Who is Donna Bond, M.A.?

At the age of 45, Donna “woke up” at the top of her game. On the outside, it all looked perfect. She was working as a marketing executive for a prestigious hotel company alongside best-in-class people, making great money, living in a beautiful home and married to an incredible guy. On the surface it all looked great.

On the inside, she was exhausted, depressed, unhappy and unfulfilled. She was out of touch with her body, her relationships, her aliveness, and the joy in her life. She made a series of courageous choices that led to her own profound personal transformation, from the inside out.

Today, Donna Bond is Soul-Centered catalyst for personal transformation holding a Master of Arts in Spiritual Psychology with an emphasis in Consciousness, Health and Healing from the University of Santa Monica.  Her philosophy is, that when we do the work individually to trust our higher self and love our human self, the ripple effect changes the world. As an author, speaker, coach, and spiritual mentor Donna’s mission is to ignite your light, empowering your original wisdom on your epic human adventure. To learn more visit

Revitalization of Your Wholeness: Activating Personal Transformation

Participants learn how to inspire change and transform their life through a five-day journey designed to provide knowledge and actionable tools to relate differently to themselves and their world. Participants walk away with a personalized vision of their highest potential and an experience of their original wisdom.

Each workshop segment is designed to build upon the previous. All offer part teaching/speaking mixed together with solo and partner processes designed to be experiential providing each participant with an experiential opportunity for transformation.

Experiencing You: Living on Purpose
You have an infinite intelligence within you that is always present, providing you original wisdom. In this experiential workshop you will identify, access, and cultivate a partnership with your Authentic Self. Understand the difference between “ego-thinking” and original wisdom that comes from your higher self. Gain a greater understanding of the higher purpose of your life and begin to ignite your authentic power within.

The Science of Creating: How Thoughts Seed Things

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking” Albert Einstein

You have between 50,000-70,000 thoughts a day. 95% of them are repetitious and 80% of those are negative. Thoughts are living breathing transmitters of energy. Notice how the quality of your thinking informs the communication link between your powers of creation and the experience you are having in your life. Begin observing and transforming your thoughts to affect positive change in your life.

The Rhythm of Stuck: Shifting Patterns of Perception
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.” Henry Ford

Identify, excavate, and shine light on old limiting patterns of perception that keep you stuck and stand between you and your highest potential. Excavate and transform limiting beliefs as a powerful step to improve the freedom and possibility in your life. Bring more awareness to the self-sabotaging belief systems subtly operating in your consciousness and reshape them to directly impact the quality of experience you’re having in life.

Reclaiming the Gift: Trusting the Illogical
What would it be like to trust your inner guidance system, harness your inner knowing and take steps towards higher direction for your best life? Empower yourself by paying more attention to the illogical and really listening to the answers within. Learn how your rational mind discards, dismisses, and distracts you from truly engaging with your intuition. Explore the different ways your personal higher guidance shows up in your life and begin to cultivate a relationship with the gift of this wisdom-filled aspect of your higher Being.

Activating Powers of Creation: Reimagining your Evolution
Anything you think or say after the words “I AM” initiates creation into action. What you reveal to the world in the statement of “I am” is backed with your personal power. It is also an activation for the infinite part of yourself. Un-do the unconscious programs that perpetuate undesirable experiences in your life. Align yourself with the empowering discovery of how “I am” can reimagine your evolution and can beautifully shape your life.

What is the private coaching opportunity with Donna Bond?

The private one to one coaching session is 90-minutes in duration. Donna will talk with you to determine what would best support your growth and the shift you want to make.
