The Spiritual Experience of Stepping in Sh*t

The other day I had an experience that might be considered negative. You see, the other day I stepped in shit. Literally. This reminded of a time in my life that I had forgotten about where I was traveling through Europe as a young adult and this kept happening to me.

It is so vulnerable to share many of the stories you will find in this book publicly, but I know I have to, not only because knowing it’s okay to share these is part of my journey, but also as a healer and human being.
