I wrote my dreams down:
To live in harmony with the cycles of the sun and the moon. Every day. For love and compassion towards myself and others to be my habitual response. For beauty to flow easily and steadily from my heart. To create, build and grow a prosperous and loving business where I honour my spirit and guide others to find connection, mystery and joy in their lives. To live in a quiet and inspiring place where I grow Echinacea outside and bake within. A house full of love, friends and community.
Then I asked myself how might that look?
Simple life. Simple joys. Daily easy ritual. Harmony. True forgiveness. Beautiful sacred community. A safe haven. Time for quite reflection and for just being in nature. Feelings easily felt and moved through. Trust, clarity, direction. Cups of tea. Exhaling into wonder.
And then, well, it got hard.
I remember picking a fight over the dishes the first day I led a women’s circle. I’ve been scared and torn everything down more than once. I’ve run away from my calling while looking from the outside wishing I could do what I saw other people doing. Wondered if I even could. Cared way too much about what other people thought of me. Tried to fit myself into box after unforgiving box. Didn’t want to step on toes or shine too brightly. Didn’t want to be seen at all. So I shut down, shut off, lived in the past. You name it.
I found an inner strength that was bigger than the fear
I connected back to my voice, the land, and the Goddess. I nurtured myself with self-compassion and patience. I grounded in myself and touched the earth. Again and again. I choose to be present and trust myself. I go to the pain, do what scares me, and take ownership of my life.
And some days it’s still really hard. It’s not like the challenges stop. It’s just you get more resilient. When you begin to make friends with yourself, and find other soul friends, everything starts to change.
Let’s find a quiet green place to sit and dream together.
“In everyone’s life, there is a great need for an anam cara, a soul friend.
In this love, you are understood as you are without mask or pretension.
The superficial and functional lies and half-truths of social acquaintance fall away,
you can be as you really are.” –John O’Donohue
Anam Cara: Spiritual Mentorship is a place for you to receive soul support as you bring your gifts to the world and travel the spiritual path. We take a journey full of loving-kindness and compassion right into the heart of your dreams and the stuck places. You are welcome here!
We check-in and talk about whatever is asking to come forward in your life. We focus on your spiritual path and may also talk about approaching your life or business in a spirit-led way.
I create sacred space during our sessions and provide energetic and email support after our sessions.
We meet in a virtual meeting room where deep connection can take place. The first session is 90 minutes and subsequent sessions are 75 minutes. The spiritual mentorship is a 3 month supportive process where, after our initial session, we meet twice a month and check-in via email once a week.
The kettle’s on. The sage is lit

Hi, I’m Vanessa Sage, PhD, and I’ve published scholarly articles on Goddess pilgrimage and Paganism, trained as a coach, taught meditation classes, written a book of poetry, led four cycles of women in my Priestess training program, and am currently working on a book and publishing a collaborative oracle deck!
My approach to spirituality is very open and full of reverence. I follow a women’s centred, earth path and have a Buddhist background. I don’t ever define what the divine is for you. I believe in basic goodness, and my approach is to witness your inner divinity, in whatever way you define that.
“Vanessa is a beautiful, inspiring and talented mentor and I feel incredibly lucky to have her as my guide. The way she mirrors people is so grounding and valuable – I really think her support can help you reach the next level on your spiritual journey with more confidence, ease and compassion for yourself. Just making the commitment to show up for yourself in this way is totally magical!” -Sarah Magdalena Love Daydreaming Wolves and Creative Coaching and Web Design
“I wasn’t sure about the whole idea of “coaching.” I have been hesitant as I didn’t really know what to expect and what to ask, but Vanessa Sage is truly amazing. I do not share those words lightly. She is honest, effective, has an amazing toolbox to work with you and your specific journey. If you have ever thought to yourself about utilizing a coach, Vanessa is the one. She is insightful, proactive, empathetic and has so many resources to see you through your journey. Vanessa is wonderful, eloquent and magical!” –Gabriella
I’m a guide & a fellow seeker. Spiritual mentorship is designed to help you gain clarity, peace of mind, and inner strength.
I encourage you to look within and trust yourself. You’re in the driver’s seat of your life and are completely responsible for the decisions you make. Sessions with me are empowering and full of love.
A few things to keep in mind:
I take my role as mentor very seriously. I want you to succeed and you decide what success looks like for you.
I practice strong energetic boundaries and create and close sacred space in each session.
I don’t give financial, legal or health advice in my sessions. We can talk about heart-centred marketing and building spirit-led business based on connecting your strengths and core self to people who will love what you do.
I don’t work with people under the age of 18 or for third parties.
If I’m not the right mentor for you, I’ll happily refer you to someone else.
