Finding Magic Creative Membership Circles: for women & queer femmes of color
Connection. Creativity. Healing. Joy.
ABOUT SOFIA
Hello Dear One. If you've found your way here, I'm honored that our paths have met. I'm Sofia Rose Smith, and I'm on my path doing what I love. I'm a poet & writer, a queer femme of color, and I'm also a spiritual guide and intuitive healer. I lead ceremonies, work closely with my magical one-on-one clients, and host retreats. I also write for Huff Po & offer online writing classes as well as my sweet Finding Magic membership circles. I channel, am a little bit psychic (aren't we all?) and I love connecting women, femmes & queer folks to a sense of their own power, magic, and might. I wasn't always here. I didn't always feel amazing doing what I do. I didn't always call myself a writer and a poet. I didn't always trust myself. In fact, a couple years ago, I was dying in my former career in the non-profit sector. I went from being a super inspired freedom fighter and organizer to feeling super jaded and lost. Things went from great to good to terrible in the matter of a few years. Things got bad...so I took a leap off the proverbial cliff and trusted myself to sprout wings mid-air.
Living the life of your dreams is political -- it's resistive, it's a radical act. To love your life is the most powerful thing you can do. ~Sofia Rose Smith
I did grow those wings. And now, I'm here to help you along a similar journey. Where are you stuck? How do you want to open? How can you honor your queer identity, your feminist politics, your budding spirituality and maybe even write that book that you know is brewing in you. Or start that business you haven't even let yourself dream up. Or find your passion and purpose. Find courage. Build a life you absolutely love. Reconnect with your deepest self, your intuition, your Ancestors, nature, the moon... If you're here, Spirit is sending you exactly what you need. Your medicine. Your gifts are seeking you as fiercely as you are seeking them. Your power is waiting to emerge, right in your belly. Let's find it. Together. Welcome!
PRAISE

"Playful and wholehearted, Sofia gets you tapping into your inner goddess and calling out to your inner most desires. No judgements, no criticisms, just wholly supportive. I highly recommend her."
~ Lynda Vu

"I took Spirit Poems with Sofia at a turbulent time in my life, but the joy and sense of community, creativity and spirit that I felt helped me get to the other side. The process of re-opening my writing practice has allowed me to sustain a new daily writing practice which helped me survive tough times, create clarity, connect with my ancestors and my deep self, land my dream job and feel like myself again."
~Kellee Matsushita

"Sofia is a gem. She has a tremendous ability to hold space for others while kindly and powerfully guiding them to come into their own intuitive affirmations. The connection between spirit, politics and identity in her work is also rare and special."
~Spirit Poems Participant

"In this life it is often hard to find a space that caters holistically to mind, body and spirit. Sofia helped me tap into my sacred divine feminine energy and set forth on blazing the trail to the life of my dreams."
~Amanda Kay Mannshahia

You already know that your healing is political. You already know that every way you can find to love yourself deeper, and to pause, and to breathe, and to dream — is political. The way we love is political. The

7 Rituals for Spring Equinox

Mar. 18, 2016 by

I was born in April, so spring has always been a powerful time for me. That said, I haven’t always practiced ceremony around the coming of this season. I haven’t always held reverence for the Sun, for the spring, for
