Product Details


“Victoria Castle’s book is a brilliant journey into the trance that holds us captive and robs us of our sense of wholeness. The message of The Trance of Scarcity is vital to our time and creates the possibility for a kind of liberation that can have impact on all parts of one’s life. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone.”
—Lynne Twist, author of The Soul of Money

“It takes great effort to wake anybody out of a trance. Victoria’s book does just that. This is an instructive, encouraging, and delightful book that I believe can wake us out of our numbed state, where we’ve forgotten our true nature, our fundamental human goodness. Please read it.”
—Margaret J. Wheatley, author of Leadership and the New Science and Finding Our Way: Leadership for an Uncertain Time

“Of the two dimensions to our money issues—the inner and the outer—Victoria Castle is dealing with the inner side in a masterful way. I recommend this book to anybody who feels that money is a concern in their lives.”
—Bernard Lietaer, author of The Future of Money

“Personal change can be very heady. Exhilarating, to be sure . . . but often disconnected from what the body knows. Your head can get you high, but it can also let you down. Mind and body together, though, help you steer your life truly. Victoria Castle gives you practices that foster body/mind collaboration to help you address not-enough-ness and successfully navigate change.“
—Vicki Robin, co-author of Your Money or Your Life, co-founder Conversation Cafés

“In this insightful, accessible, and graceful book, Victoria Castle explains how Somatics can help free us from the stories of lack that imprison our thinking, emotions, perceptions, and vitality. Readers will appreciate the directness and simplicity of this compassionate, effective perspective for confronting a myth that has lived within us for centuries.”
—Richard Strozzi-Heckler, PhD, Founder, Somatic Coaching, author of In Search of the Warrior Spirit and The Anatomy of Change

“Victoria Castle calls us all to awaken from our trance, see current reality with deeper clarity and courage, and realize the boundless- ness of our true nature and highest human potential.” —Dr. Joel & Michelle Levey, authors of Living in Balance and Wisdom at Work: The Fine Arts of Relaxation, Concentration, & Meditation, founders of and the International Center for Corporate Culture & Organizational Health

“It is difficult to know how a false belief has held you captive, until you break free from it. Victoria Castle reveals how we literally embody our stories, and gently leads us into the empowering territory of a naturally gracious way of being.”
—Rayona Sharpnack, Founder and CEO of the Institute for Women’s Leadership and member of the Women’s Leadership Board of the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University

“Victoria Castle writes from the heart of her own experience, giving a taste of what abundance feels like, and a set of Somatic practices that lead readers to transform this state into a permanent trait. This book is a gem!”
—Dana Carman, founding partner of Pacific Integral, Organiza- tional Consultant, Educator, and Social Activist
