About: A Walk With Lady Wisdom

Updated: Feb 10, 2023

As I read this book, I felt seen and understood about my own pain in ways that helped me understand myself and let go of burdens I have felt my whole life. AND also, as I read, new ways of looking at others and their pain came clearer, and I have found myself with some fresh energy and new compassion sitting knee to…
