Ruthie Stender, certified meditation and yoga teacher, is an award-winning author in both memoir and spiritually based self-help. Ruthie believes that in sharing our stories we find greater compassion, love and understanding for one another and see just how interconnected we are as humans. Feeling this sort of heart connection with another human being is what motivates her as a writer and teacher.
The theme of Ruthie’s personal story is resilience. One thing she says she’s learned, though, is that resilience isn’t necessarily about “toughing it out” so much as it is about tapping into your spirit. Spiritual energy runs through our veins; it’s the life force that sustains us during hardship and lights us up on the other side of it. Ruthie’s aim is to help others remember, and draw on, their own resilience—their own spiritual energy—through her work as an author, teacher and speaker.
