Over four immersive & intensive days we'll dig deep to uncover what makes you unique & amazing as a coach - and then connect your genius to your true soul's niche & focus for your coaching practice.

Welcome, Welcome! I'm so glad you're here.

Hi! I'm Bev Barnes, Master Coach Instructor & Soul's Calling Mentor. And I'm so happy to see you here! If you're aching to finally do what you came here to do - but you can't put all the puzzle pieces together - then this video (& my intensive retreat & mastermind) is for you.


Imagine having everything you need to bring your right soul business to life?

Creating your unique coaching business, the one that fits you perfectly, is a puzzle that can only be deciphered by living out a pattern hidden in the soul.

In Unlock Your Unique Genius, you’ll discover the puzzle pieces and finally figure out how to fit them together.

Once we’re done, you’ll have the clarity and confidence you need to create the work that has been calling you! Here’s what you need to unleash your coaching genius.....

  • A safely held space;
  • A magic process filled with fun and surprises;
  • An intuitive, wise and experienced facilitator (moi) - plus the support of Endorsed Soul's Calling Coach, Nicole Croizier;
  • A beautiful and inspiring location, and time and space to get outside;
  • An amazing group of like-hearted people who are willing to dive deep, be unflinchingly honest and act as mirrors for each-other.

In Unlock Your Unique Genius, you’ll REMEMBER your soul’s purpose and get clear on your gifts and your coaching magic. 
Then, in the Mastermind, you’ll get the support and mentoring you need to build a business around your genius & true soul's focus!


This is the perfect next-step for coaches-in-training and all meaning-driven solopreneurs looking to discover their purpose & build a business they love around their unique genius & true soul business focus.

And my in-person Intensives are the BEST way to truly see your soul-self and KNOW what you came here to do.

Unlock Your Unique Genius is also for you if:

  • You're finishing life coach training and now you need to take your next step toward a coaching business you love - THIS IS IT!
  • You don’t know what makes you unique or special, you haven’t claimed your right niche and you lack confidence because of that;
  • You're a new or experienced Life Coach who is confused, about what direction to take with your coaching business;
  • You’re transitioning from corporate-employee-mode to soul-entrepreneur-mode and you need some help and guidance;
  • You have a deeply spiritual purpose and you’re afraid to claim it;
  • You’ve been feeling alone and you're aching for deep soulful and supportive connection
  • You aren't a life coach but this program is calling you...


In this intensive workshop & retreat you'll dive deep into discovering what makes you different and unique.

You'll get clear on your life's work & discover:
1. Your unique genius which consists of your natural gifts and talents, your essence, values and passions. 

This speaks to the way you do your work as a Coach. Are you really a one-one one coach? Or are you a teacher or writer or something else? What is the most natural style for you to facilitate transformation? Maybe coaching is a side skill that you use with your passion of photography or card reading or cooking!

2. Your Core Message and Life's Purpose.

This speaks to why you do what you do. It's what motivates you. You need to connect to your "why" in order to move past doubt and resistance. Your "why" gives you back your worthiness. 

"We cannot truly believe in ourselves until we reveal to ourselves the hidden message and inner purpose of our lives."  Michael Meade.

3. Your Shadow Gifts & Unconscious Soul Messages

You have gifts that you've disowned because of your upbringing and programming.  You also have messages to be received from your soul that provide you with clear information and directions.  You'll connect to these hidden and unconscious parts of you and bring their magic into your life and work!

4. Narrow In On Your Soul's Niche

You'll discover who you were born to help and how. You'll finally have a place to start so that you can design the coaching business that you love, that fits you perfectly. 

How Does the Unlock Your Unique Genius
Retreat + Optional Mastermind Work?


Our four day live intensive workshop & retreat will take place in beautiful Pismo Beach, in the stunning Central Coast of California - March 24-28, 2019 - right before the Martha Beck Meet & Greet! Perched on an oceanfront bluff overlooking a beautiful beach, The Cottage Inn will take your breath away. This is the perfect spot to start to do the deep work to really see yourself. 

Best of all, you'll be in the company of soul-sisters (and maybe a brother) who are on a similar journey. With You'll be expertly guided and yet feel safe and inspired. You'll feel like you've finally found a place to belong and you'll start to remember who you really are, and how great it feels to be completely that! You'll help each other discover gifts, bits of genius, and threads of purpose that you might have forgotten, overlooked or pushed into the shadows. 

We create a sisterhood right from the start, and that is so valuable. This soul connection helps you to see your gifts more clearly. And your soul-sisters will reflect back to you anything that you miss - they will show you what the amazingness in you - that everybody sees.... but that you do not!


In the mastermind, you'll you'll be mentored over three months to really integrate what you learned about yourself, your niche and your business during the retreat. 

For the mastermind, you'll have calls, 3 each month and support through a private Facebook group - where you'll work through the process of building a soul-aligned business. Whether you are starting from scratch or re-inventing an existing long established business, you’ll get clear on YOU, the unique service you offer and how you offer it – even if you don’t end up having a traditional coaching practice.


When you sign up for the mastermind, you also get two private coaching sessions with me! You’ll deep dive into your own personal situation in these private coaching sessions.  Use them to help design your offers, get rid of old ancestral blockages and resistance, troubleshoot your particular niche, or get clarity on what you are really called to do – which might not be coaching in the traditional sense.  Use your sessions at any time you wish until July 2019.


That's right - instructors (plural!). Hi! I'm Bev Barnes, the Founder of Soul's Calling Academy, Master Coach Instructor for Wayfinder Coach Training, and Soul's Calling Mentor. I've been guiding, supporting & teaching people to discover and do their soul's calling for over 20 years - in corporations, universities, private practice and on-line - in my courses, retreats, trainings and mentoring. Using my intuitive radar to help you see your self and get out of your own way is my super-power. I love helping coaches to stop hiding and start shining. The world really needs you NOW.  

I'm so excited to tell you that for both the retreat & mastermind, I'll be joined by Nicole Croizier - Endorsed Soul's Calling Coach, Coach Instructor for Wayfinder Coach Training & Master Certified Marketing Consultant. Nicole's genius is helping to connect your purpose & genius to something that is tangible in the real world (like a program, product or service!) - and then running & marketing your business in a way that feels authentic & easy because it's in line with your natural flow & genius.

Angela Steele

Coach and Mentor at Soaring Soul's Coaching

"This entire experience (at the retreat & mastermind)... has been life changing... Today I have clarity and focus around who I am, my amazing gifts and my purpose.

I feel comfortable with myself, and I’m confident with building my coaching practice. I’m also very excited and inspired."

Kaliopi Nikitas

Life Coach: From Overwhelm to Awe

"Bev Barnes & Nicole Croizier are DYNAMITE! I've spent a lot of time & money trying to figure out how to earn a living being 'me', & these two helped me do just that. Bev helped me pinpoint my soul's purpose.. and Nicole taught me HOW to create it all in the real world while in full alignment with myself & needs. I've had a transformational year. Just do it. You won't regret it."

Lisa Catapano

Inspired Living Coach and Strategist

"The retreat was very powerful for me. Having dedicated time with other like-minded people offers the space needed to go deeply in the presence of expert guides (Bev & Nicole) who can support, challenge & celebrate you in just the way you need. Today, I have developed a coaching brand & practice...that is wholly true to what I believe & who I am. I feel whole, integrated, purposeful, inspired & fulfilled. Not to mention free, joyful & centered!"


Even though we dive deep, this work isn’t solemn and serious. It’s fun, and it’s playful. You’ll have belly laughs, and you’ll probably shed a few tears. I can promise you, that you’ll feel safe to be exactly who you are…warts and all.

We create a sisterhood,  a deep soul connection with others.  The bonds of sisterhood are built with love, and the desire to see each-other rise to their full potential. 

Your Soul Sisterhood will hold you up when you doubt and support you when life gets in the way of your dreams.  Your Soul Sisters will help you to be the “real” you and drop the pretense.  They will see your beauty when you can’t see your own.  They will remind you over and over again who you really are, when your mind wants to forget.

The power of a sisterhood will ignite, inspire and support you.


DAY ONE: See Yourself.

The focus of Day One is self-discovery. The day is designed to help you see your own gifts and examine your divine discontent. By the end of Day One, you “get” that you really are unique, and you’ll be able to see the magic in each person that is present. This is where real connections begin to form.

We start the day with drawing exercises that connect you to the right brain. (Don’t worry, no artistic talent is required!) You’ll be shocked at how much your subconscious already knows about what you want, that you aren’t consciously aware of.

You’ll see just how different you are from everyone else that is present — even though you have similar passions and desires. I’ve done this exercise many times with clients, and it’s always mind-boggling! You finally let go of the false belief that you have nothing different to offer.

In short, Day One feels like a love-in. You’ll end the day with a smile, bubbling with excitement and the desire to dig even deeper.


DAY TWO: See Your Hidden Self.

Day Two is where we’ll focus on the hidden parts of you — the parts of you that you don’t usually share, the shadow parts that you’ve disowned. This might include excavating your ego-based programming and ancestral fears (fears you’ve inherited) or becoming aware of sub-personalities that are no longer useful.

Your purpose lies behind your pain, so you’ll be shining a light on the painful parts of your life to uncover your core message and your soul’s purpose. You’ll clear the forest of your ego-self so that your soul-self can emerge.

You’ll also get coached by Bev, either personally or through hearing someone else get coached.

Day Two is a deep-dive and, although it can be tough, it’s rewarding. You’ll have plenty of time at the end of this day to integrate and make meaning of your life lessons which are both light and dark.

I’ve planned a 90-minute Sound Healing experience for the evening of Day 2. Known as “sound baths”, this experience is particularly powerful due to the intent of many minds and hearts synchronized together to create a coherent state. Using many different types of sound healing instruments including Antique Tibetan Singing bowls, crystal bowls, drums, and gongs these sacred healing allies wake you up, yet deeply relax you, by inducing whole brain states, altered consciousness, and a perception of timelessness. This 90-minute session integrates ceremony and energy healing.

DAY THREE: Face & Release Your Fears.

When you wake up on Day Three, you’ll feel like a shift has happened. You’ve released something.  You'll become aware of the patterns that have been holding you back and start naming and moving through what gets in your way.  You'll connect with your real source of power - your soul's purpose. 

We’ll spend much of the day outside, walking on the beach - having lunch at a cute restaurant, and  you'll get personally coached.  You’ll release even more old fears and blockages.

We’ll end this day with an optional group meal to celebrate all that you’ve already accomplished!

DAY FOUR:  Embrace Your Soul Self.

Our final day ends at 3pm.  This day is filled with celebration and integration.  When we gather together, each person receives honest and loving feedback from everyone in the group. This experience is mind-blowing and transformative, as you allow yourself to simply receive.

We round out the day with you completing your personal Unique Genius Blueprint. You'll have a starter niche outlined that you'll be able to further test and tweak after the retreat. 

By the end of Day four, you’re clear on exactly what your next steps are and which commitments you are ready to make. We’ll end after lunch.

Although Day Four is an exhilarating celebration, it’s also bittersweet because we must say goodbye to each other (for now!). The good news is that this doesn't have to be the end for the group.

If you decide to join the Soul Sisterhood Mastermind & Mentoring group, you can keep up the momentum with support from people who see the real you and will help you to move forward and create the nuts and bolts of a soul-aligned business that you love!



In the 3 months of masterminding and mentoring, you'll work through the process of building a soul-aligned business.  Whether you are starting from scratch or re-inventing an existing long established business, this process works.  You will:

  • Claim and accept your soul's purpose.  When you have a purpose that is off the beat and track, you may resist claiming it. But it's yours!  You'll get the help you need to do what you came here to do!
  • Share your genius both inside and outside the Sisterhood.  That means that you will try your services out in a safe place and get honest and authentic feedback.
  • Define your niche clearly.  You'll be able to test and tweak your niche so that it's a perfect fit.  You'll also discover "how" to best offer your services.
  • Craft the message you stand for and include this in your website and offers.  This is how you'll stand out and stop fitting in.  You'll define the difference that makes you unique and start voicing that.
  • Find your people and connect and communicate with them.  Research, research, research.  You'll do the work to discover who needs and will pay for what you offer.
  • Create an offer that your people crave or a passion project aligned with your purpose.  In the Mastermind, this is your tangible product or result - creating something that is soul-inspired that you love and your people need.
  • Get coached to get out of your own way.  You'll get coached by Bev AND you'll be learn how to self-coach, and do that.  You'll be required to get coached by each person in the group.  You can guarantee that your coaching confidence will sky-rocket and you'll get out of your own way!
