M. Elliot

"Gina Vance is in a league all her own. Her bubbly, yet down to earth, completely relatable personality and energy was a gift to me at a time when I needed direction and connection. I found Gina at Soulstice Mind + Body Spa in Sausalito where she holds group sessions ("Mind Body Journeys"). Right away, I knew I had found something incredibly special. The Somatic Mindful Guided Imagery method she's spent years perfecting is unique, direct, and cultivates profound change. Her combination of meditation, hypnotherapy, guided imagery, etc. is relaxing yet wildly powerful. I know she has led many clients to find the healing within themselves, and while this is fantastic, her true gift is that she is a teacher. She will teach you how to continuously heal yourself. There's no greater gift! I found Gina at an exhausting time in my life. She helped me heal, she educated me about trauma and meditation and she empowered me to handle my own issues. I got all of this through her group classes - imagine what she's capable of one-on-one! She is a truly diligent, empathetic, special person. I feel lucky to know her."

M. Elliott, SAUSALITO, CA



Karen Palamos


"The day long workshop I attended with Gina reminded me of the incredible inner resources within me.  Gina helps to tap those resources and gives guidance on how to make the most of what arises.  Her feet are planted firmly on the ground, and she possesses a warm and hearty sense of humor.  She has a valuable gift and is willing to share it!"

Karen Palamos, LMFT, SAN FRANCISCO, CA





Alana Nur

"It's almost impossible to find the words to describe what an amazing person, healer, and teacher Gina is. I've been going to her meditation classes weekly for about six months and have missed a total of 2 classes out of that time- for someone who has trouble keeping the same routine for 2 days, that should tell you something. Gina's classes are transformative and rejuvenating, helping you connect with parts of yourself you didn't know you had lost touch with. What I love is that her classes are for everyone-- from people who think meditation is not for them to experienced meditators. It's a different style but so utterly simple you can do it from day one. She always emphasizes connection to your body and your inner wisdom-- day one you will walk away with new tools, helpful in whatever life situations you're up against. I really can't recommend Gina's classes enough. If you have any trauma, if you struggle with anxiety, depression or any chronic illnesses, you HAVE to come. I feel blessed, honored, and grateful more than I will ever be able to express for the healing that Gina's innate wisdom, skill and leadership has brought into my life."

Alana Nur, MHS, HEALTHCARE POLICY CONSULTANT, SAUSALITO, CA




"Very quickly Gina establishes a safe container for the group.  Each journey I’ve done, I’ve left feeling recharged, energized, integrated, and the kind of qualities I get from a very long practice meditation. It accelerates my own inner work through the experience of seeing other people’s inner process simultaneously to mine."

Karen Saura, MINDFUL RHYTHMS TRAUMA INFORMED EDUCATION, FAIRFAX, CA



Carol Hoang


"Gina teaches incredible skills to connect your mind and body. I increased my self awareness and was able to implement her techniques in work and life situations. She makes meditation easy and effective."

One of the top Mind-Body practitioners in the world, Gina is the consummate professional - gifted, giving, dedicated. Her work is truly transformational, and any individual, group or company desiring growth and change will deeply benefit by her work and expertise."

Lisa Galeazzi

"Gina's Mind Body Skills seminar is one of the most profound and beneficial experiences that I've had as a professional and as an individual. The techniques that she teaches are simple, highly effective, and applicable for personal and professional use. Working with Gina has allowed me to add a whole new skill set to my professional repertoire while increasing my ability to address and resolve personal challenges. She is a true master. Thank you Gina."

Minna Sivola

 

I love Gina's class. She guides us gently to find inner wisdom in places that are unexpected and often hard to reach. Give it a try and be amazed!

Minna Sivola, CERTIFIED SOUND PRACTITIONER, OAKLAND, CA





“I love to bring Gina into my classrooms as a resource. The healing that comes from being comfortable with these more subconscious influences is so profound. By people doing this group experience together, they’re generating a group language around how to access archetypal information.”

Karen Saura, MINDFUL RHYTHMS TRAUMA INFORMED EDUCATION, FAIRFAX, CA





Group

"I am forever grateful to you for the miracles that occurred in my life during and especially after our group sessions ended. The benefits manifested tenfold after our group meetings ended as I continued using and strengthening the skills you taught me.  It's been a privilege to get to know you and share our sacred truths. Please keep doing what you are doing, because we need more light and love and miracles in our world."

THE IDEA OF sitting still and silent, clearing the mind of thoughts, might send some active Marinites — especially those of us who carry running shoes in our car and a running “to-do” list in our heads — into a small panic attack. But settle into one of the comfy floor seats for Gina Vance’s “Guided Journey” meditation class at Soulstice Mind and Body Spa in Sausalito, and the worries drift away; follow her clear, comforting instructions and somewhere along the way you’ll realize that not only are you meditating, but — shocker! — you are enjoying it.

Kirsten Jones Neff, MARIN MAGAZINE, FEBRUARY 2019 ISSUE





“These tools are so profound, they get right to the heart of what is really happening. If you're a therapist, this is such an incredibly unique technique.  As a psychotherapist … I would be surprised if there was anyone with which these tools did not work because they're so individualized and address the person so directly. ”

Leila Samrad, NEW PERSPECTIVES CENTER FOR COUNSELING, SAN FRANCISCO, CA




Gunnar Emory


"Gina is a caring facilitator and great beacon of light for this Earth. Her work has helped me reconnect to my body and relight the fire of my personal passions. Anyone who works with her can feel her overwhelming enthusiasm for life and the betterment of it; both personally and collectively."

Gunnar Emery, YOGA THERAPIST, FOUNDER OF FLUID WELLBEING, MILL VALLEY, CA






"A wonderful style of meditation, for beginners - and experts are surprised at how deep they go and what wonderful rich adventures they have. A way of meditating that makes it very easy to experience a direct connection to your intuition, your inspiration, and greater wellbeing. "
