Sophia Rising

Awakening Your Sacred Wisdom Through Yoga

Sophia (Greek: wisdom). It’s not elusive or something reserved for the enlightened. It’s that still, quiet voice you either heed or ignore. The choice is your to make in each moment. It’s my hope that you’ll spend a moment or two here with me, soaking up and sharing ideas on how we all awaken our own sacred wisdom. Here we’ll explore yoga, not only in the physical mode, but in the holistic fashion in which it was meant to be experienced. Visit my blog, Sophia’s Whispers, to enter into a dialog on what this looks like in our everyday lives or order my book on the subject.

Yoga and Faith – Sophia Rising Book Review

Posted on January 22, 2015

by Your Spiritual Truth

I just finished reading Sophia Rising – awakening your sacred wisdom through yoga by Monette Chilson and I have to say that taking in her words has been nothing short of receiving a Divine Embrace.  Monette skillfully describes the potential depth that can be achieved through diligent yoga practice drawing us deeply into unity with the Divine of our understanding –  thereby finding oneness within ourselves.  Regardless of your religious beliefs, you will love this book.  For those coming from a Christian tradition specifically, Monette artfully presents the way in which yoga complements and even deepens Christian belief and practice and how in truth, the practice of yoga transcends the perceived separation of religiosity.  I love this book and highly recommend it to anyone practicing or contemplating the practice of yoga.
