Anne-Marie Emanuelli

Creative Director & Founder

Creative Director and meditation instructor at Mindful Frontiers, Anne-Marie Emanuelli, brings over two decades of meditation experience to welcome a mindful future. Her life path is to share the benefits of meditation with families, individuals and groups.

“My personal spirituality and meditation experience has grown to encompass many philosophies and practices as well as ways of nurturing inner calm. Life’s experiences have taught me resilience and faith, while exposure to different cultures expanded my understanding of the sacredness of life through a relationship with Mother Nature.”

Anne-Marie’s mindfulness credentials include certificates from Mindful Schools, Sage Institute for Creativity and Consciousness, Labyrinth Facilitator training from Veriditas, and an 8-week MBSR course. She also participates in online meditation retreats to support her personal practice. She retired from full-time classroom teaching in 2020.
