OUR STORY

Our founder, Alyssa, with the first edition deck designs.

Hi, I’m Alyssa.

I'm the creative engine behind this conscious product. Journaling came to me in a time of great need for peace and clarity. As a yoga + meditation teacher in Pittsburgh, PA, I believe that the trainings, workshops, conversations with clients and girlfriends, heartbreak and healing, all led me to create this product. 

In 2016 my heart was broken after a failed engagement, but I knew that l wasn't, and I set out on a journey to self love and healing, which included journaling assignments from my life coach. Through journaling I discovered more about myself and I went to my journal whenever I needed clarity. It was my safe zone, and I have no doubt that journaling was beyond essential to leading me to who and where I am today.

So how did I get the unique idea? The idea came to me while sitting in my living room, and I thought, "Why not take the healing practice of journaling and fuse it with the inspiring and guiding ritual of pulling cards to help others navigate their lives and discover themselves?" And just like that, the name The Journal Deck came to mind!

I hosted a launch party and we were crowd-funded in June 2017. I still use the same local, eco-friendly printer, and on Mother’s Day 2019 we relaunched with a fresh makeover and new Goddess Give Back Program!
