unfolding into JOY



During this time of lockdown and uncertainty I am adding new offerings to meet the changed needs of my clients and community. Feel free to join the tribe.


When everything in the outside world is turned upside down you need an anchor. Better yet is cultivating the capacity to anchor in yourself. I call this creating SANCTUARY.

Sanctuary is a place where we find peace, grounding, rest, respite—where we are safe. Traditionally, a sanctuary is a sacred place, such as a church or other place of worship that offers sacred shelter. In the SANCTUARY project I will hold sacred space for you to go within, explore, ground, create and cultivate a place of calm inside you: your inner sanctuary.

The SANCTUARY project is a semi-structured process that connects you with yourself and a community of creative people. In step 1) you commit to a small creative project, make room for it, do it (for example through SoulCollage, painting, drawing, writing, dancing), and in step 2) join me and others for a group zoom call to share your creation, be witnessed and acknowledged.

During the entire process you are held and you have permission to express yourself exactly the way you are.

Registration is free and uncomplicated. Just send me an email to let me know that you intend to join us and I will send the zoom link.

I continue to be available for coaching via phone or zoom. To read more about coaching click here or SCHEDULE A SESSION. Don't hesitate to contact me.

My clients trust me because I listen deeply, ask profound questions that open new perspectives, offer helpful tools, and share the spirit of inspiration.

Let's talk to determine if we would be a good fit for each other.

Coaching allowed me to cherish myself ... and adopt a new self-image. ... When I think back to the year I worked with Eva, what comes to mind are: breakthroughs, deep listening, paradigm shifts, joyful presence, being seen, mirroring my highest good; remembering my soul's journey; tears & laughter, sharing mother loss, creative energy.

I highly recommend Eva Ruland as a life coach.

It is amazing how in a phone call Eva can help me come back to my true self. She is really good at it.
