Anne-Marie Emanuelli

Creative Director & Founder

My 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 spirituality and the sacredness of life and Nature.

I am here to learn and expand with you.

As a retired educator with over 25 years classroom and 15 years distance learning experience, I have on-the-job knowledge and understanding of what it takes to create and deliver engaging and creative online curriculum. I’d like to share these experiences with educators and schools needing group and one-on-one training.
