Deepening into Life An online gym for the Soul Dive in Supporting people to develop and/or strengthen the spiritual foundations for their life.

With numerous events, workshops and 1:1s throughout the year to work with in your own time and at your own pace....


My name is Donna Lancaster and thank you for your interest in my online gym for the Soul.

It is my belief that so many people are struggling with a form of ‘Soul sickness’, whereby they are literally sick and tired of the shallow, addictive and meaningless dimensions to modern living and instead are yearning to develop a deeper, slower and more meaningful (re)connection with their own Soul.

Many people have rejected traditional forms of religion and god but in doing so have also inadvertently lost connection with their spiritual life – the rituals, practices, values, community and spiritual teachings required to live a wholehearted, joyful and peace filled life.

With the events, workshops and 1:1s it is my intention to offer an alternative approach to a life of radical Faith and the fundamentals for living your life, rooted in grounded spirituality. I’ve described it playfully as ‘an online gym for the Soul’ because just like with any gym when we start out, we need guidance, support and consistent practices to build and sustain our Spiritual muscles.

So if you’re curious about what’s on offer here, I invite you to explore this website and if you find it calls to you, then I hope that you will trust that calling and joining us to begin your inner ‘work out’.
