Live your life from a new place of choice
Join Soul Life for therapeutic groups focused on consciously creating your life and happiness.
Our therapy groups meet once weekly and follow a structured format for healing. Our Soul Life groups are professionally guided groups focused on healing the soul and living a life with passion and purpose. New groups are forming and open to those who seek deeper connections with self and others. The groups are highly experiential to include journaling, sharing, creative expression, and soul ceremonies to release old patterns and transform thoughts, behaviors, and emotional responses.
Live your life from a new place of choice! The focus is on freeing yourself from a life of fear and limitations and consciously awakening and choosing the life your heart desires. Contact us today to learn more as new groups start frequently.

I am humbled and energized when I read these testimonials again. I have studied and practiced psychotherapy and marriage and family therapy since 1987. This Journey to the Soul is one that Kim Purcell and I have creatively refined and expanded by combining our professional trainings and personal experiences into one 12-week package. I am thrilled to facilitate this journey again with Kim and I feel honored to help others discover and uncover their True, Free Self. I have studied and practiced many techniques and therapies over the years and I find that this group journey, with our unique synergies, has a power like no other. Sharing within a sacred circle is not a usual occurrence in our daily lives. Yet, it is so necessary! I believe Peace begins with me—and with each and every one of us. We can only affect our own inner Peace and that in turn allows us to BE Peace in the world.
This fall Soul Life Journey is a truly transformational journey to the heart. We incorporate the works of Don Miguel Ruiz, the Dreaming Heaven Authors (including our personal mentors Lee McCormick and Francis Rico), as well traditional psychotherapy, meditation and mindfulness teachings and Toltec spiritual practices. Our journey is one of self-directed transformation to Soul-FULL living, free from reacting and suffering. I whole-heartedly believe in this process and I feel privileged to witness the deep healing and joyful recognition of self; one person at a time!
Take the leap! Join our sacred circle! We want to KNOW YOU!
This group journey saved my life. When I received that first email from Kim I knew it was Divine intervention and design. I replied yes to her email within seconds not knowing how I would commit or find the time with a 9 month old and very limited support, but I said YES anyway, trusting God that I would find a way.
Even with my initial excitement about the group as the first day approached my mind was filled with reasons not to go (I’ve got too much to do, I don’t have a baby sitter, I still haven’t lost this baby weight and I have nothing to wear, I just don’t have time, I don’t even know these people) The rambling in my head went on, but my heart and soul whispered….”go…just go”. So, I put on the only nonmaternity pants I could squeeze myself into, packed up my baby and headed out. When I entered our group space, I was greeted not only by Chez and Kim’s beautiful smiles, but by this lovely and sacred space where we were to sit together…in a circle. I had dreamed of a circle of women before, I had visions of it, I prayed for it and I had a longing for it. “The circle” was confirmation again that it was divinely placed in my life and yet my mind was still flooding with doubts and excuses. However my spirit let out a sigh of relief as to say, ”ahhhhhhh, you are here, you have arrived, you are exactly where you need to be.”
It was during the first week of the group that I had an overwhelming sense that I had actually been preparing for this journey for years, that a multitude of events and paths had led me here and again I was exactly where I needed to be. I had no idea what to expect or what this “authentic self” was that Chez, Kim and the Dreaming Heaven book kept talking about but I embraced the process with open arms.
One of my favorite quotes from Paulo Coelho ’s, The Alchemist says “ And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. ” This was the case for my dreaming heaven journey. The help and support I needed came at the right time, and with that, I was able to dive right in.
In doing the work and joining together in circle it’s as if I could feel myself coming back to life. Each week brought healing, each week brought deeper understanding, each week brought release, each week brought more love, more peace and more joy. With each week layers were peeled away and I could feel myself becoming more of me…my authentic self. ahhh there it was the mystery of the authentic self revealed, I don’t think anyone could explain it enough, I had to experience it. And although nothing in my life has actually changed, I have changed and therefore everything has changed. I’m crying as I write this now because I’m filled with gratitude. It’s so very hard to articulate and convey the impact that this group has had on my life. I am so grateful to Chez and Kim for guiding me through the journey, their wisdom and love is a gift. So thankful or all the ladies in our group for showering me with love and kindness and support. For letting me bring the ugliest, most shameful parts of my life and self and still seeing the light and love within me. Thank you for seeing me beautiful!
I’ve done a lot of work on myself on my own with great progress, but I feel that a significant part of the journey’s profound impact and power is in the coming together each week. The blogger Mysticmama expresses what I’m feeling perfectly. She says: “There is something so powerful when women come together to support each other on their journey, in the hopes and dreams. We are healed, we are nurtured, we feel comforted and understood. Moreover, when you share sacred space together you magnify the power of your intentions and you energetically create a web of support for not only your circle of women friends but with women everywhere.”
In my personal journey I was hurting and struggling and was looking for healing and connection. Your path may be different, but if you feel at all a call to the circle I encourage you to listen, to take that leap of faith, to commit and embrace the blessings that will soon shower over you.

Dear Chez and Kim,
I cannot thank you enough for inviting me to take the journey with you.
The experience for me has been life changing. I am so grateful that I went through the journey and I sincerely see it as a gift from above.
I feel so much better, physically and emotionally. I adore our group and consider each person in our group as close as family. Please know how much I appreciate you and all your wisdom and guidance. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who wants a happier and more fulfilling life
What and amazing experience this journey has been! I learned so much about myself, gained some tools to help me through difficult times, and made some lifelong friends. I very quickly began to see the weekly gatherings as a respite from the chaos of life — a time to get centered and nourish the soul. Knowing that we were in the capable hands of Chez and Kim made the experience even more for fulfilling. Chez is an amazingly insightful and knowledgeable psychotherapist, not to mention a woman I’ve admired for decades. And Kim’s positivity and excitement for the program and general zest for life are infectious. If you are hesitating at all about joining the group, just do it! You will be so glad you did!
I have to say this journey has been one of the most potent, helpful, calming, intentional things I’ve done. Whew. What a wonderful journey. I started it mainly out of looking for more social connection and ended up with that and a whole lot more. Like most people I had no idea what I was in for.
When Kim mentioned at the first meeting that this was a journey to find your authentic self I was thinking, “I really don’t like my authentic self.” I was thinking of the me that has a temper, yells at her kids, was jaded and pessimistic, etc.
But what Kim was really talking about was the self that was who you were before the world had put an imprint on you. Like how you were as a little kid, how kids are. Open, loving, kind, believing.
So the journey began of peeling back layers. Layers that make you feel contracted instead of expanded.
One of the first assignments was to write who you are (which is usually several pages about your life, roles, etc.). That was followed by an assignment of who you are without any roles attached. This was usually half a page. I was really moved by hearing everyone’s stories. And the big aha was how much everyone truly has a story. Honestly it helped me a lot to know I wasn’t the only one that had experienced deep pain.
When I wrote mine it felt really raw. It was hard to do. This was followed in the weeks to come by assignments to think of everyone whose ever hurt you that you feel you need to forgive. Through writing it out and the guided meditations and work with the wonderful ladies in the group I was able to release some things I’d been hanging on to. Areas in my soul that had felt dark began to sparkle (when I looked into those spaces they looked like sparkling gold rooms instead of the dark caves they used to be).
About 8 weeks into the journey my husband noted one day that I was no longer ruminating about the difficulties I had with my mom.
One of the most potent guided meditations for me was the one on emotions. How we are not our emotions and we can watch them come in like waves of an ocean. We can see and feel them and then let them pass through.
I loved that during this journey I was able to move from being the pessimistic cynic I’d chosen to be in an attempt to protect myself to the more open, responsive person I remember being when I was younger.
There is so much more I could write. This was such a transforming journey. I was also so moved by the stories of others and seeing them heal and release things. Even for those who came with less baggage to unpack, I saw every person in our group impacted for the good. I love the continued ongoing relationships I have with the ladies from our journey. The group is like a continued anchor in my life.
I plan to do the journey again. I’m looking forward to going deeper and look forward to being connected to another group of wonderful beings.
