My Sunday Ritual

I’ve been an On Being listener/follower through all of its metamorphosis’s, and now the journey begins in a new format but with the truths, lessons, and stories I’ve come to rely on as my map to navigate this world. Continue to do the work that you do so your audience can be inspired to continue to do the work we need to do: individually and collectively.

Developer Response ,

Rich and rewarding experience

On Being Wisdom isn’t just an app. In the short time I’ve been using it, it’s been a rich and rewarding experience. I’ve gained enough already in wisdom, insight and encouragement to make it well worth the investment. I intend to make it a regular part of my self and spiritual development.

Developer Response ,

Thank you. We're humbled by this review, and we appreciate knowing the Wisdom app has been so meaningful to you in your early experience of it.

Brilliant achievement

Krista and her team have mined the vast treasury of her archive for nuggets of wisdom from some of the finest teachers of our time. Then, with Krista’s superb introductory syntheses, arranged them to help those who seek hope to find and strengthen it within themselves.
