Ronda LaRue, M.S. Creator/Founder: SoulArts Process of Awakening(TM) 

“Where you have hurt, Give… And see for yourself:  how the Wound becomes Gift!”

…A worthy contemplation of what it means to truly embody a living breakthrough.

For those who have benefited from my teachings and who would like to offer a sustaining gift to help others, here are some areas where your support can make a huge (often life and marriage saving) grace to help others who are where you were when you first came to SoulArts!   (Please take 5 minutes to look at the project needs and figures below and ask yourself where you may feel drawn to be an angel support.)

In profound & awed gratitude!  – ronda




A Few Opportunities To Make A BIG direct difference:

  1. Revolving Scholarship Fund ~ $3.500  (special needs scholarship which needs to be seeded quarterly) – SEE FUND STATUS  BELOW (Thank You!)
  2. The “Art of Breakthrough” In-Residence Project ~ $9,900 still needed.  Matt and Ronda have personally funded $47,600 with additional total of $15,600 in Love Donations.  (Note: This project is not home value work but specific space for clients to be here.) 
  3. “Couples In Crisis” Home Workbook Project ~ $7,300
  4. Wish List (needed supplies and studio replenishment – please email for list of needed items – many of which are probably in your “throw away drawer :)
  5. Volunteer Opportunities & Jobs (editing, video editing or support to do so,  and other admin and business advisory contributions)
  6. Host Ronda for a Retreat/Sponsor a Friend (bringing a SoulArts retreat your home community – please email ronda for more info. This is a fun and meaningful way to stay connected, continue to deepen your own process, and help friends!)
  7. “Offer a Connection” (aka “Oprah where are you?” aka Someone “who knows someone”….that can get that one good “Get Noticed” kickoff to the next level!

spiritual awakening meditation retreat in ojaiTHE NEED:  Oh my:  Where do I start to express what a miracle is this (unusual and unexpected) life calling!

Every day I receive many touching and vulnerable emails from people from all over the world who have somehow heard of my unusual self-healing retreats and who request being able to find space to come work with me. You may have been one of these people yourself!

I remain utterly amazed at the vulnerable readiness to breakthrough I so often can see and feel from those who reach out to me from a place of their own utter despair.

I am blessed beyond measure to meet each person – often at their darkest hour of hopelessness – and to have developed  this unique process I call “SoulArts Process of Awakening” that I use to help people find the gift in their woundedness and their path of self-love, intimacy and purpose!

I’ve come to realize that I offer something truly unique to what is “out there” by way of a genuine self-healing method, spiritual awakening, relationship  healing, and self-realization. It’s not an “ego trip” for me: it’s a stunning seeing: “OH my this is where traditional psychological therapy or standard religion or new age dogma fail!”

I  have a gift (I don’t know why) of seeing the gift within the others wound — and for showing them how to find and follow that gift for themselves to effect their own path of awakening freedom and self-love.

I am asking for you – to help me – support others in a life calling that is challenging to do alone. Your love donation (in any of many forms) is a great support.  

Throughout history until the last 100 years or so, we lived in close community where differing gifts were shared and exchanged for the good of the whole.  For those who emerged as healer-shamans, the tribe –recognizing that the gift of inner seeing also tended to hold the healer-shaman to a state of consciousness and inner seeing so different from everyday life — would step in to protect and provide for their healer medicine men and women by providing food and shelter.  They accepted that someone called to the inner world of a seer/healer didn’t operate on all cylinders when it came to matters of living.   Today, we have lost much of our community care for one another and replaced it with the currency exchange of money.  I am not asking you to fund “me”  – not at all. And I charge because we have lost that community. But what I AM saying that there is much truth to the change in focus required of true healing — and community support is still so very needed if this gift to others is to be sustained and effective.

If this unique teaching has been of service to you or a loved one, please reflect upon this request …and then step in where you are called.  *See Ronda’s YouTube Channel for More…
