Co-Owners of Nola Esoteric

Josie Campos + Rev. R. S. Wolfe

Welcome to our about the owners page. It seems you'd like to get to know us a little better as human people. We're not really sure what to say. But we can tell you a few collective things. We're not cool kids, we don't know what it's like to be "cool". We just are what we are. The right people find us and we are always happy to help. We send personal touches with each order. A little note or some lagniappe. At Nola Esoteric what we do is specific. We're proud of that. We're picky and we don't take shortcuts.  What we can tell you about ourselves, is that we are real. There is much work to be done. We humbly thank you for your support. 

Ruby grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and was an awkward homeschooled kid. The mid 1990s was an era that pre-dated reliable internet services. Her early interests in tarot, astrology, herbalism, occultism, and numerology came from unlikely places and past life memories. Most of her esoteric interests, excepting medicinal herbalism, were difficult to cultivate considering her religious home. Ruby's formative years were spent mostly in seclusion, drawing, reading, and listening to classical music. With no shortage of church + school bullies, she turned to astrology for answers and the magic for protection. In her teens she began practicing Tarot and offering readings. She studied studio arts and later behavioral neuroscience in college. Now twenty or more years later she's worked as a naturopathic doctor, as a professional artist, and retired from the service industry in 2008. Ruby founded New Orleans School for Esoteric Arts in May 2014. The nearly twenty year goal of birthing a healing + educational center has been their life's work. Nosea provides a safe space for esoteric education, truth, and self realization while decolonizing sacred wisdom. Ruby is an ordained and licensed minister in the state of Louisiana and offers officiant services. They live uptown and work as a professional astrologer, palmist, healer, writer, visual artist, and mama.
