My Work (with and for you)

You can feel it. You’re ready. It’s time.
It’s not quite coaching. It’s not quite counseling.
It’s something in-between, different, more…

Sacred Conversation

I serve as Guide, Companion, Confidante, Mentor, Muse, and Trusted Friend to help you find and experience the magic, mystery, and power of your story, your life, and the sacred that pulses within it. 

All that you need, all that you desire, all that you long for already dwells within you.
I promise.

Let’s unearth, reveal, and revel in it together. 

  • Experience yourself – and your life – as grounded, whole, and integrated (as opposed to disconnected, fraying-around-the-edges, and hungry for more but with no idea where to find the nourishment you long for).

  • Increasingly recognize yourself as the incredible, gorgeous, and awe-inspiring being that you are; a bearer of ancient women’s wisdom – the sacred, the feminine, the divine.

  • Walk through your days and your world profoundly aware that you are not alone; that you are connected to a vast matrilineage of women who live and breathe within you.

  • Spot and celebrate the signs and symbols that are rife within your story, just waiting to be seen and acknowledged. Like breadcrumbs leading you home. Really home

  • Listen to and trust the wise, sound, and passionate voice within that says, “You already know. You already know. You already know.”

  • Experience your story and yourself as profound and magnificent. Yes, sacred. Yes, really. 

All of this and then some is what I offer and invite; exactly what is yours to experience and live.
I promise. *

Ronna is a modern-day demigoddess. Part-soul priestess, part-tenderhearted feminist, her words are a divine benediction to all who hear them. She has an instinctive knack for prising you open with the utmost compassion — and she helped me recognize my resistance to reconciling with the beliefs impressed on me throughout my childhood. Ronna is someone I trust implicitly & she is the perfect intermediary for this type of soul work. ~ Nikki Groom, Extraordinary Writing for Extraordinary Women

Ronna is one of the wisest, wittiest, warmest women I’ve had the privilege to travel the path with. I cannot imagine a more sage, humble and curious guide for doing deep personal work and answering the question of the call. I am blessed to know her, and will forever be grateful for her company. ~ Christa*


How to know if I’m right for you:

Our work together will be incredibly rich and valuable if you want someone who:

  • will read between the lines, ask just the right questions, get under the surface, connect the dots, see the threads;

  • can challenge you and compel desired movement and growth;

  • offers lived-wisdom and learned-experience;

  • will listen and respond – in outspoken, tender, compassionate, and truth-filled ways;

  • can talk to you about your business…or your relationship(s)…or your writing…or your work…or your heart…and maybe all of the above;

  • calls you to wholeness, strength, and an ever-deepening sense of the sacred (which already, completely, and amazingly dwells within you).

Working with Ronna as my guide has been like swimming down into the dark ocean of my unconscious with a skilled and fearless diving instructor. One who’s not afraid to confront the sea monsters. She stands unflinchingly as the conduit. She’s completely fluent in the language of both the woman she’s guiding toward ultimate freedom and the beast she’s declawing. The very, scary phantom that’s been invisibly scratching at her client’s mind for years. Sacred Conversations is a remarkable experience in which to be involved. Ronna’s wisdom has been incredibly precious to me. Her advice rings in my heart for days and days after we talk. I truly can’t imagine a more compassionate and brilliant Priestess of Female Spirit than Ronna Detrick. ~ Christi Koelker

Ronna makes my relationship to my own spirituality tangible, somehow; in dialog with her I can imagine the Divine as the benevolent presence I’ve always wanted him/her to be.  Nobody in my adult life has made me reconsider my own spirituality so provocatively and, ultimately, so productively.  Because of Ronna I can feel my own faith underneath me, a hammock, a support, and I’m immensely grateful for this. ~ Lindsey Mead Russell, A Design So Vast

Why all this talk of the sacred?

First, because it’s the appropriate way to talk about you!

It’s definition incudes the following: dedicated or set apart for the service or worship of a deity (isn’t that who you truly are?); entitled to reverence and respect; and highly valuable and important. And the thesaurus lists synonyms like hallowed, divine, venerable, numinous, revered, cherished, and sacramental.

To talk of the sacred is to talk of you and your life in the way it is intended to be understood, experienced and lived: worthy, reverent, valuable, and beyond-important.

Second, because no matter your path, your journey, your beliefs, or your lack thereof, you are hungry for ways to see yourself as connected to something larger, bigger, more powerful – whether we name that god, goddess, the divine, the universe, or Love itself. You long to know that your life has meaning and significance, value and purpose; to be able to recognize and respond from the myriad of ways in which you are, in fact, a sacred, spiritual being connected to sacred, spiritual realties and truths.

The sacred matters. And your ability to see it in every aspect of what you do and who you are changes everything.

Third, because I am intoxicated and compelled by the sacred stories of women – ancient ones that I fear will be forgotten, even lost if we do not re-member them, re-imagine them, and redeem them. For too long they have been co-opted by religion, doctrine, and dogma. They long to be freed in ways that allow them to speak, to guide, to comfort, and encourage. Every day they offer this to me, but I’ve had to learn to ask, learn to listen, learn to trust. 

For you to know them, to trust them, to rely on their wisdom, ushers the sacred into your midst in ways beyond belief.

Talking to Ronna and having her feedback was like having a conversation with my soul. It was as if Ronna got inside of me and told me all the things I already knew somewhere deep inside. She manifested the voice of my inner self. I’m not sure how but she did! I guess it is a gift!  The gift of insight? Intuition? Spiritual connection? Call it what you will, Ronna is a queen, whether or not she is wearing her crown. Sarah Sturino


What’s the process like?

  • 2, 1-hour calls/month. A couture and highly-personalized experience; deeply-meaningful conversation on what you need to talk about, ask, think about, and feel your way through. One conversation at a time.

  • Each call begins with an “invocation” – a particular poem or reading I’ve chosen in advance that grounds our time together and sets the stage for the conversation that flows. 

  • We’ll talk, wander, and wonder together. I watch for symbols and patterns, for words you use and others you don’t, for the meaning inherent in everything you say; more, what you feel. And I’ll tell you what I hear, what I think, what I see, what I feel, what I long for on your behalf. Though I’m an excellent listener, I do talk – to you. I have intuitive leanings, learned perspective, and relevant wisdom that I want you to hear and have. All of this is yours – straight from my heart.

  • Each session closes with a “benediction” – another poem or reading that I’ve chosen in advance (which is, frankly-humbly-amazingly, always beyond-profound as perfect “fit” for what we’ve discussed in the hour previous. I don’t know how this happens, but because it always does, I have come to expect it. Sacred stuff, to be sure).

  • Within a few hours of each call, you receive an email that includes the full text of both the invocation and benediction for further reflection during the days ahead. In addition, it will include super-practical and meaningful ways to implement/practice all that we’ve explored together; grounded, relevant journaling exercises, meditation prompts, and thought-provoking questions that will guide, strengthen, and encourage.

  • And in-between our bi-weekly calls, you have unlimited email access to me. Thoughts that crop up. Paintings you’ve created wildly in the middle of the night. Questions that haunt. Recounting of conversations. Dreams. And movement forward. Any and all of it is welcome. I do respond – gladly.

If I could, I would allay your every fear and fill you up with overflowing confidence to step into these deep, rich, and yes, sacred conversations. I would speak some kind of prayer over you that would calm your every nerve and take away your every objection. I don’t say this for my sake; I say it for yours. Truly, this is life-changing, heart-changing, world-changing conversation because it’s about your life, your heart, your world. Sacred ground. 


A disclaimer: Our conversation together (or my ability to work effectively on your behalf) does not assume or at all require a particular system of beliefs, a background in the church, any particular denominational affiliation, or a strong understanding of all things theological. It assumes that you live your life with an awareness that there is more to be learned, discovered, and understood; that there is a sacredness afoot that you long to experience more consistently; that deep, rich conversation has the potential to change everything.

Email me your questions: Of course I will respond – gratefully, quickly, and in much hope on your behalf.
