Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Meditation and Money Do Mix...No Chanting or Patchouli Required

The most recent market meltdown saw trillions of dollars disappear from the North American economy, and the financial markets drop more than 44% from their highs. Daily volatility was immense, with swings of up to 1,000 points in a single day. A vicious cycle of fear and greed caused panic and suffering for individual investors, investment advisors, and pension fund managers alike.

The Mindful Investor shows you how to use a single tool-Mindfulness meditation-to achieve clarity, focus, and peace of mind with your finances. Oprah, Eckhart Tolle, Phil Jackson, and Tiger Woods have done much to bring meditation out of the mystic shadows and into the mainstream. Google even offers meditation classes to employees. In this book, you will learn how to use Mindfulness and how to combine it with sound financial planning principles-no chanting or patchouli required.

  • Replace greed and desperation with calm and focus when considering your finances.
  • Make money work for you, rather than being controlled by your money.
  • Create your own definition of financial success.
  • Stay focused on what matters, and be level-headed about what you can't control.
  • Learn the basics of Mindfulness meditation, including the five hindrances to success.
  • Acquire simple Mindfulness techniques you can use anytime, anywhere to create calm and focus at will, see clearly under stressful conditions, and make better financial decisions.

About the Author

Maria Gonzalez, BCom, MBA, is a 30-year business veteran who believes that Mindfulness transforms lives. As founder and president of Argonauta Strategic Alliances Consulting Inc., she ensures that Mindfulness is indistinguishable from her business, whether negotiating complex strategic alliances, coaching business leaders to use Mindfulness in their lives and businesses or coaching organizations to function more effectively through Mindfulness. She has been meditating regularly since 1991 and teaching Mindfulness since 2002.
Maria has taught Strategy and Organization Development at Mc Gill University's Desautels Faculty of Management. Over the last two decades she has served on numerous boards and has been a member of the Corporate Advisory Board for the Harvard Medical School - MacArthur Foundation's study on depression and workplace performance. She is a founding member and Vice Chair of the Global Business and Economic Roundtable on Addictions and Mental Health.

Graham Byron, CFP, has been an Investment Advisor and Certified Financial Planner (CFP) for more than 20 years. He has co-authored two other books on financial planning, including the best-selling CARP Financial Planning Guide. Graham believes that applying Mindfulness to money is critical at this turning point in our financial lives. Approaching the financial planning process with calm awareness allows investors to make good decisions and enjoy their wealth.

Format: Hardcover
Financial Planning is about finding the right balance between consumption and saving. Mindfulness meditation teaches a disciplined approach to a life in balance. Kudos to Gonzales and Byron for an easily read book that gives readers a primer to both these topics. The Mindful Investor helps address a deeper purpose of financial planning - how to achieve a happier, more productive and peaceful life by understanding, accepting and working within your financial resources.

Maria and Graham have given me the gift of a primer in mindfully dealing with money. In a world when investing seems like a ride on the craziest of rollercoasters, The Mindful Investor provides me with tools that help me to be clear, to gather my focus and to even relax when planning my financial life. Maria's mindfulness exercises can be applied to investing and to life's challenges in general. I find myself going back to the meditations over and over to find that healthy state of calm.

Before reading The Mindful Investor I felt embarrassed by my lack of financial knowledge and overwhelmed by articles and seminars. Now I have a better understanding and a clear and concise resource at hand. The book includes an exercise for decision making and a great chapter on portfolio construction. As an added bonus, the book delivers a wonderful guide for daily living.

Format: Hardcover
Mindfulness meditation and financial planning are two concepts that complement each other quite sensibly. The authors' explanations of both concepts are clear and succinct, and well illustrated by example. I especially appreciated the perspective The Mindful Investor gave me on how to cope with financial worries when they strike. The book has prepared me well.
