Soul to Soul Conversation Series

Soul to Soul Conversation Series continues…

Dr. Rita Shuford

Anyone interested in exploring the Truth of who and what we really are and the creative life we love within via Divine Mind, Divine Consciousness and Diving Thought is encouraged to join me for this series.

Six sessions will be held at 9 am HST on Thursdays, February 8 – April 19, 2018.

February 8
February 22
March 8
March 22
April 5
April 19

Cost: $150 per person

With guidance, we will explore the consciousness of Truth that lies within us all. When we awaken to the absolute truth that our experience can only be created one way – from the inside out- we free our minds from thoughts that carry the illusion that there can be some power other than Mind, Thought, and Consciousness determining how we see, feel, and react to life in the moment. As we see this Truth, we live with more peace of mind and clarity.

Please contact me at 808.375.8747 or email to sign up or with any questions. Please note that the group size is limited!

I look forward to connecting as we live with more peace of mind and clarity.

Waking Up: Wisdom Unfolding From Within
Feb 16 @ 12:00 am – Feb 18 @ 5:00 pm

Waking Up: Wisdom Unfolding From Within

Join us for an intimate retreat in a beautiful wooded setting. There will be room for ten participants to relax and enjoy a lovely weekend together.

Facilitated by: Rita J Shuford, Ph.D & Lorie Ann Lee, LMFT

Within each of us lies the wisdom, common sense, clarity, and insight to live a happy, successful, and fulfilling life. We are all built naturally to live in the flow of life, moment-to-moment, relaxed and secure within, knowing that the answers, insights, and clarity we need for our personal and professional life will unfold from within.

This retreat is an opportunity to relax and reflect together looking within to who and what we really are. We will explore the spiritual fact that our individual experience is being created from the inside out via the intelligent power of Mind, Thought, and Consciousness. The conditions and circumstances of our lives – past, present and future – will be shown to be powerless to determine how we feel and behave. We will become free to live with more peace of mind, well-being, and common sense, as we wake up to this present moment.


The Consciousness of Truth
Aug 17 @ 5:00 pm – Aug 19 @ 4:00 pm

The Consciousness of Truth
Grace, no matter what.

A weekend immersion into the spiritual principles behind our experience of life with Rita J Shuford, Ph.D & Lorie Ann Lee, LMFT



Join Rita & Lorie Ann in Eugene, Oregon for a 3-day immersion into the spiritual principles behind and before our human experience.

This relaxing retreat in a beautiful wooded setting will bring alive the consciousness of truth within us – and help us see this is grace, no matter what circumstances arise.

Together we will go beyond the personal mind to the deeper Mind that’s behind it all; and is the essence of life coming to life through us.

We’ll reflect upon the spiritual unfolding of grace – in it’s depth and in daily life.

The initial seeing frees us from the beliefs and thoughts we have, blaming and looking to the world of form for what we are seeking. It helps us not be afraid of any experience we might be having.

What we hope is that people will walk away changed.

Grace, insight or consciousness is a living, breathing reality; it’s not something for certain people and not others; it’s a spiritual experience which occurs via insight in any moment.

This understanding really frees us to just be ourselves, live our lives and keep open.
