​Personal Mentoring/Retreat Intensives, as well as Community Organizational Development Mentoring alike, are designed for those ready to find out what it means to make that leap in perception (sometimes called an awakening) ...and what it takes to integrate the mind-body-spirit into a life of true character, evolution, and purpose. 

Ronda’s consulting with individuals, couples, and organizations remains a direct and personal experiential process with the dance of meeting yourself "eyes wide open" and in relationship with "what is... and the resulting breakthrough that naturally occurs in these sacred spaces of creative inquiry and play.

Her work is not new age, not "woo-woo" not aligned with any one path. Rather, it is inspired in the art of helping an individual, a couple, a family, and an organization find and honor the true integrity/wholeness of the moment.  It is a highly spontaneous "dancing on the fields" of ego-thought, soul-perception, and body-feeling that together, quite naturally bring you to your own inner awareness and clarity of action. This process offers an organic, responsible, profound, playful stepping into a mature self-realization - in living action with self and others.

Her work is open to all genders, sexual identifications, religions or ages so long as the person applying to work with Ronda is dedicated to approaching life from care for others, integrity of action, and a self-responsible maturity to growing in one’s own experience of God/Expanded Awareness without dogma or rules imposed onto others.
