Anne Olree – "After a corporate career life was calling her to explore and realise herself. She went on a deep transformative journey into the depths of her own being. She found out that she was destined to live a life dedicating herself to self realization and self initiation. These days working with individuals and groups in one on one sessions, trainings and retreats. With a background and trainings in different styles of coaching, therapy, yoga, meditation, Jungian depth psychology, shadow work, shamanic and tantric practices she loves to explore the depth of our human exinstence. She considers life to be the initiation and values and honors every walk of life and way of living. Her current mantra is: “Life is the initiation and you are the initiator, the creator, the guru, the magician. Never forget: Life is happening for you! Life wants you to grow. Be grateful for everything. Each moment again.”
GUIDING PEOPLE TO CONNECT WITH THEIR TRUE SELVES
I get delighted when people are able and dare to just be themselves and follow their hearts, chasing their dreams, because they believe in them and don't let fear hold them back. That is the path I have taken myself, from head to heart. Turning more inward and discovering who I am at the deepest level. I was able to connect with my true self and start living my life according to what is true for me.
My own path showed me the way into my mission in this lifetime to guide people to connect with their true selves and to live their lives from a place of authenticity, freedom and love, without judgment towards self or others. From the moment we are born we are being conditioned by our environment and sometimes we forget who we truly are and what we need, with all its consequences we see in the world these days ...
I love this life, its richness and diversity, its ups and downs. It is this richness of being able to experience what makes us humans unique. I always used to be very outward-looking, working hard, partying a lot. For me at that time that was experiencing life to the fullest, limitless and endless. It took a burnout to learn that I have limits and to be able to turn more inward to learn much more about myself and life within and finally find more peace within myself.
FROM CORPORATE TO INDEPENDENT
After a career in the corporate world, in which I enjoyed working for large organizations and in various marketing roles, at a certain point something changed in me and I no longer got the satisfaction from my work as I did before. It was time to take my life in a different direction and instead of developing products and brands, focus on developing people. That was always what I was good at, being able to work with everyone and see the other person's unique contribution and connect with them on shared ground.
FROM HEAD TO HEART
Actually, it was in a first ceremony I did that I got the message very clearly to learn to live from my heart instead of my head. I have a very strong cognition and it was dominant in my life. I had never learned to express my feelings so I didn't really know how to deal with them, hiding them or numbing them was easier, being strong and carrying on, even though I was and I still am a very sensitive person. So the message was clear. And from there began the path of really connecting with myself, my body and my heart.
I started meditating, writing, started with coaching and yoga. I went on a deep transformative journey, exploring it all. I immersed myself in multilple trainings and courses. I was eager to learn more about shamanism and working with plant medicines. I became fascinated by indigenous traditions and their pure way of being and being in touch with nature and their environment. In particular, the indigenous tribe from Brazil, the Huni Kuin, have a special place in my heart. They came on my path and through working with them I have learned a lot about myself, life and the universe. There is so much more than we can imagine with our human minds.
COURSES / TRAININGS
To get where I am today, many people have inspired and educated me along the way. Above all, I consider everyone I have encountered in my life and everything that has happened to me in life or that I have chosen to experience as a soul, as inspiration and lessons on my life path.
