Donna Sica and Maura Bertotti set an intention to start a spirituality center, a place to find peace, after their synchronistic meeting a little less than three years ago. They met while Donna was playing Chakra Chrystal bowls to a small community of twenty people in her home. A few months later their “Field of Dreams” came true and in the true spirit of the movie, they opened their center and people came. Soulful Awakenings is located at 1700 main St in Lake Como, NJ. The website is SoulfulAwakenings.com
The offerings at the center are designed to nourish mind, body and spirit through Chakra Crystal Bowl meditations, yoga, and angel channelings. Their approach encompasses the spiritual philosophy of “take whatever resonates and leave the rest.” Alchemy Bowl meditations and by-appointment angel readings are also offered. Soulful Awakenings is on Facebook http://Soulful Awakenings
Different styles of Yoga, taught by certified instructors, are offered at various times during the week. A spirituality class, modeled after Louise Hay’s “You Can Do It” model, is offered on Saturdays. The class is aptly named: Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life because once you do the former, the latter inevitably follows.

The goals of Soulful Awakenings according to Donna Sica are: “to help people remember who they truly are, raise their vibrations toward love, and come from a more loving place.” They don’t do traditional advertising and depend on word of mouth to get the word out. You can’t go wrong when the word is positive. The word is Love. Their motto: “Love is truly you.”
Maura Bertotti is an angel channeler, spiritual medium and reiki practitioner. Her journey began with Lynn Flatt in Waretown where they founded the Earth Angels group. Maura heads the Sapphire Angels at Soulful Awakenings. She shares Donna’s sentiment by saying: “People need a place to feel safe, find their freedom, and express their need to grow. Spirituality is the spring board to living out your passions.” Soulful Awakenings is a place to find peace, love and happiness within, then share with others through passionate endeavors.
Donna and Maura are grateful for the success of the Soulful Awakenings center in Lake Como. Their new goal is to build a bigger “Field of Dreams” by finding a larger property for a new center with a parking capacity of about 60-70 cars. They concentrate on positive thoughts which they say are like: “drops that we put out to create a ripple effect for the manifestations of intentions in the highest good of all.” Positive thoughts lead to a positive life for yourself and everyone around you.
