More PEACE—less chaos.
More EASE—less stress.
More LOVE—less fear.
This is what it means to Raise Your State. I’m Victoria Allen: a mentor to minds, a champion of spirits, a tender of dreams and a yin yogi.
But… most of all, I’m a believer in you: I believe you have what it takes to raise your inner state, to introduce fierce self-love into your life, to make loving choices, and to courageously cultivate fulfilling relationships. And I want to help you ignite your soul journey to this state. I’ll support you opening to the subtle joy and grace within you that arises when you awaken to the truth of Who you are.
My life has long been a mission to help people heal and raise their consciousness. I started my career as a nurse, and from there, have dedicated over two decades as a transformational wisdom teacher and therapist.
I’ve earned my Bachelors in Nursing and certification as an OB-GYN Nurse Practitioner, a Masters in Psychology with a license in Marriage and Family Therapy, and certification as a New Agreements Coach. I’m trained as a Svaroopa-style yoga teacher and steeped in DreamWork.
Along the way, I’ve discovered that some of our deepest openings into LOVE come from our most painful experiences: for me, that’s included heartbreak, divorce, breast cancer, and recognizing and clearing the pain from my own faulty beliefs and habits. But through these challenges, I’ve gained the gifts that have brought me into greater states of love and contentment.
I’ve now discovered what living with ‘subtle joy’ is really about. And I’m here to share it with you. You’re not alone. You’re not broken. And you’re ready to become a student of life. I will help you uncover the transformative power of inner Grace that untangles the knots of the ego’s striving. You can awaken and open to your true happiness + deep contentment that is already inside of you — right now. (Even if you don’t think so.)
Take a look at all of the ways we can work together here, or simply get in touch with me. I can’t wait to hear from you. P.S: Here are a few other details about me and my work:
- If I had it my way, we’d live in a world where Relationships 101 is taught in school, and courageous loving of both ourselves and others is the priority Since we don’t, this is my work’s focus, supported by straightforward and compassionate methods.
- My biggest goal in our work together is to create the space and support system you need to feel comfortable, open, and safe. I want to release you from needless suffering and open your ability to be a wiser, truer, and happier You.
- I specialize in dream work because I witness that Dreams are the Golden Gateway that bring our unconscious to consciousness.
- I’m based in Santa Barbara, California, and I work with my students via Zoom and phone.
- Some of my work, the meditation circle and the spiritual retreats, is a joint creation with my partner Doug. You can read more about his work and the significant facilities he brings to Raise Your State here.
- I’ve studied intensely with Don Miguel Ruiz, the author of The Four Agreements, and served as a member of his Elder Council: his work is the foundation to my own which began in 1988. My studies with several renowned spiritual masters have deepened my own consciousness, and I bring a depth of yogic teachings into my work. Thank you Mark, Swami, Rama, Kathleen and Anand.
- I answer all of the emails I get personally, and sincerely. If you reach out ~ I’ll reach back.
