Inspiring Conversations with Rowena Winkler of Journey2Consciousness

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rowena Winkler.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
As a Filipina American, I learned from a very early age the importance of hard work, especially when it came to academics. In less than 10 years I obtained my B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. in Communication — which admittedly is an exceptional feat, but less than 5 years later I found myself burnt out and questioning the very career trajectory that brought so much joy not long before.

My father’s passing from cancer in my first year as a professor also prompted me to reevaluate my stressful work life. I ultimately decided to pivot from academia to the marketing industry and try something different. It was during this time that I discovered a love for astrology, tarot, meditation, crystal healing, and wellness, and realized my empathic abilities could be used as a means for helping others, outside of my communications expertise.

For years, I had aspirations to be an entrepreneur and start my own business, but I was letting my own fear get in the way. It wasn’t until I had my beautiful baby girl, Kerrigan Leigh, after years of trying to get pregnant and eventually going through IVF to have her, that I decided that I needed to at least try. I wanted to role model for her, after all.

So in 2020, I launched my LLC, and in 2021 I shifted from a pure astrology business to a coaching business for women.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
My journey with infertility was an experience that truly humbled me.

It showed me that I couldn’t just check boxes per usual to get something I wanted. Then, once I was pregnant and had my beautiful baby girl, we found ourselves in the middle of a global pandemic. The experience of being a new mom when so much was unknown showed me that despite these challenges, I am able to persevere and continue building my business.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Journey2Consciousness LLC?
I call myself a Cosmic Catalyst Coach and Realignment Strategist.

I help women get unstuck and own their magic in the marketplace, whether that is building their confidence to go after their dream job, or building their brand for their own business. Using modalities such as astrology, tarot, and human design, I integrate these tools with my years of teaching at the university level to create a truly unique and personalized coaching approach for my clients.

This comes in the form of 1-on-1 coaching, along with an Intuitive Marketing and Business Planning offering that taps into my years working in the communications and marketing industry.

What are your plans for the future?
I have recently revamped and opened more spots for my 1-on-1 coaching program, so check it out. I also plan on launching a podcast this year based on the interviews I’ve been conducting with other spiritual business owners.

Lastly, I will be giving a TEDx Talk in early April on finding authentic alignment so I am very excited to share my wisdom with a wider audience.
