Travelling like clouds, like the wandering Taoist monks, Claudia went on a soul journey, living a nomadic life, like a modern pilgrim, staying in the liminal zone, embodying the in between space, asking questions by living them. She lived in cities, in the countryside, by the sea, in a forest of cork trees, she made a film on solar panels while living in wilderness, she cared for women with Alzheimer's and dying, practicing compassion in action, while aligning with Soul, and listening to Earth, water, drought and wind. The book is partly memoir, partly travel writing, and explores themes such as uncertainty, loss, simplicity, living in wilderness, Nature connection, healing, energy, and trauma, with depth, to inspire other souls. It follows Claudia's inner and outer journeys, questioning how - as a Wanderer, an artist, an Earth protector and healer - she can bring her gifts, wisdom and resilience into the world to help co-create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
