Sophia is the incarnation of wisdom, personified eloquently by the writer of the Wisdom of Solomon. Some see Sophia as a deity in her own right; others see her as representing the Bride of Christ (Revelation 19), others as a feminine aspect of God representing wisdom (Proverbs 8 and 9), and still others as a theological concept regarding the wisdom of God. Author and yogini Monette Chilson invites readers to revel in the mystery that surrounds her as they learn how to use yoga to access the divine within. Yoga and meditation practices allow us to begin to hear Sophia's voice.
