30-day Virtual Guided Solstice Renewal Retreat with Laura Gates

Join me for the 2018 December Winter Solstice as we enter the season with intentionality, taking time out to consciously embrace the holiday season.

This is a series of virtual online classes and a secret Facebook group for ongoing support.

  • Take time out to reflect, integrate and harness 2018

  • Experiment new ways of being during the holidays

  • Tap intuitive insights and creative inspiration for 2019

Because, we all have...

  • A purpose, a calling

  • Unique gifts and talents to share

  • A unique voice to be expressed and offered

My gift is helping you identify who it is you’re here to be, what it is you’re here to do, and help remove obstacles (perceived or real) so you can get on with the adventure of living your soul’s purpose.


Clarity. Focus. Insight. Expression of your soul's purpose. Finding meaning and purpose in your work and impact in the world.


I'm an executive leadership coach, I also work with teams to get aligned, build trust and tackle hard core business challenges.

and some call me the Empress of Upheaval.

I frankly should come with a warning label, because when people work with me CHANGE HAPPENS. I’m in the business of spectacular shake-ups — the kind that stir up dust + gold, fear + power – and unearth your soul’s purpose.

I’ve spent my entire life exploring the arc of human potential — the journey of the soul — starting with my own. I’ve found practical guidance in many worlds, through many teachings – From Q'uero Shamans in Machu Picchu to a High Priestess in Bali, a Mayan healer in Tulum and the wise barista at my neighborhood Starbucks– I integrate ALL of my experience to deliver a unique combination of hard-won business grit (working on Wall Street, mentor to to start-up CEO's, astronauts, nuclear physicists, and Silicon Valley tech gurus) with real life experience and a scarily accurate sixth-sense of knowing what works. 

If you’re ready to uncover your soul’s purpose — and actually LIVE it, instead of shrinking into a pint-sized destiny that simply doesn’t fit — let’s do this.

"Warning: if you work with Laura, be prepared for transformation! She will get to your core, understand you better than you understand yourself, and guide you subtly yet powerfully to unleash your inner strength and direct you toward purpose. Within a few months of working with Laura, I was promoted to the C suite-level, selected and gave a Tedx talk, and became a leader in my field. I redirected my energy to bring my soul to my life and work. I became fearless in many ways, improved my relationships, and found my purpose within myself. Laura is an intuitive guide who helped release and direct my inner fire to a life of more personal and professional success, fulfillment and purpose. Laura changed my life." - Chief Data Officer, Banking Industry

"Laura has been my coach for over 10 years and I would not have been nearly as effective without her. From early childhood, I’ve always felt that some great destiny awaited, and Laura is helping me find it. She made me appreciate the importance of being “awake” in life, rather than sleepwalking with the beliefs handed down from the past, and to express whatever wisdom I gained in ways that can do the most good. She has called on me to answer my deepest calling.” — Bob S. - Former Shell EVP

"Laura Gates is a true healer. I'm blessed to have crossed paths with her. Her knowledge, experience and intuitive ability gracefully combined to guide me through some very deep-seated blocks that were hindering progress." — Victoria P. Business Consultant/Entrepreneur

"Laura has an amazing ability to see with clarity what in the moment you can’t quite label or define for yourself. It’s this uncanny “knowing” that she brings to a coaching relationship and uses to help you find the response that’s right for you. Whether struggling with a work situation – or what to do with the rest of your life, Laura acts as a true partner in unraveling what’s truly important and in helping you shape your most authentic path forward.” —Kim C., EVP Energy Industry

"Laura Gates is an incredible executive coach and gifted spiritual healer. With two decades of experience working with top leaders on a GLOBAL scale she brings insight and clarity to the messiest of conversations in order to get organizations back on track towards their goals. On a personal level, her power as a spiritual healer has literally changed the course of my life- for the better! She has supported me to clearly see the vision of my life and empowered me to own my truth (which has set me free). Laura invites individuals and organizations to sweep away what is no longer needed in order to focus on what wants to emerge.” — Charlene Wilson, Executive Coach and Organizational Consultant

"Laura is an amazing talent and intuitive coach. She seems to have a sixth sense of knowing what to say at just the right time. Working with Laura dramatically changed my professional and personal life for the better. She helped me recognize my inherent ability to create and embrace positive change in my life. Through our work together, I am now able to look inside to find my authenticity and appreciate it. I consider myself fortunate to know and work with Laura.” — Rick W., CEO
