"The moment that your phone starts to detract from lived experience is the moment to make a different choice." - Sophia Rose

In this episode of #moonwisepodcast, we speak with herbalist and folk healer Sophia Rose about technological hygiene and her thoughts on connection in the digital age.

Sophia Rose is a woman who listens closely to the singing of the Earth’s Spirit and shares the beauty of all that she hears in her work with plants and people. She’s the force behind La Abeja Herbs and Garden Party, a revolutionary take on online herbal education.

In our conversation, we get real about our collective addiction to smartphones and discuss the urgent need for more balance in our use of technology. She offers practical tips for reclaiming our time and attention as well as strategies for decolonizing our minds. She reminds us that, "Our awareness and internal space is sacred and must remain sovereign." She says that our use of these technologies "needs to feel optional, it needs to feel like something that is bringing you joy and adding to your experience rather than taking you out of it." Afterall, "communication should be happening at the speed of life and not the other way around."

We also talk about:

  • How our brains are shaped by technology

  • Tips for reducing smart phone use

  • Managing subconscious messages from social media

  • How to cultivate more spaciousness in daily life

  • The importance of net neutrality
