In an extraordinary sequence of quieting verse and meditative writing, Joyce Rupp reflects on Sophia Feminine Wisdom in the Hebrew Scriptures. Each healing reflection invites us to dip into Sophias quiet guidance and come away refreshed. Sophia emerges as a comforting presence in the process of examining our old beliefs, loft-over hurts, self-acceptance and connections with the earth. Accompanying mandalas and suggestions for spiritual exercises and journaling make this book especially valuable for personal meditation and growth, and as a group resource / study guide.
THOUGHTS FROM THE AUTHOR
I share my discovered wisdoms with you in order to encourage you on your own inner way and to spark the recognition of your wisdoms that are waiting to be welcomed by you. My hope is that you will gather the gift of time and take the journey to the inner world where Sophia (Wisdom) waits for you.
