Rochelle Schieck, the creator of Qoya, is a real, live, human fairy.
Her life is a work of art and it got that way on purpose. Rochelle didn’t grow up in a spiritual community with infinite resources. Instead, she learned to tap into the deep well of resources within herself.
Rochelle and I have been friends for years, and I devour every one of her magical stories. Every time we get together or I catch her in my Instagram feed I’m deeply inspired by how she doesn’t just talk about following her inner knowing, she lives it 100%. Even when it doesn’t make sense, Rochelle listens. And there’s gold wherever that knowing leads her.
And now these stories and the wisdom Rochelle has gleaned along the way are available to everyone who can’t sit and listen to Rochelle in person over a cup of tea (though I do recommend doing that should you ever get the chance).
Rochelle’s written a beautiful book called Qoya: Compass for Navigating an Embodied Life That Is Wise, Wild, and Free. It includes mind-blowing stories of her own journey of learning how to not abandon herself and her body, plus insights and practices for us all to come home to the wisdom of our own bodies.
I read the book voraciously during late-night nursing sessions with my little peanut. My jaw dropped and my eyes misted many times. And I knew I had to share this gem of a book with my community.
Rochelle visited us in Maine a few weeks ago to spread some fairy dust, rock my baby for hours, and film an episode of Glimpse TV with me. This is my first post-baby episode, and I’m so excited to share it with you!
In the episode you’ll learn:
- The definition of embodiment
- How to find your sacred work
- How to step outside the cultural momentum of the pressure to be at a certain place in your life by a certain age
- And more!
