From the inimitable mind of Madeleine Ryan, an outspoken advocate for neurodiversity, A Room Called Earth is a magical and miraculous adventure inside the mind of an autistic woman. Humorous and heartwarming, and brimming with joy, this hyper-saturated celebration of acceptance is a testament to moving through life without fear, and to opening ourselves up to a new way of relating to one another.
In this fiercely inspiring audiobook, psychotherapist Christine Gutierrez welcomes women to join her in healing the wounds from past hurt to reclaim their worth and come back home to their true self and soul. From stories of resilience, to mantras, meditations, and guided journaling prompts, this audiobook gives women the tools they need to honor their sacred feminine and become who they were always meant to be.
