The Glorious (and Gory) Story

Being sent on a Spirit Quest to do seva (service) for the Asian Elephants of Thailand, I had little idea of what that meant. I had only a remembrance that I had been there 10 years ago. At that time, my heart was calling me to ride an elephant in the jungles of Chiang Mai, which dramatically changed the course of my life in an amazing way. I learned how to follow the call of my heart, even if it meant parting ways with my dear friend and travel buddy, traveling solo for the first time ever, and getting deathly ill alone in a room with a mosquito soundtrack blasting around my head. As a result, I made new friends, persevered past physical limitations, and found incredible connection and communion with the elephants and natural environment.

Reviews for my new book! Phase Out: A Secret Guide to Finding Work that Frees Your Soul

“I thoroughly enjoyed my journey through this book.  Sophia provides practical, insightful advice on how to reframe challenges into positive experiences.  Her personal experiences are both inspiring and touching.  The book also contains exercises to help you get clear on how you truly want to live.  It is a must read for anyone interested in tapping into their full potential and living a joyful, purposeful life.❤️”

~Tracey Duffy~

“Being acknowledged in Sophia’s book caught me by surprise – As a teacher, there is no greater responsibility or honor than being some part, however large or small, of a student’s journey. With Sophia’s Virtual Pilgrimage, the tables turned and she became my guide and teacher. When you let yourself live with her book, you will meet yourself and open to possibility, presence and love.”
