”If you can’t find your way, Ask!”

Ask Alexis Rotella’s oracle and you shall be amused, bemused, startled and inspired. Rotella is an ordained minister, acupuncturist, and the author of more than forty books.

Be a witness to the moment when she sat in her meditation room “with brush and ream of mimeograph paper. Within two hours, about two hundred aphorisms and drawings flew from the brush like crows.”

She gave her witty aphorisms and zen drawings the humorous sobriquet “rotellagrams.”
