Listen to Christine’s podcast interview on Awakened Woman Self-Care

In this podcast Christine explains why she chose the title The Soul’s Slow Ripening. It called to her because her approach, “… has always been organic and tied to the seasons.

She shares her stories of mystics and the magic of stones there.
