Here’s what mentors, colleagues and seekers I've served have to say about what I offer:


Spiritual Direction

“Laura Hegfield is a very gifted, intuitive, faith- filled being. She can listen deeply and help others discern the movement of Divine energy, spirit and love in their lives. Laura has extensive training in numerous educational, spiritual, healing and artistic modalities that make her a perfect companion and guide for those interested in going deeper into their own sacred journeys.”

Rabbi Sheila Peltz Weinberg
Institute for Jewish Spirituality, Director of Outreach, Spiritual Director, Author of Surprisingly Happy: An A-Typical Religious Memoir

“The wisest guides are those who have lived through much, who have suffered and lost, and remain victorious in spirit. Laura Hegfield is one such guide, and she inspires us to do the same. Meticulously trained in the “art of being present,” Laura brings depth and wisdom to any session—whether it is through SoulCollage®  or soul companioning—and I have found her be a mentor in the truest sense. She is authentic and transparent; calm and clear; experienced and supple enough to journey with people from any spiritual tradition. I highly recommend any of the services she offers, as I have benefitted from and been blessed by them myself.”

~Janice Lynne Lundy is an Interfaith Spiritual Director, syndicated columnist, and author of four spiritual growth books, including, Your Truest Self: Embracing the Woman You Are Meant to Be; Awakening the Spirit Within; and Coming Home to Ourselves. She is also the creator of Buddha Chick™. You can learn more about Jan at awakenedliving.com.

"Laura Hegfield is a brilliant, sensitive, loving, funny, dedicated soul whose mission is to help others feel, know, trust, express and share their own experience of the Divine. Working with Laura through various modalities of self-knowledge and self-expression, one knows one is guided by a deeply grounded person who is not afraid to fly." 

~Rabbi Nancy Flam, Director of Programs, Institute for Jewish Spirituality. & co-founder of the Jewish Healing Center

"Laura's preparation for serving as a Spiritual Director has come through years of working with others as a coach, an artist, a teacher, a yoga teacher, a friend, partner, mother, as well as herself training in these disciplines with fullness of heart and dedication of mind. Laura's compassion and deeply seeing eyes and heart enable her to listen to the pain and process of others with understanding and connection.  Laura is an able guide for others to discover how to heal their own broken hearts and open to gratitude, peace, joy and perhaps more questions along the spiritual journey.  As Laura has listened in a sustained way for the presence of God in everything and everyone...and inside her own being...she is able to help others cultivate that capacity to discern the divine presence within their own lives as well.”

~Rabbi Myriam Klotz, co-founder Yoga and Jewish Spirituality Teacher Training Institute, Isabella Freedman, Director of Yoga Movement Practices and , Institute for Jewish Spirituality.

Lev b’Lev SoulCollage® Guidance

“The best thing about Laura is that she meets each person in the present moment and she listens with her whole heart. There is such a gentle presence about her. I always feel safe when she is sharing information or leading guided meditations, and I love leading workshops and retreats with her by my side.”

~Anne Marie Bennett, SoulCollage® Facilitator & Trainer www.KaleidoSoul.com and author of Bright Side of the Road: a Spiritual Journey Through Breast Cancer www.annemariebennett.com

"Laura is such an inspiration to me as I navigate the challenges of living day-to-day with chronic illness. I've been learning to treat the facts that make up my life as colors on a palette -- full of potential and possibilities. This allows me to hold chronic illness more lightly and engage it more creatively, instead of treating it as the totality of my identity. Laura inspires me to see the world with new eyes."

~Toni Bernhard, author of How to Be Sick: A Buddhist-Inspired Guide for the Chronically Ill and Their Caregivers, former law professor and dean of students at the University of California, Davis.

“Laura, you are a spirit gate-opener. I have never heard the term before; I just know you are IT.”
~Audrey Brooks, Yoga & Jewish Spirituality Teacher, Spiritual Director, SoulCollage® Facilitator, Artist

I am on a life journey that few people understand better than Laura.  When she offered to lead a SoulCollage® session with me, I didn't know what to expect.  Throughout the session I felt Laura's loving presence and generous spirit.  She gently led me through the questions and waited with me for the answers.  Thank you, Laura, for holding a space for me.  The SoulCollage® reading was a wonderful heart-to-heart experience that has enriched my journey.   ~ Sharon Mitchell


 Yoga Meditation
and Jewish Spirituality


“Laura deeply senses that the wisdom of the Divine is embodied in the physicality of life.  Laura's creative and insightful integration of Jewish spirituality and yoga practice opens worlds of discovery and weaving for participants.  Laura is a gifted teacher of Torah and yoga.  Her humor and creativity will inspire and support those who engage in the exploration of finding Divine wisdom and presence through the body, moment to moment, in the practice of Gesher Yoga Meditation and Jewish Spirituality.”

~Rabbi Myriam Klotz, co-founder Yoga and Jewish Spirituality Teacher Training Institute, Isabella Freedman, Director of Yoga and Movement Practices, Institute for Jewish Spirituality.

The name of the Jewish people in Hebrew is Yehudim based on the name of Jacob's son Yehuda.  The root of this word means gratitude.  Laura Hegfield is one of the most grateful people I know.  She not only teaches gratitude, she is an embodiment of gratitude, and that makes her  a teacher of what is most essential about Judaism.  She teaches gratitude even when faced with all kinds of health challenges. The light that shines gently and kindly from Laura in all her words and actions is what makes her one of the most profound teachers of Yoga and Jewish Spirituality that I know.  It is a privilege to be Laura's teacher and student and bask in the light of love and gratitude that she gives wisely and generously.
