Women Connected in Wisdom: A Book of Stories and Resources Rooted in the Eight Dimensions of Wellness is a weaving together of stories, experiences, and resources from a diverse group of women with a depth of knowledge. This volume is a celebration of our different life experiences, racial backgrounds, and generations of wisdom. What we have in common is a shared desire for an equitable and thriving community of collaboration versus competition. This book was born out of the Women Connected in Wisdom Podcast co-hosted by Shannon Mitchell and Christine Gautreaux. It's a podcast rooted in the eight dimensions of wellness where we get together every week to talk about how to be well in business and life. How do we take care of ourselves and our communities in the midst of this chaotic world? How do we stand up for justice, equality, and love while juggling our health, households, and life? Grab your favorite beverage and snack and join us for a conversation, P.S.—Looking forward to being connected! In the meantime be well, be wise, and be whole.
