Expanded x Ep 32 - Ruby Warrington: Founder of The Numinous & Club SODA NYC
DO NOT PUT THE PRESSURE ON YOUR PASSIONS TO EARN YOU A LIVING.
I know today’s guest is a huge expander for so many of us: Ruby Warrington, the founder of The Numinous and Club SODA NYC. Ruby is also the author of a new book called Sober Curious: The Blissful Sleep, Greater Focus, Limitless Presence, and Deep Connection Awaiting Us All on the Other Side of Alcohol. It's an examination of our relationship with alcohol and what life is like in sobriety, not necessarily through the model of AA but through the model of holistic spirituality. I think you'll find this episode extremely expansive if you're the person who had your dream job, according to society, but decided it wasn't as fulfilling as you thought it would be, or if you’ve ever found yourself “sober curious.”
In this episode, we talk about:
The oppressive relationship Ruby was trapped in for much of her early adulthood & how she empowered herself to leave and walk away
Finding your self-worth by following your passion
Ruby’s incredible career in journalism – and why she ultimately decided to leave this dream job to become an entrepreneur
How learning about spirituality revealed what Ruby had been looking for, on a deep soul level
Making spiritual topics modern and chic, instead of crunchy or fitnessy
Manifestation in action: how Ruby ended up writing her first book
The different and very diverse journeys that people have to living without alcohol
Why Sober Curious is about questioning the default, questioning the norm
Finding love at first sight – and a life-long expander!
