Searching for the White Magician
Stefania Magidson invites the reader to join her on a journey of exploration and rediscovery of that inner place that holds the lens of mystery through which life filters, if we allow it. She invites him to find that magic wand that transforms inner worlds into realities whose potential is only temporarily dormant.
"Searching for the White Magician is a gift for the readers, made with compassion, awareness, love, and empathy to ultimately learn more about ourselves. It’s a book that can easily be appealing to you as an American, as an immigrant, as a woman in search of her femininity, or as a human being searching for spiritual growth. A pleasant and illuminating treat!"
— Cristiana Grigore, Researcher at the Institute for the Study of Human Rights, Columbia University
"Searching for The White Magician is an amazing conversation between two intelligent women exploring some of the deeper questions essential to an authentic inquiry of the meaning and purpose of life. Stefania’s stories are conveyed with Heart and a lightness of Being. Her unusual journey reveals a woman blessed with clear intention to learn, grow, and share her wisdom gleaned from challenging beginnings that have led to a beautiful path of heartfelt service and grace. This book provides not only keys but reflects a generosity of spirit that will touch and transform you."
