THE STORY OF A WHALE UNDER MY RUG”

“MIRA shows you how to navigate life’s hardships, see the ego’s tricks for what they are, and return to love. With just few words and simple drawings she leads you on a direct and clear path to deep life lessons and conjures feelings of joy, compassion, courage, and hope.”
