Hello, nice to meet you. I am Rita Alterio, the founder of Soaring Spirit Wellness.
I appreciate you stopping by. Did it take you awhile to get here? Oh, you’re wondering about me? It has taken me a lifetime.
I spent most of my life behind a desk, working online with websites or marketing. So how does a technical person end up in wellness and spiritual work?
I was always meant to be here. I just spent a lot of time avoiding the truth of who I was.
Searching was a big part of my journey. Perhaps you know what I mean? I went to a lot of different places and workshops and events, not really knowing what I was looking for yet knowing I had not found it yet.
Then one day that all changed.
I had a spiritual experience in a workshop. It was so powerful, I could not ignore it. Ever since that moment, I have been walking towards a new life of including wellness and spiritual work.
Where does the name Soaring Spirit Wellness come from?
The name has a special meaning to me.
I was in a Heart Resonance energy healing workshop, and the instructor was leading us through a meditation.
Imagine a room that is full of peace and light. A room that feels so very good to walk into and to sit among others of like mind.
I was there in that room, in a state of deep meditation, and suddenly an eagle appeared in my mind’s eye. It soared above the earth, giving me a broad perspective of my human life down below.
That meditation stayed with me for days. That eagle was a soaring spirit that symbolized wellness in a very deep, spiritual way.
