YOUR STORY


Your soul has a story to tell.

A story of a beautiful life that only you can live.

It’s been buried. Deep. For years.

It’s been covered with other stories.

Stories that start with “I should” and “I have to” and “I can’t”.

You are frustrated with the status quo.

You know there’s more to life.

You know there’s more YOU.


You’ve tried to shove that knowing down. You’ve tried to smother the pain of living a mediocre life with strategies and substances (busyness, T.V., food, alcohol, shopping, drugs, bad relationships, sex).

You’ve tried telling yourself you are fine. For a while you even convinced yourself that you were.

And now you’ve reached a point of no return. You know there is a better, more beautiful life out there. And you want it.

Only the current story you are in won’t allow it. You are flooded with all kinds of rational reasons why you should not let go; why you should not try something new; why everything must stay just as it is.

You feel stuck.

If only you knew how to find it. If only you knew how to live it.

If only you had enough ___ (money, time, resources, courage, energy, education, support) to create the life that was truly meant just for you.

No more if onlys. It’s time to start.  

This space is dedicated to your journey. Your journey of self-discovery and healing. Your journey of allowing yourself to be who you really are in the world. This is where you come to re-write the story of your life to the one your soul is aching to tell.

 
 
 
 
talking circles
 

Talking Circles

Circles are safe spaces for healing and self-discovery

Spaces where we can share and be seen. Spaces where we learn to let go of stories of unworthiness and shame.  Spaces where we can offer support and solidarity to others on their journey. Spaces where we can be supported and inspired to take the next courageous step forward on our soul’s journey. 

I love the Talking Circle Danielle hosts where she has created a safe place to share with others, a place where people can give and receive hope when it’s needed most. I am so grateful to have her in my life!

Re-Claiming Mental Real Estate

A monthly mental health talking circle held at the Rivendell Retreat Centre on Bowen Island.

Each month we focus on a different aspect of mental, emotional or spiritual health. A safe space is created where we can share our personal struggles, get supported, offer support to others, and discuss the greater societal context that fosters these issues. 

Circles are by donation however registration is required as we only allow a limited number of participants to maintain the intimacy of the space.

Participating in the Talking Circle thoughtfully hosted by Danielle is valuable and intriguing for me. With limitations of perspective, the events and stories on the river of my life often leave me entangled in side brush, with progress slow. The opportunity to share and listen to other travellers allows the grace of accepting a hand of assistance, a chance to practice the tender heart of compassion, and kindles insight to move, even surf, freely again with life’s currents. Though the gift of the talking circle experience may seem humble, the fresh insight to move forward can be grand. Consider the possibility of joining for a session.
I loved the Talking Circle! It seems to attract great people and the conversation was very real, active and stimulating! There was no pressure to participate and it was interesting to hear people’s experiences and opinions. Thank you so much for the experience!
I can’t say enough good things about these talking circles - Danielle creates a space that’s so warm and safe, you feel comfortable sharing just about anything. The venue is also pretty magical - I love taking myself out of the grind of the day to day, and connecting with such kind people in such a beautiful place. If I can help it, I don’t miss these.

Workshops

Write Your Soul Story

A weekly writing workshop held on TuESDAY evenings at cafe lokal in Vancouver (4th ave and trafalgar). 

We all have a story within us. A beautiful life story that only our soul can tell. Often that deeper voice can be lost in the busyness of the day to day. I know because I lost touch with my own soul's voice for a long time.

Write Your Soul Story is dedicated to reconnecting with our inner voice through writing.

My intention is to create a safe space where you can, through free form writing, reflect on your life, let old stories go, and re-write the story of your life going forward into the one your soul is aching to tell. I offer writing prompts and gentle coaching if you find you are stuck, or unsure where to start.

The cost is $20 for drop in or A package of 6 sessions for $105 you can use over time.

You may come with a goal of writing a memoir, a reflection piece on your life, or a vision for your life going forward, or just with a blank paper and pen, and openness as to where the words take you. All interested in writing from that deep inner voice are welcome.

Coaching

I create space to work with a maximum of two individuals on a one-on-one basis at any given time. If you are ready to dive more deeply into a journey of healing and writing your life from your soul, this may be for you.

The healing and personal growth I’ve experienced since working with Danielle Rondeau as my coach is marvelous. I feel more peaceful, confident and focused with each session. I appreciate her so much for her warmth, compassion, humor, and insight. She makes me feel so understood, and I’ve found this deep awareness and strength within me that I didn’t know I had. I am so grateful to have her in my life!

Danielle is a very intuitive and skilled coach and my work with her has empowered me to step outside my comfort zone and live life with purpose, bravery and heart.
— K. Walter, Non-Profit Executive Director
Working with Danielle has been the biggest gift I have ever given myself. I have never felt so at ease with myself. I find myself accepting more and more the habits and behaviors that I was resisting, finding ease in the flow.
