I am so glad I made the decision [to go through the twelve week course]! I gradually came to understand why I shopped the way I did and how to overcome the compulsion. Hearing the others in the group share their own experiences was extremely helpful; I didn’t feel so isolated anymore; my secret was out. -J. M., Oklahoma
I feel blessed to have found this program, where I discovered so many things. Though I had always rationalized my purchases, I hid them from my husband. In the group, I abandoned this denial—my first major victory. -S.T., Minneapolis, Minnesota

- Build money mindfulness to help you assess the implications of your choices
- Resist the pull of the six major shopping magnets
- Utilize the wisdom of your body, heart, mind, and spirit
- Anticipate lapses, avoid relapses, and plan for upcoming high risk situations.
