TESTIMONIALS FROM TRUE LIFE COACHING RETREATS
On Retreat with Victoria, I learned what it feels like to give myself permission to put me #1 – in a gentle way that’s as essential as breathing.
- B.H., Durango, CO
My experience at Spa for the Soul was one of tremendous support, insight and community. The setting was nurturing in every detail. It reflected Victoria’s remarkable sensitivity to what truly nourishes our souls. While she directed and facilitated the many facets of the weekend, I found her to be completely present with each of us and masterful at hearing what we were seeking to express. I completed the weekend feeling very filled and very grateful.

The Living from your Soul retreat for me was the ultimate launching pad for a personal soul journey. My mind was opened to an array of unique paths in which to explore and expand awareness of my place in this world. Blue Lake Ranch is a stunning, nurturing and still place to renew and seek. Victoria graciously created a truly sacred space that allowed each woman to search and free her soul in complete protection. The weekend was an invaluable experience that I treasure deep in my heart, and I recommend it to any woman regardless of beliefs or fears!
