I invite you to spend a weekend on the beach with me for an individualized Soultrip! The Lido Beach Resort is located on Florida's gulf coast offering us breathtaking sunrises and sunsets with white sand leading us to the crystal blue ocean. The resort is quaint and cozy with a staff that embodies, "Southern Hospitality." You select and book your own room as well as dining options according to your travel budget. There are delicious dining options both at the resort as well as in St.  Armands Circle which is a mile away. The Resort offers complimentary transportation to St. Armands Circle which also offers retail therapy.  Lido Beach is near Sarasota, Florida which has wonderful nature parks providing you with a front row seat to the local wildlife,(including beautiful birds), aquariums, diverse dining, as well as arts and entertainment venues. There is also a trolley service that can be utilized on the island and in the surrounding downtown Sarasota area. 

Individual Soultrip Questions
  • Wait, Veraunda I have questions...What if I would prefer to share this experience with a friend, co-worker or family member?
    • That is absolutely possible!
    • The majority of the life-coaching hours would be tailored to conversations with both of you. However, I will also schedule individual time with each of you within the 12 hours coaching hours at the beach.
    • The price remains the same for the Soultrip Life Coaching weekend. However, instead of a 1.5 hour pre-and post-session, each individual will have one 45-minute session before and after the Soultrip.
      • If both of you would prefer to have the 1.5 hour pre-and post sessions there will be a small additional fee for the additional time billed separately to both individuals.  
    • What should I pack for the Soultrip?
      • Comfortable beach clothes and shoes. I do encourage clients to pack one nice dress or outfit in case you/we decide to go to a nice restaurant for dinner. Don't forget your sunscreens, hats, bathing suit, flip flops and sunglasses. 
    • If I am flying, what is the closest airport ?
      • Sarasota Bradenton International Airport. It is an approximately 20-minute drive or Uber to the resort. 
      • If you fly into Orlando International Airport, the drive is approximately a two-and-a-half-hour drive. 
    • How do you determine how we are going to spend our time together?
      • That is easy.  I will send you a questionnaire that helps me plan our time together based on what you enjoy.
      • Please remember, the Soultrip is about YOU, so there is time for you to relax, renew or explore.
      • We will finalize our agenda in our pre-coaching session. 
    • Are payment plans available?
      • Yes, they sure are, we can arrange your payment plan during our complimentary 30 minute discovery conversation. 
      • Final payments must be made at least 30 days PRIOR to the weekend at the beach.

Girlfriends Soultrip

Once a year a group of professional women explore different parts of the United States or countries around the world while engaging in empowerment sessions. This trip provides us the opportunity to re-evaluate, reimagine, recreate, renew & relax as powerful women who find strength in a like minded positive community.

We find peace in nature! This was our view in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

 This was a whole adventure coming back from the famous Nantucket  island, which tested our faith and reminded us to be flexible!

Frequently asked questions about our Girlfriend Soul Trips:
1) Is the Soultrip a tour or a conference?
Neither, it is not a tour or a conference. We usually have two empowerment sessions and some optional group activities to enjoy the city we are visiting. My vision for this event was to create a time and place where women could do as much or as little as they like based on their individual interests.

2) Is the registration fee refundable?
No, once you register, the deposit and balance of the registration fee are not refundable because we use the money to pay for the various administrative costs associated with the trip.

3) Who attends the Soultrip?
Friends, sisters, mother/daughters, cousins, and co-workers. We even have some women who attend solo just for rest and relaxation! We are professional women ranging in age from late 20's to 70's. Our girlfriends come from all over the United States. This is a small group of women who enjoy mixing empowerment sessions with rejuvenating themselves.

4) Is this a networking group?
Kind of, I leave it up to the ladies to decide how they want to connect with the other ladies on the trip. The purpose of this trip is to connect with someone close to you to enjoy each other's company and rejuvenate from your day to day routine. For some women, this means just sitting by a pool and reading a book, for others it means a trip to the spa or shopping. I don't define the trip for the ladies...we kind of let it flow naturally with a few scheduled times for us all to get together.

5) How often is the Soultrip and what time of year do you travel?
The Soultrip is once a year normally in October. However, depending on our destination, we adjust the amount of days we are traveling and choose the best time of year to visit that location.

6) Is everything scheduled for us?
No, I don't schedule everything for you. This trip is designed for YOU to enjoy the city based on your interests. Some ladies like art museums, others like nature or theme parks. You and your girlfriend do your home work to decide how you would like to spend your time together in our host city. I schedule some general activities that are optional for the group to enjoy. I send out an activity form for you to choose the activities that you are interested in attending with the group.

7) Is everything included in the registration fee?
No, the registration fee includes the administration costs of the Soultrip. Because not everyone joins us for each activity, we provide the costs of various activities in email updates as we approach the trip. Often you can pay these fees as we enter the various activities.

8) What about meals?
Usually we negotiate breakfast to be include with either our administration costs or hotel rate. But we want you to be able to eat within your budget and taste. Some women treat themselves to steaks and seafood, while others eat salads and fruit. Again, this is a trip that you should be able to treat yourself to what you enjoy! I provide you that freedom throughout the trip.

9) Is the Soultrip in the same place each year?
No, my vision is to travel this country and the world. We have held Soul trips in Orlando, Florida, San Antonio, Texas, Montego Bay, Jamaica, Paris, France, San Diego, California, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, St. Augustine, Florida, and Tokyo, Japan. 
I look forward to seeing you on a future Soul Trip!
