In this episode, we are deeply honored to speak with the illuminating and illustrious Sophie Strand. She is an Author, Poet, Neo-Troubadour Animist, and Compost Heap "with a propensity to spin yarns that inevitably turn into love stories. Give her a salamander and a stone and she’ll write you a love story."
Content/Trigger Warning: In this episode, Sophie shares openly that she experienced trauma and sexual abuse as a child. Please be in touch with your feelings and take care of your heart while listening. Know who you can reach out to if you become upset.
We discover that our bodies and nervous systems are doorways... openings...portals for stories...
We honor how Rot- Compost- is the womb of life. We find how we can generate life from a mess
We look through kaleidoscopes to see something differently and strengthen our empathy muscle
We are challenged to become the vehicle, to don the costumes of other stories
We get over ourselves, find out it's not all about humans, and get inside the myriad of worlds spinning around us
We agree that nothing can exist in a vacuum…we are all symbiotically connected, and mushrooms are masters of this
We are assured that ecological awareness is deeply tied to our ability to adapt and survive

Sophie Strand is a writer based in the Hudson Valley who focuses on the intersection of spirituality, storytelling, and ecology. But it would probably be more authentic to call her a neo-troubadour animist with a propensity to spin yarns that inevitably turn into love stories. Give her a salamander and a stone and she’ll write you a love story. Sophie was raised by house cats, puffballs, possums, raccoons, and an opinionated, crippled goose. In every neighborhood she’s ever lived in she has been known as “the walker”. She believes strongly that all thinking happens interstitially – between beings, ideas, differences, mythical gradients.
