About Victoria Lagerström
My name is Victoria Lagerström and I founded Soul Garden Companion in 2014. I was pregnant with my son at the time and feeling very blessed. The creative process was playful and seemingly effortless. I knew I was onto something special and that I was truly following my heart with this work.
The name Soul Garden Companion was inspired by a long standing passion to guide people to connect with their soul path and unique gifts. We are souls having a physical experience.
A bit of my story
My journey began in 1972 in Stockholm, Sweden. It became clear early on that I was very passionate about music and spirituality. I spent most of my time singing or hovering over self-help books.
At age 15, I lost my mother and my grandmother due to cancer. These tragic events marked the beginning of many years of focusing outside of myself and self-destructing.
I first awoke to a more soulful journey at age 30. A life threatening illness became a catalyst for a powerful vision and a deepening awareness of my unique gifts. I realized that I had strayed from my joyful, creative self - and so began the journey home to my soul.
With this powerful transformation came the recording of my first CD. As I heeded the call from my instinctive self, serendipitous events started to occur. I soon met with my husband, American singer/songwriter, Dave Tate. We got together in the red rock desert of Southern Utah to record a CD, fell in love, and were married in Zion National Park.
It was on this new journey of self discovery and transformation that I was introduced to Shamanism and the healing effects of the natural environment. I graduated from the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition Apprenticeship Program – Peruvian Shamanic Arts for Personal and Planetary Renewal - where I studied with respected teachers don Oscar Miro-Quesada Solevo and Bonnie Glass-Coffin Ph.D. This in-depth, cross-cultural program emphasizes personal healing as a necessary preparation for client work.
My connectedness to the earth’s healing wisdom and the feminine awakened me to my true path. I want to pass that on to others. The services I offer through Soul Garden Companion are a blend of intuitive guidance, life coaching, and energy healing to support people in creating the life they deserve.
I love guiding people to the openings that invite movement and joy back in their lives. That is what it is all about for me and there is always a door. We may not see it through the mist of our fear and doubt, but it is there.
Do you have a sense that within there is something more of you yet to be?
There comes a time when we are suddenly aware of our unique existence and must find a way home to our soul. We begin to care how our lives turn out and try to find ways to engage in more meaningful activities, that benefit us as well as our communities. This following our longing, our deepest truth and wisdom, leads us away from the mindless busyness and the treadmill existence that is a reality for so many. It is vital to the continuation of life as we know it on the planet.
I will assist you in discovering and honoring the voice of your soul and welcoming its full expression into the world.
