Laurel Vespi is the creative energy behind stone circle coaching. Known for her bold, funky and creative style, Laurel partners with people who are really ready to make something different happen in their lives. Not just talk about it, but actually create change.
Laurel believes life is meant to be a luscious, fulfilling and successful experience. If it’s not, then something needs to change. Too often we are held hostage by the belief that we really can’t have what we want and that life is more work than play. The life we imagine seems somewhat out of reach.
It is indeed possible to create the outcomes we desire, both personally and professionally. True life balance exists when we begin to love the chaos around us and see it as a powerful ally. Life balance happens when we begin to focus on what matters. Laurel’s sincerest desire is for people to stop sleepwalking and instead find success at living a fully awakened life.

She knows from her own personal story that we can make the changes we want so that we can align ourselves with our truest life paths.
