Patricia has always been fascinated by the discovery of the Soul and she has spent a lifetime passing her message on to students and seekers all over the world.
Patricia's calling as counselor, mentor and soul friend began when she was 9 years old, living in a small midwestern town. Friends and neighbors would come by her house and often offer her a nickel (which was a lot of money at that time) for her advice and counsel. So we could say that she's come by her gifts naturally, almost innately.
Given her passion for how people connect, Patricia was led to earn her Bachelor's degree in Communications and her Masters' degree in Counseling from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
After college graduation, Patricia entered a human potential training organization called Cornucopia where she spent the next 3 years teaching the methods in Ken Keyes book,
“The Handbook to Higher Consciousness.” Having the opportunity to live and work in a spiritual community added a richness to her life that had been missing. The time at Cornucopia set the foundation for actualizing soul integration for the rest of her life.
Next stop, Seattle! In Seattle Patricia opened her first private practice in counseling. As her practice expanded, she opened “The One Year Personal Mastery Training.”
She designed and taught “A Place for Givers to Receive”, and was a sought after speaker at IBM and Nordstrom's. She met her husband, David, during that time.
The next part of her journey was to move with David to Denver, Colorado. She reopened her private practice and designed and led a year long training called “Leading from the Heart"!
18 years ago, after a one year sabbatical traveling throughout the US and Canada, Patricia relocated with David and her beloved white golden retriever, Grace, to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Patricia is a hiker, consummate nature lover, and has a deep bond with animals. She has been fostering an elephant from Africa named Olare'. She is passionate about gardening and has both a yoga and swimming practice over the last 3 decades.
She offers her wisdom as a soul and relationship coach, counselor and business catalyst to a private practice of truly willing love dogs. She has an occasional opening for same both in Santa Fe and by working by phone or Skype nationally and internationally. Patricia has clients locally in Santa Fe and clients from Boston to California and Alaska, as well as in Canada and the Ukraine.
While living in Santa Fe, Patricia has received State-of-the-art coaching training. David is the business manager and accountant for Patricia's growing enterprise. They are an awesome team. Patricia also published her first book in Santa Fe, “Becoming a Love Dog”. In this book she shares how to live your life more fully, tenderly, honestly, skillfully, passionately and authentically. She is also a featured writer in Celeste Yacoboni's new book, “How Do You Pray?” (both books are available at Amazon.com.)
Whether Patricia is writing a blog, working with clients at home or abroad or designing her emerging business, her true purpose is to support seekers in Coming Home!
Patricia Flasch - New Directions
Patricia's passion now is to continue working with her current long term clients in Santa Fe and around the world in her beloved and established practice. Within her emerging business, she continues to train her protege', Pamela Thompson, as she continues to work to introduce a larger on-line presence.
She has decided to focus the next 5-10 years to leaving her legacy alongside the deep soul work she continues to do. Patricia and Pamela, her protege', share a delight in doing soul work and in creating opportunities so that willing souls can drink from the fountain of unconditional love. Patricia and Pamela didn't have children, so this is their way of leaving the world a better place. We stand for soul integration & radical self acceptance!
Meanwhile Patricia is writing intimate soul notes in the form of blogs, developing podcasts, creating CD's, books and material for You Tube. She intends to be offering virtual retreats, tele-classes, webinars and pod casts in the very near future. Pamela is dedicating herself to this work and intends to be offering private sessions in 2015. It is an exciting, soulful time for Patricia & Pamela.
Pamela Thompson has been a spiritual seeker her whole life and has found great healing and transformation through the creative process. Pamela initially found her voice, truth and power by doing theater, improv, stand up comedy and performance art. She has directed, written and co-written several plays.
Pamela moved to Santa Fe in 1991 and knew immediately that this was her home. She met her husband, Sal and was looking forward to a beautiful and unfolding life and marriage when Sal was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer. Shortly after, his mother, Anna, was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease. This altered Pamela’s idea of what her life and path would be in unimaginable ways. After their passing Pamela felt muted and alone. She again used the creative process to transform her experience and grief by founding The Life Monologue Project, a non-profit organization that empowered people with cancer or HIV/AIDS to tell their story, to speak their truth. Pamela conducted writing and performance workshops across the country that deeply explored the life choices and changes one is confronted with when facing a diagnosis of cancer, HIV/AIDS, etc. At it’s completion, participants crafted monologues and were provided a supportive platform to say “the most important thing they needed to say at that time in their lives” in front of hundreds of people. Pamela saw these “performances” as a communion that their community witnessed. Pamela’s work has been featured in Rosie Magazine, Spirituality & Health and the CBS Early Show. Her book, The Cancer Monologue Project (MacAdam/Cage) was created from these work- shops. “O” Oprah’s Magazine applauded Pamela’s work calling it “a necessity and a gift”.
Pamela Thompson - New Directions:
During the last five years Pamela has concentrated on her own healing work, focusing on issues of grief, survivor’s guilt, faith, forgiveness and self-love. Through this journey Pamela was inspired and lead to Patricia Flasch, her mentor, and has been in-training and practicing as a Life Coach and a Leading From the Hearts Soul Coach. Pamela’s intention is to bring forth Patricia’s wisdom and teachings, blending them with her own rich experiences, to deeply and soulfully work with clients.
