“I can’t recommend Trina’s work highly enough. I see it not only breaking through old unconscious patterns in individuals (in the way that my work does) but also at a collective level. And if you attend her groups, she sets the stage to foster deep and authentic connections between people. Trina is truly gifted.” — Toni Rahman, LCSW, Counselor, Therapist, Mentor, Guadalajara, MX
I just had a powerful intuitive reading with Trina Brunk. Within minutes, I was in tears because she went right to the core of my concerns and needs. I feel more focused now in what direction to head in, and I feel I have my work cut out for me too She is well worth working with! – Holly Froeschner, Boulder, CO
“ . . . The whole time I felt safe, comfortable and supported. One session gave me quite a bit of insight on my journey of healing and growth. I highly recommend working with Trina.” – Jillian Janatka, Columbia MO
“I feel like a weight has been lifted off. I feel stronger.” — Claire DuCharme, MO
“Last year Trina did 5 SoulPath sessions with me and the 5-person team at the nonprofit I manage, Renew Missouri (our mission is to transform Missouri into a leading state in renewable energy & energy efficiency by 2016).
Her sessions happened during a time of great change and growth at my nonprofit, and although it's probably impossible to scientifically prove cause and effect, I can say that during and after the SoulPath sessions, my nonprofit has raised more money than ever before, our team has gelled and employee retention is at an all- time high. We've grown from feeling like a startup company to more of a grown-up institution, and I'm sure the work we did with Trina Brunk helped springboard that transition.
Of the 5 sessions we did 2 of them as one-on-sessions with me, which helped me get clear and centered about a lot of things regarding the direction of the nonprofit. Then we did 3 sessions with my whole 5-person team, and those were pretty much individual sessions in a group setting. It was really helpful for us to take a "time-out" from our regular workflow and do the SoulPath work, and it was really helpful to do multiple sessions over a fairly close timeframe (we did our 5 sessions over the course of 6 weeks or so).
For anyone familiar with Trina's work, I'd suggest talking with her about the possibility of incorporating SoulPath into your workplace or any other team type setting. The work was very valuable to my organization, and I bet it would be for yours too. Thanks Trina!“ PJ Wilson, Columbia MO
“ I need to tell you that what I've experienced since our meeting has been absolutely profound. You are a catalyst, milady!” ~ Liz Thomas, Columbia MO
“Amazed and delighted, once again, by Trina Brunk... I have participated in three SoulPath circles and came away from each one with a new and profoundly deeper sense of myself. Each one was totally different, and each one opened a different door to my hidden self and to my resources for transformational work. I am so excited by the potential, and am thrilled to see a community beginning to form around this work. I can't wait to see where it leads. The possibilities seem endless.” ~ Tracy Barnett

“And then we can begin to see how this beautiful world is maybe not broken, and maybe neither are we.” ~ from the book
“Co-creating something of beauty with Spirit seemed to give me the bulk of what I needed to drive a wedge between me and my unhealthy empathic patterns. Putting on my songwriter’s hat, I positioned myself in a place that had no room for victim stance. Together, Spirit and I turned the flow of energy around so that I experienced Source moving through me, giving no room for other people’s unconscious distress in my inner space. And everyone seemed to feel fantastic! Wow!” ~ from the book
“Nature: Notice that you believe you don’t have a right to test out your beliefs. Me: Yes. I feel guilty and sure you’ll be mad at me if I continue to question. Nature: But that’s what we need to build this relationship. Question as long as you question. Trust when you trust. Ask me for things. See what happens.” ~ from the book
“Oppression works as long as you believe that it is possible for you, a brilliant eternal Creator Being, to be oppressed. As long as you believe that you are separate from your Source, you will be at war with yourself and with the Other. The moment you recognize the lie at the heart of this and restore your awareness that you were made perfect in every way, the truth of the Universe is restored, and you are free.” Nature, from the Book
“Me: Why is it so hard to stay grounded and real around relationships, sex and all that? Nature: You left a part of yourself back there and you’re trying to get it back. Most relationships are about trying to recover something you perceive to be missing in yourself from the other person. But it is usually so unconscious that you don’t recognize the fact until some time later, if at all. That is why people often become so entangled with mates they don’t really understand or even like. So many people just tolerate each other, but can’t seem to improve the dynamic, and either dig in and stay for the long bitter haul or leave the relationship, only to repeat the cycle somewhere else. But when you access the Oneness inside of yourself, sex becomes about so much more. It becomes an opportunity to discover something deeper, to liberate greater awareness. Your vulnerability and willingness to be open and share and love is wonderful for your partner, of course, but even more importantly it is a gift you give your own self.
