Live a fuller life, joyfully, with love.
Welcome to Soulful Living!I’m so pleased that your soulful journey has brought you here! My name is Valerie Rickel, and I’m the founder, creator and soul of SoulfulLiving.com, an inspirational website devoted to personal growth, spiritual development, self help, and self improvement.
In September 1999, I was grieving the loss of my father and had been searching the internet for comfort and healing, but there were very few resources available online at the time. I felt a deep knowing in my heart that I was being “called” to create a website that would offer healing and inspiration to people around the globe.
So, I set about pouring my love and grief into this purposeful life project, and at the stroke of midnight on January 1, 2000, I launched SoulfulLiving.com in memory of my father and in honor of our new millennium. Creating SoulfulLiving.com is my soulful life purpose, and it has been one of the most meaningful, joyous, and wondrous experiences of my lifetime. I know, without a doubt, that sharing my passion and love for living a soulful life is why I was put here on this earth.
I hope you’ll make yourself at home while you explore our website’s many pages and resources. Sit back, pour a cup of tea, and be inspired… There’s so much to see and experience! You’ll find a collection of thousands of archived articles from our best-selling authors and experts who have contributed their wisdom to SoulfulLiving.com over the past 21 years.
Our “Soul Retreat” Gift Pack offers 8 FREE inspirational goodies from our awesome authors, including ebooks, ecourses, audio workshops, and meditations. And, our new Inspiration Gallery will nourish your heart and soul! Plus, you will find an inspiring collection of soulful gifts, products, and tools at our online gift store, the Soulful Living Boutique.
I hope you’ll also explore my Soulful Business Coaching Program, “Dream It. Begin It.” This program offers a unique opportunity to work with me, 1:1, for a deep-dive into your heart and soul to discover your deepest soul callings, life’s purpose and Highest Good, and, then, put passion, purpose, and action together to manifest your soulful purpose into the world!
In January 2020, we celebrated our 20 Year Anniversary online and gathered together our alumni authors from over the past twenty years for an exciting reunion to commemorate the momentous occasion with an extra special 20th Anniversary Issue of Soulful Living!
Also new, you’ll find our Soulful Living Classroom, filled with a collection of the finest soulful courses, classes and programs available online today with some of the most renowned experts and thought leaders of our time.
I’m so happy you’re here. Enjoy!
With love and gratitude.
