Personal Growth Journeys






Patrice Villastrigo is best known for her positive outlook, and for sharing her loving heart.  She attended nursing school and holds degrees in Psychology, Education and Counseling.  Currently, she has a counseling office and healing center at an historic estate known as The Jackson Ranch (#JacksonRanch,  where she and others facilitate whole health seminars, yoga, tai chi, and more, often in the Chakra Garden she created with Native American friends. 

Patrice spent many years working with Toltec Master, don Miguel Ruiz and his family, including years learning energy healing with don Miguel's mother, Sarita.  Patrice also raised her daughter under his tutelage, during which time don Miguel adopted her and presented her on stage at a conference.  Recently, Patrice spent 4 days with His Holiness, The Dalai Lama, during which she was initiated with the new Lamas.  She has facilitated Context Training – restructuring how you think, and been a student of EST and ESP development.  She has a keen sixth sense!

For 20 years, Patrice has guided groups on personal growth journeys to sacred places and energy vortexes around the world, including North, Central and South America, Mexico, Europe, Scotland, and Egypt.  She has been a student of and practiced natural healing for over 30 years.  She owns a publishing company and has penned books in a variety of subjects, from Poetry to Healing.  In 2007, she co-authored, edited and published her first healing book, and made a documentary,  on Incan and Pre-Incan Cures with Dr. Manuel Canales Morales, a naturopath based in Arequipa  with clinics all over Peru. The book is full of remedies and cures that Dr. Canales procured from papachos (village/tribal healer – not the shaman)  all across Peru for the past 30 years.  Hence the title, Papacho Remedies: Incan Healing Secrets.(Available in English and Spanish!)  This book and Patrice's other books can be found on and will be available to all  journey participants.

Sacred City of Caral-Supe:
The 5000-year-old 626-hectare archaeological site is situated on a dry desert terrace overlooking the green valley of the Supe river. It dates back to the Late Archaic Period of the Central Andes and is the oldest center of civilization in the Americas. Exceptionally well-preserved, the site is impressive in terms of its design and the complexity of its architectural, especially its monumental stone and earthen platform mounts and sunken circular courts. One of 18 urban settlements situated in the same area, Caral features complex and monumental architecture, including six large pyramidal structures. A quipu (the knot system used in Andean civilizations to record information) found on the site testifies to the development and complexity of Caral society. The city’s plan and some of its components, including pyramidal structures and residence of the elite, show clear evidence of ceremonial functions, signifying a powerful religious ideology.  We will participate in an ancient ceremony in one of these structures  The Ceremony was designed to bless the warrior within. After our journey in Iquitos, we will be ready for this step towards personal empowerment, this ancient tradition

Sacred City of Pachacamac:  20 miles from Lima, it is a city of 17 pyramid structures, from 200 AD. We will release all unwanted tensions and stressors in the Templo Viejo, after which we will take in the ancient frescoes, as we appreciate the artist within.




Currently, an itinerary is being planned for a group Personal Growth Journey in Scotland. Our path will include North Scotland, on the island of Orkney, rich in Neolithic energy, history and settlements. Here we will participate in an ancient Ceremony, taking us to our roots.
This journey is inclusive of a Mindfulness Trek – where we will hike a mountain with our guide, Dr. Michael Staunton, in silence as we free all thoughts, "loose the ties that bind"…: as Walt Whitman encourages.
At the Clava Cairns, we will bury the past, disengage from old habits and negative patterns, Then walk a short distance to the Clava Stone to engage in ceremony with nature and the elements, to remind us that we are all the same, the earth, the stars, and you, made of light. You will fully experience and embrace the light within you! Witness the trajectory of your light! Here, feel your light fill you, with warmth, with love. That light is love. You are the light… You are love !
Following Ceremonies, and the Mindfulness Trek, you will be baptised as the light that you are. This is in Nairne, where we will stay for 3 nights in a lovely hotel by the sea. Here you'll have a free day to tour other areas, including Inverness.
You will have the opportunity to participate in creating natural flower essences with your enhanced bright light, in Findhorn, with Marion Lee. Buy or bring her book to sign! Also, tour the Findhorn Foundation to witness a community living in and with ongoing sustainable energy programs for over 60 years!
Visit Roslyn Chapel, where we will sit in silent prayer, focusing on taking our light, our energy, to a higher place, where we remember that we are one with the infinite, with God.
We end our journey in Edinburgh, where you will be back in the energies of the big city! Will you maintain your positive outlook and keep your light bright? Test your ability to remain focused on the light, the love, that you are! Remember to have patience, respect, and be love, with yourself, hence all within your environment.
On the final day of Sol to Soul Journeys with Doña Patrice, we'll go to Arthur's Seat and the Queen's summer palace, Holyrood. Throughout this day in the big city, I will be presenting you with gentle reminders that you are light and love.
You may wish to extend your stay in Edinburgh for 3 or more nights to tour famous places, inclusive of Castles, Palaces, Cathedrals, and other sacred sites. Also, we will be visiting other places of keen interest through-out the tour.
This tour commences in mid July, 2017. Send a message if you are truly interested in participating! Exact dates and pricing TBA!

“To seek freedom is the only driving force I know. Freedom to fly off into that infinity out there. Freedom to dissolve; to lift off; to be like the flame of a candle, which, in spite of being up against the light of a billion stars, remains intact, because it never pretended to be more than what it is: a mere candle.”  Carlos Castaneda
