Virtual Book Tour: Interview at A Congruent Life

I am so delighted to share today’s stop on the Virtual Book Tour.  Andy Gray has a wonderful new interview project offering “inspirational stories of authenticity and happiness” at A Congruent Life, and you can listen to our conversation here.

Eyes of the Heart

Christine Valters Paintner is a writer, contemplative, and the online Abbess of Abbey of the Arts.  In her latest book, Eyes of the Heart, she challenges us to ‘receive images’ instead of ‘take pictures.’

In this episode of A Congruent Life, Christine shares profoundly about ‘following the thread,’ pilgrimage, and vulnerability.
