Kate Shipp’s story is one of courage, valor, strength, and fierce faith. It is a story of perseverance, of humility, of humanity. The dance between worlds that she takes you through is like a flame that can only be seen in the dark. In order to understand the magnificence of light, one must become deeply intimate with the shadows of night.
Kate has an ability to explain the unseen world in an embodied way, and describe the many facets of being human as she walked through a treacherous land of trauma recovery, finally revealing the Truths of her life that were intentionally buried beneath the rock piles of shame and grief. These Truths became the new foundation upon which she built a joy-filled life.
This story is not for the faint of heart. It’s edgy, sometimes triggering, and always vulnerable and real. It asks that you meet yourself over and over again with presence, compassion, grace, and love, as you turn each page.
Kate’s story is in some ways everyone’s story; a story of death and rebirth many times. The sharing of her journey may in fact be the light you need to find the courage to meet the shadows of your past with only the deepest acceptance and love.
May the words in this book illuminate the light in your heart, and may you allow that light to guide you home.
