Dr. Lisa VonderHaar and her daughter, Sara Papathakis created SoulTerra in 2015. For years, both women shared dreams of guiding wilderness retreats. Each relocated from other Colorado mountain towns to the Salida area in Chaffee County and began guiding summer and fall wilderness retreats.
As life unfolded, Sara decided to pursue a masters degree in social work as well as a full-time caseworker position. Needless to say, she no longer has time to devote to SoulTerra, so Dr. Lisa is carrying on solo.
As a psychologist and lover of nature, SoulTerra is Lisa's opportunity to blend these two loves. . .an ability to guide people to an awareness of their deepest Self, while held in the simplicity and power of Nature.
