the Heart of our Humanity

EARTHwise Centre is a wisdom-based enterprise providing custodianship, leadership, value-creation, regenerative design, capacity development, holistic education, and vision development for our collective flourishing and actualisation. We support organizations to raise their standards, and develop internal capacity and leadership for ecological value creation and thriveability. We bring the heart back into our human activities and networks. We bridge from the collective unconscious with intuitive intelligence to appropriate action, for the Good of the Whole.

Our targeted trainings, and executive coaching programs are designed to unlock and align the human development potentials within & between organizations. This also includes tools and strategies for revitalizing the Heart of the Organisation. For more information about our corporate services, click here.


Custodianship & Empowerment – Through our training, coaching, and educational services we support organisations and individuals to develop their internal capacity and leadership as custodians for a thriveable world and future. We make concrete how people can contribute to the flourishing of people, planet, and life, through their activities and relationships.

Transformation & Innovation – As transformational change leaders we work at the intersection between the visible and invisible worlds of our collective (un)consciousness. Accordingly, we are able to support the emergence of new evolutionary potentials through which innovation and regeneration become realized.

Healing & Advocacy – Our societies are deeply divided, much healing is needed before all of us can thrive and flourish. Through our Vector of Love™ Initiatives and EARTHwise Campaigns, we stand with people for the issues that require our conscious attention and collective care.

Coming soon! Possibility to book online sessions with our EARTHwise Custodians & Coaches.

Love Letters from Mother Earth takes us into the heart of our humanity to discover Our Story from a new perspective. Through these Letters, we receive the wisdom and support that our planet, as a caring and conscious Mother, shares for our collective flourishing. Together these thirteen Letters form a sacred design that is like a living map for the actualization of our wisdom potentials.

“Part prayer, part meditation, part medium transmitted message, part invocation, part direct transmission, part guidebook, part diary of love letters in the tradition of Rumi writing to and of his beloved – Love Letters is a reminder of our essential oneness with all that emerges together with us in this dance of life, love, consciousness and light…This is the alchemy needed to transmute the present stage of human being to the next level of our evolutionary potential. This is indeed a book for time to come.” ~ Alexander Laszlo  (Ph.D.)

“Whether you’ve come to this planet to make a difference, or whether you’re lost and confused on how and why you got here, Anneloes Smitsman’s book is a must read. By structuring her narrative as 13 letters from our loving Mother the Earth and our father Sun she explores in depth the core reasons for how our dysfunctional and separated society arose. So this is no lightweight tome. The 3 keys to our salvation are explained in some detail, as well as the reason for our enslavement…The book explains that we are at the end of a major series of 16 cycles and it’s “crunch time.” If you want to know how to be prepared for this unique moment, and you should…. read this book, it will change your life!” ~ Lawrence Bloom (Ph.D.)

“This amazing book is in the same genre as Eckhart Tolle’s “The New Earth”, which was published more than 10 years ago. Now, “Love Letters from Mother Earth” takes us a step further and deeper into our understanding of our Planet as a conscious loving being. It is an essential book for our changing world. The author, Anneloes Smitsman, has an incredible access to wisdom and a beautiful way with words that explain why we are in our current paradigm, and how we can help heal our world to return it back to its wholeness, guided by the feminine wisdom of our Mother. For the receptive readers, this book as the power to awaken our true wisdom potentials, is a guide to be referred to and read over and over again.” ~ Justine Page

“If you enjoyed Rumi or Neale Donald Walsch, you will love this novel. I found this a guidebook, a loving reminder of our essential oneness and sacred feminine wisdom. As I read through each chapter I found my own consciousness opening up, evolving, and returning home to the essentials.” ~ Zenobia Beckett Ryken

“It is through our heart that we are restored to the wholeness that we are. When your presence centers in your heart, it informs your mind of all it needs to know. The power that is held inside us is the power through which the universe manifests itself. It is by this power that you heal yourself, that you restore yourself, and that you remember who we are.”

~ Anneloes Smitsman, Love Letters from Mother Earth 


VECTORS OF LOVE™ ~ “Each of us can become a Vector of Love.  You can start by asking these three fundamental questions:

  1.  What do I reach from – what is my point of origin?
  2. How far can I reach inside and outside myself – what is the magnitude of my reach?
  3. What am I reaching for & to – what is the direction of my reach?

All of us are faced with the same choice when confronted by fear, pain and conflict – do we close down or open to our humanity? By reaching in and out from a place of Love for each other, building bridges and keeping our focus on what truly matters, we become the Vectors of Love by which we support our world through and out of this crisis. Thank you”. – Anneloes SmitsmanEARTHwise CEO & Founder, TEDx ALC 2016

By the very nature of the problem that we have created, we have the greatest incentive for our conscious evolution – to learn consciously and not ‘by default’.

“I am very happy with the outcome of this training. This has enabled our young employees to discover their potential, and develop new skills so as to better face the very demanding day-to day life circumstances, both at the personal as well as the professional working life level.” Patrice Ithier – Manager, Mauritius Commercial Bank (MCB)

“This session has been constructive in a way that I have been able to learn more about myself. The keys to unlock my true potential. I have learned about being a leader, mistakes of leaders, and the role of leaders.” Jessica, M.V, Mauritius Commercial Bank (MCB)

“We have noted a significant change in the mindset of our pupils and staff, more committed to this just and laudable cause worth fighting for.” Jerry Lee Hon Chong – Rector of Loreto College Curepipe (Mauritius)

“The no nonsense approach helps you to engage with yourself honestly and from a place of deep truth. The support provided is invaluable as you strip away the layers that are holding you back and preventing you from living your fullest life.”  Jean Theron (South Africa)

“This course will enable the young of today to be aware of their potential and improve their life as a whole. It fills the gap where their education and upbringing has missed out on the development of these important ‘soft skills’.” Management TeamMauritius Commercial Bank (MCB)

“The professional coaching support was adapted to many dimensions of my life.The handling of energy in a positive way transformed, improved and aligned my purpose in life. A trusted and reliable mentoring program that cares not only for oneself, but also the people and the planet. I highly recommend the EARTHwise coaching programs.” Karen Alexandre (Mauritius)

“The coaching enhanced my understanding and ability to live my life from a whole self space, as opposed to allowing one aspect to dominate in an unbalanced way. I appreciated the way in which I was encouraged to connect with, and follow my own inner wisdom instead of relying upon the guidance or opinions of others.” Marianne Anglaret (United Kingdom)

“The wisdom, dedication and unwavering support provided led me to experience a total transformation, awakening me to my potential and the realisation of my own deep connection to Spirit. Using her extraordinary intuition, unfailing wisdom, patience and clarity Anneloes is a healer and a teacher of the highest caliber.” Sally Theron (South Africa)

“I was able to transform those deeper layers, which alone I was not able to reach. With respect for me and together with me we went to the source of a problem. Through the coaching sessions I was able to heal while also learning how to heal myself.” Ingrid Frints (the Netherlands)
