Your Soul Chicks Hosts...

Sandi Luke,CSRI  & Shannon Yonge,CSRI



Hi Beautiful Sister, Sandi here...

Through the process of my own healing journey, I discovered how doing your soul work, owning your story, and being brave out loud in a safe loving circle of sisterhood can transform and heal and woman’s heart. Soul Work + Sisterhood is what's helped saved me, and I've seen it do the same for many other women.


I was fortunate enough to come across Brene Brown’s work in my healing journey, and I got to experience a

Daring Way™ Retreat...Sis - I can tell you, it absolutely transformed the way I live, love, and show-up in my life.

Now I have a passion to share the lessons I've gathered to help lift other women so they can live big, brave, beautiful and true within their own life…whatever that looks like for them. That is why I founded Soul Chicks, and why I'm so excited to bring this life changing curriculum to other beautiful women. I believe in the power of this curriculum because I know what it has done in my own life. Beautiful Sister – I can't wait for you to experience what showing up and being lifted up can do for you! It really is life changing magnificent stuff!! I hope we meet soon.


With Big Love –


Hi I’m Shannon...


Through each hard experience I've had to walk through, even the devastating ones, I’ve learned that I can do hard things.  I’ve learned how soul work and sisterhood can heal our wounds and put our feet on a brave new path. Through my own healing journey, I've discovered a passion to help other women that are navigating the roads I've been on, by sharing my story and the lessons I've learned. I feel so honored to be in this sisterhood circle.

I've had the experience of taking Brene Brown's course by a certified Daring Way facilitator, and I'm so excited to share this transformational retreat with you!

Sandi and I have joined together as “Soul Chicks” to bring you beautiful soul restoring retreats and classes. 

Remember, you are loved, worthy of feeling joy & living a beautiful life. No matter what season you are in, we simply cannot wait to meet you.
