Center for SoulArts in Ojai, California, offers the unique opportunity of working individually, one-on-one (privately) - or in the intimate setting of a small group, with internationally-regarded, spiritual author-teacher, Ronda LaRue.

SoulArts is a direct-experience, training spiritual retreat and artisan spa for those who want to know the art of alchemically transforming life conditions, wounds, fears and stories into a soulful adventure of self-healing, access to their own inner guidance, true awakening, and peace of mind. These retreats are created to be life-changing.

Located in Southern California, US, the Ojai Valley, is just 80 miles north of Los Angeles and only 8 miles from the ocean side town of Ventura.

Who Comes to SoulArts Apprenticeship Spiritual Retreats?

ojai retreats and spas california
  • People at a crossroad or significant life transition (mid life crisis or the mid-life rite of passage; relationship or career changes and loss; grief; recovery from disease; feelings of emptiness, loss of meaning and connection to Self, heart, and spiritual Source);
  • those seeking inner vision, spiritual renewal, and clarity of purpose;
  • those ready to breakthrough the ego's intellectual analysis and realize the genius of Life's dance from true presence;
  • those who have "tried everything" and are still stuck, but are willing;
  • those who want to work in private and do not want to be distracted or lost in a large group, and are not afraid to be alone with themselves (or who are, but who do it anyway!);
  • those who seek the special mirroring relationship of a spiritual teacher and guide, based on sacred apprenticeship and the alchemy of spiritual awakening through direct experience with a teacher;
  • people experiencing "the dark night of soul" or in the confusing terrain of egoic dissolution and spiritual awakening;
  • high profile professionals and celebrities who need a completely anonymous and privately-guided place to recharge and reconnect to their vision and well-being;
  • healers, physicians, nurses and life coaches ready to deepen their intuitive capacities and practice;
  • people who have lost their sense of spiritual connection, healthful balance, and meaning and who deeply wish to regain a feeling of soulfulness and meaningful direction in their lives.

This may be felt as an inner longing, as mid-life crisis, as seeking a cure for the source of depression, emptiness or anxiety, as excited anticipation and adventure, or as being "fed up" with life and old repetitive ways.

People come here on an adventurous leap of faith that is free of knowing what to expect. This is because they realize that the old "problem solving" ways are no longer working for them and that it is time to investigate and discover the creative and spiritual language of Soul...

"Dear Ronda, You have given me a gift larger than life, beyond all time and measure: the gift of seeing the wounded masks and layers of fear turn over to reveal my true Self.

Your willingness to go beyond, to go to the depth required, to reveal your own vulnerable honesty for the sake of true insight has amazingly opened me to this gift in my self! Honoring you are... Honoring I am now!" - Diane Yamamoto Skowron
