"My experience with Donna during her six month Wisdom Keeper mentorship program blew the doors off of any expectations I had for working with a coach / facilitator. Donna’s depth, wisdom, transparency, groundedness, ability to relate, support, and flow with me was astounding. SO RARE this woman truly is. Fully immersed in it with me every step of the way, but also well boundaried at the same time.
She is a unique, beautiful, and strong mother, sister, friend. I had a lot of reluctancy at first and many fears about working with Donna, as I’d had so many negative experiences in the past within the spiritual community of “teachers” with no direct experience of what they teach. Disappointed so many times when the person I went to for help and support was not able to meet me where I was at. I was also afraid to participate because though I am a mother, I have no living children. I was different from the other women. I am not the traditional mother.
Donna’s material and mentorship program is organized, well thought out, and unique to her own personal soul and dreaming. It is not a copy based on anyone else’s belief system. This - is gold. It is a powerful message and gift she shares openly. She was able to move with me and add / change/ tweak materials and offerings as I needed throughout the program. The journeys, writing prompts, exercises, ceremonies, and rituals were all available to watch or listen or write or practice at my own pace. She never put her own spiritual beliefs upon me, but always encouraged me to develop my own, with her support and encouragement ever present.
Working with Donna these six months was no new age vomit gloss. Thank Gods. She is a true mystic and is wise beyond her years. She understood and supported me in ways I have never experienced or ever received with or from another woman. Working with her assisted me in bringing through my own dreaming in so many ways - connecting with my womb, continuing my shadow work, processing ancestral karma, working with archetypes, creating my own website, and developing the framework for offering my gifts publicly in the ways I feel called.
She helped me to ease out of a hiding I had been in for years. She was willing to traverse terrain with me that was not always exactly on the syllabus. I will be forever grateful and can’t recommend her highly enough.

"Making the choice to work with Donna in her Wisdom Keeper Initiate Level 1 training is one of THE BEST decisions I have made in my life so far. She inspired me to remember & reconnect with my allness, my power & my wisdom.
Her guidance, walking by my side & holding my hand as I stepped into my power, had a majorly transformative effect on my personal/spiritual development, & also my business development, which has progressed faster than I ever dreamed of. When I started working with Donna, I was too afraid & unsure of my ability to hold my first womens’ circle by myself, despite having heard the strong call to do so for a few years prior.
I’d collaborated with other women for a few circles previously, but always in more of a support role. Within a short space of working intensively with Donna, I was offering my first circle by myself, on the synchronistic date of the first Australian Womens’ Day.
I’ve continued holding regular circles since then, & have also had some amazing opportunities arise that I’ve been blessed to experience.
Prior to working with Donna, I never dreamed of stepping up THIS much, but she inspired me to really feel into my soul’s calling, & my big “why”, & do the “work” (which was fun...so I’d call it more “play”), & all of a sudden all these amazing opportunities presented themselves.
Donna saw straight through any limiting beliefs and challenges I had (such as “imposter syndrome”), & gently but powerfully helped me to shift these and really step up into my calling. T
hrough practices she shared with me & her unwavering belief in me & my capabilities, she provided the catalyst effect that I was needing to really get things moving in many facets of my life.
Donna is an incredible inspiration in role-modeling how to juggle the responsibilities as a mama to her tribe, whilst also inspiring and supporting so many other women through her generous offerings, & still making space for her own self-care.
I love & respect this woman so much, & am deeply grateful for this journey she has guided me through. Thank you Donna. “

"Choosing Donna Raymond as my business mentor in 2020 was a clear and confirmed sign (at the time) from my animal totem. Once we began in November, it was evident that Donna was the best decision for my stepping stone towards bringing to life the idea and vision I had for my business.
When we started, two years had passed when my Dad (Frank Vagnoni) died. At the time I was feeling really lost as to what I was meant to be doing with my life. I knew a business mentor would be the first step in supporting and guiding me to unpack this dream/vision I had for myself and begin the process of making it a reality. I'm so deeply grateful it was Donna who walked beside me every step of the way! She challenged me ~ pushed me outside my comfort zone ~ called my blind spots out ~ motivated and encouraged me ~ celebrated milestones with me ~ checked-in and went above and beyond.
What I loved about Donna being my mentor... Their was no fluff, she went straight to the point and would call things out, which is my style. Even though hard truths can be a tough pill to swallow at times - I actually prefered it.
At the time of working with Donna I had many intentions (goals)... ✨Gain clarity of my vision / purpose
✨ Map out and explore my soul clients
✨ Work through money blocks
✨ Create a business logo
✨ Map out my monthly women's gathering
✨ Address personal blockages
✨ Create content for a website And, so much more.
The results I gained were priceless:
✨Creativity was reactivated
✨Sacred sexuality and sensuality
✨ Practices to support my bleeding cycle
✨A vision of one of my offerings I would like to share - Donna took me through an initiation process to receive my own medicine of what it would like. Truly epic and mind blowing. Heart opening and expansive.
✨ Business photoshoot planned and booked in with well-known photographer up in Cairns - Chanel Baran
✨ Offered my first women's gathering in January 2021 and continued each month do to so
✨ Gained feedback and testimonials from women who have attended.
The list goes on as to what I gained during my time with Donna. A 6-month journey I shall never forget.
Donna tailored the program to meet my specific personal / individual needs for my business. Even if I was processing something unrelated to my business that was hindering my vision, Donna would address the issue with me. What's even more special, we became friends/sisters through it all and we still keep in contact. I'm honoured to have such a woman in my life.
And, I would highly recommend working with Donna, whether in a business focused capacity or personal."
“The Sacred YOUnion Ceremony came for me at a really challenging point in my life, and could not have been more appropriate timing. Donna’s sincerity, her true desire for women to heal and feel whole, and her ability to genuinely hold space for the Divine Feminine to shine through, allowed me to gift myself with the love that I so needed.
For me the ceremony was a simple yet powerful commitment to self, a declaration that I will indeed choose self-love, nurturing and abundance as my path forward. With Donna’s guidance and the support of the beautiful women in the group, I came to remember that I am the one who has the power to give and receive all that I need.
Every woman deserves this gift of trust in herself.”

“The sacred YOUnion ceremony was perfectly timed to compliment my initial process with Donna. Leading up to it, I felt a lot of resistance. "Who would want to marry you? Why would you want to marry yourself Bridey?" On top of that, Valentines Day held some hugely traumatic memories for me and as it was looming the resistance became greater. But in the back of my mind, three words from my initial process with Donna kept coming into my mind. "Not my story!" I knew it was time to rewrite my story and reclaim valentines day as a day for me and a celebration of myself. I cannot express in words how much this meant to me. My inner maiden came out to play (something I did not get to experience at my first and legal wedding, as I was already a breast feeding mamma to my second son at the tender age of 23). She was nervous, excited, innocent, happy, playful, beautiful, radiating self love, and dressed up for the occasion. The ceremony itself was breathtaking and Donna was the most incredible celebrant. A little sunbird flew around my head the whole time (a very significant symbol in my life) and my inner priestess surfaced to read out the vows. When Donna presented to me the wedding ring I had picked out for myself, I was filled with such joy. I am so grateful to Donna and myself for rewriting my story for valentines day and setting a new path for my relationship with my children and myself. Thank you Donna!!! So much love”
“I felt compelled to work with Donna because I have been fortunate enough to witness her manifest and create her dreamings; to experience and feel her hold space for others, including myself when working through our shadow stuff, and because of the calm, wise, supportive energy I feel whenever in her presence. Also due to wanting, needing to move through my programming / shadow stuff and I see Donna’s footprints just ahead of me…
Donna has also helped me identify and feel the power within me"
“Previously experiencing the majick that Donna weaves, naturally I feel drawn to her work. Her teachings are deep and profound, spiritual or otherwise. Her guidance has always resonated with me, she speaks from a place of sincerity, experience and love. Unlike conventional business teachings where the evident objective tone regarding your outcome sabotage your experience, upon the realization that you are no more than a dollar sign.
Donna has helped me open doors I didn’t know existed "
