It makes me smile whenever I talk about it. It’s a calling that is always met with a resounding YES within.
My deepest driver is FREEDOM.
I’ve spent the past few years exploring what freedom means to me, how it shows up in our lives, what aspects in life are helpful to focus on to experience more of it, and how freedom is linked to leadership, personally and professionally.
My exploration in and around freedom has resulted in a budding body of work that I am now starting to share with the world. I’m very excited as I feel that the time we’re currently in, is a brilliant opportunity to review, revisit, and recharge the rebirth of who we want to be, how we want to show up as leaders in our personal and professional lives.
I’m wanting to connect with women in business who are seeking or yearning for a deeper connection. Women who resonate with or welcome language such as, ‘soulful leadership, ‘soulful power’, ‘inner pulse’, and ‘vibrational fitness’. Who are energised by exploration, discovery, and co-creating a new frame for who they want to be in the world, who they want to be as a leader in their personal and professional life. Women who are feeling the call to add or bring more of their spiritual growth into their business and professional life.
In the early 2000’s I’d got to a point in my career where my job no longer gave me the satisfaction it used to. Something was missing. I wasn’t really fully present, it felt like my soul was asleep. I was going through the motions, accompanied by an inner voice shouting, “There must be more to life than this!”.
In 2010, a dear friend and mentor gave me a piece of advice that deeply challenged me, but that would also change my world. She had been following me for a while and seen my struggles. She said, “Maria, it’s time that you bring your personal practices into your work life.” What that really meant was, it was time for me to show up fully. To make use of my personal sacred practices in my work life, to stop leaving a part of me at home when I went to work. I followed her advice and my life hasn’t been the same since.
I’m deeply motivated by personal evolution and growth, my own as well as what’s possible for my clients, as I consider it to be strongly linked to FREEDOM.
I take what I do seriously, but I don’t take myself too seriously. A mix of more than 30 years of corporate experience in the high-tech electronics industry + my own spiritual journey over the past 15+ years, has provided the backdrop for my work as a guide, mentor, and coach over the last 7 years.
I’m using all of the above to fuel my vision to create a world in which we lead soulfully from deeper wisdom, where the use of sacred or philosophical practices in our professional lives is considered normal.
I look forward to connecting with you here from time to time.
