unfolding into JOY


"I am so pleased and happy with my progress, I'm surprised at how far I've come.  I really didn't have hope that I would see much change but I have.  Seeing Eva is the best thing that I've done for myself.  Her style and methods have been amazing for me and I look forward to the future thanks to her help. Thank you so much, Eva!"

SMW, Oakland, after 3months of coaching

Eva really tuned into the important themes, major underlying issues, and continued to unravel them from meeting to meeting until we had resolved them or discussed in full detail. Great!

I love how Eva is a non-judgemental and objective guide to helping you explore and reveal your true desires and needs.

Heather Gahan, eco business owner, Berkeley

Working with Eva as a coach is a great way to hone in on what you really want in life and visualize your future. Rather than just generalize you visualize and realize.

Great job on helping us visualize our dreams in more detail and realize what is at the root of those dreams.

Eva has been my coach for one and a half years. She has helped (and continues to help) me to become clear and see what I really want and need in my life.

With Eva as my coach I have manifested more than I ever expected:

  • Coaching helped me to realize how much nature means to me. I used to live in the city. Today I live on a big ranch and have horses, goats and a great garden.
  • My 8 year old unsatisfying relationship transformed into a true partnership and a marriage.
  • I redefined my attitude toward my daughter, and as a result, now have a much closer and enjoyable relationship with her.

All these transformations happened within one year of coaching.

I continue my coaching sessions as a mental-emotional-spiritual practice. They ground me and remind me of what really matters.

I whole-heartedly recommend Eva Ruland as a life coach.

"Eva is able to create a space that allows me to get back to who I am."

I started with SoulCollage one year ago and was fascinated with it. I noticed that it created a pathway for me to access information which had previously been inaccessible. I had been feeling emotionally stuck and was struggling with depression and I found that a transformation from unknowing to knowing was beginning. When I added coaching with Eva, we worked on surrendering to the present and outlining steps to take to achieve personal growth. Within a few months, I experienced a shift. Eva uses some powerful tools. Immediate results were apparent and 9 months later, the effects are still with me. I feel a freedom to experience all of my emotions and communicate my needs and wants effectively with loved ones. I was able to open my heart to give and receive love.  Working with Eva changed my life. I loved working with her and continue to come to her workshops to be a part of a community of people who are also lifelong explorers of what it means to be a fully embodied and energized person in this world.

I highly recommend this work. It will change your life!

Coaching allowed me to cherish myself as an artist. It led me to adopt a new self-image: that of an accomplished artist whose voice is heard, and a valued consultant.

When I think back to the year I worked with Eva, what comes to mind are: breakthroughs, deep listening, paradigm shifts, joyful presence, being seen, mirroring my highest good; remembering my soul's journey; tears & laughter, sharing mother loss, creative energy.

I highly recommend Eva Ruland as a life coach.

Coaching with Eva gives me new perspectives and helps me to know  myself better. My dreams become clear and I learn to go after them. I  face all kinds of stresses in my life; the coaching makes me strong  and gives me tools to address the stress. Through the coaching I am  growing into my strength.

Often I drive myself crazy in the creative process when it comes to my own promotions. This time, I felt I needed some help. I booked several coaching session with Eva, to specifically work on my new business promotions.

Eva is very skillful at catching inaccuracies and turning them into positives. She helps me keep on target and accountable to my weekly goals. I have made faster progress with more focus than working on it by myself.

Eva has a very creative eye when it comes to design. Being a designer myself I find her coaching service a great support.

— Alan Cash, graphic designer

I went to Eva for coaching on how to develop a more positive attitude toward entering a new stage in life: "old age".  Her guidance helped me find ways to be grateful for the many things in my life, to count my blessings, and to confront my age with a sense of appreciation and peace.  She showed much empathy for the feelings I was having and offered practical advice on ways to eliminate negative feelings in exchange for positive ones.  Eva is well qualified to coach people who find themselves in a difficult transition later in life.  I recommend her highly.
