Organizations We Admire
Dr. Elaine Richardson
The title of this book is no metaphor or allusion, but a literal shorthand for a remarkable, unpredictable journey. She inherits a plain way of talking about horrific pain from a mother who seemed impossible to shock. The way too fast way she grew up was and is too common, but her will to remap her destiny is uncommon indeed. To call her story inspiring would be itself too plain a thing, hers is a heroic life." -dream Hampton, writer and filmmaker
Wisdom Walk is a personal development resource for your mind-body and soul. Any pain that is not transformed will be transferred, and this cosmic truth informs and guides the essential goal of wisdom walking -- learning how to recognize and release any pain that is blocking fulfillment in life, or what can also be understood as having your 'happy endings' in life.
