A CONNECTION TO SPIRIT IS ESSENTIAL
FOR OUR HAPPINESS.


I was beginning to wonder if I was still “crazy.” And then, so gracefully, Susan shed light on the situation, in a way only she can. Then the door opened. The light bulb turned on. The breeze swept through, and the music blared. Let me tell you, if you need someone to help you get unstuck, Susan is your gal. I can’t tell you the relief I feel having gained the perspective to address the issue we did today. I’m so grateful for her.

I read a book called The Spirit of Intimacy: Ancient African Teachings in the Ways of Relationships, by Sobonfu Somé– and then tracked her down for 6 months. Three years later I was one of a handful of Westerners to get initiated into the rites, rituals, and healing wisdom of her tradition.

Get to Know Susan Hough


Susan Hough has been living her gift for over 30 years. A born healer, she began her journey on the East Coast working with teens and families as a social worker. The Rites of Passage of losing her mother, being diagnosed with breast cancer, and suffering through a divorce caused Susan's entire life to shift. Experiencing so many rites of passage at once set her off on a journey to heal herself both physically and spiritually in Laguna Beach. Studying the teachings of Sobonfu Somé, Susan felt her life shifting once again. After reading Sobonfu's book "The Spirit of Intimacy" several times she knew they had to meet. When she finally met Sobonfu, they connected on a deep spiritual level, and their lives  became intertwined. For the next 18 years Sobonfu mentored her in the practice of traditional African Rituals. Through these rituals Susan learned the role that spirit plays in her life, and vowed to share this wisdom; creating Living Your Gifts.

Susan has the rare perspective of having a background in traditional therapy, studying indigenous healing methods, and training as a life coach. With her diversity of education and experience, she has combined her teachings to develop a coaching practice that honors spirit while integrating traditional methods. Susan's approach to Spiritual Coaching focuses on finding your gifts and enabling you to share them with the world.

Susan is a CTI certified Life Coach, and has trained with Mietek Wierkus in energy healing, Mary Branch Grove in the healing arts, and Jennifer Halls in intuitive healing.


For the first time in a long time, I am able to stop the tapes from playing and make better decisions for myself. I’m actually less doubtful of myself. I didn’t think that was possible for me.

You are like the sun that radiates so much warmth. It’s hard, even for myself at this time, to feel bad about myself in your presence!
