Bonnie’s path to soul began with a spontaneous mystical experience in 2006, and she continues her quest for awakening each day with a sense of joy, freedom, and gratitude at the magic afoot in the world. She continues to live into her gift and calling by helping others find their path to soul, and to learn to do the same for others.
