Nonprofit Overview

Mission: To offer a safe and healing place where people are empowered to live with joy and personal freedom, rekindle a loving relationship with their true spirit, and foster an attitude of kindness, grace and service to others.

Results: Hundreds of men and women have participated in Soltura’s life-changing workshops, reconnecting with the joy of being free to be themselves, enriching their relationships with family and friends, and learning to be of service to others in everyday pursuits.

Target demographics: Soltura workshop participants include individuals of all ages looking for a different way to experience their lives or seeking a new understanding of their inner self. Programs are geared to anyone who has the desire to change their personal perspective and experience personal freedom. While the motivations to participate in the workshop trilogy are varied and unique to each participant, some reasons may include: —Navigating one of life’s transitions following a loss of a parent, a child, a marriage, a job or other form of emptiness; —Understanding self-defeating behaviors; -- Improving one’s relationship with self, family and friends; —Difficulty juggling life’s daily stresses that challenge quality of life; —Moving beyond a co-dependent relationship with a spouse or partner who is struggling with alcohol abuse; —Gaining perspective on compulsive or addictive behaviors. Participants are asked to complete a brief health history questionnaire during the registration process to ensure that they are sufficiently fit both physically and emotionally to complete the workshops.

Geographic areas served: United States, Canada

Programs: Utilizing the principles of experiential education and attitudinal healing, Soltura workshops are designed using parables in which hidden truths and life lessons are cleverly disguised within simple stories. For men and adolescent boys we offer a program series based on The Knight in Rusty Armor, a book by Robert Fisher. Women and adolescent girls take their journey down the Yellow Brick Road in a series of workshops based on the well-known story, The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. These programs offer a combination of educational and experiential exercises offered in group, individual, and community settings – utilizing music, art, drama, humor, writing, and guided imagery techniques – to create a dynamic and personally enriching experience. The series of personal growth workshops facilitates awareness of: -- Value of slowing down, -- Choice between conflict and peace of mind, -- How inner battles complicate life, -- Influence of fears and doubts, -- Using your authentic voice, -- Personal beliefs, judgments and conviction, -- Honoring yourself through honoring others, -- Freedom in taking responsibility for yourself.

Soltura is magic. Pure magic. It is an experience that every person needs to undergo at some point in their life. My experience is one that I remember every day of my life and has enriched me in ways that I cannot hope to even explain. Because of Soltura, I am fully aware of my intrinsic value as a human being and the highest potential that everyone has in them to make the world a better place. Because of Soltura, I am in love with life and all that it has to offer. This five day experience has taught me more about life and myself than any school or college could ever hope to teach. Recently, my boyfriend did a Soltura workshop and there are simply no words to describe how it feels to see someone that you love understand themselves and others. Honestly, words escape me when it comes to Soltura because three months later, I am still in awe. All I can say is thank you to Carole and all the other Soltura facilitators. This has been such a gift.
