"Raileigh was a wonderful coach for me when I was just beginning a very big transitionary period in my life. Before starting our coaching sessions, I felt overwhelmed with my life and it was difficult to find motivation to really take control. I was going through a spiritual awakening while dealing with severe anxiety and was looking for a new path. Raileigh provided a 100% supportive and judgement-free space for me to express my thoughts and feelings so that we could both take a closer, collaborative look at what was going on in my head. We were able to acknowledge and get to the root of my most pressing issues and develop a unique self-care plan to tackle these issues. Raileigh has a lot of knowledge and experience in self-development and I learned some really useful coping mechanisms and acts of self-care through our coaching sessions. I would highly recommend her services to anyone that is feeling doubtful, insecure, anxious, and needs help finding their inner light again!"



“As a life coach myself, I know the benefits of having support and guidance through life. For myself, I reached out to Raileigh at a critical time in my life. A time where I’m healing from a relationship ending. Meditation has always been challenging for me, but since my session, I have been intentional about taking time to sit still and reflect. Raileigh walked me through a visionary prompt and although I didn’t know what to expect, it was so good to be able to see things I didn’t think I would be made aware of. As a coach, Raileigh did a great job of asking questions and allowing me the space and safe place to answer and discover ideas, concepts and emotions that naturally surfaced during the session. What I loved most about Raileigh’s approach is that we didn’t just talk about things and discover things, but it was followed up with an action plan or steps to take to aid in my continual healing process and self love journey. These steps have been helpful in me staying focused on the clarity and peace I desire. If you need a safe place to express what is going on in your life and want guidance and support in discovering certain areas and take steps towards better living, I recommend you attend a session."

"Raileigh holds impeccable space for healing. For such a young person, her abilities make it very clear she is an old soul. Her heart is pure.

I took part in a retreat she facilitated last month in the Asheville area. It was so nourishing and in the flow of Spirit. Also, check out her book Phoenix Medicines."

 "I received more clarity than I could've ever imagined. I had no idea that my time with Raileigh would help me so much and expand the vision for my life. I met with her having a few ideas, little inklings, and sparks here and there but she helped me to see that they were so much more and that when seen in the right light, a vision and a path became clear. So I truly appreciated that guidance and having someone to see the vision in its entirety as it emerged and unfolded. The worksheets and questions that I was given to answer helped me be more thorough and drawn out with whatever we had touched on during the calls. I know that they are something I can return to, to remind myself of certain things we may have covered and even expand upon; as things change. I would say the most impactful resource was just being able to have those conversations with her, being asked deep-tough questions, and having the opportunity to do shadow work, process, and "slow down" as more and more became known. I've gained a lot more confidence and trust — in myself and the universe — that came from the clarity of being aligned with purpose and path. I'm stepping into owning it honoring what I've gained and learning to take me forward in life. Beyond grateful to have come across this opportunity, it was what I needed and didn't know I was looking for. I just took that leap and I see how it led me to the next stage in my journey and I wouldn't have wanted to be any other way. I had an amazing time in the short time that I spent and got to know Raileigh. I'm grateful for the moments we shared, the conversations we had and the love she poured."



" I am more firm on the path I want to take in life. Which was not clear before. Thanks to Raileigh, she has been a great guide. Every day I make the bold steps to walk into the vision of my life. It's a daily discovery journey. I have received tools to reflect on and journal about. A mindset shift and lifestyle changes that I can implement daily to become more of who I am supposed to be.  I am confident in myself. More positive about my life and especially my future. This experience has left a mark on my life. I have found beauty in my life. I have become someone beautiful, brave and confident. I began to see my worth and now I know that I deserve better and I can live a fulfilling life as God has planned for me. I now see the gift I have for the world, the light I have, and with this knowledge, my purpose is to help others and be a light in this world and help people become their authentic versions and not settle for less. This has been truly astounding and a transformational experience. Thank you Raileigh, you are a gift to this world."



"Had an AMAZING experience with Raileigh Duschen who is a conscious lifestyle coach. I pulled my lower back back trying to be cute the other day. Thought I was signing up to learn how to stretch my back and ended up having a God moment! I felt so in LOVE with me and inspired to use the exercise routine and breathing techniques she taught me. With prayer, meditation, and these stretches I’ve been in the mirror like….
The best form of self~Love is actually admitting there is a problem then giving yourself the opportunity to heal. After you have healed you better not run to the foolishness! Look at the GLO thoooo!!"

"I have gained an awareness on what was blocking my purpose. I feel so grateful and so ready to thrive with my new tools. I joined this community at a very fragile time in my life. Looking for direction. And…Honestly, I could not possibly think of a better experience to be had. when going through transformations, having support is super important and I would not have asked for a better Coach! Coach Raileigh was patient, and attentive and gave such constructive guidance, it feels like magic. Thank you from every ounce of my being!! I have now built the confidence I need to help others. You hold us accountable and that is exactly what we need! Thank you."

"Good timing. Finally worked through a major energy block thanks to some help from Raileigh Duschen...i f you're dealing with energy blocks or difficult situations in your life, Raileigh is an excellent life coach with excellent spiritual guidance skills".
"It's all beginning to make sense in the spirit realm. The universe is there to open your understanding to the gift within you. Thanks for the Energy Recalibration work sheet. Complex but an essential tool for opening up discussion to discovering the best way to proceed in unblocking whatever it is that's prevents you from letting go and completing trusting the universe to bring you healing in whatever it is you may need. Raleigh has been pretty transparent concerning how she wants to be a vehicle of light to help others come to know theirs. I highly would recommend any one interested in finding a means to better understand how being aware of oneself through The Most High Kind of love (self-discovery and reflection) can truly find bring peace and happiness to your well being."
"Raileigh was just the support and friend I needed—just at the right time. With her genuine kindness and sincerity, she gently, sweetly guided me to my own inner truths. Through deep listening with love, and just the right questions and reflections, she helped me discover, and remember, that which fuels my unique heart towards deeper fulfillment, deep trust, and the deepest peace. I cherish the time we shared. I believe she is divinely inspired and is answering her special call to service through this work and wherever else she is led. I am infinitely grateful for Raileigh and her willingness to share her soft, yet potent medicine."

"If you are ready to transform your life then Phoenix Medicines is a great place to start. Raileigh Duschen creates a delightful, flowing path for the reader to set off on a spiritual healing journey, inspired by her own story of overcoming and blossoming. The topics she covers are trusted methods for self-development and inner healing. But, it is her poetry that speaks to the heart in a way that transcends learning and understanding to a place of deep knowing, a true salve for the soul."

"Reading your book was like a punch in the gut.

It hit home with such an immediacy that I was in disbelief.

There is such a richness in thought on every page that I find you can read the same passages over and over and still get the same sense of purpose in equal measure if not more so.

It’s also obvious that you have lived the type of experiences where the saying ‘what doesn’t kill you can only make you stronger’ applies, so I can appreciate the truth you speak from.

I realize in your writing that at certain junctures your writing is from a feminist perspective, but for the most part, I find you speak to universal truths that resonate with me and should resonate with most human beings, full stop."

Letter from a reader

"This book doesn't contain fluff or useless tactics, but instead shares potent stories that remind us of how many brave, authentic, and inspiring people there are out there. At first I was a little hesitant because I'm a male, and this book appeared to be only for women, but I was wrong. It's for anyone who wants to better their lives by reading concise, interesting stories about people who have done so. Lastly, I do love how the book doesn't skip financial fulfillment considering it's such a large component of our lives. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to quickly get to the core of what it means to live a meaningful life."

"Thank you for a wonderful time of sharing and meditation last evening. The pathway to awareness is such an illuminating journey and you make such a space and encouraging space for those who join. Thank you for being a willing vessel of light and healing and for helping us all to embrace our light as we move into our purpose!"

"This experience left me with a profound sense of inner peace and excitement. The ability to create a meaningful space where strangers can come together and share wisdoms, intentionally connect, and receive practical tools for personal development in just two days is truly astonishing. I walked in with a heaviness in my heart and apprehension to what this healing retreat could actually do for my current state of mind but, I am so happy to walk away with a sense of optimism and enthusiasm. Knowing that I share a world with the beautifully genuine and attentive people I met during this process makes me hopeful for who God will bring into my life as I continue on my path. What a healing reminder to make space for connecting with people and showing up to not only be heard, but to truly listen."

"The ‘door’ that was opened in the retreat was so expansive.  I’m still in awe of the view ahead of US (the individual Me’s and the collective US)".

"Their guided meditations followed by group discussions allowed everyone to learn from each other and feel connected. The yoga practice in the dome was relaxing and reminded me how good it feels to stretch. The beautiful natural surroundings and delicious nurturing food were the icing on the cake!"



"Being part of a free-flowing, deeply connected retreat felt like a breath of fresh air. It wasn't the highly organized event I expected; instead, it had this easy flow where everyone just clicked and pitched in. The space was set for open conversations which made me feel safe and inspired at the same time. If you’re looking for a community that is filled with Love, who accepts you wherever you are. Try one of Raleigh’s next retreats, promise you won’t regret it."

"Raileigh is an amazing facilitator. The gifts she brings to a group setting are numerous. Her ability to manage multiple elements of an experience is incredible. Having attended a retreat she recently hosted, I was impressed with the nutritious and delicious menu she created, as well as the quality of food that was prepared. As a ceremonial guide, Raileigh incorporates several elements that support an experience of safely entering the sacred space of circle; energy clearing with smoke, sound bathing, meditations and yoga to connect with the inner self, allowing participants to open their hearts and share personal challenges as well as the wisdom gleaned from navigating those life challenges. Above all, it is Raileigh’s loving demeanor and the kindness of her voice that are the greatest gifts of being in her presence."


North Carolina

"What’s most remarkable about Raileigh isn’t just her unconventional path, but her awareness and wisdom she displays. She is committed to spiritual growth and wisdom. She is an old soul in a young body, at the start of a life -long journey to learn, to share and to love. I suspect her inquisitiveness and unique outlook will take her interesting places. This is a conversation for all of us, about the ongoing quest for greater consciousness, for peace and for a simple love of life. It’s a conversation you don’t want to miss."

"I had the joy of working with Raileigh in the lead up to and during the Organic Growers School Spring Conference earlier this year, at which she was a speaker. She brought compassion and kindness to all of our interactions, and made it easy for me as a coordinator to work with her. In her class, she also provided something that we rarely have at the Conference: an opportunity for farmers and growers to ground themselves in their bodies and reconnect to why they do what they do. While most of our workshops have to do with practical skills for growing food, it was invaluable to have a class that brought in the spiritual connections we have to the land, to ourselves, and to our history. I had a participant come find me at the conference to let me know that it was his favorite class, and that he had experienced a breakthrough moment during the workshop with Raileigh. She has so much to offer the world, and I can't wait to see what she does with this book and beyond."

"Raileigh is a beam of light.  She radiates a divine connection that is not often seen.  Her wisdom is far beyond her years.  The Conscious Lifestyle is the way out of suffering. Awakened young leaders like Raileigh are a reminder that the future is bright indeed."

"Raileigh came and spoke at Warren Wilson recently, and it was really awesome! Her passion for helping folks connect to themselves, plants, and the natural world as a whole is evident and unmatched. We really appreciated having her come to campus to share her stories and philosophies with us."
