WHAT WE DO
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
TALKS & INTERVIEWS
VECTORS OF LOVE™ ~ “Each of us can become a Vector of Love. You can start by asking these three fundamental questions:
- What do I reach from – what is my point of origin?
- How far can I reach inside and outside myself – what is the magnitude of my reach?
- 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 Smitsman, EARTHwise CEO & Founder, TEDx ALC 2016
