conversation and offer a pathway to wholeness. Read it and join the conversation.” — Kay Sandberg, Former Director, The Soul of Money Institute
Blessings to you for the gift of your story to the world. You brought us right into your process of 'Here I am,' describing it in a way that shows how personal and transforming it can be." — Barbara Hanneloré, author, The Moon and You: A Woman's Guide to a More Enjoyable Monthly Cycle
"At first I speed-read through the book, looking for the ‘how-to’s’ and money-management ideas. ‘Hey, what is this?’ I thought, a bit annoyed. But I took the book home. I stayed up with it all night. I wept, and came out cleansed, and as pure of heart as when I was a girl.” — A Reader
"If you’ve ever felt you couldn’t comprehend money, how it works, how to get it, its meaning in our lives, this book is for you. As a writer, I was impressed with how the author weaves together the universal and the personal. The story reveals and illuminates women’s most vulnerable feelings as they face finances, bringing insight and clarity to where there is much confusion and misunderstanding. It’s also about the relationship between mothers and daughters. And by taking us with her on her own quest to understand money, Naomi Rose ultimately leads us to the meaning of life itself.” — A Reader
“Your book went straight to the core of me and touched me in inexplicable ways. I found myself spontaneously in tears at times. It was as if God Herself were speaking to me. The experience was unquestionably sacred; and because of that, some form of healing took place, though it is not something I can grasp with my normal mind. I only know that your truth reflects my truth; and though I stand close to my faith, your story brings me yet closer.” — A Reader
“After reading MotherWealth I knew I had read a finely crafted literary work which had carefully plumbed the depth of poverty mind and what it is like to be born a woman in this time. The story is one which carries the seeker back to her center in a world of scarcity and confusion. Naomi embraces her losses, disillusionments and heartbreaks, undoing her conditioned programming to a false self and finding compassion for her real self. Abandoning the myth of "Going Out to make money," she courageously enters the path of awakening. Naomi Rose is a princess weaving straw into gold, using her experiences and interpretations of deprivation and tragedy as the path to the abundance of The Mother within herself. There are very few books being written today that come close to this kind of genius.” — Judith Avalon, M.A., author, Entering into the Heart of the Mother
“This book isn’t just for women. As a man, I also find this book true—and beautiful. It isn’t just women who have been wounded by having to Go Out. The machismo way of working doesn’t work for any of us.” — A Reader
"This book is something that all women will be able to relate to and take something from by the time they finish that last page. Immediately after reading the first part of MotherWealth, I felt an amazing sense of calm and peace take over (during a turbulent time in my life).

"An interesting exploration into one woman's complicated and highly personal journey to a healthy relationship to her money. Naomi Rose encourages us all to examine our assumptions about money and to be conscious about our behavior around it." — Susan McCarthy, "The Soul Authority on Money Management"; author, The Value of Money; host of the PBS Special, "Money and Emotions"
"This book is a profound treasure for anyone looking to understand her or his relationship to money. Naomi Rose's writing is incredibly moving.

“You know how it is when you’re hungry, and you’re given the perfect morsels, at the right time, in the sweetest way? First you don’t believe it; then you really taste it; then you gobble a bit; then you slow down and savor it. And when it’s all gone, you don’t want anything else. You just want to let the flavors steep in your memory, and feed your soul forever. That’s MotherWealth.” — A Reader
“Pure joy!” — A Reader
“This book is like Holy Scripture.” — A Reader
MotherWealth: The Feminine Path to Money is part of the Rose Press "Money & the Inner Life" series.
Most of us learn that money is something outside us, and that how much of it we have depends on such factors as luck, hard work, constant attention to getting it, and so on. But our inner life — our connection with, or separation from, our deep nature — is the real key to having what we need, and to trusting life to support us totally.
The books put out by Rose Press are meant to last and last and last.
Unlike many books that are published to make a temporary splash and then fade out into dim memory or total forgetfulness, Rose Press books are meant to live in your heart and in your life.
So not only do they remain on your bookshelf (or your hard drive, portable reading device, etc): they also remain inside you, part of the impressions that make up your inner being. And sometimes ~ much like a sudden affectionate thought about an old friend with whom you’ve been out of contact ~ the desire will come to pick up and read these books again and make their acquaintance (and your own) again from the place where you are now.
Some of these books are already perennials: issued and reissued to encounter new readers and re-visit old ones. Others are brand new and just putting down roots, to return to readers’ attentions in their own passing seasons.
Books that go deep take time to write, so quality may win out over quantity, here. We hope you will content yourself with the current varieties in this “garden,” and look forward to new blooms to come.
