Lisa_VonderHaar_Sara_Papathakis.pngLisa VonderHaar and Sara Papathakis of SoulTerra, a mother/daughter duo, bring their intuition and wisdom to the vision of developing love and connection with self, others and Nature. We believe that as we discover the various aspects/parts of our self, we learn to truly accept ourselves and open to Love. In identifying these parts and expressing them honestly, we are living our truth or life purpose which can be seen as our Divine potential. Learning to love oneself opens us to compassion for others and for the earth.

SoulTerra is most inspired to offer Mother/Daughter Transformation programs, supporting the daughter in becoming her own person while maintaining a healthy relationship with the mother. Our own emancipation process has allowed us to accept ourselves and each other. We found how fulfilling it can be to have a close mother/daughter relationship and want to offer this experience to other mothers and daughters.

Our first 2-3 hour session with a mother and daughter is conducted in our Salida CO office. We suggest the daughters be adults or mature adolescents. An interview process will determine the appropriateness of our work for the mother and daughter. Further sessions are encouraged to deepen awareness of each of your parts and to learn to communicate with each other. A personalized plan is developed as we learn the needs and desires of each woman and their relationship. Whenever possible, sessions are offered in nature, inviting a deeper, spiritual component.
