A Journey Home with Sophie Boldog.
During the final days of 2023, a wonderful friend introduced me to Sophie, the co-founder of the self-exploration deck of cards - A Journey Home. I knew this tool was aligned with the House of Rowdy values the minute I saw and read the cards, (which are now available in our store!) and believed it would be a significant addition to our House of Rowdy brand selection.
After a new year´s manifestation workshop was held in-store last week, led by Sophie, we wanted to have a sit-down with her, in order to find out more about A Journey Home, as well as introduce her to our Rowdy readers and customers. Here is the interview.
Sophie: I started my own spiritual self-exploration journey quite some time ago because I was an incredibly anxious and hyper-sensitive kid and basically completely overwhelmed with ‘humaning’. So, this inner distress led me to do research deep dives, Vipassanas, work with sacred plant medicine, traditional therapy, coaching, energy work… Little did I know that this path would lead me to create a set of cards for my inner child, for the part of me that keeps forgetting to observe my inner monologue with love, allow myself to feel all my emotions and practice noticing the little big wonders in life.
Sophie: Our intention is to inspire a deep spiritual self-exploration journey. This requires presence and vulnerability as well as divergent thinking. So, with all of this in mind, we believe using the cards while taking a small dose of sacred mushrooms could very much deepen the spiritual self-exploration journey, since one is more connected, more aware and experiences enhanced neuroplasticity. However, many people use the cards also without any substance and create mini rituals to connect deeper with themselves in their day to day.
Sophie: I use them when I take small doses of sacred mushrooms in a more ceremonial way. I use the cards to give me inspiration on how to structure my own small ceremony. I start with a blue card which is a grounding exercise and then I select a red card to go deeper into my subconscious and my emotions. Usually after deep work, I repeat a grounding practice to return back to baseline. After that, I finish with a yellow card, so my vibration ends in let’s say, gratitude or joy.
Sophie: My intention for this year is just do. Period.
